Had my 4D scan!!!!

Hiya - well what can I say.... it was the single most fantastic experience I have ever ever had.

Was only in there with the jelly on my tum for two minutes before the 2d scan turned into 4d...... and there my baby was. I am not joking when I say that as soon as we saw the image, the baby turned, faced the camera and smiled!!!!

We then were treated to the best 40 minutes ever. We even saw it's feet and legs, which looked liked they were walking.

The baby was chewing, smiling, sleeping, and grabbing at the cord, all while we were watching! It was fantastic.

Sorry if I sound gushy....... it's because I am!!!

The other great thing, is that they were able to confirm that my placenta has moved ( no c- section then! ) which is great and saves me worryng about that, and also, I have been measuring four weeks ahead at every midwife appointment, so they thought it was a big baby - but they confirmed yesterday that the little one is normal and weighs 2lb 12 oz, and I am just so big because I have lots of fluid ( which meant the scan was so much clearer )

So not only did I see my little one, but they also put my mind at rest as well.

Another thing I wasn't really expecting - was how I would feel about the baby afterwards. Now I have seen it I actually feel like it's real!!! I feel a lot closer and more protectve - can't believe it! I AM GONNA BE A MUMMY!!!

Best ??195 I have ever ever spent!!!! If you are undecided, then go!!!!!

    Hi Hollyysmum + bump - think best is between 28 & 32 weeks, but you can have after that - just give your local one a call and see what they say.
