today marks the third visit to my OB... as with the previous two visits, my heart was filled with anxiety. as a first time mom-to-be, my mind was filled with heaps of questions, largely concerned with the well-being of little one. the very moment i laid eyes on the ultrasound machine and saw the movement of little one, followed by hearing the heartbeat, my heart and mind felt at ease. here's what the scan looks like.

if you look carefully at the scan, its not a complete 'picture' of little one - he/she has grown quite a fair bit and i was told its not really possible to have a full scan of him/her from now on. the scan also showed a different position from the last time (the head was on the left side previously and now, its on the right). as he/she is very active, doc had a hard time trying to capture a clear scan. the only two measurements taken were the head circumference and thigh length, unfortunately, both numbers have now eluded me. the EDD has been pushed back a couple of days - not that its a concern since nobody i know actually gave birth on the EDD. in any case, doc is sure that little one is a bb gal but i'm not taking his words for it (yet). i've read that many times, docs were wrong in 'predicting' the gender so i really don't want to rush out now and buy all the pink frocks, only to find that i'm going to have a bb boy. :)

i have been faithfully taking my supplements in the last few weeks (although i really hate popping pills). i still feel queasy now and then, definitely still feeling exhausted (little one must be draining all my energy), occasionally bothered by a bad migraine but overall, i'm feeling pretty good. appetite is getting better and obviously, i'm getting heavier - all in all, its finally sinking in... i'm going to have a bb!

other than the normal scan, my blood was drawn (OUCH!) and urine was taken for testing. hopefully, all results come back normal. i will know the tests results on my next OB visit scheduled on 23 november - unless there's bad news then i will be informed within the next two weeks. in the meantime, please keep your fingers crossed and keep me and little one in your prayers.
