It’s going to be a BOY!!

It was a rather busy Friday morning. After speaking with my agent at 9am, I hurried to The Medical City to pick up my x-ray films, which I needed to present to my doctor before lunchtime. His clinic ends at 12 noon.


Everything went well until I decided to check out the hospital’s ultrasound procedures. We’ve been planning to have it done this month since this is the time when it is possible to know our baby’s sex. I inquired at the Women’s Health unit at the 5th Floor and found out that they can do the procedure with official results taken within 1 to 2 hours. We needed the results in time for the next day’s clinic appointment to our OB Gyne.


My wife is 4 and a half months pregnant now, and I knew TMC has better facilities so I thought that doing the ultrasound here is best, since the possibility of knowing the gender of the child here is more likely.


I called my wife from her work, and she decided to take her leave in the afternoon so we could proceed with the procedure. We decided to meet in our rented unit in Ortigas before going to TMC.


We did not wait long until we got our turn for the ultrasound. The doctor started the scan and showed us the different body parts of our baby. It was so exciting! She even counted the fingers of both hands and feet, and showed us a more or less picture of his face. He is so cute! This was the very first time for us to see our baby’s face, and he seemed to be smiling at us.


The most important part came when the doctor started checking out his gender. She found the putotoy, and so… it’s going to be a BOY! The doctor checked several times by scanning at different angles, and she was definite and positive by what she saw. It’s definitely Inigo coming for us!!


When we decided to give the name Inigo provisionally, while waiting for a confirmation of his gender, we were still unsure. But we found it difficult to find a female name for a baby girl. Maybe, our intuitive minds were functioning and we felt it was indeed Inigo coming.


I can’t wait till Inigo joins us in this world. I am sure his presence will bring enormous joy to our family. Love you, son!

    wow. congrats to you and your wife. you must be very excited. my first born is a girl and both my husband and i were ecstatic over it coz we both wanted to have a girl. my second child is a boy. these are both answered prayers. my little girl is more closer to her dad while i have the little boy’s attention. even if he is already three i still love the feel of his face next to mine during sleep and i love the feel of his small arms curled around my neck, while dad is very proud as our little girl looks up to him with so much adoration. we both love our little kids very much.

    I am very sure that you will be a good father to your child. Congrats once again.

    i posted a comment on this several days ago and i wonder why it wasn’t posted. anyway, congratulations on this very good news. i know that you have been dreaming for a boy. Iñigo must be very lucky to have you as his father. i too am very excited for your coming baby. My son, my second born is actually very close to me, i love it when we sleep face to face at night or when his short hands curl to my neck. Kids are indeed God’s blessings to parents.

    This is really cute! Fully documented talaga ang life ni Inigo even when he’s still inside the womb. 🙂 Reminds me of my dad’s reaction when he found out that my mom is pregnant with my little bro. He’s the first son, and you know how fathers are with their sons 🙂


  22. June 25, 2011 at 8:03 pm

    ang galing talaga kasi well documented lahat ng events ng buhay mo! ask ko ulit paano ba magka baby boy kasi gustong-gusto na namin ni hubby magkaroon ng baby boy din 🙂
