24 Weeks

I still get very emotional whenever I think about my pregnancy (thank God for a healthy one!), still very grateful that I did get pregnant at the right age and at the right time. To be honest, I didn’t imagine myself infanticipating. I even had this weird thought before that I was infertile and wouldn’t experience this miracle at all. But fate proved me wrong.

I know…I need a better belly picture, but this will have to do for now! 😛

Today, my pregnant belly marks its 24 weeks. Only 16 weeks to go and I’ll be a full-pledged mom, in the truest sense of the word. I want to cry (a good cry!) just thinking about it.

Prenatal Visit

We asked the doctor’s opinion as to when the best time would be to get a scan to find out the gender of our baby. She recommended getting one when I’m at 24 weeks already, that would be at least two months from now. We’re very excited to know if we’re having a boy or a girl. If my instincts are right, we’re having a boy. Oh, I wish! I wish!
