The wait is over, I went for my big ultrasound a few days ago and it’s a boy !
Mr. Su and I don’t have a preference with the first one, we want to have one of each. So, we’re not so emotional in the hospital room, which probably puzzled the technician. Regardless, we’re super excited and more importantly, baby looks healthy and every organ is well developed. Not without drama though, my doctor pointed out two bright spots during ultrasound. One by the heart and one by the liver. The one by the heart is normally a sign of down syndrome but quite common among Asian having boys. Additionally, my other pre-natal screening is very negative when it comes to down syndrome so the doctor was not concerned
The one by the liver though was very concerning because it could be a sign of infection. So, I did a blood test to confirm and after an excruciating wait of three days, it’s all good. One of the infection suspects by the way is cat. For you out there, thinking about having a baby, do not consider getting a cat to be on a safe side and if you already have a cat, make sure it stays indoor and get your significant other to change the litter box.
Anyway, I thought I share in case such information is useful to other people. Back to sewing, I made this pair of shoes and bibs for our unborn son.
The fabric is Heather Ross’ Little Dogs, which is now hard to find and I should have stocked up.
The bibs is actually a leftover from baby shower gifts that I made for a bunch pregnant girlfriends having baby boys a few years ago. Back then, I made extra two to keep for myself, I guess it is a self-fulfilling prophecy.
