We were really excited to see Baby J once again in an ultra sound scan today, after 4 whole weeks!
Took my weight and I finally gained 1.1 kg from my last visit 1 month ago. Dr Tan actually advised me that there’s no target weight to achieve for pregnant mothers. In fact, trying to achieve set weights may result in excess weight that’s hard to lose after pregnancy. Like in my case, the weight gain is small but baby has been growing steadily and healthily! So that’s good news for me!
I also asked Dr if it’s normal to experience the occasional dull and even sometimes sharp pains in my stomach. He said that it was normal and should be of no concern at this point cos it’s the baby and uterus growing. PHEW!
So, here’s the picture of the scan of Baby J. It really brought tears of joy to see him/her again!!!
It’s amazing how baby has doubled in size in the last 4 weeks! He/she is now 10 cm long and weighs about 40grams! Size of head, tummy and the heartbeat are all very normal. :) Jared said baby seems to have grown too big and the amniotic sac aka his/her bedroom now is getting too small for him/her! If you can see, the full black areas is the amniotic sac. So it seems I really got to ‘upgrade’ his/her room quickly!
Dr then commented that baby is enjoying the ‘view in the sky’ at the time of the scan. HAHAHA!
Last of all, ending with this picture of Baby J waving goodbye to all… :)
