It's Positive! You're Pregnant! Well technically, you aren't pregnant. That would be a medical miracle. Your wife is pregnant. But you are expecting, too, in a way. You're not a dad yet - you're a DUE DAD...and you don't have a clue what to expect about paternity and being a new dad (in the long term) and having a pregnant wife in the short term. Don't panic - the good news is that you've made it through the 'typically-more-difficult first trimester'.

In this lesson, Second Trimester Part 1, the DadLabs dads (all experienced but not so distantly so that they don't know what you're going through and what you need to watch out for) talk you through all kinds of things, including:
- complimenting her
- shopping for maternity clothes
- passive people
- birthing classes
- side effects of second trimester

Even though expecting a baby has nothing to do with football playoffs, grilling excellent steaks, margin calls, fuel injection, or cold brewskis, this series of DadLabs lessons will teach you what you need to know to get you safely and happily to that big 0th birthday:

This lesson, and its predecessor (Part 1) are a good reminder or introduction to the Dad-to-be that there is a trimester that most women feel better. These are full of great information on helping your wife sleep, making her feel good both physically and emotionally, and going to do stuff as a couple. There's also a section on birthing classes, which seem to dreaded by guys. Excellent tips!
