We had our 20 week scan this morning and now we get to call our little one a ‘he’ instead of an ‘it’. We’re having a son in April. Our little one is a boy!
I’m not sure it was really a big surprise anymore. Last night we did the needle-on-a-piece-of-thread test above my belly. And the needle kept moving back and forth, instead of going in circles, which is supposed to mean you’re having a boy. And then while asleep I dreamed the sonographer told me the baby was a boy. So this morning I was definitely thinking my belly bean would probably be a boy.
After a lengthy examination of baby’s organs and body parts (all is fine) it was time to explore baby’s nether regions. We got a nice clear shot of the legs and I saw a small bump in between them. I was just thinking that it was probably boy-parts, but I’m no expert, for all I know girl-parts look bumpy at this stage. I had barely finished the thought and the sonographer moved on to a different angle and told us she saw dangly bits. She confirmed it, it is a boy. Yasu was surprised but I wasn’t really, I was expecting it. If she had said it was a girl I would have been very surprised. But who knows, the sonographer did say they can never tell 100% for sure. In another 20 weeks we will really know for certain our little one is a boy (or not).
I love the details in these scan photos. I can see his hands, legs, spine, and of course his head. Our little boy is very flexible. He’s currently hanging around in my womb in shrimp position. All curled over with his feet and hands in front of his face. And even more exciting I think I have been feeling his tiny movements over the past few days. Tiny faint bubbles of movement in my belly. Hello dear little baby boy, I can feel you. Keep growing well in there, can’t wait to meet you in 20 weeks.
