Okay last night's post on being nervous and having lack of "important" symptoms that reassure you that pregnancy is most likely progressing properly. Yeah, forget what I said. I feel like total crud today. The progesterone is giving me headaches that make me want to scream.
But now I'm feeling ill. I don't want or need to throw up, thank goodness. But I feel a general icky feeling. Maybe it is from the headaches, maybe it is from my sweet little blessing. Or both. Regardless it actually makes me feel better.
I love how people have sweet little nicknames for their unborn babies before they find out the gender. So I want to think up a little name for this one. We had "Pumpkin" for the last one because we found out on Halloween that we were pregnant. Now that we're due near Halloween I was thinking maybe "Our Little Jack-o-Lantern" or something.
Then I thought of Sweet Pea, Cupcake, Peanut, Sweet Potato... Maybe I could call them our little Kernel (like corn... because corn is one of those things you see in October too!) but it's not as cute. There's just so many and I haven't talk to Daniel yet. I'll see what he thinks. But I also LOVE polls so I may put a poll up. Let me know if you have thoughts or ideas, too. Maybe there's something out there that I just haven't thought up yet but would love.
As it stands we're still really set on our names. I told Butterfly that if the baby was boy his name would be Caiden Isaac. She loves to roll the name around in her mouth and says it very clearly. Then I told her if it is a girl her name would be Zoe Beth (with the two dots above the "O"- I forgot the ALT code for that one so if any of y'all know it, let me know!). Butterfly loves the names! Bumble Bee cannot pronounce them at all. I don't think Bumble Bee even knows what we're talking about yet!
I feel strongly these are the names God has given us. When I had Butterfly and Bumble Bee we didn't know what to name them. They were named in the hospital after they were born but were on our "list". I am so glad and relieved to have names chosen already so we can get used to the name early on, before the birth. Wow, getting ahead of myself mentioning birth! Ha ha! I want to enjoy every moment of this time. It feels like it is dragging on but I'm fine with that.
My last pregnancy I had already done some research to figure out some products I'm interested in getting. I have two major purchases: crib and carseat. The crib can actually wait for a long time since we have a bassinet still. But I did research and fell in love with THIS CARSEAT. Except the price went up incredibly since I last looked at it. I just want the carseat, not the stroller. I wonder if they sell it separate? If not I'll just find a different seat but I think this one is gorgeous.
