12 Week Pregnancy Scan Photo

I was only 4 weeks pregnant when we found out and in spite of my tightening trousers, stomach churning nausea and hatred for all smells, it was still a long and nervous wait until the scan.

As the sonographer put the gel on my belly, Phil and I gripped hands tightly, desperate for that definitive proof of our baby’s existence and health. Within second a clear image formed on the screen and there was our perfect, wriggling miracle. As I have mentioned in previous posts, I cry a lot when I experience strong emotions, be they good or bad. As we watched our baby kick and stretch though, barely a tear rolled down my cheek. I needed to savour the incredible moment and it was too special to miss by crying.

No images found.
We were given 7 beautiful pictures to take home and our due date was brought forward by just one day. This meant our 12 week milestone had actually been on Christmas Day, which I quite liked as it’d been our first Christmas as a married couple and in our new cottage.

Our first baby was officially there and officially due on July 9th 2014.
