Thread: Naming when you aren't into it?
June 10th, 2013 03:59 PM #126
Just a word on the decor: our 'decor' in our baby room is completely neutral, since it's meant for whoever is living in it at the time.
The furniture is dark brown wood, the breathable bumper is a matching dark brown, and the basic sheets for the mattress are light brown gingham. Walls are a nice neutral yellow with some bright sunshiney yellow accents. Bright pictures of animals and in all colors - Eric Carl style, so all the colors are in there. We have a few 'gender specific' sheets for the crib that we rotate also (because with babies / toddlers, you never know how many sheets you'll need to go through in any given time), and each baby winds up having a special blanket too that is displayed somehow.
Gender Neutral is the best way to go, in my opinion.
Good luck with the rest of the pregnancy, your health, and naming your baby!

RAI at this point. Most of what I've read online and been told by others who experienced it is quite scary, not to mention I've seen some studies published showing evidence of RAI increasing risks of other cancers, though those studies have not yet been duplicated. I'm very concerned about the whole issue. My endocrinologist today switched me to synthroid (I was on levothyroxine) to see if that would help with my side effects and klonopin to assist with the severe anxiety I'm experiencing. I'm not interested in anti-depressants, so I feel like my time with the mental health community is a waste at this point.
Thanks for the link. I feel like there is so much information out there and yet so much of it doesn't even sound sane (there are lots of pro-NDT sites and whatnot, but I just am not sure that's for me). I just feel ill-prepared. I was just now given my path report, so I do feel a bit better about having acquired more information. I know that the internet isn't a doctor, but in the absence of answers from my actual doctors, where else was I supposed to go?
I do like Alaric and Aurelius. Oddly, so does my husband. I think they work well with the girls' names. I'm not ready to pull the trigger on either yet thouhg and I think I need middle names to really make a choice.
I've decided that when I"m ready, I'll do the nursery in things that appeal to me and design based on my aesthetic and not "baby" stuff. Perhaps that's selfish, but I think I stand the best chance this way.
I appreciate your assistance tremendously.Mom to:

I don't have any children myself, but I'd imagine your reaction is pretty normal - I'm desperate for a girl, and I think I'll have the same reaction if I have a boy, but I'm sure it won't matter once I hold him in my arms.
Name wise, your girls' names are so beautiful and old fashioned, so I assume you would like a name to match?
Finn Charles, Oliver Maxwell or Henry Cole are a few suggestions
