We are so excited!!! Poppy gets a sister, and since not once have any of my kids said they hoped for a boy, it was fun to tell them it was what they wanted. Even though we prepared them plenty for the possibility of having a sweet boy, it was still fun to let them know they all guessed and hoped for the gender we’re having. We would have been so happy with either—healthy is what we are going for!
It was fun because the ultrasound tech told us right away, rather than waiting until the end of the ultrasound, so that was nice of him.
My kids are so excited, they already started to write down names. Mr. Zippy said, “We need to think of a name!” So I told them to make a list for us and we’d think about them. Here’s what they wrote in their beds tonight.
Mr. Zippy’s list (I’ll have to get a better picture of his):
They both made sure to put Lucy on there because Carson mentioned that name and I told them I’d always really liked that name. Oh my goodness, they both made Dillon and I laugh hard. Quite the boys, they are. The only name Poppy suggested was Lilla. Goodness I love my kids.
At the ultrasound, they did mention that it appears (to the tech, he didn’t doubt it at all) that I have placenta previa. He showed us that for quite a bit of the time and the placenta is pretty darn low and blocking most, if not all of the way. I know from what I’ve read there is a chance that as I grow it can move up so it might not be blocking the cervix, so hopefully that is the case. I’ve had two c-sections before, so as long as the baby gets here and all is ok, it’s ok with me to have another c-section even when they are no fun. We were thinking of trying a vbac, but only if we could find out if this baby had what Poppy did when she was born. (You can read more about her condition HERE, which was thankfully fully fixed and no complications since). If any of you have had placenta previa, I would love to know what you experienced! Or maybe you were told you might have it but it was better once you were further along.
So that’s our good news! Plus, I just got over the stomach flu and let me tell you, am I ever glad that is over!!! I think I’m half the size now as I was in that picture taken this past Sunday afternoon. Eek! Drinking TONS of fluids to make up for all I’ve lost.
Thanks for stopping by!
