There wasn’t any baby update post since my last ultrasound in December, and since I got my new ultrasound just yesterday, I thought it was time for an update =D
This around wasn’t as painful as the previous ultrasound, thank god, but still uncomfortable because my belly and groin have been hurting lately, but hey nothing the poor girl can do about it.
We spent about an hour in the room because the girl was in training and someone else was supervising her, and the whole time the baby’s position was problematic. And once again wouldn’t show us his/her sex! I was really disappointed by then, but after waiting another 30min for the radiologist to come, baby –finally- opened her legs for 2 sec and allowed us a glimpse.
Yes, it’s official, it’s a girl! *squeee*
You can see her eyes and nose on the 1st shot, then her nose and lips on the 2nd and her profile on the third.
The technician told us all babies this age have Angelina Jolie lips, so she should change a bit ^^
Hubby and I already had a girl’s name in mind, but we are still debating on how to spell it lol
My choices: Lily-Ann or Liliane, his choices: Lilyanne or Lily-Anne. I’ll let you know when we settle the debate LOL
At the last U/S they said there might be a problem with her kidney, and turns out everything is fine now :) Unfortunately, it wasn’t all good news. Our baby girl is presenting herself feet/seat first as we speak, and I’m at 32 weeks. I have a really small belly for being this far into my pregnancy and I’m scared Lily might not have enough room to flip upside-down. I know some babies flip in the last week of pregnancy so I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
If you’ve had baby before, when did yours turn over? Did you have any tricks I could try at home to help her flip? I’m meeting my doctor tomorrow, so hopefully she’ll have some advice for me.
Now, I also had my baby shower last Saturday and I thought I’d show you the gifts I received, and a glimpse of what the baby’s rooms looks like so far. There’s no shot of the entire room, because it used to be our office and it’s still a mess.
First, here's my family and friends who were able to come ^^
My friends are on the left, followed by my dad, mom, uncle, my sister & her boyfriend.
My mom built a diaper cake with toys, bottles, and a whole lot of useful stuff in it. Here’s a picture of it, and my reaction when I saw it ^^
My parents already gave me tons of stuff, it’s insane and at the shower they gave me more items still.
Including diapers, wet cloths, soap & baby cream and this super cute snuggle for the car seat.
My sister & her bf offered me a anti-odor trash bin for the used diapers, I’m sure I’ll find it super handy!
My friends offered me a common gift, which included:
The giraffe is the gift, but the bureau is part of Lily’s room
I have a small apartment, but monitor is always handy and baby’s first book!
This is one of the gift bags I received and it’s so cute I’m thinking of framing it for the baby’s room!
Now onto the baby’s room!
Here’s the crib and overcoat
This overcoat will be used in the play-park:
And last is the chair I’ll use for breast-feeding. As you can see, someone already established residency there…
I already had tons of baby cloths, but they are all for boys as we initially were told our baby was a boy, so I’m hoping some relatives have baby girls cloths they’ll want to get rid of lol I’ll be able to use some stuff I already have but there’s so much blue in the lot LOL.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the update ^^
