quick update

No baby yet I'm afraid, but I thought I'd give a quick update. Hospital was really good yesterday, I was so pleasantly surprised!
Andy and I dropped the kids to a friend and got there about 10am. We were seen for a scan straight away. Baby doing great, saw a great picture of the ribs and spine and a lovely wee heart beating away hard. Lots of fluid around baby and baby had a full bladder. Got bp and urine checked all great there too and no waiting. I saw the registrar (I thought it was going to be a bit of a battle here), but he looked at my notes and said to come back at 40+12 (Wednesday) for a scan if nothing had happened by then. The word 'induction' was not mentioned!
All done in less than an hour, so Andy and I had a cake and coffee. Well, it'd be rude not to!
I'm feeling so much better now, I suppose I was quite stressed and worried by it all and didn't realise how much it was affecting me physically.
Also, my mum arrived in the evening...she almost didn't...but that's a long story...
We're thrilled to have her here, it's very exciting that she'll be here for the birth.
So come on baby Angel, we're really ready for you now!


  1. That's great, Laura! I find I often get a lot of anxiety about visits- especially when it comes to the hospital, and usually I am surprised how it goes. :)
    Come on, baby!

  2. A wonderful update. It sounds like everything is in place for this sweet wee one to arrive. Enjoy the time. Take care.

  3. Yay! Such good news. May it all be smooth sailing from here!
