Day 337

The day has come to have our thirteen week scan. I can hardly contain my excitement. I really want to see our little one on the screen. I want to make sure they are thriving and growing. As I sat down to be scanned, little one didn’t want to be seen. They turned their back to us and laid on their side. I had to wriggle a bit to get baby to turn over the right way. Every time bub would turn over, they would wriggle straight back to their comfy position on their side. It was cool to see baby’s long legs kicking and the hand that kept waving at us. We have a little wriggler that is for sure. Baby stayed still for about 2 seconds in the right position, allowing our sonographer to take a few good pics. Heart is beating strong and baby is looking good. It gives us both some more reassurance and I look at Greg and squeeze his hand. This pregnancy is going to be a long journey. I know I need to trust that all is well. My placenta is at the front which means it might be a while before I feel baby kick. This will require me to surrender even more.

I love you Hamish. I know you are watching over us three.
