Congrats Luke, great news for you both.
It's a great journey. But expect consequences in all areas of your life!
For example, when it happened for me, I ended up losing one of these:
And getting one of these:
And eventually when it became two, one of these:
I still wouldn't change it for the world though!
It's worth looking at Amazon Subscribe and Save for Nappies and Wipes once you find ones you are happy with and get into the swing of how many you're using. The regular deliveries are convenient and the saving worthwhile.
Above all, enjoy!

congratulations, its fantastic as you've already got nieces and nephews start dropping hints to them for hand me downs ( things like a moses basket there only in it ten mins) cot beds that might just have been grown out of etc and start the stock up on nappies and wipes
Congrats Luke, there's nothing like being a DAD... it's wonderful and full of joy... even at hard times!!
Well done that man!!
Being a dad is epic, and great fun. You have a real chance to make yourself proud. For example the day you go to their school plays or the day you take them to their first sports match, or the day they say dada, or learn to walk...its all good!!
Congratulations it'll be the best thing you'll ever do, and I feel confident saying that despite having no idea at all about any of your life achievements to date. My two boys are 20 months and 5 months now, and if you want to know just how quickly babies grow through their clothes - the younger of those two is wearing 12-18 month size clothes now.
Get a TENS machine for the labour. I have no idea if it really works or not (though my missus swore by it, and got through both those births with no other pain relief (scared of the epidural and gas and air makes her feel sick, not because she's some sort of martyr!)) but the important thing is that it gives you, as a man, a button to push. When your missus is incomprehensible amounts of pain and can't control her screaming and doesn't even seem to recognise you, having something to do with your hands, and feeling like you're making some sort of contribution (minor as it is), is invaluable.
