Completing our family

Pregnancy: 20+4

So I had my scan yesterday. Everything looked fine that the sonographer could see but baby was lying in an awkward position and she couldn’t see the heart clearly. No amount of walking or jumping could shift baby so I’ve got to go back for another scan next week.

I’m not worried at all. Have spoken to about 6 other people in real life or online that had the same (and strangely all their babies were boys – a theory?) and all was ok, they just had lazy babies. I’m just looking forward to seeing baby again.

I also had a consultant appointment today as my notes had PCOS ticked. They didn’t really do anything other than test my urine and take my blood pressure but I do now have to be tested for gestational diabetes at 28 weeks. It seems silly really as I’m not overweight, my bmi is in the normal range and it was never confirmed that I do actually have PCOS but its standard procedure apparently so I’ll just go with it.

Pregnancy: 20+1

Oops, it’s somehow been 5 weeks since I last updated you. I’ve now passed the halfway mark and I’m feeling great.

I started feeling movement at just past 17 weeks and you’ve been able to feel kicks on the outside for about a week now. I’m still amazed as, at this point with Miss C, I still hadn’t felt anything at all and wouldn’t for another week or so. What a difference having the placenta at the back makes!

It’s my anomaly scan on Monday. We’re taking Miss C so that she can meet her baby brother or sister, she’s very excited about that!

Will update next week!
