Well hello again :o) been
Well hello again :o) been to my big 22 week Ultrasonic Scan and it was truly amazing!
We could see everything so very clearly...legs kicking, heart beating, jaw moving, the umbilical cord, even the blood pumping round the little one's body! This scan is done to check that everything under the sun is ok....making sure that the spine is complete, baby has all it's wee bits 'n' pieces, has plenty of fluid to swim about in, that the placenta is normal etc etc.
Everything is great but little Jnr has decided to turn itself upside down...way way down low...its little feet are just below my belly button now! So the Radiographer couldn't see everything she wanted to (like eyes and fingers etc) and wants me to go back in 2 weeks time. The poor wee thing was comfortable down there and this woman comes along and starts prodding about...baby was having none of it lol. She wanted to find out the sex too but couldn't as baby wouldn't open its legs! The scanner thing on my tummy was actually starting to hurt me as she was pushing down for so long so I was glad when it was all over....but mostly glad because baby is well and comfortable and kicking away :o)
Everybody is telling me that it is going to be a boy...because it is being stubborn....because it is lying low...because I crave savory things....because I have heart burn.....well I think that's all silly old wives tales and we'll just have to wait and see. I know I have been hoping for a little girl but I really don't mind....I just can't wait to be holding our little one in my arms. Paul is really getting into the whole thing now....he was at the scan with me and was blown away like I was....he has even been searching through my Babies' Names book!
Have a brill Chrimbo everyone and a fun filled New Year...catch you on the flip side! Lots of Luv, Nikki xoxoxox
