Glucose Test and Another Ultrasound
My experience with quest diagnostic this time was bad. Not only did I have to force my self to finish a not so good drink till the last drop within 5 minutes, the phlebotomist had a hard time finding a vein! She looked for about five minutes all together on both arms and finally settled on a vein that ended up being too small (in my opinion). I was only able to fill about 1/3 of the vial with my blood which took a good 2 minutes. This is what happened to my arm after about 3 hours. Another bad blood draw added to my list!
Here are some ultrasound photos of the baby.

Beach Time before summer is over!
Eulla was so excited that she woke up at 6:30am to prepare for the trip to Malibu. We we ready by 7:15am. We picked up my parents, Ate and my two nephew at Sylmar and ended up leaving around 8am. Mom was cooking Arroz Caldo. We were lucky because the forecast showed some overcast and we did not want the sun to be striking hot while we sat and played at the beach.

4th Check Up & Ultrasound
Everything sounds well Dr. Reyes informed us. She said that my AFP test result were all normal. She also informed us that after my ultrasound today, if the baby's gender is not verified, she will confirm it herself in week 28 of my pregnancy.
The three of us practically ran to the parking lot to make it to the next block for the ultrasound. Eumir & Eulla dropped me off at the front of the building while they parked then followed. We made it on time. We still ended up waiting 15 minutes before my name was called. As usual, all three of us went for the appointment. We were all excited to see how big the baby as gotten since we last saw him/her on the monitor.
I probably was on the bed for 15 minutes while the technician measured and took pictures of the baby. After that, all she can say was that the baby's bottom was turned and that we can not be certain what the gender of the baby was.
I guess we have to wait again!

We stayed there for about two hours and had our lunch. Then we went to the Northridge mall to get a few more maternity outfits. My belly is getting bigger and I no longer like the maternity clothes that I had when I was pregnant with Eulla and I sent most of them to the Philippines. Eulla was such a trooper that after I bought a few outfits, we went to Sweet Factory. I forgot to take pictures because once we got there, Eulla was running around scooping all the candies she can. I had her choose what candies she wanted. They were going by the pound.
Finally, the Honda Service Center called and said that the Civic was ready for pick up. That meant, it was time to leave the mall. We had the Civic's oil changed and some minor details done.

Eulla loves to dress up. She loves to appreciate pretty clothes and as Eulla would say it, wow, it is peety with no R. She also likes to get her nails done. She loves going to the mall. Eumir always gets her going by telling her that she has to get ready because we are going to the mall. Right away, you would see her eyes glow and start to get ready even if it means getting up from a nap. She loves carrying a purse. She feels like her outfit is not complete without her bag.
What is weird is that she's a girly girl but likes to play with some boy toys especially transformers and cars. I guess it is cause she grew up around little boys instead of little girls (all her cousins here in the States are boys!). Lately, she is asking me to buy her a Barbie doll when she sees a commercial so we'll just have to see how long it takes till she gets sick of the toy.
Eulla is 29lbs now. She wears a size 7-8 in shoes and size 3 in dresses. Her hair is growing fairly quickly now and I can tie it in a pony tail. She still takes a two hour nap in the afternoon. Eulla kisses my belly every night and says good night to the baby.
Eulla is growing so fast. Eumir and I are savoring each moment.
