Yesterday started like every other day – with me rushing to the bath room to hang my head over the basin!
Usually before an ultrasound I am slightly nervous about whether or not everything will be ok. This was not the case yesterday. I still had two boys, 2 and under, to look after and all I could think about was how I was going to get that litre of water down without puking it up again.
It was nice for a change, to not have the fear that something may be ‘wrong’ with me or the baby.
And there was nothing wrong.
Just a healthy little jelly baby, with a heart beating strong.
I felt so supported with the whole family there with me. How lovely to have us all together meeting the new member of our family at the same time!
We enjoyed some time afterwards at a duck pond we found not too far from the ultrasound clinic.
Duck ponds are always nicer when you’ve just seen the proof that, indeed, you are having a baby :).
