I thought I’d just write a quick check in post as we had our 20 week scan today.
Unfortunately, yet again, we were at the hospital for hours. But the good news is, everything looks fine with the baby which is the not important thing!
We first went in for the scan to reveal a very curled up baby! The sonographer asked me to go for a walk and have a sugary drink as my bladder wasn’t very full and she thought the sugar might get the baby moving. So off we went on a route march to the canteen to fetch some sugary drink which I downed on the route march back!
Back to the scan room and sure enough, the baby had moved…and curled up in a different direction! So I had to lie on my side, empty my bladder (yep the one I’d just filled) and even jump up and down! Baby did move…but stayed curled up!
The sonographer commented that the baby is very stubborn! Wonder where they got that from…
Anyway fortunately the sonographer was able to see everything she needed to see in the end and it all looked good.
The wait was to see the consultant regarding the pregnancy and its impact on my kidneys. At the moment everything looks fine but I’ll be having more scans at 28, 32 and 36 weeks.
We asked to find out the gender too, but that’s for another post…!
