20 week scan


We had our 20 week scan today and all is hunky-dory, we were in there for 35 minutes because she couldn't get a good look at the heart (I was worried it was because my bladder was too empty - we arrived early at the hospital and I was already busting so I went for a wee, then literally the second I'd sat back down and started drinking again, they called me in! It turned out that even with the wee, my bladder was too full and I had to go and empty it half-way through the scan!) and eventually baby cooperated and she saw all 4 chambers of the heart. Everything else was fine, the scan looked far more detailed than I recall from last time, although it is in a different hospital so the scanner may be more up-to-date. Seeing all the ribs and vertebrae, and the bloodflow through the umbilical cord and in and out of the heart and kidneys was just amazing.

And it seems that the world and his lobster were right with their guess, as we're having .... (close your eyes if you want it to remain a surprise!) ....

Yay for a girl, but more importantly yay for a lovely healthy baby.

How exciting!!!
First time round for me, the 20 week scan was all about finding out what flavour the baby would be. I think if we did it again I'd spend a lot more time thinking about the health side of it, but still, so so lovely for you to know!
