It was finally time for our 20 week scan. Despite this being my 3rd child, I wasn’t sure what to expect on the 20 week scan.
I was so excited to see our baby again but obviously a little anxious.
We were also taking our girls with us to our 20 week scan. Taking siblings to this special milestone is such a good idea. It is a great way for them to be a little more involved. They were so excited although, admittedly, they did think they were going to see a new born baby come out of Mummy’s tummy. Their presence also made me a little more nervous in case there were any problems.
It was a bit of a stressful morning. We were all really tired, little things kept going wrong.
There was a delay when we got to the hospital. I guess I was just worried though. I needn’t have been, everything was just fine. The heartbeat and the measurements were all fine. I was a little conscious that I hadn’t felt much movement from the baby other than the odd flutter. I know it is still only early days but with both my girls I felt a lot of movement so early. The midwife informed me that there was nothing to worry about though.
The baby was such a live wire. We were there for ages whilst the midwife tried to get some pictures for us but the baby would just not stay still!! It’s funny because whenever I am in the hospital for a check up with my midwife or a scan I just can’t believe I am doing it all again. I sometimes think it’s a little crazy but I am excited – so very excited. We all are.
Have you taken siblings to your 20 week scan?
