Pink

We were delaying our 20 week scan until my parents got back from France, so that they could come and have a look. However, on Wednesday when I rang to make the appointment, I was told in no uncertain terms that 23 weeks was way too late for the 20 week scan. This lead to a very surprise trip to the scan place (okay, nappy brain well established, the radiographers? Scanners? Ultrasounders?), on Thursday morning, and lo! A girl baby!

I'm very chuffed. I thought I was carrying a girl, and my instincts are true, so at one with nature am I (also experiencing every old wives tale symptom possible). I had readied myself for it being a boy, and so now I'm thinking I need to have another baby as well, so that my "mother of 3 boys" dream comes true. First things first though, I'll concentrate on getting this wee sheila out of me nice and healthy.

Congrats! Were you able to get a DVD of the scan? Then your folks won't have missed out completely (well at least until the birth-day, lol)

We got some pictures, but really it was more so they could be there when we found out, not the visual spectacle of a scan (they've endured a few videos already!)

Yaay, yaay, yaay! Baby girls are excellent fun!

Until they start borowing your jewellery, shoes and hair accessories, around eleven years later....
