By any other name would smell as sweet

As most of you know, Justin and I have had our baby name picked since September. When I went for my 20 week ultrasound we had a girl name picked out but we were still wavering on a boy name. Since we found out it's a girl we haven't really discussed the name very much, just assuming that we would both still want to use the name originally picked. Well, a couple of weeks ago I started to get a funny feeling about the name. I still liked the name, but it just didn't seem to be the name of our baby (strange, I know). I kept this to myself but it eventually really started to bother me. I told Justin what I was thinking and he had been thinking the same thing! And way back in July we had another name that we both liked, but had decided on name 'A'. So, for the last week every day I've been trying to decide... name 'A' or name 'B'. A couple of days ago Justin had decided on name 'B' as he's decided that name 'A' sounds too..... promiscuous (my word, not his) but I still wasn't convinced. Well, laying in the bath tub last night name 'B' finally just felt right to me. So long story short, the name is changed and we're both happy with it. I guess it's been a good thing that I'm over-due or else we may have made a big naming mistake! So now that I've got it all figured out, this baby can come!!!!

A waiting game....

Since I've had a couple of questions and concerns regarding my due date I thought I would post what the midwives told me today. Unfortunately there is no sign of this baby!! She is measuring slightly larger than they would like, but because of her current position (her head is no longer engaged AT ALL) when they measure my uterus, they really are measuring the entire baby. So... Janet (the midwife) has booked my next appointment for Thurday the 22nd and she is quite certain that I will still be around to make it! On that Thursday they will book me an induction date for the following week. To make the situation a little more complicated the midwives have a "bottleneck" of women waiting to give birth, so if everything is good with my blood pressure and the baby I will be pushed down the list as far as priority in induction dates. Long story short, Janet told me not to be too surprised if I'm still pregnant in March.... but, I feel great and as long as the baby is healthy I really don't care when I go (I say this now...). And I might as well enjoy my last few weeks of solitude!
So... I don't think there will be any complications for driving to the Pro party together, Jannyne, and if I do miraculously go into labour before Saturday we'll get in touch with you. And I am also counting on being able to show up at Taun's on Tuesday night!

Happy Birthday Ryan!

Sorry Val, I meant to do this yesterday! I can't believe how fast they grow up and how much they can change in just 2 years. I told Justin that it was Ryan's 2nd birthday yesterday and he wouldn't believe me! Hope you guys had a good day. See you soon!
