Mines booked in for the 20th of march too. I've already had an anomaly scan (which is the 18-20wks scan) when i went into the hospital for bleeding last week but they couldn't tell me if it was a boy or a girl so said they'll do another next month. I cant wait. Im thinking girl but my instincts were wrong last time so it may be a boy

I'm booked in for the 18th of March - seriously hanging out for it original.gif the weeks keep on ticking over pretty quickly so I hope it continues to go fast!!... DH will be deployed at the time - which is awesome as he has to be extra nice to make sure I let him know if his instincts are right and we're having a girl... Hope the next 4 weeks and 4 days go FAST!!... Plus - even though 12 week scans were normal it will be a relief to know that the little one is all ok original.gif

I booked straight after my 12 week scan was done- easier that way, even though I still have to get a referral. Mine fell on Easter so was moved to the week afterwards. April 8th, two days before my birthday. What a birthday pressie biggrin.gif
