Shanks #3 at 20 week scan

Look at that leg - do you think he'll play for Aberdeen?!

This photo shows the baby face-on with his hands beside his head.

Today was the 20 week scan and we were very excited to see the baby again and play 'spot the willy' while the midwife avoided saying he or she! (they won't tell you the gender anymore in case you sue them). We couldn't work out if it was a boy or a girl so I'm still saying he and Iain is saying she just to wind me up. The baby was kicking away and opening and closing his mouth which was so cute to watch. The scans have improved so much in 5 years! Everything was fine so that's a relief. We are now half-way through the pregnancy and my bump is getting a lot bigger. The midwife said it was normal for a 20 week bump so everyone that's been saying it's a small bump can get lost! So far Iain and I have agreed on a boys name (which amazingly for us we've managed to keep secret, even from my Mum) but he's not agreed to any of the three girls names I've suggested. Or come up with anything decent himself. Still, we've got time I suppose!

I don't know about the sex of the baby, but it looks like it's going to have chicken wings.

What are you on about - 'chicken wings'!?

Ian said...

Look at the top picture. Pretty sure there's a chicken drumstick where the legs are meant to be.

I don't know about chicken wings??? But that's a mighty soccer leg if I ever saw one! For sure!

(um. I mean, futball. I should have said mighty futball leg.)

ian: You've clearly got food on the brain - there's no resemblance to a chicken wing, except that it's a fairly small, articulated limb part of an animal with some bones in it. Actually, I see what you mean.

It did occur to me that maybe you'd just gone to KFC on the way to the doctor for the scan.

I reckon you should stick a poll up for the three girls names. Got to drive that traffic to your blog.
