We have lists for boy and girl names but only a few on each. Girl names are much harder for me. I can't see myself deciding fully until I meet her, so nothing is set in stone yet!

We tossed around names for pretty much my entire pregnancy. We locked in on a girl's name almost instantly, but boy's names proved to be harder decide. We narrowed it down to two first names and two middle names, though we couldn't decide how to match them.

It wasn't until we were in the delivery room that we finally came to a decision. It was actually kind of cool. We had talked a little about it during labor, but the moment after our boy was born, Jon and I looked at each other and said the same full name. LOL

There is more than one type of beco. Are you talking about the Gemini or the Buttlerfly2? I've only tried the Butterfly and the Ergo. Here is the biggest difference I've noticed.

The Beco is taller but a narrower base. It can only front and back carry. The ergo is short, with a wider bottom. Not very comfortable for kids who are leaners. It can do a hip carry but from my experience it is SUPER uncomfortable. The beco butterfly is also easier/comfier for a newborn vs the ergo. The ergo's infant insert is bulky and awkward.

I liked both carriers but hands down they are really at their peek comfort level from 6 months to a year. Before six months I find mei tais/wraps/ring slings more comfy and after a year I needed to size up to a more toddler worthy SSC. However, my son is massive so a smaller kid would fit them better for longer.

I have massive kinderpack love for my larger kid.


As for naming my sons I didnt decide on names for either of them till they were both here. I didnt even think of the name Blake till he was already born. Briggs had his name suggested when I was first pregnant but it wasnt official till he was 3 weeks old.

AND YOU LOOK AWESOME FOR 17 WEEKS!

Im going to say this right now as I'm thinking about it.

If you as the mother KNOWS the dr is wrong on something do NOT be afraid to do what you feel is right.

Savannah has had a "yeast" rash for a MONTH. They blamed it on her cloth they blamed on this, they blamed it on that. They said she had acid reflux and that's why she was spitting up and cranky. I have been saying from day one I feel its an allergy.

It had to be a food allergy as well because NONE of it was a issue until she stopped breastfeeding full time. They were dead set it was a diaper issue or anything but the food.

I put her on Nutrimigien and its clear in 24 hrs.


ETA: The without a diaper test was to see if it helped at all and it did because the SECOND she pooped it got wiped off. (Jeremy thought it was poop/food related)

Then the 24 hrs with a diaper completely was to prove it either WAS or wasnt the diapers.

Our middle names are already picked out. His/her middle name will be the first name of my FIL/MIL since this is their first grandchild.

It's first names that DH and I can't agree on! He likes bland, simple names and I like names that are slightly more unique (I'm not talking Peaches Honeyblossom or anything...).

I figure, I really want him involved in naming the baby but it's REALLY important to not have the fifth "Bella" in a class.

Aww thanks! My mother in law sent me a couple shirts, which was awesome, because buying them new is crazy expensive. Half the stuff I have is off Craigslist.

Thanks! No kicking yet but I know the spud is moving around. The doctor had to chase it all over with the doppler thing and it kept kicking the microphone. Lol.

We have no names picked out. Well, I have some girl names, no boy names, but Matt does not have any. Lol. I am a total nerd and actually wrote a program so we could rate names and then compare them against each other. It still needs some tweaking, but the basis is there. I just need to get Matt to sit down and rate names.

Also, given how awful we're being about finding a first name I'm getting slightly concerned about how in the heck we're going to find a middle name.

I got my patterns from all over but the easiest to make and one of the most comfortable for me is a pattern based on the ball baby overall. The pattern can be found online and is free. Jan dandrea site, or sleeping baby productions has it and many other patterns. I would link but am on my phone.

Eta: der, link is in post above
I forgot to come back to this, but thank you! And to darkchild as well, I foresee some fabric being added to my stash this weekend.
