Does it all feel surreal?

That is understandable. However, now is the time to begin forging a relationship with the bundle of joy in your partner's belly. Talk, gently poke and tell little stories such as how you and your partner met.

If you still haven’t already gone with your partner to an ultrasound, a scheduled scan is provided by your local municipality between weeks 18-20. It’s then that you’re likely to see your child for the first time as well as discover its gender if you want to know that. If you haven’t received a scheduled time at your nearest prenatal clinic, get in touch with your midwife.
