My OB/GYNE told me and my husband that our baby has hydronephrosis so they sent us to see a specialist last week. According to the specialist, instead of the fluid coming out of his uterus, there are some fluid that goes back up in his uterus due to an obstruction and as a result, fluids get stored in his kidneys. They measured the amount of fluid in his kidneys and it ranges from 6-7cm, according to the doctor, we don't have to worry that much as long as the fluid is NOT more than 10cm. So now, I have to see specialist (aside from my OB/GYNE) once a month to monitor the baby's kidneys through ultrasound as there is a tendency that the amount of fluid might get higher (i hope not) or lower. I am glad though that a specialist from Riley's Children Hospital will monitor the baby next month. They say that doctors from Riley's are good so at least I am a bit at ease knowing that the doctor that will monitor my baby is in good hands.
As a mom-to-be, it is sad to hear things like this. I wish that I am the one who is carrying my son's problem as I am old enough to say on what is wrong in me unlike a kid that will just cry and cry and couldn't say what's hurting him :(
My son's heart, brain etc. are all normal and we are thankful about that. The truth is he was so hyper the whole time we were at the specialist that's why the technician was having a hard time taking his ultrasound pics because he moves alot lol! The doctor said that that is a good sign :) My husband and I were happy to see our baby touching his ear and stretch his leg in my belly. Aww! that was so precious to see. It is nice to see on what is the baby doing in my belly hehe.

Last Monday. I had my second ultrasound of our baby boy and I was happy to see him moving around inside my belly. I saw him poking my tummy lol! and it feels so great seeing him covering his face with his hands. It seems like he wants to play peek-a-boo :D As of now, his kicks are getting stronger and stronger everyday but I would rather feel his strong kick than not to feel him kicking at all. I can't wait to hold him in my arms, change his diaper and tickle his belly. And o yeah! I was able to saw his face this time :)

Oh my! I felt my baby's kick today (Aug. 6, 2009, 10PM) I woke up my sleeping husband and let him feel my belly as I wasn't sure at that moment if its the baby kicking hehe I am a first time mommy-to-be so malay ko ba sa feeling ng sipa ng baby hehe As of now, it is easy to feel the baby's kick when I am laying down kaya feeling ko ayaw ko ng tumayo sa bed lol!

This past few days i keep on waking up around 3 AM nuking in the kitchen for something to eat. And mind you, I just don't eat snack but I make meals lol! I make rice and porkchop and sometimes I eat steak. There are lots of changes in me when I get pregnant specially in terms of eating. Before, I use to like putting egg in my ramen noodles, but now that I am pregnant, I can't eat my ramen with egg. I love cheese, but now, I don't like cheesy foods like mac and cheese. Somtimes when I am doing some things, I'll feel all sleepy and I'll end up stopping what I am doing and lay down for awhile. Oh well! pregnancy is weird but it is also fun at the same time knowing that we'll have our baby soon :)
