    Thanks, can't say that I'm very happy about it though.

    19 now, soon to be 20. Not exactly "ready" for this

    when is someone ready? you'll be a great dad. hang in there, we are all pulling for you man. I'm almost 27 with no kids and I would love to have, at least, one right now. I'm getting married in a couple months and I hope to have the lady convinced by then, but I won't rush her.

    Good luck and keep your head up.

    If you wait to have kids when you ready or more financially secure, then you'll never have them. Either that or you end up being too old to be having them in the first place.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Yep, that's my case now! I'm 44 and am 3 weeks away or so of having another baby(Well, my wife willl be doing the "having" part ). Can you say "oops"? We're very excited though, it's just that we thought we were in a different "place" now. First few months I was mainly just stunned, now I'm pretty excited for him to get here. TeamSelig, you'll be fine....I'd have honestly rather done this at your age than mine!

    Congratulations!

    My son is almost 6 months old now, and it's quite a ride. There are sleepless nights and lots of worries, but those all melt away each time he smiles.

    Well you know what they say, "Ready or not, here I come" - Good luck. It's the greatest feeling in the world. My first is almost 24 and all of them are baseball fans.

    Of course, Reds' management thanks you because they need to keep adding to the fan base!

    Seriously, good luck.

    No one is ever "ready."

    I wasn't as young as you are when I found out for the first time that I was going to be a Dad, and I wasn't ready then, either. It did change me though, and in a very good way. It made me grow up. For that, I will forever be thankful. Good luck to you. Hang in there. If you need anything, just ask. Many of us on this board have gone through what you're going to go through and would be glad to help in whatever way we can.

    Congratulations! Even if it is a girl, she must wear REDS uniforms (convince her Mommy to allow this)...

    Couldn't have said it better myself.

    Ready Or Not
    Jackson Browne

    Someone's going to have to explain it to me
    I'm not sure what it means
    My baby's feeling funny in the morning
    She's having trouble getting into her jeans
    Her waist-line seems to be expanding
    Although she never feels like eating a thing
    I guess we'll reach some understanding
    When we see what the future will bring

    I met her in a crowded barroom
    One of those typical Hollywood scenes
    I was doing my very best Bogart
    But I was having trouble getting into her jeans
    I punched an unemployed actor
    Defending her dignity
    Well he stood up and knocked me through that barroom door
    And that girl came home with me

    Now baby's feeling funny in the morning
    She says she's got a lot on her mind
    Nature didn't give her any warning
    Now she's going to have to leave her wild ways behind
    She says she doesn't care if she never spends
    Another night running loose on the town
    She's gonna be a mother
    Take a look in my eyes and tell me brother
    If I look like I'm ready

    I told her I had always lived alone
    And I probably always would
    And all I wanted was my freedom
    And she told me that she understood
    But I let her do some of my laundry
    And she slipped a few meals in between
    And the next thing I remember, she was all moved in
    And I was buying her a washing machine

    My baby's feeling funny in the morning
    She says she's got a lot on her mind
    Nature didn't give her any warning
    But she's feeling better about it all the time
    She says she's ready for some meaning
    After all of her running around
    Well bless my soul, she's got a rock-and-roll bandman
    Thinking 'bout settling down

    Pay attention to the open sky
