I had my dating scan today and I am soooooo relieved to say that all is well with my little bean. Strong heart beat and all limbs and parts formed. Cute bean was in a reclining position first with legs crossed at the ankles then brought it's hands up to his/her face and turned on its side. My husband and I just melted.
With first sight of baby bean's profile, I was stunned at how much it looked like my husband. He couldn't help but notice it too!
Amazing how a grey ultrasound image could convey this, but it did. No dangly bits, but midwife said you can't see gender at this point.
We are so happy to know our bean is strong. It's long legs, toes and fingers suggests that it takes after me and my dad in that department, but definitely has my husband's profile.
I'm glad the midwife was quick and didn't linger in the process. I wasn't too crazy about having the ultrasound but just wanted piece of mind. I can't stop looking at the photos!
Told parents today - a bit stressful because my mom started becoming over-prescriptive....how do you tell your parents in a nice way that you really don't want them present at the birth, you just want to be alone with your husband? How can I keep sane in my bubble of happiness with my husband without everyone else projecting their weird issues at me, but not make them feel left out. Can anyone relate?
