It’s my 31st week of pregnancy today. I have 9 more weeks to do. We just had another peek at my Zeeka yesterday morning as we visited Asian Hospital’s Women’s Health department. Last week (week 30), we had our first 4D Ultrasound, but Zeeka that time was sound asleep. To add to that she, placed her umbilical cord infront of her face so we couldn’t take a good picture of it. She showed herself for 2 minutes and really looked at the ‘cameras’ and then hid. My daughter is already trained for the paparazzi as early as now.
Anyway, yesterday, I went with my family to check out Zeeka. The tip of the Dra. who did my ultrasound the last time was to eat and drink a lot before having the 4D Ultrasound. So that is what I did. I ate a half cup of brown rice, longanisa and taho for breakfast. I also drink A LOT of water! Because of this, when we got to Asian Hospital, I rushed to the rest room to pee! I think I overdid ‘drinking’. Anyway, true enough, Zeeka was now more enthusiastic and awake!
Here a video of her getting inis (irritated) with all the scan and picture taking! 🙂 LOL!
She was gracious enough to look at us the whole time! Good job, baby!
Does she look like me or my husband, EJ? 🙂 hehe!
The 4D Ultrasound at Asian Hospital costs Php 4500. You have to make an appointment. The best time to have a 4D Ultrasound is between 28 – 31 weeks. In Asian Hospital, they have obstetricians who really take time out and wait for your baby to show itself in order to take a good picture. Aside from that, they of course, have to go through the entire process of checking on the bones, body parts, and weight of the baby. The fee comes with a CD of videos and pictures of your baby. They will also give you two printed colored pictures and several black and white ones.
The doctor gave us one free scan since during the first visit, we didn’t really get to see a lot of Zeeka. So again, tips before you have a 4D Ultrasound is to take in a lot of water and food! Really! This will help, indeed.
Just wanted to share!
Good thing you blogged about this, I didn’t know that you’re supposed to eat and drink for better ultrasound results. It will be my 31st week this Monday and we’re going to have ours done one of these days.
Glad to be of help, Dea! 🙂 Can’t wait to see your baby’s pictures! 🙂 Good luck!
We had ours done earlier. 🙂 Linked you up on my blog entry: http://thishappylittlehome.blogspot.com/2013/01/the-one-with-3d-ultrasound.html
