Scan pics 27 weeks

All very exciting today, we've been up to deepest, darkest North London for a 4D scan. No medical reason for this one, there was a discount offer and the opportunity to see Smidget again, coupled with some fancy technology was fairly easily sold to us!

Smidget was of course not cooperating, and despite giving me a good kicking in the waiting room, was fast asleep, wedged so as to hide it's face when we went in. As an arm and a placenta was not what we were aiming for (placentas - not very cute) we were sent off to take a little walk in the park and eat something sugary. So, after a medicinal ice cream in the sun (oh the trials I have to go through) we returned, and this time Smidget wriggled around enough for us to get some good pictures and some video. I'll put some of the pictures below, Fred is working on the video, so we'll put it up here at some point hopefully.
BTW the blobby thing on the right of the picture is the placenta and the one on the left is the wall of the uterus.

All being well the next time we see Smidget we'll be able to have a cuddle!


  1. oh how cool are these pics
    He/She looks very content in there :) I hope that bodes well for life in the big open world x

  2. OMG! I never knew you could do that sort of thing! That is just so cool! That is amazing, and what a cute little baby!

  3. Yay! We had a 3D scan with Alex, but not with the other two. I'm really glad we were able to with the last one. For what it's worth, Alex came out looking very much like the scan, so it's a good indication of how they will look!
