19 Week Scan

L and I went to see the Waifs and Ani DeFranco play on Thursday night with friends of ours – is was an awesome concert. They played outdoors at the Arts Centre which was so lovely in the summer night air. L and I joked that of course the baby’s first concert was “lesbians with guitars” music. We also have tickets to the Pink concert in May, but somehow I think I will be taking aunty T along, while an 8 month pregnant L stays home! After the concert we headed to the airport to pick up J, who flew home for a week. His plane was due in at 12.50am but we were still waiting at 2am! Needless to say I was a little tired and weary heading off to work the next day.

The next day we headed off for our 19 week scan – L and I and were nervous as usual, while J was quietly excited. It was a little disconcerting that the baby’s movement wasn’t immediately obvious like last time – although the sonographer explained it doesn’t have as much room to bounce around now. Results were all good – baby is big – in the 93rd percentile, and a total WRIGGLER (obviously not my couch potato genes). Everything looks good – and we were very relieved that there was absolutely no hint of gender. We definitely don’t want to know – but I was worried I wouldn’t be able to stop myself from looking at the scan until I saw something. Luckily for us baby was in the wrong position to see and sonographer didn’t try to get him/her to move so that we could see. We have to go back in 3 weeks to check the baby’s heart again – apparently it is harder to see it in detail if you are overweight – but purely as a precaution, sonographer said everything she could see was fine. We are more than happy to go back – 7 weeks between scans was way too long!
