The Baby Inside....

Yesterday was a busy day for us. What we did...

  1. Went to the tailor to get measurements for my hubby and son. My son's gonna be a bible bearer and he'll be wearing a suit!
  2. Went to Active Fun for lunch with my in-laws.
  3. Finished up my homework and submitted it ahead of time!
Yesterday's highlight was undergoing my Congenital Anomaly Scan. It's an abdominal ultrasound, just more detailed, to check every part of my baby and try to see if everything's all right. The main reason for this is my age. I'm on the wrong side of thirty (closer to 40) and we just wanna make sure everything's okay.

I'll just post pictures of those images that I can identify. Of course, I'm no expert, but the perinatologist (Dr. Crisologo) pointed out each part to me :).

Hi, Baby!
That's the face. :) You can actually make out the nose, the eye sockets and the lips if you use a little imagination.



That's the hand, bunched up into a fist. You can actually count the finger. Of course there are 5! :) Don't ask me though if it's the right or the left coz I really can't tell :).


Foot images! The one on the left is a view from the side.
The foot on the right is in-your-face! You can count the toes. :)



Ok, what do you think?
Is it a baby boy or a baby girl?

Here's a closer look.
Take note of where the arrow is pointing :).

I'll spare you the pictures of the organs, mainly because I can't really tell.

Anyway, the perinatologist assures us that everything about the baby is ok. The estimated weight, cardiac rate, spine, brain, heart, everything that we looked at seems to be telling us that our little child is developing nicely! And that's the most important thing about the ultrasound!
