Baby Blog 21 weeks – Anomaly Scan results

2 August 2011 No Comment

The scan was FINE! Phew! Two very happy and active babies. Twin 1 is head down, and twin 2 breech; not that it matters too much at this stage, but it gives me hope for avoiding an ELCS. Twin 1 is the larger of the two, but not by much. We have kept the genders a surprise, just as we did with DS & DD. This irritates some of our family, but we like it that way. My DH would like two boys (of course) and I think if there was a choice, I’d have one of each, but I’ll be happy whatever we have -as long as they’re okay and I am too.

Saw the Consultant again a few days later, he did a quick scan, asked the usual questions and that was about it. Not entirely sure what I’m supposed to ask him really. Having already had 2 children, and with this pregnancy being straight forward thus far, I don’t really have any questions. Unless, of course, he’d like to advise me on the best people carrier to purchase, twin buggies or how to hold on to my sanity when the babies arrive. Somehow, I don’t think that is his forte…

As for DS’s behaviour – he’s been an angel in comparison to the previous week. I have a health professional from the health visiting team coming over in the week to discuss his behaviour anyway. Who knows when he’ll morph back into his monster form. The bigger I get the harder it will be. This week will be a real test as my DH has left this evening for a week’s training with work and won’t return until Friday. At least I have the car, so we can get out of the house if we need to. Roll on Friday, that’s what I say!

I had a ‘realisation moment’ in the Library toilets in the week. So many people have been kind and complimented how ‘I’m all baby’, but it’s not true. My bottom is getting so big! 🙂 I’m trying not to let it affect me too much.  I was my biggest I’d ever been after my DD and manage to successfully lose 2.5 stone last year through excercise and NO CHOCOLATE, and it felt great. I know it will take longer to lose this time, but I’m secretly hoping my body will just spring back – which it never has. I’m just not one of those lucky women.

My real priority though is that I get as far along in pregnancy as I can – stuff the weight gain – it’s the price I’ve agreed to pay for two healthy babies. Note to body: if you do want to spring back into my size 10 wardrobe, it would be really helpful!! A girl can dream….
