My name is leslie. i'm a college student and taking a developmental psychology. i need to interview an expectant father with some questions about becoming a father. here are the following questions that i need right away from someone i don't know for my class: 1) what are your feelings about becoming a father, 2) how have you've been involved in your partner's pregnancy?, 3) what part will you play in your child's pregnancy? what part would you like to play? 4) what do you think being "a good father" means? 5) how will having a child change your life? i need these responses right away for my class and i would appreciate the responses. thank you for your help. thanks, leslie

I just found out that she's pregnant and i'm really excited but everyone keeps asking why i don't show it. i want to, i just don't know how. how do you even begin to show excitement for a new life? this is my first and i'm not afraid. i think that's the issue because she's terrified about money and my response is always, "we'll figure it out." i think my lack of reaction there is causing pierre to think i'm not excited. plus, she's so emotional that none of my reactions even rate compared to hers for normal things.

Well, where to begin.. i just found out that i am about 6 weeks pregnant. after careful consideration, my boyfriend and i thought we should try to have a baby. all red flags went off in my head, he has a 5 year old son, he's 32 and he lives... well at home... :( not excatly the winner, i know. but like any dumb girl, at 26, i decided, he's ready for this, maybe he'll grow up.... blah blah blah... so the day comes for me to tell him, i'm super excited. i get a pair of baby booties and my pos test, and put them in a shoe box. i tell him i got him shoes, he opens with a smile and quickly the smile fades... his on;y response "i need a drink"... well 2 bottles of wine later and he passes out. i'm so scared that after everything, i might be doing it on my own. i guess the red flags didn't look so bad with rose colored glasses on... :(

Hi samantha so yes the best thing to do is to let him mature on his own if you just tell him to or argue to him about it. it just won't work you have to let him feel it inside and think it through that this baby your having is a lot responsibility and that your gonna need a lot of his support and comfort. so as for going to doctor visits and baby shopping as him talk to him about it give him the choice but at the same time letting him know how important for you it is for him to be there. without making it seem like he has to be there by force.

Iam 9 weeks pregnant and my current boyfriend (that ive been with for about 5 yrs now) continues to be a little immature. he cares about my needs a great deal but has no idea what i am actually going through. i try to get him to read more into pregnancy and understand my point of view and maybe that will help him understand more and make him a little more aware and mature. i will admit i am pressuring him alot to start to change his ways and "grow up" but they do say "the moment a women is pregnant she becomes a mother and a man becomes a father when he holds his baby''. should i just back off and let him mature on his own since i am early in pregnancy or should i continue to nag his to ''grow up'' (which i think isnt a good idea) just need some advice.

You're lucky! you'll only have to deal with hardened fighters, determined to kill you and your brothers-in-arms, the rest of us guys have to stay home with our pregnant wives. oh how i envy you!!!
