Podling number 3 makes his/her debut on the blog (head on the left)
It's official, there's only one baby in there!
I had my dating scan today, so Mark and I got to see the baby for the first time. Being a dating scan, it was all over quickly, but it was enough to see that there was a beating heart and the required number of arms and legs! We even got to see the little feet kicking. I didn't get scanned until 20 weeks with Tom and Lily, so I really enjoyed being able to see this little one so early (I'm 15 weeks today). I can feel the baby moving around, but somehow it seems to make it so much more real when you actually see that baby on the screen.
We showed the Podlings the picture when we got home and told them it was a picture of the baby in Mummy's tummy. Tom gave it a brief glance and promptly lost interest, probably wondering why everyone was calling that grey blob a baby! Lily, on the other hand, was completely obsessed with the photo and was asking to see the "Baby Tummy Picsher" almost constantly until lunchtime. Lily is much more interested in the baby than Tom. When we told them that Mummy has a baby in her tummy, Tom laughed and gave us a look as if to say "Go on, pull the other one!" Lily is really taken with the idea and, after seeing the scan picture today, told me "I wish I had a baby in my tummy."
The scan put my official due date back a day to the 10th of July, which won't make a blind bit of difference to the actual birth day! My babies don't pay any attention to their due dates, so I just use it as a rough guide. My next and final scan (the foetal anomaly scan) will be in about six weeks and will give us a better indication as to the health of the baby. For now, everything looks great.
