Date : 6th March 2011
Took wife for her normal check up with the Dr Guna. Baby is now 20 weeks old. We took Ryan along to start preparing him for the arrival of his new sibling.
When we asked him earlier whether he wanted another baby sister or baby brother, he had always said 'No! Ryan only!' So, we guessed, having him witness the pregnancy and seeing the baby during the scan will arouse his curiosity and prepare him better.
As usual, Dr Guna apply some gel and started scanning. As I carried him in my arms, he was pretty curious over the entire process. Then Dr Guna switched on the sound for us to hear the baby's heartbeat.
He looked excited (as he is always pretty dramatic) and asked "What noise? What noise?"
We explained that that is the heartbeat of his baby sister/brother and pointed to the images of the baby.
To everybody amazement, he said "Dinosaur!"
I immediately stepped in attempting to correct him. "No. That's NOT dinosaur' That's a baby". Then he correctly himself and said "BABY DINOSAUR!" (Even Dr Guna laughed at this point in time).
After more explanation, he finally said 'Baby 'ngoi ngoi' (sleeping) inside mommy's stomach'.
As Dr Guna was rotating the baby around, he asked "You want to know the gender?"
Of course. Although we are fine with either sex, but we would really love to have a girl this round since we already have Ryan in the house. And he confirmed it...
"It's a GIRL...."
My wife is already planning of the next shopping spree ........!!!!!
