Baby Caterpillar - 21 Weeks.



So we had our scan!! Was just incredible, bubby looked perfect, and caught up to the measurements, only measuring a week behind now!
We also got a sneak peak of what little bubby is, but no revealing YET!
Here's our gorgeous little darling!!

 

After the scan we had the doctors appointment, who said the baby is looking good, but there's a 5mm cyst on it's brain. The doctor didn't say much more about it, just that we had to have more scans and more appointments. Only time will tell, but we're hoping for the best.

I haven't been too bad sickness wise this week but have started to feel really faint and hot flushy! I can't win!! I'm thinking it must be my iron, so going to dose myself up ;)

My bumps growing so so quickly now, and I'm putting on about 500 grams A WEEK now!
Check out how quick my bump is growing!! It's insane now!

HALF WAY BABY!
Baby Caterpillar is half way cooked, and finally showing! 
We have our scan in a couple of days, I'm so excited to see baby again, but a little nervous hoping everything is okay (I'm sure it will be). 
We're also hoping baby has caught up in measurements and hopefully we get a sneak peak of what gender baby is ;) .
I can't help but wonder when my 'half way' really is. Will I go early again, or late? 

Daddy felt a little tiny movement from the outside this week, how exciting!! I haven't felt a whole lot because the placenta is in the way.
