As the sonographer started the scan (within seconds) she asked "so are you sure you want to know what it is - because I think we will be able to see straight away". It amazed me that within seconds she knew exactly how baby was lying and she also probably suspected that if she even went to that area we would see for ourselves. As we did. What a blessing. And I know Rachel and Nana are going to be THRILLED too.

I always find it so silly the way people rely on machines. After my 12 week scan my expected date of delivery (EDD) "changed" from 2nd October to 30 September saying that the Gestational age (GA) was 12 weeks 3 days (2 days more). Well after today's scan my EDD is now 29 September and the GA is 19 weeks and 4days (now 3 days more).
I find this all so silly because I know when I conceived. So the date has not changed. Baby may be bigger than what they call "normal" and may in fact come a little earlier if he runs out of space. But his age has not changed. And what if he wants to stay in an extra week?
