It's a...

The baby wriggled around incessantly, kicked and punched me endlessly and did round upon round of head-over-heels until the sonographer, my husband and I were doubled up with laughter. I was scanned three times with gaps of 20 minutes between each scan, but eventually all necessary measurements were taken and my stubborn, active, playful baby was declared fine and dandy. It had passed the big, scary 20 week anomaly scan with flying colours and "it" was pronounced "she".

Yes, we're having a baby girl!

You must be thrilled. She looks sooooo real!!! I guess that is a totally non-mom comment. Does it feel wierd to have something growing within you?

Southways,
I felt weird all the time throughout my pregnancy. I felt very relieved when she was taken out of my body.

And so cute already!

I don't feel weird - but I thought it would before I got pregnant. Somehow it feels entirely natural to have someone moving inside me. The idea is weird, but it doesn't feel that way.

Many thanks once again all! I agree with Anja - I've never been a broody person - I've never yearned for a child - and it should feel entirely strange having another heart beat and a new life growing inside of me. But it feels entirely natural in reality.
