20 Week Scan

I said I would update you on the 20 week scan… and here I am.

Everything is normal and healthy – although the babies legs are a little on the short side. The sonographer said that they were in the normal range, but on the shorter end of normal. Both me and my mum have short legs, so this wasn’t a huge surprise. I figure, I grew to be normal height for a girl 5″5/6 so I figure this baby will too. Mum said I was short for a baby, but I am average height now. Also the donor was 6″3 so I am hoping that his genes will take over the height issue. Although my dad is not tall for a guy, only 5″7/8….

Anyway… Scans…

So – as you can see – our baby is a wriggler, it didn’t stop moving the whole scan, and infact the sonographer complained that she couldn’t get a clear shot for the measurements because it wouldn’t stay still!

Explains all the jabs and pokes I have been feeling!!

Anyway… before I tell you what it is…. Lets have a vote…..

Who thinks its a girl, and who thinks it’s a boy?

Got the all clear :)

So yesterday we have our 12 week scan which put me a little further ahead than we thought- 12 weeks and a day rather than the 11 + 6 we thought I was. Anyway suffice to say the scan was all clear and that put us in the clear which means we are officially pregnant and I can officially tell people 🙂 so what did I do go straight out after work and buy our first little outfit!!

The relief is ridiculous!

Will post more later

Properly Pregnant! :O

Baby

7 Weeks 5 Days

I will be honest, despite taking roughly a billion pregnancy tests, I was most definitely in denial. I tried walking round Kiddicare and Mothercare, two HUGE baby shops, but I just… I duno, it didn’t sink in.

I have spent at least the last month in shock and denial. Not daring to get excited, or believe it is true.

I guess the doctors had drummed in the negativity so much, I forgot that I could actually be pregnant.

Last night, sure set me straight.

We had our first scan. An early pregnancy and dating scan. I could just about make out the head, you can’t in the photo but you could on the screen. But more mind blowing, you could see the heart beat.

The image of last night is so clear, sat in this dark relaxing room screen in front of me, nerves coursing through my body…

I watched as he prodded my bloated belly and up on the screen came this tiny little splodge… with an even tinier beating heart. I stared shell shocked, as the wife bounced around her seat saying

“OH MY GOD, THERES A HEART BEAT, LOOK A HEART BEAT!!!”

My whole world halted, the wifes voice became a muffled cheer as I stared shell shocked at a beating heart. That moment felt like a life time, and then a huge wave of shock punched me in the chest, and I broke down and cried.

Well it explains the throwing up… which is all the time!
