WOW! Congrats!  That's great!  Advice?  Whatever your wife wants/needs/desires get it for her.  Tell her how beautiful she is and how much you love her.   Today is all about her.  Be her servant.  Tell her proud you are.  Say nothing that could be construed negatively (not that you would of course).   

 

By the way, is the baby a boy or girl (not that it matters)?

Found this beautiful Jos A Bank Harris Tweed. What do you think? 50s or 60s?

Congrats Hans! Solid advice from everyone here, would also add to remember to stick to the birth plan if you guys made one. Only the wife gets to call audibles.

 

I also am a pillow guy, I guess. Was told if you are down there it's some Walking Dead stuff you cannot unsee.

@SpooPoker: Great looking Windows, you definitely have the eye for it!

Congrats on the new arrival, Hans! +1 on what everyone has said so far. We had ours at home so I helped the mid-wife and her assistant with anything they needed from downstairs, but it was all done with before it knew it. The whole night is a blur, though. My wife kept a journal of that whole day and she is glad she did. With everything going on, your perception of time is lost.

Hans, here are some good tips from a childless SFer:

 

-"Stop being so dramatic."

-"Babe, can you go get me a Pepsi?"

-"It can't be THAT bad."

-Eat a Subway sandwich. (Hopefully they have Subway where you are)

-Keep putting your phone really close to her face and show her funny YouTube videos. Make sure the volume is cranked.

-Watch TV and keep saying "shhhhhh...I don't want to miss this."

Congrats @HansderHund !  

 

Only one YouTube video is appropriate:

In other news, I just sold the Highwaymen painting.

Congrats, 330, having a good week! Hans wins tho, but if it's taking too long and they start talking about a C-section, you can break out the Doritos.

Welcome @Picking Profits. I've seen just about all your youtube vids. I listen to them in the background while I take measurements. Watching/listening to others loving and doing the same thing we do is motivational for me.

 

Anyway. Got any labels inside the interior pockets?

Wow, you've got some serious YouTube following! Wife is out tonight, I'll watch some. And welcome.
