Congratulations! I loved our 20 week scan (am now 24 + 2), even though our little one wouldn't in curl herself for ages - we had to go and come back later on haha! It's amazing to see how much she had changed from our last scan, watching her kick me and her strong little heartbeat pumping away smile it just makes everything seem a bit more real.

It's really amazing isn't it? The fact they can search around and tell you there's his lips or a kidney. All that has grown from 2 tiny cells!

You've got an amazing photo too op, our wee man decided to be camera shy and hid away in a corner with his back to us! No amount of wiggling or shaking would coax him out! We got an amazing photo of his spine!!

I am in awe of scanning technology.

It wasn't around for my DMum.

It's routine now and it's a life saver.

Well, sometimes. Not all anomalies are compatible with a good outcome, but finding out gives you options. In some cases life-saving options.

It must be one of the medical procedures with the biggest impact in the developed world in the last 50 years.

I had to have a rescan be a due I have an awkward baby. Loved the second one. Sonographer was a male and had 2 people ask for women so I got seen earlier. He explained what he was measuring and seeing my babies little feet crossed over each other made me cry. Photo isn't brilliant though, like I said he's an awkward one

I realised just after I'd posted it up so reported it and asked for image to be removed. Blaming baby brain!!
