When it came to buying things for the baby we started quite late. This was my choice more than anything because I’m a natural born pessimist and I anticipated the worst to happen from the very beginning. At 5 weeks I had some bleeding and as I was also working that day I remember doing the long slow walk from my department to A&E and checking in thinking I’d lost my beautiful baby.
Who doesn’t love a freebie, I know I certainly do and these are pretty cool I guess, amongst all the wasted paper in the form of leaflets you do get a few little bits for you and baby to try and even some money off coupons if you then wanted to go on and buy the full size products.
I recently wrote quite a lengthy post about things that helped me through the first trimester but also wanted to do one for the second trimester.
Well it’s taken me long enough to type this little post but I wanted to document the moment even so as it was probably one of the highlights of my pregnancy so far and as far as pregnancy milestones go, the 20 week scan, also known as the anomaly scan, is pretty much one of the biggest events.
If you are as impatient as I was when waiting for this little wriggle bug to kick then you probably want to know when you will begin to feel those flutters for the first time.
