Dr Liew post on the dangers of ultrasound got me a little worried. According to some studies, it might increase tissue temperature. I mean, I have always been wary of technology. How do we know that the things we use to ease our lives will not ease us of our lives altogether?
It's no secret; I like that we have ultrasound. It give me peace of mind when I can see what's happening in the womb. I get reassurance when I see Baby turning and tossing about, when I see his little heart beat. It also helps that ultrasound can detect any anomalies inside Mae's womb - like a fibriod or a cyst. But now, I'm beginning to wonder if my own assurance and peace of mind is worth risking Baby's butt! I want Baby to arrive good and healthy, not extra hot and crispy!
Perhaps I should tell our gynecologist to ease up a little on the ultrasound. Keep it short and simple, or else! See? It's effecting me already. What if on our next visit, I see the gyne pick up the scanner and my brain short circuits and I pummel the daylights out of that poor woman? Hehhe. That'll be a sight to behold! "G'wan doc, make my day. Reach for that scanner whyduncha!"
Go visit Dr. Liew if you haven't already. I suspect he's one of those wild-eyed, mad-scientist types. Makes me wish he were my doctor. Thank, Gina for that link.
