Pregnancy @ Week 17 : 3rd Check Up (Part 1)

Hello everyone! I just came back from my check-up appointment today. It has been all exciting! Hehe.. x sabar nk cite.

13th Oct 2012 – It’s Saturday. The 1st time check-up that I did on Saturday. My God punye lah ramai org dtg appointment hari Sabtu. Queue for registration pon selang berbelas2 org. Slalu nyer 3-4 org je. But not bad lah..registration je. This time, I came in the morning just for registration because my husband also got another appointment. So I just picked my turn, weighed my body and took my urine. Coming at 8:30am, my turn was number 7! Yg turn number 1 tu dtg pkl 6:30am hagak nyer. :p

But that didn’t matter lah. I left for another errand and came again at 11:40am, waited for 5 minutes and they called me in. Better right??? Save waiting time, save waiting energy, save baby’s energy. :p

Masuk2 je x sempat ddk lg doc ckp “Saleha, your blood is all good, no problem, everything is OK.” Alhamdulillah…! It’s the blood test I did on my previous checkup. As usual, checked blood pressure, ok, and then naik katil! 😀

Bismillah…Start scanning…

Doc, “Wahh…cantik tali pusat die.” Haa…that’s the 1st words. Hehe…tali pusat pon cantik. J Makin lame, makin besar baby ku! Last time, the head was on the left of the screen and the legs belah kanan. But this time, kepala belah kanan, kaki belah kiri. Wahh berpusing2 die kat dalam yer! (Mom’s theory :p) So the doctor measured my baby. Measured the legs, the head’s diameter and also the stomach’s diameter. The measurement is to know the baby’s current size is as its current week. Should be more or less, the same.

Even since the 1st checkup, my baby’s measurement is alwaysss more than the current week. Extra by 3 days like that la.. Whoahh… big baby! Mom makan byk sgt ker?? Hehe…x kesah la kan..xkan lah nk btol2 exact plak! Apelah mom nie..detail! :p But it’s kinda worrying if the baby’s size is too big and it can’t go thru my cervix then I gotta be c-zer! Aaa…takut.. Hopefully not. So far the doctor doesn’t highlight anything yet so keep calm.

My baby….taraaaaaaaaa….! 😀

My Baby ~ 16 weeks 3days 🙂

See, this time, the baby’s head is no more oversized than the body. It’s progressing well. Alhamdulillah..

And then the doctor moved the cursor to……the genital! Aaaaaa!! Yes, at week 14 the baby’s sex organ is already developed and we can see it now. Tapiiii….the doctor x ckp pape ponn….

Mother-to-be’s, do you wanna know your baby’s sex within pregnancy or would you wanna keep it surprised? My answer is definitely, NOW! I wanna know it now! Hahaha…overexcited! And nervous at the same time..huh! Ppl surrounding are neverendingly guessing by looking at my bump, my appearance…which everything is superstitious. Honestly I don’t mind the gender. 🙂

Oh, fyi, even since the day 1 I got to know I’m pregnant, I already have that instinct of my baby’s gender! Seriously! Hehehe…But its not just a blind instinct. I have knowledge and feelings that support my instinct. So it’s guessing game againnn….to know the baby’s gender and to asses my motherly instinct whether its working well or not! Hahha…

And then doctor scanned the other parts and we’ve been questioning….and then…I asked, “So you can see already… it’s Boy? Girl?” (Nak tanye pon takut2! :p)

Doc, “Yea, u want me to tell ya?”

Me, “Aaa…yes..”

Doctor moved back the cursor to its private part“It’s a …. _______”

Tadaaaaa…!!!

Eddy Junior or Salz Junior? :p

Hahahaha……can you see???? Captured from the bottom part with the legs up. And the cursor!! Hahha….So, Gegurl?? Bebird?? Ahhh..okay dah! Teka sendiri!! Write ur answer in the comment box 😀

Alhamdulillahhh….. We are so happy and pleased to know that. Can start shopping now!! :p

Done with ultrasound session. Remember the previous checkups I didn’t know what to ask? Ha, this time, I have prepared a list of questionsss! This one month gap left me with full of doubt about this and that. Jadi, bertanyalah pada yg pakar.

But I don’t wanna keep this post any longer. To be continued in Part 2. Ecehhhh :p Thanks for reading!

Update : My Lil Baby inside is 16 weeks old!

p/s : 13th October 2009 was the day my husband and I began to be “in a relationship” status. How remarkable it is when these 3 years have turned us from two become three…Alhamdulillah. Happy Anniversary.

All the excitement…Too Cute! =)
