So we went for another baby scan yesterday, and it was the first time my wife and I had been to the new hospital. We're still trying to figure out the best route to the hospital, as the one we used yesterday went along a very narrow country road for a bit too long !!
Anyway, the scan went well, the baby has a bit of hair on her head :) all is well, and we had a little chat with the doctor afterwards. The experience was very different from the London hospital, a lot less overcrowded, andÂ I would have to say, a lot more professional (and cleaner!). Anyway, we've been told to be on standby from next week, and if nothing happens after 41 weeks, we should come in to book an induction of labour. Had a chat about pain relief, and I have to say, I now have a new found appreciation for women, and what they have to go through to give birth. We men should consider ourselves lucky !!
While the nurse was taking my wife's blood yesterday, I couldn't even look !! How am I going to cope with watching her give birth? Needles, bloodÂ and hospitals in general make me very nervous and queasy. GOD HELP ME.
