Well, until now!
At 13 weeks and 4 days, D and I went to the Women's Centre for my dating scan. I was incredibly nervous, excited, apprehensive, and desperate to see what was in there. I wasn't, and couldn't be disappointed. I was also keen to know how many babies there were as my Grandma was a twin, so you just never know....
I guzzled two pints of water before heading over to the hospital, and hoped I wouldn't need to disappear to the loo before we were called in. The waiting room was full of lots of other expectant mums and their partners. There was a real quiet in there, hardly anyone talking. I doubt I was the only mum there who just wanted to see that everything was OK.
The ultrasound technician was lovely, kind, reassuring; and D and I both had big smiles as we saw our baby for the first time. To D's huge relief there is only one baby, and although I would have been absolutely thrilled to have twins, practically and financially I know we would have really struggled with that.
The due date has been confirmed as we originally thought for 20 March 2014. Although it seems a long time away, I know we have so much to do before then that the time will just disappear. It's all so exciting!
