31 weeks and time is creeping by. I am well aware that before too long my little girl will be in my arms and it is exciting and daunting all at the same time.
Today we went for another scan at Miracle Me, organised purely for us to see how our little one and how she is developing.
Just like last time, it was a magical experience. Jackson was beyond excited to see his little sister on the massive movie screen and was far more engaged in watching the scan this time as opposed to the variety of toys that were available for his entertainment.
Funny story: Before we left for the scan, I had eaten a pickle sandwich (shut up, it was delicious) and apparently baby girl is not a fan. We were able to catch some amazing footage of her having some big gulps and swallows of amniotic fluid, before scrunching her face up in disgust and spitting it back out! I hope this isn’t something that translates to life when she is born! Jack has never been a fussy eater, so I am not sure I would know what to do with a child who was!
The things we were able to see our baby do, in real time was simply astounding. The movements and facial expressions made everything just that bit more real. We organised the scan for this gestation, as it is very close to the same gestation Jackson was when we had his 4D scan. Little Miss looks quite different from her brother (at least according to the scans). She seems finer and more delicate in her facial features, which makes me think she may take more after her Daddy’s side. The name we have picked, all things going to plan (which just means, if I don’t change my mind), seems to be a perfect fit for the gorgeous little face we got to see today.
I am so acutely aware, every single day, how lucky I am to have the amazing family that I do have. My Jack is my world and such an amazing little boy, and I am overjoyed that our beautiful little girl is not far away from joining us. It is moments like this that really make a huge impact for me, and creating this amazing memories is something I will treasure forever.
