Good Morning Ladies
Wow this thread has moved so quickly over the weekend!!
Congratulations on the amazing pics of scans that came through - Grebbeci & Gampa a girl and Meshell a boy - yaaay! I think it's such an awful thing to feel so much pressure to have either a boy or a girl. In this day and age seriously it really should all be about the health of the baby. Anyone who is 'putting the pressure on' really need a talking to to put them in perspective. All these babies have been so hard to come by - who cares whether it's a boy or girl - it's a miracle!
I know the feeling of growing out of clothes, especially at work - all good signs that bubs is growing though! Stressing about the weight gain again though - I've now put on 14kg and still 2 weeks off half way!! Arrrggghh!!
Eating when pregnant is a minefield really isn't it. I find it so hard to work out what to eat at work if I don't bring lunch - so I'm making an effort this week to make it!
Loving the name suggestions there are some great ones out there. We are going traditional and baby will be named after my MIL or FIL - so Rose for a girl and Orlando for a boy. I came across Eliana last week (Grebbeci I can't believe you said it) which I love for a middle name for a girl (it means God has answered us) and Matteo as a middle name for a boy (which means Gift from God).
If you are wanting a strong name - you can always look up names by meaning.
Captain Gut is a great one, lol!!!
Also love Lucia (Grebbeci, again we have the same taste in girls names), Grace and Lily. I would definitely name my girl Lily if I had another one called Rose - wouldn't bother me about the bouquet thing.
Can see myself rambling again! Hope you all have a good Monday and good luck with all your scans & appointments this week.
AFM - have been feeling little gas pops and bubbles which I think is baby but haven't felt anything all weekend so now I'm freaking out! Will be 18 weeks tomorrow! Looking forward to our next scan on the 28th!
