20 week scan. We are having a …

…baby! We had decided we didn’t want to find out and we are sticking with our choice (even though I am curious!)

So we are Team Yellow all the way.   Cannot wait to find out in May. 

I was pretty nervous this morning and, as I hadn’t felt little Freddie move since my routine night time toilet trip, I couldn’t help but worry. Hubby kept telling me baby was sleeping but I’m sure it’s totally natural to be worried before a scan. 

When we got to the hospital there were already lots of people waiting and a sign to say there were system issues this morning and waiting times may be longer than usual. I didn’t mind, but my very full bladder did! After holding it in for what seems like days, we got called in and as the sonographer scanned we could see a little beating heart 😊

She talked us through each part in so much detail and I was amazed by the beauty of the spine and little foot 😍

   

 Although I only have a tiny bump, the baby is measure perfectly. Apparently I have strong stomach muscles holding it all in – I hope that means after birth my tummy will return to its nice flat state?! 

I feel like we can now start to think nursery and buying baby things. Exciting times ahead!

    Ahh, isn’t it so lovely to see all the different parts of their body? I couldn’t believe how much had grown and developed between the two scans – amazing. Maybe next time we see our little ones, they’ll be in our arms!

    Even at full term my bump is pretty compact – everyone says it is small. But in all my scans, right up to 36 weeks, baby was measuring average or just under average, so a small bump doesn’t mean a small baby.

      Just been measured by midwife and I’m 2cm under but she said they will just keep monitoring. A friend measured small all the way through and had extra scans and then when baby came she was 8lb+ so I know it’s not an exact science!
