We had our ultrasound Friday, after some challenges in getting there. No need to bore you with that stuff though.

Baby #4 is another girl!

Now on to the whole task of naming her! DH and I are not in full agreement on a first name, but we have a middle name. The issue is with the way the name is spelled. Our older 3 kids have names with 5 letters, 2 syllables, and slightly different spellings. It just ended up that way with the first two and dh continued it when he picked dd6's name. We like a first name with 4 letters and a slight change makes it the same name with 5 letters. Then I complicated things before we had the u/s and suggested we keep the name a secret. I'm just being impatient and I know I have a couple more months to sort this out, but it's bugging me. On the flip side, I'm so glad my daughter gets a sister!

So I take it you did not find out the gender? I am one of those that wants/needs to know so I can pick up things as I catch them on sale over time and not have to get stuff all at once. I admire the ability others have to remain on the "Green Team". I'm just not one of them.
The sonographer said the baby looks really healthy, good and was very cooperative in getting the pictures taken. I was very relieved to hear that news, as well as my amniotic levels were good, especially since I ended up at the ER a week prior after office hours b/c I was leaking something and praying it was my bladder. Thankfully it was my bladder, but I still worried that it wasn't an accurate diagnosis.

Funny you say that because the tech got two pictures of the baby's face, and both have a very clear outline of her eyeball! LOL
I'll have to scan the picture and post it somewhere to share, but I need to get through this visit with MIL first. The nice thing is, dd6 is getting worn out playing and entertaining them ;)

Yay!! Congratulations!! We had a very difficult time naming our girl too. She actually was nameless for about two hours after her birth. I was blessed by marrying into a family with a 4 syllable, oddly-flowing last name, so it's made the entire naming process frustrating. At least you have the middle name, so that's something! What an exciting time for your family.
