Wow I forgot about this thread there for a bit.
My oldest is Hunter Lee. I had heard the name Hunter the year before I got pregnant and I just loved it. I didn't give DH the choice. Haha! Lee is a family name. My middle name is Lea (pronouced lee) and my brother's and his son's middle name is Lee so... I continued with it.
My grumpy middle son is Tristin Ryan. Dh got his pick this time. Knight of the round table and all that. The Ryan was really just thrown in there because it flowed well.
My youngest is Ethan Asher. I REEEEEEEALLY wanted the name Asher but Dh didn't want it as a first name. I'm still a bit bummed about it but he really does look like an Ethan. So it's okay. Second and third time around
We didn't tell anyone were were TTC or even pregnant at all until I was 12 or 13 weeks along. I didn't receive really any negative opinions/reactions my first time around (17 yrs old) so I didn't expect any nor did I get any that time. We had been married a year and 1/2 at that point. My mom was more upset that I was pregnant right before DH was deploying. She started crying actually because she was sad for me.
The third time was a shock to everyone. We were done done done... vasectomy done. The one unprotected time before the follow up test... hello there. I call it user error. Haha! He was a pleasant surprise.
With my family they have welcomed my children positively. Regardless of my age, these were new members of our family. We may be a dysfunctional bunch but family is family no matter what. I'm not sure how they would have reacted if they knew we were TTC though. I just didn't feel it was their business so we didn't share it with them.
(BTW I had my sons at 17, 19 and 21.)How I found MDC
I was on another message board and they started talking (badly) about the breastfeeding smilie/icons here. I came over to see so I knew what the heck they were talking about. I've been around ever since.
I was already semi-AP but finding MDC really got me into it.
I have a little one crawling all over me. I just got a foot in the face so I think that's my cue to get off here and stop wasting time.
