It’s a….

We had our 20 week scan today, (I’m measuring 20+2) and it was absolutely amazing. The sonographer took his time looking at our baby’s brain, organs and limbs and I’m really pleased to say all is good. Everything seems to be working as it should and is growing as it should be.

We were asked about the sex and if we wanted to know or not. If you know me and have been following me on Facebook or Twitter, you’ll know how undecided I was to find out. Well, the sonographer showed us our baby’s bladder and then moved to the femur bones to take measurements and I spotted something….

The sonographer asked me what if we wanted to know again and I said ‘Yes’ straight away. I’d spotted our baby’s willy and needed reassurance of what I’d saw. I had a feeling we were having a boy anyway so I guess Mothers instinct is correct! So, we’re very excited to be having a son and I feel extremely calm about it all now. I’m glad I know and now I can begin bonding with my son. Hubby is delighted with the news and is already planning on taking him down the Bescot (home of Walsall FC) as soon as he can. Now all we need to decide on is his name but we’ve got plenty of time for that and all will be revealed when he’s born.
