How long did it take for dad to warm up to bub?

He is a lovely guy though and he's pretty confident that he will get excited in time. I think like many others have said, that without the bump it's hard for them to feel like it's real.

I think the problem is that they feel a bit redundant & left out. I mean us girls get to experience a lot of changes, but really, nothing changes as such for the guys. They don't feel any different, nothing looks different..... KWIM?? They've done their bit & now its all about Mum & baby.
I try to think of ways to make Alan feel more involved & connected with what's happening & I think that has helped.
He's VERY excited about our first ultrasound next week!

We also found out that he was a boy at 12 weeks (flashed his willy at us!) so we felt a connection to a little boy, rather than just a baby, a bit sooner, if that makes sense?
One benefit of an IVF pregnancy is that the man can be really quite involved. There are no surprises, after all, and Mark got to release the embryos into my womb, so he felt part of it, and it felt much less like a medical procedure.

Poor H2b missed the first ultrasound as he was so sick in bed and could not walk. However the first time he saw my tummy move he was so excited, it was like it suddenly became a reality. Kinda like a little boy who wishes and wishes for a fire truck and then finally gets the biggest and best one you have ever seen and is not quite sure what to do with it. It was so funny watching his reaction. And to think this is not his first...

It's true that it was hard to get into the thought of being a father while Leila was still in the womb.
But while the memory has suffered from sleep deprivation, there is no way I'm going to forget the 26 hours or so that led to Leila joining us. It was a very special time, and it continues to be very special to us both.

He really thinks that we are having a boy though - he is the only one!!!
And I am a bit concerned that if Babar turns out to be a girl that he will be disappointed!
