12 Week Scan Anniversary

A year ago today was our 12 week scan, the first scan, the first time we saw our baby. It was the best picture I had ever seen. Before the scan, I was slightly worried that I wouldn't be able to make anything out...just like in Friends when Rachel can't see make out the baby in the scan. But I had no problems, everything was so clear...
Our little bean, with his hands up in the air.
I'd done a bit of reading up about what to expect during the scan and about having a full bladder.  So I drank nearly 2 litres of water before I drove to the hospital, I could hardly walk i was so desperate to relieve myself. I managed to get to the maternity department and had a short wait. When the sonographer called us, she looked at me and she asked if i was alright and I told her I'd drunk loads of water, she let me  go to the toilet thank god. So I laid down on the bed and tried to get comfy, it wasn't easy with the sonographer jiggling my belly to get a good picture. We were so relieved that everything looked good, baby seemed happy and healthy.

The 12 week scan also meant that I felt comfortable in telling people I was pregnant. I had told a few people, mainly just close friends, family and work. It killed me not putting anything on facebook but I felt that I needed to wait until the 12week scan, we wanted to know that everything was fine. We had such a great response when we announced it on Facebook, with a few people commenting that it was about time. Me and Chris were in a good place, we'd been married 4 years, we had our own home and our jobs. It just seemed like the perfect time to start a family...and what an amazing family we've made. It's been an amazing 12 months and I love seeing Joey grow into an amazing little boy.

Thanks for reading
