Having your first child

For me, I think the desire to have one’s own children is natural. As soon as you become an adult and you begin to approach the age when you can get married, you begin to think about children. This happens more when you have friends who have children already. When you see the beautiful kids of your friends, the desire to have you own children increases. Babies are the sweetest creatures in the world. So innocent and so pure. They smell so nice and make you fill like carrying and kissing their cheeks all the time. If you are getting married or you plan to have kids, there a few things you need to know.

For you to have children, you have to get your wife pregnant! Some women get pregnant easily and others not so easily. As a man, you need to be patient and continue encouraging your wife and doing your work in the bedroom. Life is not the same for everyone. Some things come easily to some people and some people have to work hard for the things other people obtained easily. As long as you and your wife have no health issues, it is only a matter of time before she gets pregnant. After she conceives, the next stage is the Waiting Stage.

The nine months you have before your baby is delivered can be a trying one. You will see several changes in your wife. Some changes may be quiet alarming. Some of the changes include weight gain(can be significant in some women), short temper, allergies to some foods, swollen nose and face etc. As a man, you need to understand that she is not in control of these changes. They are natural. This means that you will need to put in more effort to have a peaceful and happy home. You will need to be more patient and more loving. This nine-month period is also a time to save up for the delivery of your baby. It is wise to consider saving more money for delivery via C-Section in case it is impossible for her to deliver the baby naturally.

Your wife will need to go shopping for the new baby. This can be done after you have known the sex. This will help her know exactly what she will be shopping for.

Delivery day is usually a day filled with mixed emotions. You will be happy that the baby is coming finally and you will be hoping that your wife has a safe delivery. If you are in paid employment, it will be wise to ask your boss for a few days off so you can take care of her. She will need all the support and encouragement she can get  as the delivery day is the day she will feel the most pain.

When the baby finally arrives your heart will be filled with so much joy that you quickly forget all the stress and pains of the last nine months. Your first child has arrived and your life will never be the same again.
