CAS and Baby's Crib

by - 6:00:00 AM



April 5, 2015

Me and my husband went to Megamall for my Congenital Anomaly Scan. When I heard about this, I set my mind na dapat makapag CAS ako. My first choice is In My Womb sa Megamall. They have 2D which cost P2,700 while 3D cost P3,700. However, they don't have printed pictures for 2D unlike 3D. (Sabi nung babae na nakausap ng friend ko sa phone.) My friend had her emergency CAS (sabi kasi namen sabay kami magpaultrasound) when she received the result of her OGTT. She had it in Megaclinic for P2,200. It has printed pictures and mas mura kesa sa In My Womb kaya dun na lang din ako ulit nagpaultrasound. Since wala kaming budget, inantay pa namen yung sahod bago makapagultrasound. It's a bad thing that I did this ultrasound when I'm already 8 months pregnant because some of the organs can't be clearly seen. It is recommended for 6-7 months pregnant women para kitang kita pa yung mga organs.

My CAS Result
Anyway, we actually went there on April 4, but due to holy week wala yung doctor so they resched me on April 5. Sabi ko nun, pag hindi natuloy yung CAS ko that day, hindi na ako magpapaCAS but luckily the doctor was there. Usually it takes almost 1 hour kasi tinitignan talaga lahat ng organs na pwede makita, miski yung veins ng heart nakikita. One thing na nakapagpasaya sakin is sobrang likot niya nung time na yun kahit yung doctor natutuwa. She even asked me kung bagong kaen daw ako, but nung time na yun gutom na gutom na ako. We even have a closer look on his face, ang taba ng pisngi niya and nakasimangot siya. Siguro nga kasi nagugutom na kame. Hehehe :) Another thing is nakita ko yung hands niya na nagkoclose open. Nung binibilang ng doctor yung toes niya, hawak niya yung isang paa niya. Tapos hindi nahirapan yung doctor na alamin yung gender niya kasi hindi siya nahihiyang ipakita.

Grabe yung tuwa nameng mag-asawa nung time na yun. Kung alam ko lang na ganun siya ka active sana yung 3D na lang pinili ko para mas kita namen. Ayoko sana ng 3D kasi usually mahiyain ang mga fetus, tapos pare pareho lang naman itsura ng mga baby sa 3D and mas magastos. Anyway, ang isa lang sa problem na nakita is 1 week bigger si baby. Acceptable naman daw siya pero mas mabuting magdiet pa daw ako para hindi lumaki yung baby. Mahihirapan akong manganak kapag ganun.

That day, we also checked for a few things that we need to buy for our baby. Ilang buwan na lang lalabas na ang aming little prince kaya kelangan makapamili na kame. Nakapagconsolidate na din ako ng mga necessary things na dapat namin bilhin and nakapagcheck na ako sa net ng mga best reviews and most recommended. First we check for crib. At first, play yard na lang sana bibilhin ko kasi mas mura and nafofold pa siya. Besides, magagamit mo lang siya for infant, kapag malaki laki na si baby, mostly ayaw na niya sa crib. Mas gusto na lang niyang matulog katabi ang parents. But my mother told me to buy a wooden crib instead of play yard. Mas matibay daw kasi yun para kapag nakakatayo na si baby hindi siya mahirapan. So we looked for a wooden crib. Pinakamababa na yung P6999 sa Megamall. Hindi pa ganun kaganda yung crib. We decided to buy the P7999 crib since my discount coupon naman ako na less P500. But we're still not convince sa type na crib and it's price so we check Babyland along Shaw Blvd. Then we found our desire crib.







My husband bought this on April 13 and we receive this crib through free delivery on April 14. The brand of our crib is Happy Dino. Meron siyang attachable cradle which is very convenient para di ka na mahirapan maghele. There's also a storage at the bottom. Pero pwede namang ibaba yung board kapag nakakatayo na si baby. Meron na din siyang mosquito net na pwedeng palitan ng mga hanging crib toys. Meron din siyang wheels para di ka mahirapang ilipat ng pwesto yung crib. This crib cost P8000. Mas ok siya kesa dun sa nakita namen sa Megamall kasi yun ordinary crib lang though mas maganda yung kahoy na ginamit dun sa isa. But with this crib I think mas nakasulit kami.

We also bought a set of crib beddings in Babyland aside from the one in the picture para may pamalit kami kapag lalabhan na yung isa. It's a set of comforter, pillow, pillow case, 2 bolstercase and 2 bolster pillow. I attempt to buy bumpers para pag nasagi ni baby yung gilid ng crib hindi masakit, but I found out that it's not recommended to have bumpers. American Academy of Pediatrics are against of it for SIDS prevention. This blue crib beddings cost P1,600. That one in our crib cost P1,340 dahil sale siya sa Baby Company. Gusto ni husband ang color white para madaling makita yung insects and dumi.

Tip: Buy a pillow that has a cut-out in the middle -- much like a donut to prevent flat head and SIDS.

I love our crib and I can't wait to see my baby boy sleeping peacefully inside of it at dinuduyan duyan. Hindi pa kami bumili ng mattress kasi hindi pa naman niya gagamitin. Saka na pag hindi na siya kasya sa cradle or kapag natuto na siyang gumapang.
