Breathe a big sigh of relief

Yesterday I finally had me early scan. It should have been at 6 weeks, but ended up at eight, but the most important part is that everything is absolutely fine. I am so so very blessed. To have a double uterus can mean so many problems, but we have been really blessed, firstly with my son, and secondly with one tiny little baby, growing exactly as he or she should be doing.

I will try and get a scan picture up in the next few days, but the difference between a 6 week scan and an 8 week scan is incredible! Even at just 8 and a half weeks you can see such a clear little person, heart, head, body and the beginning of little legs.

I am so grateful to my midwife who sorted my scan out for me, she is fab. The doctor had been faffing and doing nothing for 3 weeks, the midwife, got on the phone while I was there and managed to get me sorted for the next day if I had wanted, although we waited until monday as we went away for the weekend. Hurrah for lovely midwives. Not such a hurrah for the student midwife who attempted to take my blood and left me with a dead arm for the next couple of days, but I know they all have to learn.
