We're going to have a BOY!
The gynae is 80% sure that baby's going to be a boy because she saw the "parts". However, she added that baby was lying on its side so it made it a bit difficult to ascertain for sure if baby would be a boy, because the "part" could also have been the umbilical cord.
That's when she switched the mode of the ultrasound to black-and-white, while the blood vessels would be red in colour. And we saw that the "part" was not red, so it couldn't have been the umbilical cord.
So we're pretty sure that baby is going to be a "he" but to be cautious, we'll simply say we're most probably having a baby boy!
This is wayyy cool because I've had a hunch our baby would be a boy cos:-
- I dreamt twice that my first baby would be a boy. This was even before I was married (but was engaged). In my dream, my late Mummy was there with my baby and we were having a meal together. So precious.
- I had fierce hunger pangs in my 1st trimester, which disappeared temporary only to re-appear again recently. I'm a long sleeper and can pretty much sleep through breakfast and sometimes lunch. But recently, I've had to get up to eat! Sometimes at 4am and most of the time earlier than I would have normally woken up.
I seriously get woken up from hunger pangs! And you think, "I'm sure I can sleep them away." But no, they get increasingly stronger that at some point in time, I'm having this sharp pain in my stomach region such that I know that I have to eat to save myself! Can't wait to stuff myself crazy in Singapore!
- In our 10th week scan, gynae already said that she could see something but was legally not allowed to tell us the gender because it was too early.
Anyway, I'm considering paying for a private scan at 24 weeks so that we can have the assurance that baby is really a boy, before we go boy shopping! Any suggestions for boys' names?
