Francis Dan Riel, Also-Known-As KIKO

More than four years ago
I've never thought
that another baby would
be brought to the world...

Like most expectant mothers,
I already prepared a name for my upcoming baby.
 One name for a boy: Francis Dan Riel, derived from

Francisco - name of my father-in-law
Danilo - name of my father
Ariel - my husband's name

two selections for a girl: Karla Ariesa and Lourina Therese, originated from

Ariel and Theresa - my husband's name and mine
Lourdes and Marina - my mother's name and name of my mother-in-law

Since, we have already a daughter and a son, the baby's gender was no longer an issue to us. But my OB-Gyne recommended a pelvic ultrasound during my fifth moth of pregnancy. The fact that I was having pre-term labor, she would like to know the fetal size, check on the placenta and amniotic fluid. She wanted to determine what caused my abdomen to harden frequently.

THE ULTRASOUND REPORT:

Within a gravid uterus is a single fetal structure, presently in cephalic presentation with biparietal diameter of 6.0 cm, femoral length of 4.5 cm and abdominal circumference of 20.4 cm equivalent to 24 weeks 3 days, 24weeks 3 days and 24 weeks 6 days age of gestation, respectively. Real time scan show active somatic movement and vigorous cardiac pulstations with HR = 134 beat/min. Placenta is posterior, grade l maturity with no evidence of previa. Amniotic fluid is aduquate with AFV = 12 cm. EFW = 773 g.

IMPRESSION:

SINGLE, LIVE, INTRAUTERINE PREGNANCY , PRESENTLY CEPHALIC WOTH COMPOSITE AOG OF 24 WEEKS 4 DAYS BY BPD, FL AND AC. POSTERIOR PLACENTA, GRADE I
NORMOHYDRAMNIOS.
MALE FETUS.

Every worry faded away
when I hold him in my arms

Happiness is beyond compare
knowing my pains caused him no harm.
