Those pics are wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks ladies!! I've had a very eventful couple of days over here!
Started yesterday - DH came to me and told me that he was feeling like Lilu wasn't the right name for this babe. I've had my moments too, but wouldn't have all out changed it... but he was pretty adament. We had a very long discussion, and we've come up with a new name. It keeps the 'lee' sound, so lilu will still be a nickname, but it's an 's' name (something important to him), and a bit more classy and traditional, so as not to type cast the poor kid before she's even born! Anyway, I think I'm waiting until she's born to announce it, but I think we've made our choice.
Anyway, along with an impromptu name change, I had a blessing ceremony this afternoon from my girls at the yoga studio. It was fantastic - I'm feeling so loved and surrounded my strength... I'm SO much more prepared this time for labour than I ever have been in the past. I really hope she feels it too, and is ready to make her appearance soon!
We did henna on my belly, and it's beautiful... except that to protect it on my way home, we covered it with plastic wrap, thinking that should be a nice barrier and not rub off on my shirt. Well, we were right - except that it ALSO doesn't let teh stuff dry and it turned into this weird sticky paste instead of hardening fully. I'm not sure what that will do to the longevity of the piece, but we'll see. I'll post pics in the morning, once there's better light to capture it.

I'm glad you decided on a name, I can't wait for the announcement. Name choosing is super stressful in this house, especially since we've always had a girls name picked but DH and I have NO common ground with a boys name, this one will probably be born nameless for a while lol.
I hope the henna lasts a while, I love that, I can't wait to see it
oooo I would love to see the hena! That was great that your friends did that.
Wow you look fantastic! Such a neat little bump!
Congrats on choosing a name that you are both happy about, we're another family with name dilemmas and our children are going to be nameless for months at this rate! I must admit that I am trying to work out what you have chosen from your clues - can't wait to hear the announcement!!!

It was over a month before our granddaughter had her name finalized... DSIL even got his friends to vote between two middle names on Facebook! I love her name though so it was worth the wait.
