I tried to put it all out of my head and tell myself that it would be different and on the screen would be our baby. Our beautiful baby that we have waited for so long. The technician gelled me up and started the scan. Sure enough there was our baby. Mine and Robs baby. Our tiny, cute and extremely stubborn baby who proceeded to face its back to us the entire time! I literally could not stop laughing! This changed it all. This wasn't just like everyone else's scan. This was OUR scan. OUR stubborn cheeky baby who took 25 minutes of pushing, prodding, shaking and walking to get to turn around. It took that moment for me to finally click that I was having a baby.
There's our baby! Our cheeky little devil who thank the lord played up because it showed me that it was a part of us and "not like everyone else" I didn't know whether to laugh or cry!
Everything went perfectly with our scan. The nurse was extremely happy with our baby and all the signs pointed to a nice strong baby. This was a huge relief for us...well me...Rob never doubted it. It was so cool to be able to watch the baby move yet I could not feel a thing. Even though baby is tiny we could still see arms and legs and spine and all the important parts of its body. It was seriously cute.
After our scan we went to the hospital cafe for a drink and to flip through the 100's of photos we got to keep. We were sitting there looking through when this one caught my eye. I literally screamed everyone in the room stared. But seriously can anyone else not see what I saw???
There is our gorgeous baby just sitting in Mummy's tummy. 1 knee up and the other crossed. 1 elbow leaning on the knee that is up and the other arm with its hand in its crutch! Seriously!!!! Rob and I nearly died! If this is not the most amazing 12 week scan photo I don't know what is. I cried and cried in the middle of the cafe. That was our baby. Just chilling. This made it all worth it.
This single moment of seeing this photo changed everything.
Now I know I said that all 12 week scan photos look the same but omg look at that gorgeous face. I might be bias but holy moly that kid is cute.
Peace, Love and Hope
