Pregnancy Week 30 – Meeting Baby Zeeka through a 4D Ultrasound

I can’t believe it! I can already see the features of my Zeeka. We went to the Women’s Health Department of Asian Hospital yesterday. We had our 4D Ultrasound scheduled. Ej and I were so excited to meet Zeeka.

The 4D ultrasound at Asian costs Php 4,550. It comes with a CD of the pictures and a video of your baby. Our appointment was at 10:00 am, but the doctor who was in charge of scanning us, advised me to go and hydrate and eat! This is actually a tip for moms-to-be who will have 4D Ultrasound appointments. Be sure to arrive with a full stomach! Drink a lot of fluids and eat food. Doctors or the one doing the scan will want to have the babies alive, awake and enthusiatic for this procedure.

I went down to have a bagel and two glasses of water. I didn’t go to the restroom anymore before the procedure. The more liquid that you take, the better, since it creates space so it would be easier to find the parts of the body of your baby like the face, limbs, etc.

We were called in at around 11:30 am. Zeeka is still in breech position.

Baby Zeeka, I hope you turn around just in time. Mommy wants to have a normal delivery. hehe!

During the first few takes, Zeeka was smiling with her hands cupping her chin. Talking about a Koreanovela pose! Way to go, girl! Actress in the making. Maybe you could fulfill mommy’s dreams of being an actress. A few seconds later though, she made a fist and hid her face. Aaaaaaw! She then hid also under her umbilical cord.

We couldn’t take any more nice photos of Zeeka. The doctor was kind enough to offer me another 4D Ultrasound schedule Thursday next week, so that we could take better photos.

We then just continued the ultrasound by measuring the body parts and taking the weight of Zeeka. Chubby cheeks Zeeka is now at 3 pounds and 4 ounces. She’s also definitely a girl! The doctor checked again and she was sure.

We left happy. I have the printed out black and white photos, but I still have to come back on Thursday for another $D ultrasound. It’s okay! That means i’ll get to see Zeeka again. I’ll go with my mom and dad, too, on Thursday. They’re super excited!

I am, too! Again! 🙂

I love you, Zeeka! You have mommy’s nose.

Love,

Mommy Ginger
