I decided to post here, since Diane needs her space in the comments thread....
I hope you don't mind!
I was just going to tell you sorry that you feel so yucky with morning sickness (stupid name since it's all over the day) It should pass soon!
I was glad to read in your earlier post that you are enjoying being pregnant ! You deserve it!
Of course I don't mind! You can post in here all you want. Yeah, the morning sickness is definitely not my best friend! But I know it means the baby's healthy, so that's the part I (try to) keep focusing on. When did your morning sickness go away? I was so sure that morning sickness would be a thing of the past come the second trimester, but I've been reading that some women have morning sickness throughout their pregnancies!! Noooo!! I don't think I can take another 7 months of this!!!
So, I've become a little obsessed about the baby's gender. I spend a lot of time online looking at different websites that "guarantee" you'll know your baby's gender, if only you'll send them a couple of hundred dollars, and some of your blood. Is it bad that I'm actually considering doing this?? I know DH would have an absolute cow if I told him. He's one of those practical, cool-as-a-cucumber, patience is my best virtue kind of people. Well, I'm NOT! I really, really want to know! And I know that these websites are most likely scams, but I still want to send them my money. *Sigh* I know we have a perfectly good, FREE gender ultrasound coming up in 11 weeks, but that just seems like SO far away!! And to think I actually was considering waiting until delivery day to find out the sex! HA! Like I have that kind of willpower - who was I kidding??
On another note, I had a little talk with DH last night. We were both snapping at each other a little yesterday afternoon, and I know for me it was because of pregnancy hormones. And for him, well, it's hard to be nice all the time when someone is trying to bite your head off. I think we can all appreciate that. So I just took some time out when I was feeling a little bit more in my element to tell him what was going on. I told him it's hard for me to explain just how miserable I feel for a lot of the day, and it's such a chore to just get up and get myself a glass of water and some food. I also told him it had nothing to do with him, and how much I appreciate the way he's been taking care of me and doing things for me. I mean, he pretty much does all of the housework, gets me food and water when I'm feeling yucky (which is most of the time), sits with me and talks to me to distract me. He's the best hubby ever! And he does all this without complaint. I felt a lot better having got that out in the open, and he said he understands, and he was sorry for snapping back. I know he can never truly 100% understand what I feel like, but he really does try. And what more could I ask for?
can I reply here? I just wanted to say I had sickness through the whole time. And I would also get sick if I got really upset and got extremely more motion sick than normal. I even threw up at the hopsital before and in the operating room during my c-sec.
So DH and I were discussing names last night, and we FINALLY came up with one girl's and one boy's name we agree on! The boy's name is Lucas Michael and the girl's name is Eva Grace. DH is very adamant that we call the baby boy Luke, because he doesn't like Lucas. But I said Luke is a shortened version of Lucas, so his official name should be Lucas. So we're going to compromise and CALL him Luke, but on the birth certificate it will say Lucas. Phew! Complicated, eh? Not to say that we will stick with these - after all, we have another 7 months to change our minds!
My goodness, my pregnancy hormones are really doing a number on me! I was bawling last night - hitching breath and everything - for about 15 minutes and I couldn't stop! It all started because DH and I were watching our Friends DVD. It was Season 8, the one where Chandler and Monica get married, and that part came up where Chandler holds up the onesie he bought at the hotel gift shop and says, "How can something so small be scary?" Yes, that's what started my crying jag!! DH held me and made me take deep breaths to try and calm me down! Gah, I felt like a huge drama queen, but I also couldn't stop. Thankfully he understands and doesn't think I'm totally nutso!! (Or maybe he does and just hides it really well! )
So I've noticed my cravings are totally changing now. I used to want steak, potatoes and rice ALL the time. No veggies and nothing sweet. Well now, I want sweets all the time, and lots of veggies (but no carrots! Those make me gag!). Weird, huh? Do you think the baby WAS a boy and turned into a girl somehow?
DH came up with another boy name I really like! What do you think about Levi? I really love it! We're thinking Levi James .
That just convinces me that you will have twins (change in cravings) a boy and a girl! you will get to use both names!
The names BTW, are beautiful! I like Luke and Lucas just the same!
We plan to do the same thing with the name: official-Gabriella and daily use... we will call her Gabby.
Twins, eh??? Scary!! I guess we'll find out in 3 days! I think twins would be really neat, except for the never ever sleeping/showering/eating for the next 18 years part!
Gabby is such a cute nickname! Do you think she'll be a talker?
