...will now be known as *MamaJen*.<br>
Because, um, seven months ago I didn't realize I would become obsessed with MDC, and actually want to hang around after the delivery of my child, when the name newmamatobe would become defunct. No longer applicable. And so on.<br>
Anyway, the lesson I learned from this is don't undertake the task of picking out long-term user names while your head is spinning from learning you are unexpectedly in the family way.<br>
So that's that.

Congrats on your name change. I have the same problem!

I'm right there with you, my name is so lame, picked before I even knew really what having a user name would be, but I haven't bothered to change it yet. Maybe you will be my inspiration!

I'm right there with you--I picked it out without much thought and now Liv will not be the only little one I'm "Mom" to! Maybe you'll be my inspiration too.

Woohoo! Now, if I can just scrape together enough brain cells to figure out who KittyWitty used to be (I'm such an idiot---how many times have I read her "location" and now I can't connect it to her old name. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/duh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="duh">), and I'll be feeling considerably more in the loop! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
And Karen, I like your username! I mean, a mama is always in a state of expectancy, IMO....so, he'll soon be on the outside. You'll still be expectant.....so many hopes and dreams and goals to look forward to! I guess I think of the word more in the "marked by eager anticipation" sense than in the "heavy with child" sense. But that's just me.....and it could just be that I'm trying to convince you not to change your name so I won't have to be confused, LOL! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Psst...when y'all change your names, could you PM me or post an update to the roll call thread or something so I can change your name on the roster? So far I've been able to figure it out, but with so many people contemplating name changes, I'm afraid I'll come in one day and not know who anybody is anymore <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

I changed my name once upon a time, because my name used to be DannyJulian89, and I knew I would be having more babies someday. Plus, a lot of people thought I was born in 89, therefore making me 18. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I'm not much older than that, so I'm very defensive about those extra couple of years!

oooh! Congrats on the new name! Glad you like MDC so much! I didn't know about it during my first pg. and I am loving our ddc and all the great advice and suggestions. I also love the toddlers page for info and ideas for my 19 mo old! There are so many other sections I haven't even begun to explore!

That's good to know! I am a huge procrastinator-and have no idea what to change my name to-but it's good to know that other people don't see as expectant as pregnant! A year ago when I made it up I was being optimistic that I would be pregnant real soon-now a year later I am optimistic that this child will be out NOW!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I haven't figured Kittywitty out either. Pg brain prevents me from holding a thought long enough to figure it out. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>

See, I've been the opposite these last nine months, feeling like a poser by calling myself "mama" already! Oh well, soon enough, my name will match my reality!<br><br>
And add me to the "who the hell was kittywitty in her previous life club"!!

I totally should know...it was someone who didn't post here much at first, but I know I liked the stuff she wrote...then she was posting a bit more...and I bet she's laughing at all of us right now trying to figure out who she is.

I have wanted to change my name for quite a while, but I can't figure out how to do it. I know what I want to change it to, I just can't figure it out....duh.<br>
But I hate mamablueberry.<br>
Then I wanted to wait until after the baby was born now that I have posted enough for people to recognize me.Maybe when we move to life with a babe thread...

Some of us do it for security reasons and don't want to be too public. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> I didn't get around to Pm'ing everyone, yet, I didn't even think about telling everyone but a couple people. Sorry. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent">

Enough with the name changes, OK.<br><br>
Seriously stop.<br><br>
I will never be able to decode all of this, I will feel like you all have really left and been replaced by these new people that just SEEM familiar.<br><br>
I'm serious.<br><br>
Kitty Witty Did it.<br><br>
Now Mama to be is Jen<br><br>
And who ever knew expectantmami was a Karen, In my mine she's Ami because I never noticed the "m" in "mami<br><br><br>
Isn't life confusing enough?<br><br>
Please, people, don't make my brain go through all of this.<br>
OK OK OK if you MUST do a name change, and it's not for security reasons, leave us a clue somewhere. Like "The artist formerly known as..." That works. Or how about "I used to be..." That would work, too.<br><br>
I recognize Kitty Witty's "Room of Requirement" If I ever saw or heard the old user name, I'd be saying "OH YEAH....OF COURSE..."

OK OK OK OK-IF I do a name change I will let everyone know. It may be awhile because pregnant brain over here can't have a creative thought lately. I did figure out KittyWitty-it was the room of requirement-and it was in another post!

No, I wasn't talking about you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hide.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hide">: I have a PM from you and seem to be one of the only people who knows who you are. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> I was mostly referring to the ones who are just changing to a more appropriate name or one they like better. I totally understand the security reasons and don't expect people to post about it when that's why they're changing it!
