Just left my dr appt. Looks like we are having another girl. She was a mover and a kicker so it was hard to pin her down. But at least I know how to handle them girls with 3 under my wings already. I did get to see a precious upclose of her face when the tech switched it over to 4D. We are blessed! p.s. we have no idea on names yet.

Congrats!!! My hubby and I had such a hard time picking a girls name for #3. My older daughter was just crazy over this one name. So that is what we ended up naming her. We said, well if she does not like her name someday we will just blame it on daughter #1. Lol!! She does not think it is funny Lol!
