Last Wednesday we had the routine 19-week ultrasound. As far as could be seen, bub is growing well and looks healthy! The sonographer had a terribly hard time taking the required measurements because bub kept thrashing around... this bub is usually quite inactive... I think it just hates being poked and prodded!!!
We decided against finding out the sex of the baby. My partner had wanted to, but eventually came round. We found out with our first child, so I thought it might be nice to do things differently this time and leave the announcement until the big day. We just had to stare at the walls while the sonographer looked at bub's legs, just in case it was obvious. I am looking forward to the midwife saying "It's a..." Everyone is so far convinced I am having a boy. I'm not sure if that's just because I already have a girl or because they can actually tell. Me... well I have no idea! I knew quite early on first time round, but right now I am confused between the little voice in my head saying its a girl and the general consensus that it's a boy. Only time will tell I guess!
Unfortunately, we only got a few paper photos this time round so I have no pics of bub to share. However, I do have some belly pics to share!!!
Given today marks the half-way point of my pregnancy, I asked DH to take a few photographs of me down by the Swan River. I think he did a great job. Here's a few of my faves;
And one of my daughter (just because she's cute!);
In scrapping news, I haven't scrapped for weeks! I did manage to make 11 cards on the weekend... 10 for a class that I will be teaching at Just Scrapbooking's Retreat in August, and one for Week 3's 7 Deadly Sins Wrath challenge at Wicked Princesses. This week's criteria were;
- black, white and red
- paint/ink effects
Here's my take;
Well, I think that's about it for me for now.
Before I go, I just want to congratulate another of my online friends, Tatum Woodroffe, on the safe arrival of her beautiful daughter, Jasmine Michelle. Jasmine was born on the 20th of April, weighing in at 8 pounds 2 ounces. Do pop by Tatum's blog to congratulate her if you get the chance!
