Guys with pregnant wives

Hi all
Has anyone here had the same experience as me? The situation is as follows.
There's a guy in my class called "L**" who we'll just call Sexy Boy for the purpose of this thread to protect the innocent. He was the most laid back guy I know. If he could've done Aikido lying down he would have done as he was almost horizontal. However, his wife (who also does Aikido) has now fallen pregnant. (Can the guilty party please step forward!?!?)
We had a special weapons training night and Sexy Boy has now, overnight, become so uptight and tense we had to prise his fingers off the jo and bokkens with a crow bar he was gripping them so hard.
Is this a one off or are there others out there who are like Sexy Boy and uptight about the impending patter of tiny zori sandals?
For all who know Sexy Boy you know how transformed he is.

Tony

Yeah, it happens. I had a real hard time with kokyu exercises for the duration of the pregnancy. It'll pass, but it may take the full 10 months .

The birthing process, his wife's health, paying for medical care, and impending fatherhood are all probably weighing pretty heavily on "Sexy boy's" mind...

but if you think he's uptight now, just wait until he's a dad.

Yeah, wait for his sleepless nights. Then he's really going to get crabby.

Re: Guys with pregnant wives

My wife is pregnant now (with number 2). She is a shodan in Aikido and is fairly scary with her hormonally enhanced aikido.

I was a wreck on the first one. Scared as could be. I like to think I'm handling this pregnancy better since I know the joys of being a dad.

Life is change. Sexy boy sounds like he is running head first into a randori that he doesn't have any idea how to handle. He'll calm down....eventually.
