Naming Nuances

This is my hubby's first baby, my third. He is thrilled, obviously, to finally have his own. If it's a boy, it will be named after him, Francisco Ramiro Rodriguez III... the baby being the fourth. However, if it's a girl (my first girl), he wants to name it something I abhor: Adrestia Patience Rodriguez. Ugh!


I have been under alot of stress the past week. My brother moved in with us because my parents dcided that they can't deal with him any more. He has been causing stress for my husband who currently got laid off. It's all dumb to me...

My husband doesn't like the fact that my brother isn't like his sister was when she was living with us... she stayed to her self and didn't want to hang out. My brother is the exact opposite he is a social bee... he needs to be doing something constantly...

"yes hunny, I do love you even though you think you're a whale."

I have never been the skinniest girl on the block - I will never be the 90 pounds like my cousin is (AFTER TWO CHILDREN), or like the anorexic bimbo that graces the cover of US WEEKLY - and because of this, I do admit to having some body issues.

My fiance knows about these little 'issues' and although some times teases me about them, loves me unconditionally and supports me and my little neurosis and I do mean ALL of them. *sigh*

There is a chance that I am pregnant. which is fantastic because I've wanted to be a mother since - wow, as long as I can remember.

Adding Another tear to the page

My period is not quite two weeks late.

my fiancee and I are CONVINCED I am pregnant. So he wanted me to get a pregnancy test because "I can't wait any longer' as he kisses my stomach and rubs if there is a baby already in there.

So I grab my fiancee, and my MALE roommate and we trek down in the Toronto snow storm to the closest pharmacy and muse and joke about the 6 different choices and 'the most advanced technology you'll ever pee on'

So with the 'most advanced technology I'll ever pee on' in my hand I walk into the bathroom, do what I have to do and wait.
