Becoming a dad might feel real now – and it probably feels very real for your partner. She might be more uncomfortable as baby gets bigger and moves more.
The third trimester is the time to prepare for your birth support role, the hours after the birth and the first weeks of fatherhood. You could go to birth classes, talk to other men who are expecting or who’ve just become dads, and check out where your baby will be born.
It’s also a good time to think about your work and any changes you want to make – for example, negotiating parental leave and looking at your work-life balance.
