20 Weeks: Its a...


I am currently 20+1 weeks {in my 21st week}, just over half way and the baby is apparently almost the size of a banana!

We had our 20 week scan on Friday and all was well, its a boy, and we could see him drinking and moving around touching his knees!

I'm growing now as well and have a definite bump, as you can see from the photo below. I think I'm going to try and keep a record from now on.

At my last midwife appointment my blood tests had revealed that I'm AB negative which means I'm rhesus negative and will require an anti-D injection at 28 weeks. This is to make sure that if my blood mixes with the baby's, I wont produce any antibodies against it if he is positive, a possibility since we know that Graham is.

Apart from that I have still been feeling fine, I have had to buy some more maternity clothes as I was stuck for options when I didn't want to wear work trousers or baggy jeans!

We have also received some lovely gifts from my sister:

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Pop-up Book & Whoozit Activity Toy


and Lenny Lion

We have started working on our spare room, the first task was to move the bookcase to the living room, the next task is going to be moving the double bed to Grahams parents garage so we can see what space we have and where we are going to put the cot, drawers, small bookcase, chair & possibly keep our computer desk for me to still work on. Now that we know its a boy we are probably going to order the dark blue pram cover and hood to go with the pram we are getting too.

The next few weeks are going to be quite busy with our London trip then I have a weekend away with my friends to celebrate our 30th's altogether. Mine isn't until December but October was midway between all 8 of our birthdays! We also have a week in Matlock planned in the middle of October with my family then we have just booked a long weekend in Cologne at the end of November, the week before my birthday, as our last holiday just the two of us!

    (If you happen to be down in London for longer than a moment would love to say hi - over a cup of tea, perhaps?)

    VHC is my very favourite kids book. It is just perfect. There is a DVD of various Eric Carle stories, including it, which is very helpful when you have a poorly/grumpy/not sleeping baby (once they are about 2 months obv).


  10. Congratulations on the pregnancy and the baby boy news. You must be so excited. I hope pregnancy is treating well.x.
