20 weeks (scan)
For some reason I was much more emotional during the scans this pregnancy, both times feeling teary as soon as I saw the picture on the screen. I'm not sure why exactly. Maybe because I know this will be the last time, maybe because I feel so lucky and so blessed to be pregnant again, making it to each of these milestones without incident and then being told my baby is growing nicely. I feel truly grateful.
Even after my 7th scan, I'm still amazed at what the sonographer can see in the ultrasound, pointing out organs and facial features and distinguishing limbs when I'm still trying to work out which way is up. Our sonographer this time around was very thorough, taking her time with each measurement and spending a long time looking at the heart. It probably wasn't really that long at all but every second felt like an eternity until she told us it all looked fine. And then, such relief. We are so thrilled.
And the gender? It's a girl.
