Yesterday we had our 20 week scan. It was mind-blowing!! The sonographer showed us each and every part, explaining what everything was that we could see and everything looked so perfect! We saw the baby’s arms, legs, hand waving at us, saw the baby stretch it’s legs out full length and also yawn! We saw the baby’s face too which was amazing! The man tried to get a measurement of the head circumference and the baby was refusing to budge. He said we might have to go and take a walk around and come back but he would try and tilt the bed first to see if it got the baby moving. It didn’t and he went and got his colleague. In the meantime I laid and just shook my tummy and when the lady and the gent came back in, the baby had moved.
I cannot believe that we made a tiny little human who looks so wonderfully perfect! The baby was laid on it’s side with its back towards the scan and with it’s head down and bum up. I laughed afterwards and said to hubby “It’s definitely a biker then being head down and bum up!” (Hubby owns a motorbike and I go pillion) We walked back home, I think a bit in awe and so pleased that all is ok with the baby. The next time we will see him/her will be when they arrive and are our arms! Scary thought it some ways but it’s great to be on a countdown now!
