Only due to the fact that my partner is nearing 40 weeks pregnancy and I am expecting a baby girl anytime soon (the next few days to up to the next two weeks!)

So if you don't hear from me for a while (in the forums here or elsewhere I frequent) you guys now know why :).

Do you get paternity leave over there? 

Why not do some articles about the third trimester from a man's point of view.

And ones about the pain and heartache YOU are going through.

Plus a dictionary of the words used during childbirth.

Just a few thoughts - last thought: congrats, hope everything goes well, enjoy!

This conjured up a picture of you typing up a Wizzley article with a baby carrier sling strapped to you with the little one in it., like a  baby Joey in a kangaroo pouch.  Congratulations to you and the family, enjoy.

Thanks Everyone.

Obviously everyone will know once it is all said and done.

We are getting as much rest as we can now, we realise that energy and time is rapidly consumed once your in the 'thick' of deep labour.

@Chaz, we don't get Paternity leave here in Australia yet, and the Labour Govt is looking into providing one weeks paid Paternity leave from the 1st January 2013. So I miss out on that!!!

I will however, be taking 3 weeks annual leave.

I will also have quite an extensive lists of niches to write about here on Wizzley and elsewhere about the third trimester and what can be expected from a fathers point of view.

@2uesday, funny you should mention that as we recently purchased a Hugabub, which incidentally will look like our baby is in a Kangaroo pouch when being worn :)
