I am shortly to become a great-grandmother again - in about a month. Today my grand-daughter sent me a photograph of her thirty two week scan, showing the baby sucking its fist. (they do not want to know the sex beforehand).
It took me back fifty-eight years ago, when I was expecting my son. Then you went to the doctor when you suspected you might be pregnant, he sent you to a clinic attached to the maternity unit where you had chosen to have the baby and you went there once a month. That was it really.
Now there are so many 'photographs', blood tests and the like - progress is staggering really. I suppose it is the same in all areas of
health, but they certainly keep their eye on you, which is good.
So I shall keep you informed of progress from now on. Looks like only four more weeks to go. She is still teaching as I write this and is feeling very well, so I hope now that all goes well for her.
