    One of the best days of my life!

    Two days ago, my wife came home from the doctor as a followup for an illness she has had for about a week (sinus infection, bronchitis, nausea). Turns out two out of three were logical, but the nausea just didn't fit anything, but did match up with other symptoms my wife was experiencing. Well...

    I'M GONNA BE A DAD!

    7-8 weeks along, should have our first ultrasound in 3-4 weeks. Due date is my birthday, May 4.

    Don't you worry - while being a father takes priority, I'll have plenty of time for IQT/MQT if I make it into the next training group or two (or three). And when the baby does arrive, my wife and I have already discussed that it is important that one day a week we take the time to let one or the other relax for a while, so I'll still have time to fly with the 476 and meet the minimum requirements for flight hours.

    I'm SO excited. When I found out, I asked my wife if she was serious about a dozen times. Then I paced around the apartment for a good 30 minutes. I'm already going crazy (a good crazy), but I know that when we get the first ultrasound, I'll be 100% full bonkers.

    We had no idea. We were going to turn in an application to an adoption agency the same afternoon we found out we were going to have a baby. For years and years, we've been told we can't have kids due to medical conditions my wife has. Total surprise!!!

    Astro, congratulations ! I'm a 3-time dad and I know the feeling you're experiencing I wish your wife the best of luck with her pregnancy. And remember: be patient with her.

    Congrats Astro.
    I've got several friends that have struggled with getting a baby, so I can totally understand the joy of finally doing it.

    Congratulations Astro. You are both in for lots of joy. Time to think through how to fly with a little one on your lap.
