Wonderful scan experience :)

Well had my scan yesterday at 14+5 (finally!) and it was great! I was sat in the waiting area when I was approached by a midwife who wanted to poach me for a research project. It's to do with monitoring the growth of babies in the womb ... and just means I get 3D scans each time including an extra one at 27 weeks. I snapped her hand off! The scans are also a bit longer and very thorough... in fact the sonographer was already able to tell me that I'm having a little boy image I don't know what to do with boys! The whole experience was fantastic, it felt more like a private scan than NHS and has really put my mind at ease after all my illness.

Hope everyone else is well image
