Dot Update - Congenital Anomaly Scan

Sunday, October 19, 2008

We went to my OB's clinic on Wednesday for the congenital anomaly scan. Although my OB, Doc Alfiler was there, it was Doc Pineda who did the scan. We were second in line so we had to wait for an hour or so. It didn't matter because we enjoyed checking out the new clinic's spunky look! :) The main color scheme is green (wow!), so cool to the eyes and I'm liking the over-all effect. Doc A. did a great job designing with the help of her architect. Her office is in lavender (yay, girly!) and the new pedia office (her husband's) is in yellow :) Ane also helped in setting up the AV system. She's still fixing the pictures of the babies she delivered and she will lay it out on the waiting area walls. She also plans to buy a digital frame to showcase the babies pictures :) Next time we just might be able to shoot some pictures, hehe.

Whoa, that's a long introduction to a post, LOL! On the scan...

Dot has grown bigger...from my last check-up when the baby is mid-average to above average :) Dot now weighs 688 grams and the heart is beating normally. I've gained about 13lbs from the time I learned of the pregnancy, so I'm right on track.

We're waiting for the official results but we were told there's nothing to worry about because everything is normal. The head is normal-sized and has no signs of hydrochepalus. Nose has a bridge. Distance of eyes from each other, normal. Kidneys are okay. Heart beating normally. Breathing is normal, the diaphragm working perfectly. Spine has no signs of scoliosis. No cleft on both the lips and palate. Fingers are complete and Dot can close fists. There are ten toes. Lookie at the right foot scan! :D (I realized I need to clean our scanner LOL!). Dot is still in breach position but moves around a lot anyway, so no worries. There are no bumps on the neck, and the cord isn't twisted around it.

Lastly, we know the gender but I'm not announcing yet in this blog :p
