Emily@UK - 二寶的超音波照

二寶的21週超音波照.

 

在台灣隨時去婦產科報到就可以隨時照,照到爽,照到高興,即便根據婦產科醫生說,健保局每個孕婦只肯給付一次超音波而已.
在英國,如果沒有啥問題,整個孕程超音波照頂多三次.
第一次是約 12 週左右,主要為「唐氏症篩檢」;
第二次是約 21 週左右,非常詳細的超音波檢查,以確定胎兒一切無恙,該有的都有了,一切正常.如果發現異樣,才有可能安排額外的超音波檢查;
最後一次就是產前囉,這還不是每個人都有耶,我當初生愛兒的時候就沒有照阿.

第一次的唐氏症篩檢超音波,只有在懷孕的 11-13 週做才有效,可惜上次懷愛兒的時候我人在台灣,因此只在第10週的時候趕在離開英國之前去做了基本檢查.
當我回到台灣,便打電話到大醫院裡去詢問,想說自付也沒關係,照一下總是比較放心.但我的電話一路被從總機小姐,轉到衛教室,轉到婦產科護理長,再轉到婦產科主治醫師,最後轉到主任醫師.
該大醫院的婦產科主任醫師告訴我,這一項技術在台灣尚不普遍,全台只有長庚,台大不出五間醫院有這種儀器.然而,即便有機器,技術員的程度卻遠不及英國這邊成熟,常有誤判.換句話說,他認為照了也是白照,建議我省下這個麻煩.
我陸續又詢問了一些醫生,亦都是類似的評價,考量雙方家族史,我的年齡與健康狀況都不是高危險群,和 Steve 商量後便不再堅持,決定不照了,最後以抽血檢查做篩檢,結果報告也顯示懷有唐氏症兒的機率極低,事實證明愛兒也的確是個健康的女娃.
這一次懷二寶我人都在英國境內,所以有做唐氏症篩檢超音波,結果是機率極低,所以安心啦.
 
第二次叫做「Detailed Scan」,就是詳細的超音波,在懷孕 21-23 週的時候要做的.上次懷愛兒的時候在英國做了這一項,這個星期也懷著二寶去做了,的確是非常詳細阿.
這個時期胎兒該有的各種器官都要一一檢查細看,看心臟的瓣膜和腔室是不是都完好,看腎臟,胃,雙手雙腳.測量頭徑頭圍大小,腳的長度等等,從頭都要仔細檢查到尾就對了.
做完會拿到一份報告,上面標著胎兒的頭圍,大腿骨長度等測量與正常平均值的比較,還有其他文字敘述胎兒的反應等.
當初大姑懷兒子的時候,胎內測量顯示腿比平均值短,姪子至今三歲,還真就腿比較短耶,上半身都穿三歲的衣服,可是褲子得要小一號.

因為我們想知道性別,所以還要看看性器官,懷著愛兒的時候因為她的腳交叉著,女生比較害羞嘛,一度看不到,他們還叫我去外面走一走運動一下,看胎兒會不會改變姿勢,第二次查看結果判斷為「95%是個女孩」.
這一次剛巧碰上醫院換了最新型的機器,這是我看過最清楚的超音波耶,連我們這種外行人也都能一看就能分辨出手腳等!我事先灌了很多水,漲滿了膀胱,加上二寶非常地配合,想看什麼他就讓看什麼,做超音波的小姐直說他真是乖寶寶.
檢查性別的時候,小姐一邊指著螢幕一邊肯定地說:是個帶把的男孩喔,螢幕上還真就清楚地看見胎兒的兩隻腳中間真有東西凸出來耶!

這一胎我的確想要個男孩,一男一女剛剛好,這樣就太完美了,我也就不會自己給自己壓力老想是不是要再生第三個.
如果按照我年輕時候的狂想,我原本是希望第一胎是男孩,第二胎是女孩的,即使順序反了,我依舊是興奮的很,當場留下喜悅的眼淚!
事後想想,我也真的是太誇張了,又不是住在後宮裡,得靠生一個男孩以保下半輩子無憂;公婆和 Steve 也沒有給我壓力,即便得知是男孩之後他們也老實地說是想要男孩,但之前當著我的面他們總是說生男生女都好.
純粹就是我自己想要一個男孩罷了,當願望實現的時候還是很令人欣喜阿!尤其是這種完全要靠天的事,只能謝天啦!
出了醫院我跟 Steve 直說我們好幸運,心想事成耶,他說他原本是想要兩個女孩的...爲他感到遺憾地「喔」兩秒...管他的!我還是超開心!

你也可以跟護士小姐說你不想知道小孩的性別,那麼即便他們知道也不會跟你說,會用「it」來稱呼胎兒,而不是表示性別的「he」或「she」.
我有對朋友他們想知道,但是不想當場知道,而是想和家人們一起在聖誕節的時候得知,所以他們請超音波專員把胎兒的性別寫在一張紙上,再封進一個信封裡,讓他們帶回家,專員也照做囉,很貼心呢!
但聽說也有醫院政策是不告訴父母性別的,所以要看醫院囉.
