in any case, we are glad that the scans showed that little Claire is developing normally. dr tan scanned her brain and heart and no abnormalies were detected so that's a relief. she is really active now, kicking me constantly... so much so that i feel like 'tearing' her out of me sometimes! here's a scan of her brain.
its no longer possible to have a full scan of little one now that she is about 35cm (that's longer than the ruler that we are used to in school!) and i finally understand why my EDD keeps getting pushed back. little Claire is slightly below average in terms of size. based on estimation, she currently weighs 668g @ 25 weeks. nothing to worry about though, coz dear hubby and i are rather small sized ourselves. anyway, i hope she doesn't grow too big otherwise i'm going to have a hard time delivering her naturally. i am hoping for a epidural-free natural birth (and if i had a choice, as little tearing as possible!).
i've eaten durian twice in the last month as my colleague has a theory that bb will have more hair if mummy eats durian during pregnancy. yes, old wives tale but no harm trying, right? i am rather paranoid about bb being borned without hair coz i think bbs w/o hair are really ugly (like some bbs i know!!) haha...
and once again, i've started counting down to the next visit to the OB!
