23 weeks…

17 Aug

Today is the day of my 23 week appointment… I’m nervous, but I know it will be fine. I just get nervous when I have to go to hospitals…

Baby is approximately 28cm and this week begins the rapid growth of baby’s brain and brain cells which will ultimately control her breathing and all other vital functions.

The pigment that colours your baby’s skin is being deposited this week. Your little one has a bit of a wrinkled appearance right now, as skin is developing faster than fat. You may be feeling more active movement lately, as your baby’s busy moving her fingers, toes, arms and legs on a regular basis.

This is the week to do your foetal anomaly scan: this is where a trained ultrasonologist checks your baby very carefully looking for any possible structural abnormalities. It is usually easy to determine the baby’s sex at this stage.

Will update after I have been 🙂 Prayers appreciated…

UPDATE
All is well, baby is definitely a boy! Blood tests are all clear,we’re immune to German measles, and he is clear of Down’s Syndrome and his spine is all covered. He’s growing well, and wouldn’t lie still for doctor to measure his leg, that was entertaining 🙂 Doc says I’m healthy as a horse, and my sugar is normal (praise the Lord)!
