What to expect when sheÂs expecting
Your psychological roadmap from conception through new fatherhood.
After the baby
After the baby arrives, your wife will still be on a wild E-ticket ride fueled by hormonal emotions. You might feel a little testy toward each other, even as you’re adoring your new creation, but don’t worry: Those feelings will pass, especially when you catch up on some sleep.
The fourth tri-mester marks a change in your family’s pecking order, however. Visitors will brush you aside on their way to kiss the new mom and coo over the baby. Don’t worry: Pretty soon, your child will start thinking you’re the greatest — and you’ll find there’s nothing better than being Dad.
