21 weeks – Who runs the world?


We returned to the hospital yesterday for a rescan after the BG’s were uncooperative at our first attempt at an anomaly scan.

All is still progressing just how it should be. Which is a weight off for another few weeks.

We decided to find out the sex of the babies and as the title of this blogs suggests, we have 2 little ladies on their way to the world. For some reason I’d always struggled to see myself with girls. But now I’m daydreaming about raising little wild colourful feminists 🌈

Have managed to keep my mind mostly occupied since our last scan, we’ve been busy with birthdays, trips, weddings and anniversaries, but as usual, in the build up to our visit yesterday I began feeling anxious. This is alien for me. I rarely worry about anything ordinarily. I don’t know if this is a product of our loss or it taking us 4 years to get to this point or whether all pregnant women feel like this – Whatever the reason, I wish I could shake it!

We started our baby shopping in the last few weeks, just booties, baby grows and wipes, but it’s a start, after being too afraid to purchase previously.

We’ve also started to renovate the upstairs of our house. Moved into what was our spare room over the weekend. We still have a bathroom to rip out and replace and a nursery to organise… told you I wasn’t a worrier! Haha. We’re going to be busy over the next few months 😆

Below is 21weeks progress -, also, they’ve gotten quite kicky over the last week or so! I first noticed it not long after we’d landed in Germany for my best friends wedding. The baby highest up in my stomach even managed to kick my husband in the face one night when we were chilling out in our hotel, his head resting on my belly.

This is one way they reassure me they’re doing ok in there without the help of a sonographer.

My next hurdle is my 24week midwife appointment and 25week progress scan. I hope to spend them with as little to report as possible!
