Baby's First Heart Beat

Last Wednesday, Hubby and I went back to World Citi for our scheduled lab tests. We got there before 10AM and proceeded to the OR for my transvaginal ultrasound.

The nurse gave me a green gown and slippers to use and we went to the labor room so I can take a pee before going to the IE room. She asked me to lie down on the bed and wait for the doctor. The doctors came and setup the machine and went out. I waited for 30 minutes.. an hour.. 2 hours.. sheez.. ang tagal..

During the wait, the doctors and nurses were very apologetic for the delay. They said that there were too many patients. I was the first in the line and there are 5 more women waiting outside for their turns.

A doctor came in and introduced herself as Dr. Calo. She inserted in my vagina the ultrasound tool. It hurt at first but I was more interested in what she's seeing in the monitor. She tilted the monitor to my view and asked me, "Nakikita mo ba yung pumipintig na yan?" I said yes. She continued, "Yan ang heart nya. May heartbeat na sya." WOW. I am witnessing for the firt time my baby's heartbeat. Super COOL...

After my ultrasound, I met my husband at the OR door (as he had been waiting for more than 2 hours at the waiting area) and we went down to the laboratory. I submitted my urine specimen and while my blood was taken out, Honey went to Ministop to buy me food.

Tiring, hurtful but amazing experience. Soon-to-be-mom and Soon-to-be-dad are very happy.
