It's a baby girl kitten!
We had our 19 week morphology scan last week. It's so exciting to see the baby moving on the big screen. We got a wave from our little one and saw lots of rolling around. All the measurements seem to be in line with our dates and our obstetrician is happy with the progress thus far.
The baby's movements get more and more definite every day. They have migrated from small indistinct flutters to definite movements. There are active periods and periods of sleeping every day. It's so funny to think our little one is developing patterns and habits already.
The most exciting news is we decided to find out what we were having, and it looks like we'll be welcoming a little girl into our house in October. Very exciting news, although I was convinced we were having a boy, despite everyone else thinking I was having a girl. Shows Mummas don't always know best, and hence we only had a boys name agreed. We have started a list of girls names so if anyone has any brilliant suggestions please let me know. Our only requirements are that it needs to not have S sounds (our interesting and somewhat unpronounceable surname has two S sounds in it already) and the name needs to be reasonably common - but not too common - to offset the unusual nature of the surname she will be saddled with.
I am now fascinated with little girl clothes, hence the purchase of the above onesie from Seed when I was in town yesterday. I also spotted an ocelot cardigan which has Little Miss Kitty's name written all over it...
It's going to be an expensive few months methinks.
