could you have the dr. write down the gender and put it in an envelope- that way you can bring it home and open it and find out together?

This is what I'm hoping for wink1.gif

But as it was they kinda wanted me to wait for my next appointment to find out, I'm not sure! Gah all these new "rules" since having my last. Before the US techs were allowed to tell us. Now the Doctor has to.

So as it is they'll be squeezing me in just to tell me which feels silly and hopefully they'll just write it down but who knows... They said they won't tell me over the phone because they can't verify it's me...

They are just too busy...

So he was back to "well it's a girl anyways so we don't need to find out"... And while yes it most likely is a girl, I just have this nagging feelin like it may not be (but could just be wishful thinking). I really want to find out this time! For a few selfish reason really. But I cannot for the life of me come up with ANY girl names I like! And usually I'm all about the girl names and flounder with the boys! So he says "S.carlett C.adence P.atricia LastName" and is adament he's name "her"... Ummmmmm no! I *hate* C.adence and he's been pushing for it forever... He only likes it because of one of the characters in American Wedding lol.gif S.carlett would be because he has a huge celeb crush on S.calett J.ohannsen *rolls eyes* (he didn't tell me the reasons persay but I know that's why wink1.gif ) and P.atricia is my moms middle name and we put a family name in that spot. I thought he wanted A.udrey after his late grandmother so that was random. Plus I'm not sure that's a name I'd use!? Both of those names but especially my mom's middle would absolute drive his mother INSANE so it's tempting that way lol.gif

Naming this time is going to be a horrible mess because he really thinks he's going to be the one doing it *sigh* oh and the kids think they have some sort of say in it!!! We don't tell the names to anyone IRL or usually online (hence the periods so they can't be googled wink1.gif ) until babe is born because we got So.Much.Flack the first time!

My DH pushed a name he liked from day 1. A.lethea. I hated it. Now it's DD's mn! He doesn't get to complain about names anymore! I hated it at first to but it fit in the end and it's her so I don't hate it anymore.

I'm not against S.carlett... I just don't like the other one... And I'm just not feeling girl names in general... Usually there's lots I like!

He's just being really ornery and cranky in general lately... So there's no real point in even starting to discuss such a heated (for us) topic at the moment. He's going to be really set on his choices and I'm just not able to make a decision on a good day about anything!

Twin boys would be sooooo easy to name at this point lol.gif but anything else is going to be a bit tougher!

Cool. It would be a boy name for us, but I have heard Remy might be turning girl.

Nope it's cute! But we have this thing about always giving out kids the "long version" of a name and the. Calling them by the short version. DH & I both have names that are either the short version (think Joe not Joseph) or ones that can't be shortened. So that would be only issue if I were to use it. Very pretty name and I like the way it sounds.

AFM we aren't doing much name stuff. Have a dream about a middle name Leela for a girl and was reading a name book at the chiro yesterday and found Allegra. I like both of them but not together. I'm just really not invested in names right now. *shrugs*

So. We are either at W.hitley L.aurel or L.aurel W.hitely... it will just depend what she looks like!!!

Either way I really like the options. 

 

I like Remy for a boy or a girl. Cute.

I went to grad school with a girl named Remy.  I was secretly jealous of her cool name. ; )

 

We're kind of terrible at naming children. It's always super last minute. My oldest son, Dante Samuel, was named 2 days after he was born. If you want to really p*ss off a nurse, don't give your baby a name until right before you leave the hospital.  I swear they came in like every hour to ask if we'd named him yet.  My youngest son, Paul Daniel, was named like an hour after his birth but only because he was an emergency transfer from the birth center to the NICU. I didn't want him to ride in the ambulance without a name. How's that for the logic of a distraught mother!

 

For this one we have some ideas for girls but nothing definite. We won't find out sex until next week so I guess we could be back at square one come next Wednesday.  So far we like Hazel Esther, Nora Joy, and Zoey Joanna.

Otheramerica: yes! I agree. My son was 2 days old before he had a name and te nurses drove us crazy! You'd have thought no one had ever, in the history of the world, waited for 2 days to name a baby.

Both of my kids were named in the delivery room, but it wasn't but a few minutes after birth. I already knew what I wanted (and he liked) and he would have given me anything I wanted right after watching birth. Before we had a good idea, but he wouldn't commit. Even if we had a name early, I wouldn't have shared it with anyone outside of my mom, maybe. Everyone is too opinionated if it's up in the air! We live in a small, very conservative town in NC, and my inlaws aren't the type to appreciate anything "out of the ordinary." I don't think either of my kids have particularly difficult names to pronounce but it took my MIL months to learn to say them (somewhat) properly. Ciara and Killian...can't we just call them C and K to make it easier to say? It's easier just to say the name after it's already done so they can't try to argue it.

 

We're having a boy, but my two favorite girl names were Cassidy Anne or Aisling P-something. Anne is a family name on both my mom and dad's side, Cassidy is my favorite Grateful Dead song, and is Irish to boot. Aisling was a far second to Cassidy but my husband hated Cassidy and I doubted I could convince him this time either. Then I was thinking of a P name because that would make the same initials as my husband (they love initials) but his middle is Patrick, his mom and grandmother were both Patty. Aisling Patricia didn't go well, but it might have worked.

 

I'm not sure of any boy names quite yet. Three of the names I like are already in use by someone in our family, and I would never use them. I think my husband would be kind of mad if I wanted to anyway because I refused to have a Jr. His name is Adam, so there's no nickname...Big Adam, little Adam? AJ for Adam Junior? Just plain Junior? I hate ALL of those. HATE them. I offered to do the reverse, and have a Patrick Adam instead of an Adam Patrick, but my husband didn't like that at all.

My family had trouble with Dante. They kept saying they "didn't understand it". What does that even mean? It's a name! What is there to understand? They called him Sam for the first 6 months of his life. Drove me batty!

Don't understand?? Of all the things to say about a name...and choosing a different name to call him by is just wrong in my book. I'm a nickname hater though, even without a reason why.

That is just bizarre.  Dante isn't even an out-there name! It's super classic and while not common, everyone's heard it.  Wtf?

That would drive anyone batty, having other people just summarily choosing a new name for your baby, because they didn't like the one you chose. I would probably have started calling them by names that weren't theirs, and if that didn't work, not letting them come over.

My mother irritates me with her own overstepping interest in what names we choose. She actually objected to the name James. Seriously? She said she preferred John, and I goggled at her rudeness and reminded her that she got to name her own children, and I would name mine, thank you.

 

For this reason, I also don't discuss naming choices with anyone aside from my DH, beforehand.

 

Unfortunately, my 6 year old son has a strong and overly vocalized opinion as to what we should name this baby, that he started insisting on the moment we found out it was a boy, during the ultrasound. He told us we HAVE to name him Jack! He kept repeating it all the way home until we told him to quit bugging us about it, or else it would only be more likely we would never consider the name, from being annoyed about it.

 

What irritates me most is, Jack is a nickname for John, and I would have liked to have been free to consider the name John without the disagreeable feeling that my mother would feel her opinion had something to do with it, so then I feel a resistance toward a name I might otherwise have considered.

UGH. I'm going to Nameberry and hope for inspiration free of pushy relatives' opinions!

I have to know: what does '******l' mean? I gather it must be an expletive, but it ends in L yet is a verb? Someone clue me in.

Oh, and while we're at it, what's with the convention of putting a period in the names when you mention them? Just curious.

Cool idea about the attempt to search-proof. Always worth thinking about. And thanks for the info on *****l because it had me mystified.

We got a look, but the doctor wasn't sure, and and the tech just walked in and glanced. I'm not sold on it, but I have my actual anatomy scan tomorrow, so I'll be certain, I hope!!

Here's the shot, in the middle, next to our son and daughter. I feel like it could go either way. lol
