20 Week Scan & Gender Reveal
I am so excited to finally be able to reveal the gender of our little baby – it’s something I have wanted to know since Day 1! Will Sophie be having a sister or brother…?
20 Week Scan
Our 20 week scan & gender reveal was actually delayed by a week as we were on holiday when it was due! This meant waiting a whole extra week before finding out the gender (I’m not the most patient of people!). So…our 21 week scan went really well. Baby is growing nicely and no concerns were flagged up. This was a major relief as, although knowing the gender is nice, the whole point of these scans is to check that baby is well. The sonographer was fantastic & explained exactly what we could see on the screen in front of us. We had amazing views of baby’s heart, spine, limbs & face.
Sadly, husband had to go straight back to work after the scan, but I managed to sneak in a bit of mooching round the shops to look at some of the baby clothes I could potentially be buying… Sophie was at nursery so I actually had some peace to do this!!
I’m not going to lie. I have always wanted a little girl. So when I found out we were having Sophie I was overjoyed. Therefore, this time, I really didn’t mind either way what gender baby was. I would be really chuffed if Sophie had a little sister, but also I would be over the moon if we had one of each sex. I think the experience of parenting a boy compared to a girl would be different (correct me if I’m wrong!)…
The sonographer kept us in suspense as she tried to get a look between baby’s legs. It did prove quite tricky as baby decided to sleep with their knees up their nose & their feet on top of their head!!
IT’S A BOY!!!
A little brother for Sophie!!
My husband & I are both really excited – as is Sophie who keeps patting my belly – and cannot wait to meet him! We already have a name sorted as we chose a boy’s name when I was pregnant with Sophie!
Here’s to the next 20 weeks (well…19) going by nice & quick so we can welcome our little man to the world!
