20 week scan, the big reveal!


Two blog posts in one day (aren't I spoiling you)

The big day finally arrived!
After much waiting and bitten nails and trips to and from the hospital, we finally got to see our new baby for the second time. We had been saying from the beginning that we didn't want to know the sex of the baby but pretty much as soon as the midwife asked, we agreed to find out.
So I am very happy to reveal that:

I can't begin to explain how happy I am. It's such a nice feeling to know who's in there wiggling away every day. He didn't stay still for the scan and the midwife struggled to take all of his measurements. Looks like he's got his fathers aptitude for kicking/punching. (JS trains MMA)
There were many smiles, lots of tears and lots of phonecalls to relevant grandparents.
Now the fun can begin, I can start shopping for tiny boy clothes and decorations for the nursery as well as drawing up a list of names!
R-dogg suggested "River" as his favourite baby name so far and we really like it too. I think we will stick with the "R" theme we have going for our growing man cubs. It's so nice to be able to call him a "he" instead of an "it." It makes it much more real.

Off to trawl ebay for cute boy stuff!
