And It's A....


YUP!!!!! It's a girl!!!! I will upload the ultrasound photos later b/c I am back at work! That is just a lil dress we picked up at Old Navy a few weeks ago hanging on the frame in her nursery. Probably will paint the frame another color now...

She waved at us... made sucking movements w/her mouth, had her hand up by her head... We got 2 3D shots... We'll get some more later. She is just darling!

Oh... and by the way...Her name is...


She weighed appox. 9.5 oz.

Heart Rate was 135.

We nailed down her name about 2 weeks ago I think... so it was really funny to see how many ppl suggested Josephine.

As for the winner of the RAK... the first person to suggest JOSEPHINE was

JENNIFER COMPTON so Jennifer, I will be emailing you for your address today!

I do a little something that has some cause for concern...

Posterior Placenta Previa.

My midwife says that it could've been the way Josie was laying... she was face down and very low... but the placenta could move later on as my uterus grows. I will have another ultrasound at 28 weeks to see it's position. If the status is the same... looks like I'll be delivering Josie via C-section. Praying that the placenta shifts w/the growing uterus... but if it doesn't, as long as I deliever Josie and she is happy and healthy, I don't care how to get her outta me. The most important thing to us is that she and I are healthy. So we are ok. I am going to start doing some research on Placenta Previa and educate myself so if you have any links to share or sites, please do. Im a avid visitor of BabyCenter so I will be checking there first.

I also will have another ultrasound in 3 weeks to re-measure Josie's head. She was so low and laying in such a way that it was really hard to get a good measure on it. So we will get some more 3D pics then too!

So that is the latest!

We are just so elated!! Josh was grinning ear to ear. He was hoping it was a girl... He has 2 sisters so he was really hoping for a lil baby girl!

Now to let all this soak in and enjoy it... Be back later w/ultrasound photos!

    Congrats Amber!!!
    How totally exciting for you both!

  18. Congrats..I do love her name : )

  19. Congrats, that is sooo exciting!! I had a baby girl almost 8 months ago and I, too, had placenta previa. I don't have any links for you, but I did rely on BabyCenter quite heavily. My placenta didn't shift at all, so we did end up having a c-section without any complications whatsoever. Please feel free to shoot me an e-mail if you need a little boost every now and again :)

    Hi Amber: My sister, who shares your that must be good luck, had placenta previa and it was very very close but luckily at her ultrasound at 28 weeks, all was moved into place and she is due any day now..hope that helps..and again her name is Amber so that must mean something..!
    Congrats on the girl..cute name!
