It’s very rare to see a new born that is immediately cute (Of course this is not including your own little bundle of joy). After travelling down the birth canal, and being squashed through parts of the pelvis, can you blame them? Using forceps or ventouse for an assisted delivery can contribute to the head shape deformity momentarily. Not forgetting that babies have been surrounded by amniotic fluid for the last nine months. Imagine yourself being in a pool just for a few hours – you’ll come up wrinkly similar to an oldie.
In spite of this, I still had the curiosity to see what Bump Lentil could look like with a 3D scan. With this piece of technology it was also a reassurance that he was OK. For those that have low risk pregnancies normally only 2 ultrasounds are given. So clicking away on Groupon app, I opted for the Window to the Womb – VIB baby scan package. This included 39% discount of the original price of £130.00. The package derived of 10 minute scan with well-being check, size 6”x4” prints, two 8”x6” prints, two keyrings, USB of all images and scan capturing the baby’s movement.
Window to the Womb staff were very approachable and friendly. After all it is a special moment within pregnancy. All the sonographers are trained and qualified and do their up most to try and get the best pose of your baby. This is anything from taking a walk, pressing slightly on belly, massaging the belly, having sugar snacks/cold drinks and doing a little jiggle. Bump Lentil did not want to play ball, and instead liked hiding his face. To keep him amused in my belly he constantly played with my umbilical cord – no wonder I get random pains! Showing off, he would then brush his feet against his face. I’m very impressed he knows how to entertain himself. This really opened my eyes to what was growing inside me and absolutely loved it! Martin could also see all of this too! We weren’t ascertain about the pictures taken so we were offered another chance to visit free of charge. The second time round he was being even cheekier and not even divulging a glimpse or any section of his face, but wanted to show his balls! We therefore selected photos from the original session and to be honest I loved them. Now all that is left pondering my mind is will he look similar when he’s in this world.
