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 £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!
