Well it looks like my golf playing is going to have to take a back seat for awhile 'cause I'm going to be a Dad! After fifteen years of thinking that I was infertile due to the effects of radiation and chemotherapy, from two bouts of cancer I had, it turns out I wasn't shooting blanks after all. My wife and I had been trying, but not very seriously. We had just started talking about getting fertility checks and such when she caught. I'm a lucky guy!

Congrats!

There's very little that can compare to the humbling and awe-inspiring experience that is parenthood. And don't forget to take good care of your wife...the whole "miracle of motherhood" thing isn't an easy process.

Just remember that when your wife, during childbirth, is screaming that she hates you and that it's all your fault and look what you've done to her....She probably doesn't mean it.

It's always thrilling to become a father, but when you thought it may never happen, suddenly finding out that it'll after all must be especially wonderful.

Congratulations to you and your wife!

There is no greater accomplishment in life than being a good parent...I wish you the best of luck.

Savor every moment you have with your child, because they grow up all too quickly.

Yeah
It is somehow like arkham horror.
You are an investigator going into the unknown.

And you draw interesting cards

The "Stomach Ache" headline: "Alfull screams fill the air around you, so you are at -5 to all checks, in order to remove this headline you must recover the potion from the FRIDGE territory and bring it back succesfully"

and you also have number of items that require upkeep rolls every 3 hours:
"Baby bottle"
"Daipers"

So congratulations, I hope everything is ok, and have fun

P.S. I am speaking from personal experiance:>

Congrats! Start planning now, infants are worth serious geekgold if you can work them into a session report.

Congratulations!

I have a two year old and one on the way in January

two things though

1) gaming bits and babies do not mix. Your bits will get chewed or swallowed. They just look so good Om nom nom
2) The first poo is supposed to look like that. You have not given birth to some kind of hellspawn.

Good luck to you and your wife
