1st visit to gynae

Posted by Dawn at Tuesday, December 12, 2006
Yesterday night was my first visit to the gynae. The clinic is in Bedok Bus interchange there. It is a satellite clinic for East Shore Hospital. I chose East Shore Hospital because it is in the East- easier for people to visit and easier for me to go there as well. It was my colleague who introduced me to this gynae and I have to trust her since she already had 3 kids under this gynae-Dr Heng.

The gynae is quite bubbly and friendly but I guess the only downside is that she has many many patients.Heard she has about 67 patients per month. So, my first visit with her only took 10 mins! She just asked me a series of questions about my family's history medical condition, any drug allergies, my last menstration date and then told me my expected due date. She told me it will be around 4/5 Aug 2007. We asked her a series of questions and she just told me to abstain from liver, sting ray and shark meat. She said I could eat anything...how nice cos I love to eat.hehe

Then she told me to lie down as she put a gel on my tummy to do an ultrasound scan. Thank God the baby can be seen through the scan if not it would be more troublesome and painful to detect the baby which I wont want.

From the scan, the gynae told me that the baby is healthy and even showed me and CT the baby's heart pumping. He/She is only 0.65cm long. Haha..I cannot imagine how small that is! Amazing. Here is the picture of our scan. Heard from my colleague that every month when I go visit the gynae, she would scan for me and give me a picture of the baby. Yay!



Ok, so this is the picture of my baby now during 7 weeks...coming to 8 weeks. Cute? haha...

When we got home, CT was mentioning how amazing a sperm and an egg is enough to create a baby. How simple and yet,complex! So, the whole night, we were just so amazed at seeing God's creation unfolding right before our eyes...

We spent the whole night praying for our baby and thanking God for all that is happening..God is good.
