Awaiting our new arrival!
Expected Delivery Date: 24th August 2005.
On February 16th 2005 we were delighted to reveal that we were expecting our first child. We discovered that Hayley was pregnant just before Christmas but decided to keep it to ourselves until she got through the first trimester.
Two ultrasound scans are normally taken: the first at around 12-14 weeks and the second at around 20 weeks.
We also had two other scans. The first was at 36 weeks because the midwife thought the baby might be lying in a breach position. Fortunately she was mistaken. The second was at "40 weeks +12 days" to make sure there was still enough amniotic fluid around the baby. (We didn't get a picture of that one.)
First scan (13 weeks)
These are two pictures from Hayley's first scan taken at exactly 13 weeks. Click on an image below to view a larger version with some more information about the scan.
Second scan (20 weeks)
This is the only picture from the second scan at 20 weeks and 5 days. Click the image to view a larger version with some more information about the scan.
Third scan (36 weeks)
Contrary to our expectation after the last midwife's visit, the baby was lying head down in the "cephalic presentation". Ready to go! Click the image to view a larger version with some more information about the scan.
