On the 27th February (just before we were 32 weeks) we had an amazing 4D scan to get a sneaky peak at baby. It took my breath away to see him in such detail.
At one point I was staring up at the screen thinking to myself that he resembled Ben a great deal and just at that moment, Ben moved in to my eye line from where he had been sitting. I guess I must have looked a bit startled when this happened, as the Sonographer asked if I was OK. What had shocked me was that Ben's face had aligned itself perfectly with the image on the screen on the baby's face and the resemblance was amazing. I mean, he is his father, so of course it makes sense... but I never anticipated that he would be his Daddy's little twin! I didn't even get a shoe in! The Sonographer had a look herself and was a little shocked to see the strength of the resemblance herself. Everyone we have shown the pictures to has immediately made the connection themselves and agree that he is the spitting image on his Daddy. Ben was glowing for days afterwards and still smirks when it is mentioned. I think he may be a little stoked that his son looks so much like him. By a little, I obviously mean a lot. I am so ridiculously happy as well. I always hoped to have a little boy so much like his Daddy. After all, I did pick the most handsome guy there is, so he is a pretty good physical mold for my children :) I guess we will see for sure though, when he is born exactly how similar they will be. I have included some pictures below, so see what you think! Some of the pictures are off the disc we were given and some are ones Ben took on his phone during the scan.
Anyway, he was a very well behaved little man for the duration of his scan and allowed us some pretty awesome shots of him that I will treasure forever. The Sonographer said he looked like he was going to be a big boy (which is what our Ob keeps saying as well) as he already had chub and dimples that were visible in his scan pictures. Ben and I can't wait to see him for real now!
