The 12 week scan

There are moments in pregnancy you’ll remember forever; moments that you can recall in an instant – if you’ve read some of the rest of the blog you’ll know Waitrose and Finchley Road Station are two such personal moments.

But there is another moment. A dividing line between the ‘maybe’ and the ‘definite’. As you lie there in a darkened room holding your better half’s hand, there appears on the screen in front of you: a little movement; a small, coiled, human-like shape; the distinct outline of a head, a nose, perhaps a hand. There he is. 7cms of tiny human. Tucked safely, warmly away in your belly.

And right there, right then. It all changes. And you have the first picture of your baby.
