22-week scan

No, it’s not a pic of Tad, but how cute?!

Seeing as how the sonographer couldn’t get a very clear view of everything she needed to at our 20-week scan, we were back in the scanning room again today. Of course, our squiggly little Tadpole did not want to behave and kept moving about just as they were getting a decent picture!

So, we were sent on a walk for quarter of an hour to see if Tad would settle into a better position. No such luck – the second sonographer laughed at how every time she was trying to get a good face shot for us, Tadpole decided to play “peek-a-boo” and covered up that cute little face with both hands! There was also a whole lot more wriggling about and kicking – wow, this kid has long legs!

Eventually, though, we came away with a semi-decent profile of Tadpole’s face (such a cute little button nose!) and all the checks were completed, so we now know everything that is supposed to be there is there and working as it should (which is a relief).

And then this evening, Dale got to feel a kick for the first time, so he’s now got a goofy grin on his face.

On a separate note, I went baby clothes shopping for the first time yesterday and forked out Β£90 on a nice little mountain of the cutest outfits. Of course, it’s just a start, but it was fun and I can hardly wait to see Tadpole in them. It was difficult to find non-gender-specific stuff though – loads of pink, blue, frills and tractors in evidence, which isn’t much use when you don’t know the sex of the baby! I fully expect to buy a bogey-load more when I’m away visiting my Mam this weekend!

    So are we, Michelle. Not that we thought anything was wrong ni the first place, but it’s always nice to be reassured, isn’t it?! Tadpole seemed to be in a bit of a funny mood yesterday and just wouldn’t play fair when we were trying to get a good picture – even the sonographer commented that we have a very active baby and was laughing at Tadpole’s “attitude” which had us laughing. I also think Tadpole had hiccups during the first attempt, which was really funny to see.

    We ALMOST nailed a really good pic of Tad’s face (a shot that actually made all of us say, “Wow!” when we saw it – it was so detailed!), but the sonographer wasn’t quite fast enough taking the photo…

    Hey Kell! Glad everything is ok. I know for us it was always a nervous time (even when you KNEW things were ok) before we could make sure things were fine. Even DH is getting a little antsy with this pregnancy…he asked me yesterday if something was wrong would they have known it by now (since I have had I don’t know how many ultrasounds and now have to go in twice a week for a non-stress test and ultrasound). Even though we know she is fine, there is always some fear in the back of your mind.

    At least you got a half decent picture this time! πŸ™‚ Last time Pebbles decided to cover her face….

    I’m so happy that everything went well, but sorry that Tadpole wouldn’t behave! S/he will probably always be camera shy!

    I have to admit, I HATE having MY photo taken, so Tad obviously takes after me already – LOL!

    You should still post a belly picture! Just take one of your belly, not your whole body or face. πŸ˜‰

    I’m going to. Dale took a pic tonight on his phone. Now we’ve just got to work out how to send it to my computer…
