    The party went really well. Kevin and his friends had a blast. We got a new camera recently, so as soon as I figure out how to get the pictures onto the computer (which I really need to do before the baby is born!) I'll post some. It was also a lot of fun having my family here, even for such a short amount of time. But it's nice to know that my mom's coming back in just 11 days and everyone else will be coming back to visit after the baby's born.

    I've been having lots of BH contractions lately. I never had them at all in my first pregnancy, so this has been really strange for me. I get them almost every night. Last night was crazy; I was getting one about every 10 minutes for an hour! Maybe the increasing BH's mean that this LO will make an early entrance!

    Speaking of "this LO," I am so frustrated with the name situation! DH and I sort of agreed on "Katrina," but I keep having doubts. "Katrina" wasn't at the top of either of our lists, but it's the only name that we both agree on at all. I really prefer the name "Kayla," and have unfortunately gotten kind of attached to it already, but DH doesn't like it. At first I was worried about using the name "Katrina" because of the hurricane. I've mostly gotten over that, but still every time I hear DH refer to the baby as "Katrina" it just sounds wrong to me, and I don't really know why. I'm planning to bring a list of other posible names to the hospital and I guess we can decide for certain after she's born. I'm sure DH will hate all the other names on the list, though. I guess I'm lucky that I even got him to agree to Katrina because we seem to have completely opposite taste in names. All of the names he suggested were either too common and plain or too weird for me (Diane, Susan, Helen, Anastasia, Augusta, Amelie). I absolutely knew that DS would be Kevin long before he was born, so not being sure about this baby's name is really stressing me out!

    glad the party went well. Hopefully DH and you can come up with something, even if it is after she arrives. Sometimes I'm not a 100% on our names either, but DH is. As I told him it's not final till we put it on the registration form

    BTW I really like Kayla too.

    I'm really not a fan of naming babies before they're born, so being unsettled on a name at this point wouldn't bother me in the least. We had a list of about three first names and three middle names, but we still didn't name Tiven for two days! I don't think Ginger Baby will be nameless quite that long, but who knows.

    And when all else fails and parents can't agree on a baby's name, I wholeheartedly believe that mom has the right to decide on the first name, and dad can pick the middle name. If he balks, tell him that when he goes through ten months of pregnancy & labor & delivery, then he gets the first name naming rights. Of course, if he chooses Esmerelda or Gertrude for a middle name, you have to live with it, but at least you'd be calling baby what feels right to you. At this point, you know her best!

    Glad the party went well! I'm sure a name will come, we've never named a babe before birth

    If only I could get DH to see it that way too! But I don't think that would go over too well with him. If the name "Katrina" still doesn't feel right after the baby's born, I'll just tell him so (again) and I'll hopefully be able to convince him to choose one of my top two names: Kayla or Karina, in which case, the baby will end up being Karina because he's already told me that he likes it a little better than Kayla, which he basically hates.

    I'm a little nervous about attempting the laundry today. The last time I washed a load, the machine kept stopping and giving me an error message, and I kept having to go in and restart it. Getting through the entire wash cycle took about twice as long as usual, and I was getting incredibly frustrated. Then on Sunday morning, the machine turned itself on and started beeping like crazy and flashing random error messages. It even started filling with water all by itself for no reason! I think my washing machine is possessed! I called yesterday to have someone come fix it. The good news is that there's a recall on our washing machine, so we'll get it fixed for free; the bad news is that they can't come fix it until July 3rd! I can't imagine sitting at the laundromat with Kevin for 2 hours, and actually, I don't even have a clue where the nearest laundromat is. So I guess I'll have to take my chances with the possessed machine and see what happens. It's been unplugged since Sunday (that was the only way to get the beeping to stop), and I'm a little worried about what the machine will do when I plug it back in. Hopefully I can get it through a complete wash cycle and won't be stuck halfway through with wet soapy clothes!

    I'm 37 weeks today -- officially full term! I'm not expecting anything to happen for at least 2 more weeks, but it is exciting to think that 3 weeks from now my baby will probably be here (and I'll finally know her name)!

    Yay for being full term!

    That bites they can't get out to fix your washer until the 3rd!! I hope your laundromat trip goes by uneventfully.

    And, I love the name Karina...I think its very pretty!

    We can't agree on a name either. DH pretty much vetos any suggestions I make, but he doesn't contribute to the name pool, either. It was the same way with our first two also, and they didn't leave the hospital as "Baby Girl" or "Baby Boy".

    Sorry about your washer - hopefully the baby doesn't come before they can fix it! That would be hard to have no washer with a new baby.

    Happy 37 weeks!!!! Isn't it a huge relief to make it past that milestone? Now I find myself getting impatient. LIke you, I've been having increased BH contrax, whereas I had close to none with Jack. So I keep thinking LO is going to come soon ... but maybe that's wishful thinking on my part.

    I like both Kayla and Karina. GL deciding on a name w/DH. Also, I do hope your washer gets fixed before the baby arrives!!!

    Gah, I can't imagine how frusterateing that must be with the washer! Good luck with the name, when you see her you'll know what fits.
