My husband is 45 and wanted children yesterday. When I found out on New Year’s Day and handed him the test, he started sobbing. I believe that my husband was put on this earth to be a dad, and even when I’m hormonal or overtired, I am so happy I can do this for him. I’ve never seen any human as full of joy as he was at that moment.
>What do you look forward to most?
I can’t wait to know this little human being.
>Any advice for newly pregnant women?
Read everything you can get your hands on, so you are not surprised by things like varicose veins or a bloody nose. It reduces your anxiety. I also recommend Jenny McCarthy’s book [Belly Laughs: The Naked Truth About Pregnancy and Childbirth; Da Capo Press, 2004]. It’s hilarious. Knowledge is truly power going into a pregnancy.
