At approximately 23 weeks, our dragonlady is about 680g. And my gynae confirmed the gender. Because it’s easier to confirm the gender of a boy than a girl, I keep suspecting that baby #2 may not be a girl after all. Oversuspicious – could be a pregnancy symptom!
That’s about all that I found out during our monthly visit to the gynae’s yesterday. I think we were out of the room in 5 minutes. No thanks to my beloved firstborn who freaked out and wailed when he saw me lying down to do the ultrasound scan. This is the second time it has happened. SIGH! In order to prevent a full-scale meltdown, my gynae had to do things chop-chop – scan, everything looked ok and go! I didn’t even get a decent ultrasound scan picture of dragonlady even though we can clearly see a face now.
According to my parents, Thaddeus is being jealous. I don’t really think so since he’s still too young to understand. Or am I underestimating him? It does seem like he’s more clingy to both the husb and myself these days. He wants us to carry him more often and hugs us to sleep. Definitely a regression here.
But it could just be him showing his love for Mommy because he looked very anxious when I had to lie down to do the ultrasound scan. He would be his cheeky smiley self when he sees the gynae but the moment he sees me lying down, he breaks down.
In any case, he’s not going to tag along the next time. So much for us trying to get him involved. I only remembered all the questions I have for my gynae after we left the clinic. Now, I gotta wait for a month! Need to put all these questions down in my phone.
