My parents had planned on my nickname being "Fran" or "Prim" (my middle name)
When I was born my brother had a bit of a lisp so used to call me Fransheka (sounds like FRAN-SHEK-A) skipping the middle S.

21 years later everyone in my family (and quite a few friends) calls me Sheka (Shek-a.. e like the first e in Elephant) it's almost as much "my name" as my actual full name.

Sh*t happens. Nicknames happen naturally.. I wouldn't worry about them.

Yeah not kid related but Bernard came to us and we called him 'Bernie' for about a week until we realized that totally didn't work for him.

My sister Emily gets called Iz all the time. No idea where that came from. No one knows.

Good! Really good! But super anxious to meet her. I feel like I should be feeling crappier at this point but no serious complaints. She did flip sides which is more uncomfortable for some reason, and sleeping is hard sometimes because her feet get all up in my ribs but overall, I'm just really eager to meet her. I can't believe we are already so close to her due date even though it feels like time is crawling. lol

Barbara, you look great! You're hot on my heels!
