21 week pregnancy update

We have had an amazing week this week, seeing our baby at the 20 week scan, finding out that she’s healthy and finding out that she’s a little girl!

It’s May day bank holiday today and Alistair had some work he needed to do so Harry and I went for a walk with my parents.  It was such a nice morning, Harry loves being in the great outdoors so it’s nice now the weather is getting warmer that we can do this more often.
