The 20 Week Scan

Today was a day filled with excitemement and nerves.  It has been seven weeks since I last saw our little pretzel wriggling on the screen, and the twenty week scan tests for so much more.  We were in the room for about thirty minutes in total, and saw every perfect bit of our little baby, from the hand that gave out a hi5 to the camera (definitely my favourite scan picture), to the four chambers of the heart and teeny tiny stomach.

We were also quite eager to find out the gender (Although I think we had both already guessed)


Our little pretzel was more than obliging and we got to spend the afternoon shopping for our little . . .

(I wasn't sure this would work, but we took blue sparklers to the park and had a play with my camera settings)

We are over the moon to be growing a third baby boy, and thankfully we have so much from the other two, that we don't need a lot.  I did pick up these adorable sleepsuits though, skipping the newborn size as the scan showed this baby is following in his brothers' footsteps and is already looking big!





I have taken over from the lovely Molly at Mothers Always Right as she has just had her beautiful baby girl.  I will be hosting the Blog bump club so please link up your latest pregnancy posts!
