Well today we had our twelve week baby scan. It was a truly lovely experience. I cried as we watched our little babe on the screen, heart beating so fast. He looks like a REAL baby!! I know that sounds daft, but it’s incredible to think there is a creature inside of me which is ACTUALLY human!
It’s too early to tell if it’s a boy or a girl, but everyone around me thinks it’s a girl. My mother swears it, Mark is convinced and all the people on the pregnancy forums I frequent all reckon girl.
I love the idea of a little mini Me running around… but at the same time, I have a niggling feeling it could be a boy.
Mark’s one of 5 brothers with only one sister. His brother has two sons and a daughter. My mother had three sons and two daughters… My brother has two sons and a daughter…
At the end of the day, I’ll be happy whatever the outcome. But for now, I am amazed and enthralled at the lovely bundle in my slowly bursting belly.
