Hey Lovelies, Hope you’re all okay!
It’s been a while since I’ve got behind the keyboard and written a post. There’s been a lot that’s happened! If you follow some of my socials you’ll probably know that I am expecting a baby, due July 1st and we’re completely over the moon. With pregnancy, I have had to prioritise things more and focus on making sure baby is happy and healthy growing away. So that’s why I’ve been quiet. That being said, I feel it’s only right to include some updates, news and other baby/pregnancy content with you now.
Pregnancy has completely consumed me. If I’m not talking about it, I’m thinking about it. I want to share my journey with you. What better way to kick things off then to share with you baby’s gender. We were very kindly invited to Window to the womb in Watford for a complimentary early gender and well being scan.
So, Window to the womb are a private clinic that offer expectant mothers a variety of different scans. From as early as 6 weeks, they can offer you peace of mind and reassurance with an early scan. From 16 weeks, they offer early gender scans (if your’re impatient like us) as well as 3D and HD scans. You’re also able to get photo’s, videos and heartbeat recording teddies, cute right? We were so happy to be invited along for an early gender scan, just before I turned 17 weeks.
On first impressions, the clinic and staff were lovely. There was a clean, but not clinical feel to it. Before we were called in for the scan, we waited in a sofa seating area and asked to fill out a form with a little bit about us. Literally only took a few minuets then we were taken through to the scan room. The room was quite big which surprised me (hospital ones seem quite small and pokey). There was a big screen on the wall for us to see baby which was great. The sonographer I had seemed really lovely. He talked us through what he was looking at and made the whole experience pleasant and as comfortable for me as possible.
The scan itself didn’t last as long as I thought it would, probably around 10 minuets in total. We got a sneak peek in 3D which was such a crazy experience as well as a listen to his heart beat. It was so overwhelming to see him wriggling away in there and knowing he was doing okay. Towards the end of the scan, the Sonographer confirmed baby’s gender.
WE’RE HAVING A LITTLE BOY !
Throughout my pregnancy, I just felt like I was having a boy. We kept referring to baby as “him” or saying “he’s”. Secretly, we were both hoping for a little boy. Wouldn’t have mattered either way but I was convinced baby was a boy and I was right. When we found out, I had a little tear which I wasn’t expecting, but I was just so happy to see him and to know a tiny bit more about who he was becoming in there.
We got to share the experience with our mums which was great. During your NHS scans, you can only take one person with you so it was nice to share that with them. Something I will always remember. The whole scan was recorded and we opted to purchase that before hand so I could have that memory and share it with family too.
Overall, I was really impressed with Window to the womb and the service they provided us. It’s an amazing feeling to see your baby again, share it with others and feel comfortable at the same time. If you’re expecting a little one, I’d recommend looking into Window to the womb and the packages they offer.
Kisses and Love
