I'm not sure when Eugenie is due, but I find it so cute that these two are expecting at the same time. I cant really recall much interaction between the two, but it's nice to think they are perhaps sharing their experiences and supporting one another. A few of my friends have given birth in the UK in the last 9 months, and although Zara and Eugenie will receive the best care, it is still a frightening and potentially lonely time for mothers-to-be. I say mothers as NHS hospitals are not allowing fathers to be present at important events like scans etc.
Congrats to Zara!
I wish her a wonderful and stressfree pregnancy.
I had to do all scans alone as well, which was at times of course not easy. In the end however its still the mother having to make the decisions so it is in fact no real change whether your partner is with you or you just have to call him afterwards (which I always did). Of course it's something else, if it's bad news you're getting and don't have someone on your side.
At the birth father's are allowed (at least were I live). Well it's special times, but if we all work together they will certainly/hopefully be better soon.
