Bump is growing
I am just over 20 weeks now and it was lovely to have Maureen come for a visit again today. It was nice just catching up and sharing our exciting news about it being a boy. Then she tried to have a listen to his heart. First she palpates the uterus to try and work out how baby is lying (so that she knows where the best spot will be to try) and he was moving around quite a bit so she just had to give it a try. I remember with Hannah that she would get the sonic aid onto the right spot almost immediately. Not so with this boy. He just kept moving around. Eventually on the 4 or 5th spot she managed to pick up his heart beat but along with the lovely beat were these other noises from his movements. I only felt 1 of the 6 or more movements that we heard. I feel loads of movement through the day and to know that he is moving so much more than what I even feel. Wow. He really is an active little one.
So thankful for the beautiful warm day so we could get some lovely sun and do this experiment outside.
