Pregnancy: 20 Weeks

Another very busy week this week. Logan started school for the first time on Wednesday! He was raring to go and so happy, I got a bit emotional but what mother doesn't. I'll write about it in another post. Logan also started swimming lessons at our local pool yesterday. I was having a panic in case he didn't listen to the instructor (as he hasn't before) but to my utter surprise and joy he listened to every word and followed every instruction and loved every minute. I was very proud. It's a shame lessons only last 30 minutes though as Logan didn't want to come out at the end. We got there eventually though.

My 20 week anomaly scan finally came round and yesterday the other half and I drove to the maternity unit with reserved excitement. We couldn't wait to have a look at the baby again but I was worried just in case anything was wrong. I'm glad to say though that after twenty tense minutes of scanning the sonographer declared all was excellent and baby had behaved very well for the scan. I breathed a sigh of relief. It was so nice to see baby again and the scan was really detailed. We could see the heart, liver, kidneys, spine, ears, feet and hands in more detail. Really fascinating and left me a bit in awe of how the human body can grow something so complicated.

After the scan I had a chat with one of the midwifes and also to collect my notes. It seems they need to keep an eye on my iron count as it's normal but a little low. This happened when I was pregnant with Logan and ended up on iron tablets, not a bad thing but hoping I can avoid it this time if possible. I'll also be seeing my community midwife in a few weeks which is nice. She's a lovely lady and will be good to have a chat with her again.

Last week I said the OH couldn't feel the baby moving yet, well would you believe the very day after I posted my 19 weeks update he felt the baby move. It was brilliant finally sharing the baby moving with him. Logan still hasn't felt the baby move but I'll wait till the movements become stronger so there's no confusion for him. I'm still hungry and still feeling tired but can't complain really. All is going well so quite happy. Now I'm looking forward to a quiet weekend and sharing baby scan photos with the family.

I'm glad the first day went well! Try adding more spinach and red meat to your diet to up your iron--always nicer to try through diet than those awful iron pills!

Ah so glad your scan went well :) Such a relief isn't it? Nobody in my family has felt this baby move yet- not for want of trying! Little monkey always stops kicking when anyone else puts their hand on my bump :D

Such great news about your scan. And also good that they have spotted your iron count and you have time to try and do something about it before tablets are needed. Your bump looks as beautiful as ever too. Thank you for linking up to #BlogBumpClub again. x
