Flashback Friday – The First Time

I do enjoy joining in with the range of memes out there in the blogosphere; The Gallery, Silent Sunday, Music I Want my Children to Listen to, and Listography are my regulars. So when CafeBebe decided to try her hand at one, I was eager to join in.

The premise is that everyone loves 'trawling back through the photo archives', and for me this is definitely true. So I had a good old think about my first post to this meme and came up with this favourite photo.The title of this post has dual-purpose: the first time I've done this but also, well you'll read why.

It's a rather personal photograph; I asked hubby if he minded me posting it and he replied that he would have thought it was the other way around. But I've not got a problem with this: yes he's right that it is personal, after all it's my uterus! However, this is also the first time that I saw The Boy. It's such a special memory. We were both so scared, but as she pressed down to start the scan the first thing we saw was him waving. I know it was a 'get the hell off me with that thing woman!' but we prefer to think it was a 'hello mummy and daddy, here I am!'

After the scan and before seeing the consultant, we sat in the waiting room giggling and pouring over the photos. Hubby made a phonecall to both sisters and I sent a picture message to my closest friends who didn't know yet. The memory of that excitement will never diminish.

    That's such a lovely photo to start this new blog feature with. I can remember when we saw our little girlie for the first time. OH was so excited he couldn't stop asking the monographer questions while I just stared at the screen falling in love with my little girl. That was about 20 weeks ago an now it won't be long til we finally meet her x

    It's great isn't it. I just entered mine at no.16.
    I know what you mean about personal as I have just posted a picture of my bump, but it's now my second time doing so.
    Hopefully not tooooo many people will look at it.
    Hugs, Liska x

    Awww that first scan photo is the best isn't it? Makes it suddenly seem real – that you are actually pregnant I mean! Great choice for flashback Friday 🙂
