  • I so look forward to these updates, when I had my babies I only had one scan with my daughter at 12 weeks and I also had twins so had many scans with them, but I missed out on the development, it is great reading how a little person is growing, amazing that we are at 33 weeks and so much has happened, we are getting close now, looking forward to week 34.


  • such an amazing journey our little ones go on before we get to meet them, and us mums do it all (well ok nearly all of it!)
