Do you think that you and your partner are on the same page when it comes to parenting styles?  Do either of you have specific desires when it comes to such topics as breastfeeding, labor, discipline, etc.?

As far as birth/baby choices I just assume he'll take my lead. He's never come out with an opinion on that stuff. But down the road, other parenting styles will become evident. One thing I'm concerned about is his attitude toward food - he's a very unhealthy eater, loves fried food and hates fruits and veggies. I'm no health nut myself, but I want my kids to be exposed to lots of healthy foods and to learn to make good choices. I grew up obese because my parents didn't control what snacks were in the house or teach us how to eat reasonably. I don't want that for my kids - but it's going to be hard.

You grew up obese because you had no self control. I wish people would quit blaming others for their bad choices.
