Well, I’m talking about the domain name I’m planning to buy for Baby Z.

I have been planning of getting one for him since January but since Baby Z is not cooperating in showing his gender over the pelvic ultrasound, the plans of buying him a domain with his name has been moved and moved.

Last month, 2 OB check ups ago, the gender was confirmed but I haven’t bought the domain, me and hubby just finalized Baby Z name.  Two weeks ago, my latest OB check up, just to confirm again, I asked the OB to check the gender again since hubby came with me.  I wanted him to show Baby Z’s gender.  Unfortunately, Baby Z became shy didn’t want to show his daddy whether he’s a boy or a girl.  ^_^

Today, I’m going back for my check up, 36 weeks of my pregnancy and the start of my weekly check ups, and I’m definitely (definitely) going to confirm the gender for the last time, though I can ask for it every check up because of the free ultrasound. ^_^

Though I’ll be able to confirm the gender today, I’m still in the middle of the question: to buy the domain now or wait until Baby Z comes out?



Finally, the gender of my second baby is confirmed!

ouchie, shot!

It’s a BOY!

I visited my OB-Gyne this yesterday afternoon for my pre-natal check up (and a tetanus toxoid shot too) and fortunately, baby Z’s gender has been revealed!

Honestly, the excitement didn’t sink in first because my doctor got worried when she saw baby Z’s weight as she was doing a pelvic ultrasound.  It’s like, baby Z ‘s age does not tally with her computation of my due date.  The scan is showing that he’s 3 weeks early.  She advised me to get a Congenital Anomaly Scan and continue with the OGTT (75g) before I come back for my visit after 2 weeks.

When she told me to get the Congenital Anomaly Scan, the excitement of knowing the gender of my baby fades.  Hearing ‘congenital’ got me worried and now it got me thinking if there’s something wrong with my baby?  My OB-Gyne said that we need it to check the baby.  Maybe one of hubby’s aunt is guessing that we’ll need it to be able to confirm the age of the baby and when he really is due.

Though I’d love to know when is the exact date of delivery, I don’t think I need to spend more than 2k for a congenital scan.  My MIL simply suggested that there’s no need for that, we will just expect for baby Z as early as 2nd week of April if that’s the case.

As for the OGTT, I’ll be scheduling it next week, before holy week and after all the school affair of my Little Zoie.

Do you think I need to have that Congenital Anomaly Scan?

PWhile I’m waiting for my Little Zoie to finish her 2nd day of taking exams for the 2nd quarter, I got a suddenr craving for Jollibee’s Jolly Hotdog meal. So, what I did is, cross the national road and viola… I’m at Jollibee SM already! ^_^


Eating this meal alone is no fun at all… good thing I’m using hubby’s mobile phone and I busied myself surfing the net with SM’s free WiFi access for everyone.  ^_^

Happy Preggy Tummy!
