We are so predictable. :)
The kids were thrilled. Three of them were wanting a girl, and one was wanting a boy, but he assures me he's wanting a girl now. Which is good, because I don't think we can produce boys. :)
And names. There are two we love, one we've loved for a long time and another that is new this time around. We have awhile to decide, and we won't tell the name until the baby's born. Not because it's so grand, but because I like having lots of time to change my mind, and I don't need other peoples' opinions. They feel much less free to share them once the baby is actually there. :)
Anyway we're super excited. I'm having another ultrasound next month to check on a couple of things--my placenta is partially covering my cervix so unless it moves, it's C-Section time. Ugh. (Doctor gave a 60-70% chance that it'll move. Online it said that 90% of partial placenta previas resolve themselves. So let's hope that statistic is right!) Also our baby is taking a little longer to lose some of the developmental cysts (I think I just coined a new technical term!) on its brain (babies can have them up until 24 weeks or so, and I'm about 20 weeks) so the doctor just wants to make sure they go away. The baby looked perfect other than that--which she shouldn't if something were wrong--so the doctor is pretty sure it's fine, but you never know. (Why is nothing ever easy???)
Another daughter! I'm so excited about our little girl! The baby seems so much more "real" now!!!
AND, the obligatory awkward belly-shot I just took of myself five minutes ago. Maybe I should take one tonight before bed--my stomach will be much bigger by then.
