Yesterday we had our 20 week anomaly scan. I’m sure you all know by now that we wanted to find out the gender, and luckily baby had their legs uncrossed and let us see! Baby G is a…. BOY! Mummy’s instinct was right! (As was the old wives tales gender predictor, the astrological balance predictor, gender swaying BD timing, and the Baby Centre gender predictor) We are absolutely over the moon, I can’t stop smiling! Now, since I can remember, I always imagined myself having a baby girl, until I was actually pregnant, from about 6 or 7 weeks I knew he was a boy, just had that feeling…
Of course this scan was a detailed scan to check baby over too, and I’m delighted to say that he is growing well! Was amazing seeing him on the screen again, and when the sonographer told us he was a boy, I must admit I had a tear in my eye! Though at first baby had his hands over his eyes, he obviously didn’t want us to see him!
We have a name chosen for him, though we’re not telling anyone apart from family and Godparents until he’s born (though people keep asking)! Part of the reason being that it may change yet, but at this rate probably not as we can’t find any others that we like at the minute! Also, only a first name thus far, as we can’t find any we like that ‘go’ with his first name we have chosen, and our last name…
I’ve been feeling him move for a while now, since about 15 weeks, but today I’ve seen him from the outside – seen my belly move and felt him! Absolutely amazing! Now I can’t wait for his Daddy to see and feel (neither can Daddy, he’s getting impatient!), though he’ll probably be asleep when Daddy gets home from work!

Here he is!
