Well, the ultrasound result was…ok. two hands, two legs, as the technician describe it. The position is breech and the sex is hard to determine coz the feet is blocking the view. WHAT? I was lying there for a full 30 minutes and that’s all they can say!
Here’s the thing, the doctor who was holding the scanner is sort of an intern (I’m a university hostipal, btw)…who took forever…ok, maybe just a little longer than normal to find my baby’s parts….then afterwards, the actual doctor comes in and asked her what she saw…and check if it was right.
Oral exam ba ito?
I wouldn’t have mind if they’d only give me my moment. You know the usual here’s your baby’s feet…and that the mouth…can you see her nose? But at the end of it all, the doctor just told me my kid have two arms and two legs and the feet is blocking the view of his/her organ…oh, please wait outside for the result. Kainis ha!
The pictures didn’t help much…they hand me the result an hour later with 3 snapshots of my baby with all of it looking like the baby’s back. Next time, I’m not gonna have my ultrasound there. Kainis talaga!
Anyways, I lost half a kilo this month which was weird considering that I’m eating a lot lately. Dear Husband corrected me on this, claiming that I just ordered more but don’t actually finish them. He’s the one left with so much food to eat. Maybe…
The doctor said I shouldn’t worry and I’m not. It will probably be the same as my first…little or no weight gain till 6 months. Then, when the baby comes he/she will be 8 point-something lbs. I just have to keep on eating healthy food and not to forget my vitamins. Have I mentioned that I have so much vitamins to take? Well, I do. I’m currently taking a multivit (once a day), an iron supplement (once a day) and calcium supplement (3x a day). And they’re huge!
Baby’s heartbeat is ok though it was hard to get a decent reading on the fetal doppler. The doctor explained that my placenta is in front of my tummy so it’s sound is interfering with the sound of the baby’s heartbeats. Something like that.
Anyway, I probably just have to wait for the next check-up…
