I am due to have a little boy in July as well and we have not decided on a name either. I had hoped for another boy and thought we had a name before I even became pregnant... but nothing seems to fit right with him. I think (hope) the name will come to either me or my husband when the baby arrives. I have no name advice, but just know you aren't alone in having a "no-name" baby :-) Good luck!
Hey @wahpro, how are you feeling these days?
i'm sorry you are feeling the way that you are. our first was a boy...and i didn't realize it...but i guess i had secretly wanted a girl...because when we found out, i had a pang of disappointment. the hairdo's i wouldn't get to do, the outfits i wouldn't get to buy. seriously...walking into a store irritates me sometimes! the amount of darling girl things vs. boy! luckily, it didn't last long. i love my boy. he is sweet and loving and boys always love their mama! i painted some big murals on our nursery walls! it was a lot of fun! his room is funky and fun...and there isn't a football in sight!
as for the naming bit...we are having our second boy and it is just no fun thinking of a name! that's how i ended up here! what about xavier? or edward? good luck! and i hope you are feeling better soon!
Just start making a name list. A list is not a commitment to a name. Just brainstorm and don't think so much about your disappointment. Start coming up with your own do's and don'ts for names and make a collection of names. Perhaps you won't use any of the names on your list, but get the ideas going and you may start to see a pattern for what kind of boy names you would be happy with.
I have gender disappointment! However, I don't have two beautiful daughters to celebrate, as this is my first child. I grew up in an all-girls family and my sisters have little girls - I just didn't seriously consider that my first child would be a boy, so I was in shock for several weeks after the u/s.
However, I have since moved forward (mostly) and am really looking forward to this new experience for myself and my whole family - I think I have moved forward as much as I can. Of course I am hoping for a little girl next go-around.
It sounds like you could use some assistance in moving forward and you may want to seek out someone to talk to who can help you move forward! Your baby is your child whether he's a boy or girl, and he'll be here very, very soon! You should do what you can to try to mentally prepare yourself to bring the child into the world on an equal level with your other two children, and that includes naming. I'm not trying to be harsh - I just think you should try to move forward since he is nearly here.
