Pregnancy update 20 weeks: Scan and Nursery Artwork

I know what you’re all thinking “but it’s only been a few days since her 19 weeks post!” I know that…. but we had our 20 week scan yesterday and I was too excited to wait longer to share the pictures 🙂

So here’s a bit of a reminder of “The story so far”

20 weeks: 


Before you all ask – we don’t know the gender. We didn’t want to know. We want it to be a surprise. What we do know it that our little one is a mover. Bubs didn’t stay still the entire scan – which was so exciting to see. It wasn’t too impressed with being poked around on the scan – based on the hand waving we could see!

What we also got to see was bub’s heart. It was amazing as you could see each of the four chambers. We also go to see the baby’s spine, ribs, kidneys and brain. Apparently everything looks healthy and as it should at this stage. So that was really good news!


This is a slightly closer look at the side of bub’s face. You can see it’s playing with the cord I think.


This is a picture of it’s adorably cute little hand. We can see all the bones in the arm as well – I was so shocked about the detail we could see. Apparently bubs spreading out the fingers is a good sign.


According to the technician, this is a sole of one of bubs’s feet. Again, you can see all of the little toes!! They are just ridiculously adorable.

I spent the rest of the day being kicked and poked in the stomach 🙂 I don’t think bubs appreciated the change in routine!

Nursery Decorations

We’ve stated putting together the decorations for the nursery. We’ve both got a range of things we like – so the first addition was some Marvel injection into the bedroom. I brought the box frames about a year ago with the intention of doing something with them. This seemed like the perfect opportunity 🙂


We printed off the comic covers onto photo paper (I did this in Tesco as I figured the printing quality would be better!).


The characters I attached to the mount using a glue gun (that tool is actually amazing!). The mount was cardboard and so it stuck easily.


I had initially planned to have them holding the guns etc. However, the box frames were not big enough, so they had to go above/below the rather awesome lego figures. I have some more lego figures left for other super heros, so now I just have to work out what to do with them…..

  1. I can’t believe how clear those pictures are 🙂 looks like a beautiful healthy baby, this is so exciting! Nice decorations for the nursery too 🙂 not far off from what hubby and I would like to do when we have little ones of our own 🙂

  2. Half way there now? Time sure flies. Enjoy every moment. 🙂
    I like the idea for the nursery decorations. They are so pretty, and will be around for some time, plus you can add to them as you go about.
