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.
