BABY UPDATE 3: Our little bean
I know it’s still too early to be excited (I’m only 2 months on the way), but you can’t blame a first-time mom for being ecstatic when she sees her child for the first time. And as I write this, I still can’t believe that there’s another heart that beats inside me, other than my own. When the sonologist showed a tiny, blurred, bean-like “object” in my uterus, I saw something in it that seems to be throbbing. She smiled and said “There’s our baby!”, and told me that the “blurred bean” is my baby with his/her fully-functional heart, then she immediately turned up the volume of the speakers. When I heard the “drumming sound” (yeah, that fast! 150 beats per minute) that’s when I felt something that completely overwhelmed me. It’s a feeling that no one else could understand, other than women who have been blessed with their own child. I’m grateful for being given the chance to experience this miracle.
Ok, maybe it’s the pregnancy hormones kicking in (haha), I’m starting to get emotional and all, but yes, “I am happy” is definitely an understatement! It’s been 2 weeks of paranoia and emotional stress. I never stopped thinking about my baby since my 1st ultrasound, in which no sign of a baby was seen. There was just a small sac in the uterus that tells “something” must be in there. This 2nd attempt to see him/her made all my fears go away. I thank God for setting me free from my anxiety (I know it’s bad to worry too much, but I can’t help it).
Anyway, I had my 2nd TransV ultrasound at “In My Womb” @ Megamall. Highly recommended — faaarr better than my 1st TransV!
