We finally caved in to my maternal anxieties last week and signed up for a private scan so that I could see the baby and reassure myself that Number Two was doing well.
And here is Number Two!
The scan's quite clear as it's quite obviously the image of a baby snoozing. Number Two was snoozing when the scans started and stayed stubbornly that way despite the sonographer's best efforts.
The image below is of Connor at 23 weeks gestation and boy, the two sure look alike! I dunno - do all babies look like this in utero? Or is it just mine? Connor emerged looking EXACTLY like he did in the womb so we think Number Two will look a lot like big brother as the scans look pretty much alike.
Like all mothers, I pray that my little one will be born safe, normal and healthy... that's all we really, really care about. Things like impossible cuteness and Einstein-like IQ are just icing on the cake.
I was so happy and relieved to be able to see our baby for the first time. This is the first time I got to see Number's Two face in 3D and it was such a relief to know all is well.
As a result, I was full of goodwill towards men all weekend. Hehe.
