To the Father of my baby

Okay girls, snigger if you wish, but I am looking for a card or a poem which I can give to my OH on the birth of our baby. With 4 weeks left to go I wanted something to acknowledge our journey to conceive and carry our little one before another new journey begins.
Seems I can find a card for every other occasion but nothing specially for this. If anyone can help, or point me in the direction of a website that I can look at I'd appreciate it if you could let me know!
Thank you!


  • Hi Tracey,
    I've never been on it myself but have you tried ??
    It's supposed to do some really good cards that you can personalise.
  • Hi i've just been having a look on moonpig can't see any there am trying to rack my brains but i have wool for brains at moment so don't hold your breath!:lol:
  • Ooh cloclo you make me laugh. That wool you have for brains is it the wool from the yellow dungarees you were given!?!?!?!
    I can find some nice poems from things like Fathers Day but nowt that sums up our journey together. Anyhoo, if you find anything keep me posted!
  • will do, i know you really want them dungas! xo
  • Hi Rosered, we're having a surprise and I can't wait! Just off to have a look at that link now......
  • hi again try googling poams for new fathers it came up with a few things hope you find something xo
  • Hi,
    I have found a few poems. Not sure if they are appropriate. Will email them to you
  • hi tracey i work for clinton cards and they a do 2 or 3 different designs for "to my husband on the birth of our baby" or "to the one I love on the birth of our baby" they also do wife too so you can drop hints so you get one too! :\)

    they'll be with the new baby/christening cards, but if you can't see them then ask as they tend to be doubled up with something else! :roll:

  • Cheers Wenders, that's great. I shall go and have a look in the week
  • thats such a lovely oh isn't into nice things lol
    i did get him a fathers day card from bump and he seemed touched
    maybe there is hope?
  • that sounds like a gr8 idea, wud never of thought bout it, have u not tried writing sumthing yrself, im crap at poems! i was going to suggest moonpig as thats the only 1 ive heard of, sorry no help xx
  • Well I did think about writing him a letter but each time I start I end up crying and totally over emotional about everything! Might just have to pull myself together....!!!
  • theres no harm in getting emotional hun, that way u can put how u really feel x gd luck

  • Hi ladies

    POEM 1
    Before you were conceived, I wanted you
    Before you were born, I loved you
    Before you were here an hour,
    I would die for you
    This is the miracle of love.

    POEM 3
    "Remember You're Her Daddy"

    Remember you're her daddy
    when she's crying late at night,
    when she needs a little loving
    to know that it's alright.
    Remember you're her daddy
    when dolly's lost an arm,
    when you take the time to fix it
    because you can't resist her charm.
    Remember you're her daddy
    when she's had a real rough day,
    when school's been pretty tough on her
    and nothings went her way.
    Remember you're her daddy
    when she goes on her first date,
    when you tell her to be in by ten
    and she's not home 'till late.
    Remember you're her daddy
    when she makes you very proud,
    when in a very awkward way
    she stands out in a crowd.
    Remember you're her daddy
    the first man she's ever kissed,
    and when you go away
    you'll be very, very, missed.
    Remember you're her daddy
    remember I'm your wife,
    we know that you'll love us
    for the rest of your life.

    POEM 4
    The Best Man I Ever Knew

    When we married, I saw you as perfect,
    The ideal husband and more;
    I thought I knew all about you,
    All the things to love and adore.
    But when you became a father,
    I saw new qualities to treasure.
    You enrich all our lives in fresh ways;
    As a dad, you bring so much pleasure.
    Our child/children is/are forever blessed
    To have a father like you,
    And I love you more than ever,
    You're the best man I ever knew.

    POEM 5
    My Daddy's Hands

    I came into the world
    And reached for your strong hands,
    My tiny fingers knew you,
    Before I could understand.
    Your hands proudly held me,
    And smoothed my newborn hair.
    They'd grow to love and tickle,
    And toss me in the air.
    Your hands are the teachers,
    That catch and throw a ball.
    That steady my two-wheeler,
    And soften each new fall.
    Your hands are the guideposts,
    That set and keep the rules.
    Offer good advice and wisdom,
    And cheer hard work in school.
    Your hands are my anchor,
    As I leave my childhood home.
    Shake my hand and pat my back,
    As I live life on my own.
    One day I'll have a child,
    And come to understand.
    The power of love,
    Held in my Daddy's hands.
  • Thanks Tracey, good idea. (Have been meaning to email you back, sorry for being so crap!!)
    A couple of these I am thinking of using as they are so lovely. I have found a few 'to my OH' cards but they are v general and I was looking for something which sums up our journey together really so a poem like this is going to be the way to go I think!
  • Hi there
    Hope u r well. I am just a bit bored now !! Wishing this week away at the moment. Just lazing around doing nothing. Watching rubbish on TV and eating ! We had a lovely weekend, the last for us as a couple !!!!
    Catch up soon
  • Hi ladies,

    Think this is a lovely idea and had been looking for something myself. Thanks though Tracey4, I've just read the poems you posted and cried my eyes out! Have copied them and may use them in a card.

    Am 34 + 3 now and getting very excited/nervous.

    Good luck to us all!! Nearly there now!
