My Second Ultrasound

This is the moment that we've been waiting for. Gender identification ni baby. I am currently 23 weeks and 3 days pregnant. Usually your baby's gender can be determined at 4th month but just to make sure and hindi sayang sa pera, we decided to do it at my 5th month. My husband is expecting a baby girl but I want a baby boy as our first baby. I have several reasons why I want a baby boy.

1. Physical Appearance

I am pertaining to myself. Kapag kasi babae, hindi mawawala sa mga Pilipino na dapat blooming ka kapag baby girl and kapag baby boy naman ay sumaswanget ka. There's no scientific proof about this pero nakagawian na nateng mga Pilipino to. Since ako, hindi ako confident sa sarili ko and hindi naman ako GGSS, mas gusto ko ng boy na lang. Parang may reason ka din bakit hindi ka blooming while you're pregnant. But I appreciate those people who keeps on telling me on my first trimester na they think baby girl ang dinadala ko. It's another way na rin for saying na you still look beautiful even you're pregnant.

2. Scared that history repeat itself

Knowing myself alam ko lahat ng kalokohan ko nung dalaga pa ako which is why I am afraid na baka ganun din or worst pa ang gawin kung ang panganay ko ay baby girl. It depends on how you discipline your child but you'll never know what happen in the future. So I prefer a baby boy kasi alam ko mas may control sila sa sarili nila when they get old and hindi sila basta papalit palit ng decision.

3. I never had a Kuya

Yes, I am the eldest in our family. I only have one sibling and hindi kami nagkasundo since birth. I like the idea of having Kuya. I keep on asking myself, siguro kung may Kuya ako na nagpoprotekta sakin and nagsasabi sakin kung paano mag-isip ang mga lalaki, I will never be excited to have a boyfriend at the very young age. I know it could be father's duty din but me and my parents are not really close. So when the day that someone court me, I gave myself easily. I keep on imagining that Kuya will be very overprotective with his younger sister when they get old which is why I like a son as my first baby.

4. Porma

Admit it, mas mahirap ayusan at hanapan ng magandang damit ang babae. There are a lot of clothes to choose from and different types. Unlike sa boys, there are only several types of clothes for them to wear. Nagkakatalo na lang sa design at pagdadala ng bata. Boys are not maarte when it comes to choosing things or toys. Lastly, hindi mo kelangan iba ibahin ang tali sa buhok kapag boys, you just need a regular haircut for him.

These are my personal reasons why I would like a baby boy. I am wondering before why my husband would like a girl instead of a boy. Baliktad kami eh no. After the ultrasound he revealed to me na gusto niya siya lang lalaki sa buhay ko. Kapag baby boy kasi alam niyang mas mahihigitan siya ni baby. His reason is so weird. Hahaha :D Pero nakakatouch lang na kahit pati kay baby ang selfish niya. Sobrang naramdaman ko yung naguumapaw na love niya para sakin.

Enough of us, let's go back with the ultrasound. Since for gender identification lang yung ultrasound, ok na yung Fetal Biometry ultrasound lang. Para rin siyang standard ultrasound. Meron kasing isa pa, yung tinatawag na Congenital Anomaly Scan. See my post here for my CAS. This ultrasound will check if there are abnormalities sa organs ni baby. They take closer look sa baby para macheck yung condition niya para maagapan pa. This scan should take within 6-7 months ni baby para mas madali makita ng sonographer sa device.

Nirecommend ng friend kong preggy din ang Megaclinic located at 5th floor SM Megamall.


The standard ultrasound will cost P715.00 which is much cheaper than my first ultrasound. Not bad na rin kasi mabilis lang ultrasound. Mostly walang pila, and mabilis ang assistance. Very accommodating and mababait ang mga sonographer. I am recommending this clinic too for future moms na magpapaultrasound. Here's my ultrasound result:









And here he is, I'm having a baby boy! Ako ang nagwagi! Hahahaha :D Hindi ko maexplain yung saya ko nung nakita ko siya sa ultrasound. Makikita mo sa last ultrasound ko yung head niya and he's sucking his thumb. Pati yung bilugan niyang tiyan. So cuuuttteee :) I feel disappointed naman sa asawa ko kasi super nagexpect talaga siya ng baby girl. He's happy pero triple pa siguro saya niya kung baby girl ang result. Anyway we're really both happy to see him and normal naman daw siya sabi ng doctor. Next thing we need to think is baby's name.
