Pregnancy: Weeks 21 and 22

Oh dear, this has been a more eventful two weeks than all of the other weeks combined


1. Found out we are having a Boy....hooray!!

2. Decided on NOT calling it Bruce anymore, out of fear that it will stick, which we NEVER intended...


3. After the UltraSound, Skeletor is a much more appropriate name..See what I mean?


The doctor came into the room after the US and really didn't have much to say....because so far he is PERFECT!!

4. Celebrated my first mothers day for real, kind of for real at least!

5. Grew THREE inches in ONE week. What???? THREE INCHES~!!!! What kind of insanity is that????

6. Still keeping the impending name choices for Skeletor a secret and it is KILLING our moms...sorry moms! We love you still!!! They are good names, you don't have to worry.

7. Speaking of names...You can comment on potential names! That would be rad. We are having a hard time, and have whittled it down to three or four, but still aren't sold on any of them....

8. Got a mattress for the crib. Organic filled so little Skeletor won't be sleeping on formaldehyde soaked cotton.

9. Back at "fighting weight" as the doc called it....

10. Discovered that people patting my growing belly isn't as cute as they think it is.

He is the sweetest skeletor I have ever seen!

Skeletor...I like it. I think Ken would be proud of this name. Why do people think they have the right to touch a pregnant woman's stomach? That really bothers me. I am not a patter...even if I know the person really well...that is an invasion and not okay!

May I suggest some German boy names:
Wolfgang (this is practically a family name...this was Kyle's German name in High School)
Fritz, Heinz, Jürgen, Helmut, Timo, Karsten, Dieter, or the combo Heinz-Dieter, Manfred, Kai, Rüdiger, Johannes, Ludwig, Volker, Bernd, Franz, Axel, Sebastian (Basti for short), Jochen...
Do any of these names strike your fancy?? I am sure that Kyle can pronounce them for you correctly if you have a question. Just thought you might want to consider keeping the German heritage alive!

yeah a boy! so fun! My husband says he likes the name "David". :) Maybe you could try to find a shirt with a pic of barbed wire around the belly...perhaps people would get the message! My hubby had another idea, he wants a shirt that says, "giant boil. dont touch. might pop." ummmmm, that might work too!

It's so fun to read about your journey.

It almost makes me want a kid, but then I'm hopped up on pain meds and post-anesthesia.
