My Twenty Week Baby Scan
I had my twenty week ultrasound on Monday .
I'm relieved beyond words to say that everything is just as it should be .
Thanks to the Angelsounds doppler , I bought from Amazon ( £22 ) , I knew baby was happy and had a good strong heart beat , so my nerves were much less waiting for my appointemt , and a good thing too , as we were called half an hour late because of an emergency ., I can just imagine as that happened to me in March 2013 when my second baby had no heart beat at my twelve week scan .
Now this bit - you couldn't make it up ! , as I sat waiting , down the corridor and out thru the doors next to us , came my ex - the father of the baby (Ellis ) , I lost . I haven't seen him since last June and after everything he did to me , it's been a weight off my mind cutting all contact .
He was dressed in a porters blue scrubs , I had heard he was on a work placement thru the local college , but damn , I never expected him to walk past me in the maternity department . I exclaimed "Oh my god , that's Phil " really loud . Simon looked at me , I didn't look back and Phil went thru the doors .
I've been shaking my head in disbelief ever since ! .
When we finally had our appointment , baby was moving around and kicking away .
It was a bit uncomfortable having the scanner pushed into my fat tummy , to obtain clearer results , but once the image appeared on the screen , and I heard the magic words " nice strong heartbeat " , I could relax a little bit as all the measurements were taken .
After the assesment was finished , I asked the babys sex .
" It's not a hundred percent , but I believe it's a girl " .
Hospitals aren't allowed to guarantee the gender incase they make a mistake , but as I will be having additional scans , I will ask at each .
So there you go , baby's now got a name - Faith .
Yesterday With excitement , I bought boxes down from my wardrobe , it felt just like Christmas eve as I made a stack in the livingroom - the steriliser , baby bouncer , play mat and bouncer .
I wanted to do it days ago , but it felt like I could be cursing the result , so I hung on .
I'm sighing again with relief , it's one of the best feelings in the world knowing my babys healthy .
19 weeks to go ..........................
