We were so excited when we reached 12 weeks. We went for our second scan and again we were so relieved to find that Lentil was doing well. We could see his little heart beating. We couldn’t believe the difference in how he looked. He suddenly looked like a real little baby. He showed us his arms, one and then the other, he showed us his thumbs. Even the sonographer couldn’t believe how clear the pictures were. She apologised for being quiet and said she was just really enjoying looking at him, he looked exactly like the pictures in the textbooks and he was beautiful.
We still didn’t tell many people at this point. I was constantly scared that something would go wrong so we decided to wait until our 20 week scan to mention it on Facebook although we had to tell people we saw regularly before that as I was getting fat!
