A Baby Girl And A New House All In One Day

What an amazing day!

Some of you may know that we are in the middle of a house move, and we have been patiently waiting for the keys to be dropped into our eager hands for some time now.

Some of you may also know that we have been waiting patiently for our 20 week anomaly scan, that would hopefully reveal what the baby will be. What is it Team Blue this time or was it to be another member of Team Pink?

Ofcourse it was yet another girl! 3rd member for the Newhouse team pink 🙂 Obviously we only make girls!

It felt like the whole day was spent in either a waiting room, or on the road.
From getting the keys at 10am, until our scan at 3pm, we were between the new house and the old house shifting just a small amount of the boxes and doing a huge amount of cleaning! The new house is just perfect and as soon as the kids saw it, they were in love!
But we still have a long road ahead of us for decorating and such…. How exciting! I say now…… I probably won’t think it’s so exciting this time next week!

So, back to the baby scan…
Everything is just fine. She is growing perfectly and is a healthy little thing. We were in the scan a little loner than my previous scans with the girls as she was hiding her face and at a funny angle, giving the sonographer a big of a hard time to do her job! l have been called back for another scan at 36 weeks though as my placenta is anterior (at the front of my tummy) and slightly blocking the exit… Not something I wanted to hear.
Hopefully my placenta will shift upwards as my belly grows and my idea of a home birth can become a reality!
I don’t want a C section!!!!!

All in all, it was a good day! A new house for the Newhouse family and another Newhouse girl to join our Newhouse clan….
Now that’s a lot of Newhouse’s!
