So Janice has reached her 23 weeks, and there I am again at the Gynaecology department of Prince Court Medical Centre in Ampang for her monthly checkup. It's always a visit we look forward to, as it gives us a chance to see the progress of the baby via the ultrasound scan.
Often termed together, obstetric is a surgical speciality that involves pregnancy and childbirth while gynaecology is a medical discipline that focuses on women's reproductive system. At least that's what I found from their website here. (http://www.princecourt.com/obstetrics-and-gynaecology.php)
Reaching rather early this morning, we always set our doctor's appointment as early in the morning as possible on a weekend to avoid the crowd. You can't imagine how many pregnant ladies there are nowadays. Late a bit and you have to wait for hours even though there was already an appointment beforehand.
The thing is, most likely the wife won't be giving birth here in Prince Court as we would rather have our child born in Penang, our hometown. We have not decided on the hospital there yet as of now. As for now, we will still be seeking consultation and checkups from the gynaecologist in Prince Court throughout the pregnancy.
