boy or girl?

Well, we had an ultrasound this morning! And I am pleased to announce that we're getting our girl. 2 boys and 2 girls. Perfection. Name choices are Sasha Olivia (in the lead), Ava Grace and Hannah Libby (family name). Feel free to cast your vote!

The main purpose for the ultrasound was to find out why I have been bleeding intermittently for about 7 weeks now. A very small subchorionic bleed was already found a month ago. They focused more on where blood was flowing in my placenta this time. Not much luck. I have an odd shape to my placenta and there is some fluid inside, but not blood. It is low lying, but not over my cervix. The only possibility is an area where the membranes seem to be elevated/separated from the lining of my uterus. The best we can do is keep an eye on it! The baby is getting what it needs to grow well, so no worries right now. Can you say relief?

Now I shop! Lol. I saved just a few worthwhile things from my oldest, but almost 7 years have passed and they have been worn a second time by a cousin. So there just may need to be a supplemental wardrobe. Or two. I will also need to (and I'm quite sad about this part) consider a new color scheme and decor for the nursery. It is my pride and joy with it's cute stenciled checker border and original artwork. Although, blue and green dogs might develop some character girls nowadays struggle to find. Hmmm...
