I'm finally 12 weeks pregnant now, so I'm starting to feel more at ease with things now. I had my scan the other day and omigosh, s/he just looks so cute in there. lol. I was wondering...what should I expect within the next few weeks? and is it normal to already have a really hard tummy? it just feel unreal, i was a little worried cos the midwife at my scan said that bud, (we call him/her) bud for now. anyway yea she said bud was a little small for 12 weeks, apparently they're supposed to be 5cm but my wee baby is only just over 4cm?? Sad

Hey thanks girlys. Yea, I mean the woman doing the scan said I was definately 12 weeks but not to be too worried for now and they'll keep a close eye on baby at my 20 week scan. I'm just getting so excited now, wanna start shopping! I'm giving it a few weeks yet thought, mind you same can't be said for my mum, heres me thinking she'll go mad being a grandma at 35 and me being 15 but she's out buying all sorts of baby clothes. ha ha! anyway i'll keep you informed. x
