Congrats! Eight years ago I was in the same boat and dont regret it one bit. At first it can be a little trying but the time flies by and in no time you will be saying.. Dang! Remember when he/she was doing that.
I have a daughter and she is a definite "daddy's" girl. Gonna continue to enjoy her as much as I can until the boy thing ruin her. Those dudes are so screwed

Congrats on the great news! Fatherhood is a blast and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
1. Be sure to give the wifey extra love during the final prego months, you'll thank me later for it;
2. Be sure to be pro-active with the baby when he/she is here; don't let her tell you to change/care for the baby, give her a break (after all, you are not the one who grew it for 9+ months ;
3. Have fun with the whole 1st child thing. Take tons of pictures, celebrate every milestone and be sure to start that baby book (My girl is 7-months and I have yet to complete my portion and I'll be sure to let her know that daddy is a procrastinator lol)
Those crappy days at work mean nothing when you come home and see those eyes looking up at you and make you feel like a king. Congrats once again!

Congrats, having a baby is the most amazing thing in the world. Only advice I can think of that hasn't been posted is catch up on all your sleep now because its all going to change. And watch out for that mini me (I wasn't an angel) thing, my oldest 10 is just like me and were starting but heads way to much now.

A big congrats to you, bro! I have a 9 month old son right now, and we just found out that we've got another one on the way *faints*. There are times when you'll think your nerves can't take it anymore, you're going to encounter messes like you've never seen before, and you'll be exhausted all the time, but the good times make up for the bad times 100 fold. As another poster mentioned earlier, all it takes is that excited look or smile or laugh to melt your heart.
Dammit, I never talked like this before having kids. I'm a total sap now!
