alhamdulillah.i’m done reading and preparing for next week presentation…its been 4 days of torturing dealing with journals on discourse analysis and pragmatics- reading and discarding them once i can’t really comprehend the article..then started searching for a new one for replacement…i followed dr richard’s advice….”if u do not understand the articles,u simply discard them”…SIGH….i wasted many innocent papers and expensive inks…DOUBLE SIGH…for the time being, i’m down with 5 more assignments- 2 article review,1 term paper,1 course design and 1 group project..TRIPLE SIGH…
on a different note,my other half told me that my next appointment (A MAJOR ONE) next week has been proposed to an earlier date…I was sooo against the idea since i need to undergo the check up alone since my sweet companion is gonna be away to TRG for a 4-day-course…I do not mind having to go for the check up later as long as he’s with me…after all,its not a regular check up..its ANOMALY SCAN…alhamdulillah,just now hubby called me and said that it is now agreed that I am gonna go through the scan TODAY INSTEAD…!!!!!!!YEAY…i am so nervous and agitate at this moment…takut ok…i pray hard to GOD that everything is gonna be just fine for our babay..wahtever it is we both love u so much we cant even tell…we also gonna find out the gender of our first baby today..DOUBLE YAEY…
and a little info on what is ANOMALY SCAN is all about..(retrievd from www.babycenter.co.uk)
Most women are offered a detailed scan at about 20 weeks to check that their baby is developing normally. This is usually called the anomaly scan or mid-pregnancy ultrasound scan .
This scan is carried out in order to look for any abnormalities in the baby’s structural development and growth, and to check the position of the placenta.
Seeing your baby on a screen is a very exciting and emotional time. Your partner and your other children will be welcomed by most hospitals to share the experience with you. Many couples want to know the sex of their baby and have some photos. It’s important to remember, though, that this scan’s main purpose is to look for abnormalities.
What will I be able to see?
Most hospitals allow you to watch the scan as it is being performed. If you haven’t already had a scan in this pregnancy, the sonographer will check that there is only one baby, and confirm your due date. She will point out the heartbeat and parts of the baby like the face and hands, before looking in detail at your baby. At this point, some sonographers will turn the screen away for the rest of the scan and show you views again at the end. The scan takes about 15-20 minutes.
