I thought I should do a bit of an update, even though I don't post here as often as I should do...
anyway i'm 17w1d today, and had a scan at 12w5d that went beautifully, and it was the first time I got to see my bub. He/she was moving around a lot, and the heartbeat was nice and strong (164bpm).. such a relief to know all is well
I have my next (and last) scan on the 19th May, and will be 19w1d - I hope to be able to find out the sex at this scan, and lol will be disappointed if bubs has his/her legs crossed. My intuition tells me that it is a boy - before my first scan i was sure it was a girl, but he looked boyish at the scan.. Obviously the most impt thing to me is that bubs is born nice & healthy, but if I had to choose one sex, it would be a boy...
I had a m/w appointment last week and got to hear the heartbeat, which was in the 140's, but he was moving around so much we couldn't get a constant reading, but a heartbeat is a heartbeat, so I didn't mind one bit!!!!!!! My fundal height was measuring 4 weeks ahead of where it should be, but my midwife didn't seem too worried
I've started feeling movement already - first little flutter was at 14w3d, and last night I got my first PROPER kick, but today it's back to tiny little flutters that half the time i'm sure I imagine
I'm finally starting to believe that come October, I will become a 1st time Mummy, and will have my healthy bub, safely in my arms... I am a lot less stressed out now than I was in those early days, where I was sure every day would be the day I started spotting, or cramping, or that something would go wrong...... Struggling to believe i'll be TWENTY WEEKS by the end of the month!
thanks for reading.. i'll try and post up a bit more frequently!
