You guysss… I have been waiting for this past week for months! On Wednesday it was finally time for our 3D scan! We were finally going to see our baby and find out who she looks like! It was also the first time that Aleix could come with me which made it even more special. Unfortunately, because of covid, they don’t allow children so Lucas couldn’t come, but it was special nevertheless. My best friend came over and stayed with Lucas. We were a bit worried because he doesn’t really know anyone apart from mum and dad (thanks covid), but they were playing and he never realized we were gone.
On our way to the appointment I started filming a vlog to have the whole experience on video to share with you and our families. However, all that excitement didn’t last very long… As soon as we got to the appointment the sonographer showed us that our daughter was using my placenta as a pillow. There was no was we could get even a little peep of her little face. Not a single picture. I tried walking around, jumping, but sadly nothing worked. Our girl was comfortable and had no intention of moving. I was a little disappointed because of all the build up, but then again, we got to see her and she’s healthy which is the most important thing. We still have no clue who she looks like, she will be our surprise.
If you’re wondering whether to go for one yourself, do it. We were really unlucky this time around, but this is what happened in my first pregnancy.
Another thing that didn’t go to plan was our post Valentine’s weekend away. We were supposed to go away this weekend, but we are still in lockdown (again, thanks covid). We had to postpone it until the 23rd April as it’s their next available weekend. I will be 9 months pregnant so it will be some sort of a risk, but we’re willing to take it. We neeeeed this. Let’s hope that baby girl doesn’t decide to make an early appearance!
As you can see life doesn’t always go to plan, but in the grand scheme of things, all these small setbacks are irrelevant.
Hope you are all having a great week!
