Turns out baby number three is the most uncooperative baby so far when it comes to scanning!
We went back to the hospital today in the hope that baby would be less inclined to stay curled up in a tight ball so that the sonographer could finish off where she had to leave off two weeks ago.
This time we had to take Isla with us, although Lilly was at nursery – Isla lasted all of 30 seconds before she got upset and started crying, so Tony had to take her back out to the waiting room.
The sonographer did manage to get a look at some of the things she couldn’t see last time – the kidneys, cord, and some parts of the heart, but unfortunately as baby was stubbornly lying on her tummy and refusing to move regardless of any change of position, she still couldn’t see the top of the heart and the “out pipe” (whatever that is). So the upshot is that in two weeks time, at 24 weeks, a consultant will try again to get a glimpse of this illusive child!
I am booked in for a gestational diabetes test then anyway, so at least it doesn’t mean an additional trip to the hospital.
