Congenital AnomalyScan (CAS) or 4D/3D Ultrasound?

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!
Hi Baby!

In less than 30 minutes, the following were scanned:

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.
