I love the name Athena and I don't think it's at all pretentious. It's really pretty and if you love it then it should be back in the running. I always tell my friends who are expecting their first babies to make sure they LOVE the name(s) they're choosing because it's forever and you'll say it and write it about a trillion times in your lifetime. I can't imagine my kids having a name that I wasn't crazy about. I'd probably have to change it! lol When I was about 8 mos pregnant with my DD I had a sudden freak out and decided that we HAD to find a different name for her. The name we had chosen was Cameo, which I liked, but it wasn't her name. It took many tears (on my part, because I was so frustrated with not finding "the" name) before we settled on her current name (Hannah), which I love.
On the peeing thing... YES!! This bub is transverse most of the time, which is great for not putting a lot of pressure on my bladder. But when he moves to vertex or breech and especially when he starts kicking my bladder, I have to run for it! Thank God for Kegels and great bladder control or I'm sure I would have peed myself several times by now.
No complicated sleeping situations here, thank goodness! I need less complicated as much as possible! My daughter has nightmares so she'll come crawl in with me every so often. She did it again last night, actually, because we had a HUGE thunderstorm and she gets scared. But she's 10, nearly 11, so it's easy enough for her to relocate herself if necessary. I have a pack'n'play right next to my bed that is going to be the bed for naps and such, but at night baby will be in bed with me. At some point he'll move in with big brother but that's a ways down the road, like at least a year or more. I'm really not worried about it, we'll just see what happens and go with it.
Our weekend was pretty good. The weather was beautiful! The kids had their games on Saturday and I ended up working for almost 3 hours in the concession stand at the ballpark instead of the hour that I was supposed to be in there. But, I could sit down when I wanted and it was cooler in there than on the bleachers, and I could see Hannah's game, so I was happy. Sunday we spent most of the day out in the yard. My mom and I are putting up a combo trellis/fence along one side of our driveway. We have a wisteria and 3 grapevines that need something to climb on, and the dogs need to be contained in the yard. This fulfills both purposes. Plus we'll be adding kind of a pergola thing that goes over the driveway so the viney things can grow across that and shade the side of the house that is in full sun all day long. I did a little weeding too, which is good for practicing my deep squats. :) My niece and younger nephew came over in the morning so my BIL could go on this mud run thing with his friend, and my niece ended up staying all day instead of going home with her daddy. The girls played all day and had a blast, which was nice. Kaleb entertained himself across the street with his friend. All in all it was a good weekend. I didn't do any school work, which is bad because I have a case study due Friday, a ton of clinical paperwork to finish, a simulation lab to get ready for, a research paper due Friday, and an exam tomorrow. I'm about to start working on some of that in just a bit.
This morning was also the start of DS doing his intensive OP therapy program. I spent a few hours at the program this morning answering questions, giving background, and filling out paperwork. When I left, he was in group with some other kids. I'm really hoping that this helps and that we can use this as a really good starting point for further therapy for both him and our family. The program does family therapy and parenting education, both of which my mom and I will be going to. I hate to see my sweet boy hurting and I pray that I'm able to help him past this rough spot. He's such a good kid, so smart and funny and helpful and sweet, that it just kills me to see this rude, ornery, belligerent man-child taking over his body.
