My much awaited gender reveal scan was done on my 25th week of pregnancy. Since we are on a tight budget due to construction of our "New house", my plan of having 4D/3D Ultrasound at Ogusca or InMyWomb did not materialized.
I choose to have Congenital Anomaly Scan instead, after consulting my OB-GYN on what's the most practical choice to take, she said she would mostly recommend CAS because it's a detailed report of baby's development, can check any abnormalities and congenital issues while 4D/3D mostly focus on facial features and serves only as souvenir keepsake for my unborn child. She personally remarked that 4D/3D has no use ("walang silbi") compared to CAS and says I can take tons of pictures after delivery.
I made a practical choice to take CAS; but I swear, if budget permits, I would go for both!(hehe). Thankfully, the results were all normal. My excitement and joy was doubled after Dr. Sonologist revealed that we are having a Girl! An answered prayer!
|Yiheee! a GIRL! (nail art was another story =P).|
|Kuya, excited much!|
In less than 30 minutes, the following were scanned:
|CAS worth Php 2,040 at Alabang Medical Clinic - Main Branch|
We are truly blessed to have a baby girl as new addition to our family. To be honest, I made a research on "how to conceive a girl", this was actually a planned pregnancy making a 5 years gap from my son. I am 90% confident of conceiving a girl after following some methods. Anyway, there's no harm in trying, I just made an assurance to myself that in case we failed, we can always have another shot! ahihi.
