I had my first scan today, little baby has been dancing around a lot lately so I’ve been saying he’s Billy Elliot or Darcey Bussell, he’s a Billy Elliot! It’s a boy! I expected to have a girl because I’m like my mom but it’s a boy. I still want a girl and everyone knows how much I want a girl but I really love my little boy and he’ll be a cool big brother! He’s gonna have fun with his big cousins too, I think Jake will find him funny. He loves watching videos of toddler Tom and says he wants to keep Tom now but have toddler Tom too so I think he’ll like having a little toddler around!
He’ll be a little geek he’ll like superheroes and magic tricks!
It’s nice knowing what it is so I can start buying stuff, I already bought some girl things because I was convinced I’m just like my mom but they can just wait until there’s a little sister. Now I can start buying little blue things! I’ve already got a t-shirt with a lamb on from New York and some unisex NY stuff!
Everything is developing normally and is the right size and blood flowing nicely. And perfect little heartbeat, you can see it moving on the screen. The doctor said he has no concerns about me, my next hospital appointment will be 28 weeks. I was right with my dates, I’m 19 weeks 2 days.
When I went in for the scan she said my bladder wasn’t full so baby wasn’t in a good position to get pictures, I was desperate for the toilet! I don’t think it could’ve been any more full. Then he moved around and it was ok, I didn’t have to get a drink! We got two good pictures. The one where you can’t see the spine is him lying on his side facing the front. The round bit in the middle is his little belly and his knees are bent up and you can see the little eyes and pointy little chin.
The second one, he rolled over and she said do you want this as a picture and his little head nodded like, yeh mommy I look good from this side! So the one with the spine is what he picked to be printed. He’s facing downwards so his spine is along the top then you can see the little nose pointing down.
So that’s my little baby! Due on 28th June 2014.
I’ll keep writing blogs with pictures of my belly growing and any thoughts and feelings I have. My sisters will hate me… I’ve lost weight! I was 70kg for my firstappointment, now I’m 69.3kg. Not a massive difference but still! Sorry girls!
