Advice from Four New Dads

The Cigar Club Shares Tips
-- By BabyFit Dads

Note: This article is about the real stuff guys are thinking about before, during and after pregnancy. It is meant to mix a healthy dose of humor to deal with topics that are often uncomfortable and unfamiliar to men. BabyFit.com believes women should know what the men in their lives are thinking about during their pregnancy regardless of how serious or silly it can be.

There are a lot of things going on in a man's head during the 9 months that their partner is pregnant. Wouldn't you like to know what they are thinking about? Here is your chance! BabyFit sat down with four of its employees, Dave H., Chris D., Josh K. and Kevin C., all of whom became fathers recently.

BabyFit: What advice would you give soon-to-be dads for helping mom out?

Chris D.: The biggest thing is to stay relaxed. I think that potential new dads tend to focus on all of the crazy changes that are going to happen, versus the good things.

Kevin C.: Listen to your wife. Her body is definitely changing.

CD: You have to be willing to take more stuff.

Josh K.: And be more forgiving.

KC: It's easy to get caught up in the financial changes too that's going to take place and I think you need to think about that.

"I loved this. We forget that our husband has his own set of things to worry about during this period, and the fact that a lot of men don't do that much expressing doesn't make it easy for us to know what is going on in their heads. I am glad I read this!" -- MSMISSIONARY07
"Love it! Thanks for posting. Sometimes we as women forget that our husbands are going through this with us too and they may be just as scared. Great article!" -- STACEYSKI
