A post prior to this one, I mentioned that we are having a girl – but that was based on the baby center.com gender prediction tool, the Chinese Calendar Gender Prediction. The result I’ve got there was a girl – we were having a girl.
And to curtail the longing and excitement me and my husband felt, I requested my OB a pelvic ultrasound to determine our baby’s gender. And on Monday – 12th of December, I had my ultrasound here at Mall of Asia in In My Womb. I chose the pearl package or the 3D ultrasound which contains the 15 shots and colored pictures of my baby and a cd of those still pictures which will be available after 10-15 days.
The procedure first was determining our baby’s health, the length, the body parts, the heart beat, my amniotic fluid, our baby’s position and so on. And then followed by gender determination. We looked at her very closely, baka something lawit will appear but there was nothing, only the two lavia. Here is the picture of our baby’s gender where two arrows are pointing to the lavia. You may hardly see it because it’s black and white. (And I am now thinking how hard it is to have a normal delivery, do i need some Acupuncture Middlewich to ease the pain?)
So the predictions of people around me were correct, only one got wrong 🙂 ate gie hehe…
After the gender prediction, I saw our baby’s face, cute cute. I was so happy then. But there were cases that she was covering her face and the OB can’t find a good shot. I decided to have my re-scan on Friday for better pictures. I hope baby will not cover her face anymore 🙂 I don’t have a copy of the colored pictures yet, only the black and white – to post later 🙂 here.
