Three Months To Go?

Its been a while since I've done a pregnancy update. The second trimester has been pretty easy with the exception of a few ailments. As of tomorrow, I will have three months until my due date. If this little girl is anything like my other three, she should be here in about two and a half months. Nice! Still, I try not to think about it too much...or it just DRAGS. As far as her current progress, she should be about two pounds now and about the size of a head of broccoli. Some say she should probably know mine and Alex's voice by now. I'm thinking she'll probably know my kids screams and cries better ;)

She is definitely getting more active. I am feeling her pretty high up. It kinda feels like my rib cage has a rib spreader in it that is slowly prying open. I can't lay on my back anymore, because then I can't breath. I am sleeping pretty well thanks to a little sleeping pill called Unisom. I take about a 1/2 tab every night and I LOVE the effects.

Everything else is like my other pregnancies. Varicose Veins....seriously disgusting. I waddle like a duck. But, the best of all...."happy hormones". No seriously. Around this stage of my pregnancies my hormones seem to be in a somewhat "perfect" balance. Despite some things we've been going through, I still feel the effects of these "happy hormones". Don't get me wrong, I still have those days, and the kids still push my buttons, but I tend to have a little more patience and tolerance.

Our little baby girl still has no name. I am completely STUMPED! We are having the hardest time coming up with names we like. So I'm needing some serious help. Alex likes the name Jayde. My girlfriends say its a "stripper" name and Alex's brother thinks we're black (I am not racist)... but now that won't leave my head and I can't bring myself to name her that. Should I do something with and "ah" at the end? My other girls are Dejah and Mycah.....this was not intentional...but should I stick with that trend? One syllable? Two syllables? More? Common name? Unique name? (not too out there mind you).... I need ideas, so throw me any and all!


  1. You can always do Jayden. :) I say stay away from the "ah" names.
    I've got a jabillion girl names, I'll round them up today and send them to ya!

  2. Macy, Brooklyn, Avery, Addison, Brita, Kate, Grace, Zoe, Lexie. I like so many girl's names it's not even funny.

  3. I like Lexie! I just looked up most popular names of 2009 (although....I'm not a huge fan of popular names....because mine was like the most popular for MY generation....seriously SO many Heathers my age). Here's some in the top 100 that I like:
    6. Olivia (call her "livvy"
    7. Sophie
    13. Natalie
    15. Alexis (you could call her "lexie")
    22. Taylor
    49. Sydney
    88. Paige
    And there's one I like that's not on here:
    Well.....I'm sure you'll pick something completely different....but there's my suggestions!

  4. Anna Jr. haha totally kidding. If our little one was a girl we were going to name her Journi I know everyone hates it. But if our next ones a girl that will probably be it. If your hubby likes the Ja sound then how about Jaycee, not to common but not super unique..I like it I'm callin her Jaycee!;)

  5. If you wanna keep with the "ah" sound, I think Portia is such a pretty name. We have a neighborhood girl named that. Funny her sister is named Jayde (so not a stripper name btw!!) I also like Emory and Audry and Jocelyn. But if you use any of those names you may have the same name as my next girl which is totally cool! ;)

  6. We can't do a Jaydah, because its too close to Dejah. Pretty much just switch the D and J around. I'm liking some of these ideas though...Alex has pretty much vetod all of them. What a punk huh? ;)

  7. I was thinking Jaydah too...

  8. Lylah, Kylah came to mind...

  9. Lylah, Kylah came to mind...

  10. Camillah would be super cute!
