My dad came with me to this one and the lady who did the scan was lovely. She showed us loads of the baby and gave us a much longer scan that I think I would normally have had (I did make a point of it being the only scan my dad had ever seen and that he had come ever such a long way to see it).
She even showed us Squiggles FACE! I had no idea you could see the baby's face so clearly on a standard scan. I thought you HAD to get one of those 4D efforts for that... Or maybe Squiggle was just being very cooperative, I don't know. But we saw baby's face. Squiggle even scrunched up it's little face for a moment! And looks SO MUCH like Jack it's amazing!
We also saw if what gender Squiggle is... but I'm not saying! Mark really doesn't want to know so I am keeping it zipped.
The whole reason for the scan though was the measurements. And here they are: FL (leg) 54.2mm, HC (head) 286.2mm, AC (tummy) 258.6mm, and an estimated weight of 1459.0g (or slightly over 3lb). Which in laymen terms means NORMAL! Not a monster, not a c-section waiting to happen, NORMAL!
Oh, and the placenta? The one the GD MIdwife said was up at the front? Round the back where it should be.
