DONT miss the birth... it was the best thing i ever experienced watching my first getting born.

It's a must see. I watched both of my kids pop out.

I got to cut the cords and helped with the afterbirth too.

Watching child birth is incredible. My wife was in labor for about 18 hours with my daughter. She did great. They were prepping a different room for a C section when my daughter's head started to crown. I was yelling, the doctor came in, pushed me out of the way and caught my daughter on a 180 degree flip. I wish I had it on video. I cut the cord and held her for about 2 minutes before they took her to clean her up and check her out. It was great. My wife was a total trooper. I've been on farms in my youth so the afterbirth wasn't any big deal, I wanted to help. The doctor called for the "plop bucket" for the afterbirth. I'll never forget that. I remember it perfectly since it was right before my first serious head trama. Shes 24 years old now.

I don't remember too much about my sons birth(post head trama). Labor was much harder and more painful but quicker(about 4 hours total). I remember rubbing my wifes back so hard my arms gave out. She gave birth about 5 minutes later. It was still way cool, but the doctors and nurses kind of blocked the view I had the first time. I let them deal with the afterbirth since I was holding my son. The next thing I remember is sleeping in the chair afterwards and getting harrassed from the nurses some.

Having kids is great, nothing else is like it.

I just wish I never had the head trama. I don't remember too much about them growing up.


Don't worry... Be happy!!!

Oh you'll do fine. Don't worry about the diaper changes, 2 AM feedings, breast feeding (your nipples only hurt for a couple of weeks) untied shoelaces, baby barf, monsters under the bed, first day at school, first dates, driving lessons, college tuition........piece of cake.
Congrats. Blessings to you and your wife.

You should be out riding, not drinking. Save the drinking for later when you can't ride...

Christian,

Don't forget the being sick for months at a time once the little one enters school. They like to share the bugs and bring them home to Mom and Dad.

Congrats on the little one. I actually delivered my little girl in our bed 2 years ago. We had planned a home birth with a mid-wife but when I made the call to the mid-wife and her assistant they figured we were just nervous and exaggerating on the situation so they took there time getting to us. That proved to be a bad idea in DC traffic and my better half couldn't wait any longer so we did it ourselves and WOW was that an experience. Being the first person my daughter saw when she was born had to be the best moment of my life and I still tear up just thinking about it. We are planning on doing the same thing for the next kid also and thankfully we are 5 minutes from the hospital so if anything were to go wrong we could get medical help quickly.

On another note does anyone have a shock laying around for a 90ish xr600 (any differences in the shocks after 1990)? I've been trying to find an aftermarket shock but have had zero luck so I need a few spares so I can try a bunch of different shim stacks in one outing. I may make a call to ohlins to see if they could make one, I had their shock (TTX) on my xr400 and it was SWEET! Or does anyone have any other ideas, or know of any other shocks that will bolt on? Thanks for any help and I'll post some more pictures of the pig after the race on sunday.

Also, can someone who has a conventional cartridge fork please measure from the center of the front axle to the top of the fork tube with the front wheel off the ground? I'm trying to make sure I don't upset my geometry with the USD forks from the crf450x.
