We had our 20 week scan today – it was so lovely to see our baby again and see that everything was well! I took the “full bladder’ request a bit far, and i was too full, so had to go for a wee (TMI??) so they could do measurements etc. He/she wasn’t quote as co-operative this time around (baby kept their left arm up by their head for most of it!), and so we could get very clear pictures, but the sonographer was great and gave us some freebie pics anyway, so we have those. We have a picture where Baby B looks like the Michelin Man! Haha.
My placenta is a little low, and so i’ve been booked in for another scan at 32 weeks. I’m not worried about it (she didn’t seem to be) and it’s a good thing; we get to see our baby again before it comes out!
We decided not to find out if we were having a boy or girl. I have heard some stories about the sonographer just blurting it out without asking if the parents want to know, so I made sure it was the first thing I said once we walked in. It didn’t stop us having a look to see if we could spot anything. Baby had its legs crossed, which apparently a sign that it’s a girl, and after the scan, Mr B said that he thought it “looked like a girl”… i’m not sure how he came to that conclusion!
