Get the bump box from amazon. Hubby surprised me with that and I loved it. Go with her to her first OB appointment. Don’t take offense to the roller coaster of emotions or if she suddenly can’t stand the smell of you and never judge her for the random weird cravings. Just be supportive and always ask her what she needs. Congratulations and welcome to the adventure of parenthood

Yes ^ Eliminate all offensive smells most importantly your own, clean all the things. CARRY variety of SNACKS! Support exercising. Tell everyone you will stop traveling 4 weeks pre due date. Take all the parental leave available.

Please travel and take some time off in the second trimester of the pregnancy. Women usually feel their best, and you don’t really know when you’ll get the chance to go on a vacation alone just the two of you. My wife and I have a one month old now and we managed to sneak in two trips to Europe and a few weekend getaways last year! Also, take parenting classes, as a new father I can vouch that these help - what you can expect during labor, delivery, post partum and then taking care of a newborn.

Wonderful. Congratulations

You may not want to switch jobs then. If you're in the USA, fmla requires 12 months of service and also most companies have paternity leave requirements as well.

ACN also will let you do a 2 month LOA

Congrats!!!!

I do consulting work but my day job is as a Chief Development Officer at a nonprofit. Problem is my “home” and family is a 7+ hour drive away. I work 3 weeks each month and have an apartment for this job, but work remote at home for 1 week. They pay me well and have been doing it 2 years. I love the mission of the nonprofit but time away from home is getting tough. Just saying it loud and realizing it is probably time to consider a new job at “home”.
