20 week scan

1 year and 7 months ago, Hameed and I went to our first ever 20 week scan. I still remember how excited we were that day. We were joking and laughing on our way to the hospital and still discussion whether we should find out if we were expecting a girl or a boy. At that point the 20 week scan just meant being able to find out the sex for us.

Then our world came tumbling down. We found out we were expecting a boy, but he had lots of problem. That 20 week scan more then 1 year ago was the first scan in a long row of scans and tests and there seems to be something new to worry about every time.

Today we went for a 20 week scan again. Today we were very well aware of that the important part of the scan was to see if this baby have any of the problems her big brother had.

Today, 1 year and 7 months later, we got that joyful scan we were expecting the first time. Everything looks prefect and healthy and it is a girl.
