I am so happy, I want to shout it from the rooftops. I had my 20 week scan yesterday, the baby appears healthy, I feel fine and DH is over the moon. I feel so lucky and already a bit besotted with my little son, who keeps kicking .
I predict a severe case of PFBititis when he arrives. I wonder if it is the hormones that make me feel so elated already? [does yet another happy dance around the bedroom]
whomovedmychocolate, I really couldn't post them of Facebook. I don't know why, but the thought of even sharing my pregnancy news on there fills me with dread. I realise that is weird, especially as I keep staring at the scan pictures and have already objectively decided that my little son looks gorgeous, if a little grainy .
Smiler, our first scan did! I had it quite late (13+4) and the sonographer 'could see something between the baby's legs', but was very non-commital, for obvious reasons.
Best of luck with your little one, seeing the baby on the screen and hearing the heartbeat really is quite something . Plus, you are almost over the yucky bit of pregnancy, which I did not enjoy one bit, but managed to already forget about .
StayFrosty, I have a few favourites. I am not considering anything outlandish, but wouldn't want it to be too popular either. DH has to agree as well and I suspect he thinks it is too soon to discuss it seriously. He works with sick babies, so unfortunately gets to see the ones with problems and I think he won't be certain that our son is fine until we bring him home. Morbid, I know, but also quite understandable. Besides, I am an undeterred optimist and I just don't tend to worry too much.
Spent a lot of time on flickr today looking at pictures of baby boys and feeling very soppy .
I have to say I also found out I'm having a boy this week and while I am excited, I had a real feeling it would be a little girl and already liked a girls name, so I kind of feel guilty because I feel like I've lost a daughter in a way which is so ridiculous!
Melwood- that's how I felt at first, I was convinced I was having a girl and had mentally decorated her room, and planned her wardrobe so was a BIG shock to find out I'm having a boy! I'm now 25 weeks, and am over the moon about having a boy, it was just the shock at first. My husband desperately wanted a boy so his enthusiasm is very contagious, have now started buying stuff 4 him and chosen a name, so I can now talk to my baby, which really helped me to form a bond with him xxx
