I say "officially" because every measurement I saw the woman take displayed 10 weeks 5 days (I'd worked us out at 10 weeks 3-4 days) so don't know why she settled on 11 weeks 0 days. but never mind, that doesn't matter so much. What matters is little Smudge is alive and well.
Its a shame that me n Mark both felt that we hadn't had the best sonographer the RLI has to offer. First off she thought this was our 2nd scan (no... that'll be the other couple we were just talking to outside) and then she wasn't chatty like they usually are. I was worried to start with coz Smudge wasn't moving, and I couldn't see a heart beat. And she said NOTHING for ages.... Then finally she went through head, bum, arms, legs and heartbeat (which I STILL couldn't see). Then Smudge moved.... phew! Think baby was trying to sleep and did not like being prodded. She missed out on the best photo ops and we wound up with this shot of the back of Smudges head (on the right there) and has us whisked out in under 5mins :o(
Never mind though, we'll no doubt get a better one at 20 weeks, and if I get checked for GD again then there will be plenty more scans.
I'm just happy to see our baby alive and well :0)
