I know it's a little weird to just be "getting excited" at 32 weeks pregnant, but we just finally decided on a name for sure, and it suddenly made it so much easier to picture who's coming and start to really feel connected to her! I knew it was bugging me that we didn't have a for-sure name yet, but I didn't realize how much until it was over! DH and I had a date night on Saturday while DD hung out with her grandma and cousins, and finally had a chance to really hash it out without little ears around (we don't want DD to know the name because she is the worst secret keeper in the entire world and we like to keep our name under wraps until the birth, both to discourage negative opinions and give us something fun to announce)
But we both decided we love it--it was a runner up that grew on us over time--and now I am suddenly feeling impatient to meet this little person! Not too much longer now...eee!
That is GREAT! I know that I felt connect much more to baby once we had her name picked out. I think that is why it bothered me so much at our 20 week appt. when we couldn't see the parts! I NEEDED to know what we were having in order for us to pick a name, so I could start talking to the little bean and feeling connected to her. So happy you are starting to feel connected to baby and EXCITED TOO!

I wish we had a name! We actually have been discussing it with the kids even though they might spill the beans. I like letting them have some input. DS3 (not a big talker) has one name he loves to repeat and giggle at. It's swaying me towards that one. DH has made no comment so far on any of them, despite my prodding.
I am getting pretty excited. It comes in waves. Usually it's overwhelmed by all the things which are coming first. DS1 is starting kindergarten and DS3 is starting preschool this fall. Yikes! But now and then I remember about baby.

Oh I am getting SO excited for you guys!!! I love seeing the tickers roll by and seeing how close you all are!
Hi, Susan! Look at you--almost 2nd tri! So happy to see that!!!
It's funny how universal the pregnancy experience is in many ways and yet so different. This girl and her movements and positions are much different than her sister's were (so maybe no rib footsie this time?) One can hope...
Yay glad you found a name.
Love the pillow case comment too. I had one of those moments today (ow, and right now) and it makes me laugh.
I also love that you've found a name that you both like too. That's great.
