It's a Girl!

We went for detailed scan on monday...detailed scan is like an overall check of the baby's size, organs (to check the heart is beating ok, kidneys ok), facial features (like ears, lips ok..), feet and hands, spine growing ok, brain fluids, umbilical cord ok, and so on. So it's like a lil movie of baby. ..longer than normal. So we did see her mouth opening and closing, her heart beating really fast and blood moving in and out of her heart's 4 chambers (like some mini bio lesson i try to recall), her bladder (as pointed out by the Radiographist), even the fluids through the umbilical cord. One of her arms was over on her head (which reminds me of how i sleep sometimes and this is not the first time we saw her with her arm at her head), and the other arm clasped. Most of the time we couldn't really identify much (other than the hands, feet and spine) if not for the radiographer who pointed it out.

Actually, the more difficult part was trying to get a picture of her face because she was lying face down at a seemingly very comfortable corner...like if u see here...

whell...after shaking her for a while...and me trying to turn to one side, she did for a moment turn her head and showed her face for a while. hee..shy girl. :P

though i hope she would have turned around somehow...dunno how it is a comfortable position to snuggle..but i guess babies bob all around mummy's womb.

and yes..this was one of the first things to find out...that she's a girl..lil paishe to show my baby's bottom out here...but i can't seem to figure out how the radiologist identify anyway. amazing how they can use ultrasound to take all kinds of angles

this part is of her arm...one over her head..and the other is her hand clasped.

So far so good...and she weighs 392g at that time...21wks + 1day

more next time..going to zz le...
