Today our baby is the size of a banana apparently! Wow that's quite big really.
We had the 20 week scan the day before yesterday and saw our dear little Bear again - oh he/she was just so sweet and I fell head over heels in love with them again! Bear was chomping on his or her hands and waving, kicking and knee-ing itself in the face (clever!). Before we went in I said to my husband that this is the only time in my life that I hope my baby is 'average' and low and behold you couldn't get more average than our baby - literally spot on the 50th percentile for everything. All the body systems look good with no obvious problems. Praise God!
The consultant sonographer who did the scan said just what a sweet looking baby we had and that if she could take one home, she'd take ours. What a lovely thing to say. I know we are biased but on the screen the baby really did look ever so sweet!
I can see the baby's kicks through my bump now which is so nice. The baby tends to kick a lot at about 8am, late afternoon, mid-way through the evening and then when I'm lying in bed about to go to sleep. I woke up in the middle of the night the other night and it was kicking at 4am.....Can I start a sleep routine already?!
