New Doctor

Well, it was the first visit with my new doctor. He was nice, he has a good sense of humor. Had my gbs test and the blood one for anemia that I cannot remember what it is called because I am in a traffic induced coma. Anyway, I am measuring 2 weeks ahead. He wants to do a pelvic next week and to talk induction around 38 weeks. Holy crap! I am still surprised every time I go that I am having another baby. (who by the way had no name!)

Sounds like a good appt.
We have no name picked out either and sometimes when I look in the mirror I think wow crazy we are actually having a baby again Smile

Congrats on a great appt! I know what you mean about baby coming early... I'm totally freaked out! I'm just 37 weeks and baby is measuring 41 weeks, and I'm already dilated 3 CM!! I keep thinking any day could be the day... I'm ready but not... and even after three deliveries I'm totally nervous!!

YUP! Totally freaked out! I have the craziest rush of OMG right now. Heeeelp! I cannot wrap my brain around the shortness of time here. I almost don't want him to tell me what he finds when he checks me next week. Change or no change.....is one way better? Chaos is about to ensue.

I have definitely reached panic mode myself! It's like I know there's a baby in there but it's still hard to wrap my head around the notion that he's actually going to come out and then I have to be his Mommy! It's so scary, exciting at the same time. I am so glad you liked the new doctor. I know some people might not like it but I enjoy a doctor who has a sense of humor. Mine does and I think it makes things more comfortable. Have you narrowed the names down any at all or are they all still pretty much on the table at this point?

We are pretty much still at Gabriel, Nathaniel (Nate), and I still love Deacon. I am worried Deacon is too different. That our families will hate it. I know it is my choice, but he has to live with it for the rest of his life, I want to say it to them and see their reactions, but I am soooo chicken.

Yes, I am happy he has a sense of humor, when he did the dopplar he told me "Both babies sound great." I thought it was awesome!

If you named him Gabriel would you use the full name all the time or shorten it to Gabe?

We would call him Gabriel, but I am sure people would eventually call him Gabe.

I love funny doctors! My family doc growing up was so funny.

I'm glad you like your new doctor. Did he say you have another u/s to check baby's size?

We are still without a name here too. I imagine we will be deciding either during labor or shortly after but definetly before leaving the hospital. DH is so set on Adam for a boy and I'm so not!

DH loves James. Which is fine, I love it too. I am just worried that even though my kids are okay with it now, eventually it will hit them that the third boy was named after their dad. Which my husband is, too....the third boy and is James named after his father. So it is sort of a horrible tradition if we choose to carry it on.

The boys say they are ok with it now. Do you really think they will stay that way?

Also I like Adam alright. But I love all your other son's names. Does he have a runner up?

He hasn't said he likes anything else. We thought about James too but I have a close cousin named James and I don't really want to use that name. He also still likes Daniel but my sister just named her last son Daniel. That would be weird.
