I’ve always wanted a baby boy. Don’t get me wrong. I’m very happy with my two girls, Zoe and Ziya. They have always been my pride and joy ever since I found out I was pregnant with them. They continue to amaze me even now especially when people comment on how well-behaved, talented and smart they are. I am no perfect mother but they both make me feel I’ve done something good in my life just by being who they are. I should be contented with that, right? Nevertheless, I have always still longed for a baby boy.
I had a plan. I’d have all the babies I wanted to have by the time I’m 30 years old then I’ll stop after that. I didn’t want to have babies anymore after the age of 30 because I was afraid of the possible difficulties and complications, not to mention the fact that I wanted to retire at the age of 45. But of course, life happens when you’re busy making plans. How was I to know that after my separation with my then-hubby at the age of 29, that I’d meet Kai? And how was I to know that I’d fall in love with him and commit again to a lifelong commitment? Needless to say, meeting Kai changed my life….and my plans of never conceiving again after 30. So, here I am at the age of 31, almost 7 months pregnant with my 3rd child and Kai’s first. And nothing could make me happier.
Ever since I found out I was pregnant with this baby, I was head over heels in love with it already. I knew that the situation wasn’t at all perfect or ideal, but I didn’t care. What matters is that God gave me another opportunity to bring life to this world. What matters is that through me, Kai would have one of his dreams come true, have a child of his own. People kept asking if it was a boy or a girl but since we couldn’t get our 3D/4D ultrasound until my 7th month, we couldn’t give an answer. But most people said they wish for a boy since I already have two girls. Honestly, I didn’t really care about the gender. The most important thing for me was that the baby be happy, normal and safe. But I guess, God also wanted to make one of my dreams come true.
So, after months of waiting, we finally had our ultrasound done last Saturday at OGUSCA at the Festival Mall. Luckily, they had a promo until the end of December, which discounted the original package price to only Php 3,580. The package already consists of a 20 to 30 minute session, a CD of all the 3D photos and 4D videos as well as two photo printouts and the ultrasound report. If you think about it, it’s pretty pricey but it actually costs less than the packages in other ultrasound clinics. Plus, the experience is really worth it. For more info on OGUSCA’s services, visit their clinic at L3, Wellness Lane, Toll Wing, Festival Supermall, Alabang or call 809-8045. You can also visit their website at http://www.ogusca.com.
I was with Kai and the kids when we got our ultrasound and it was super fun to see the baby’s face, arms and legs. Of course, one of the main reasons we got the ultrasound was to find out the gender but unfortunately at first, our baby didn’t want to show it. The baby’s knees were bent with legs crossed making it impossible to see down there. So, the sonologist had me walk around first and since it was lunch time already by then, I ate first. Luckily, after that, the baby changed its position and we were finally able to determine that it was a BOY!!!!
You cannot imagine how I feel right now knowing that my dream come true is right inside of me. No matter how much Kai worries that this baby will be as “makulit”as he was when he was a child, I know that we’ll be happy with him whatever his personality turns out to be. Looking at his ultrasound photos, I can’t help but feel more bonded with my little man. After months of struggling what to name a baby boy (because it was hard to find boy names that start with Z), we finally decided to name him Zeth Parker or Ziggy for short. 😀

If I was impatient waiting for this ultrasound, I am more impatient now to meet my Ziggy and have him snuggle in my arms. Three long months to go! Can’t wait, can’t wait!
