    @cyoung: Ruby and David are lovely names. I find it very difficult to name this baby because he or she will be such a mixture of heritages. Hjörtur is too, but with him my ex-husband and I decided on giving him an Iceland name pretty early on. With this baby SO and I are looking for a more "international" name, while still honoring as many of both our heritage as possible.

    @bluedanube: I adore Ulysses, but I don't have the guts to use it as a first name. Vincent Ulysses is on our list though. The name Ulysses also has a special meaning for SO and me because years ago we met in a book shop where he worked, and we started talking to each other because I bought Ulysses by James Joyce and he told me he loved it so much.

    @theresa: congratulations!

    Welcome @_theresa_! Our girls are 19 months apart and it's been exhausting but great so far! You will love it too I'm sure.

    Just a little update from me. Not much has changed this pregnancy. Still tired, nauseous, and my back hurts. I think my pants are starting to get a bit tighter already but my loose skin is hiding any kind of bump that may be there. I had a couple baby dreams recently that baby is a boy which makes me think it's a girl since I had boy dreams with my daughters. I can't wait to know already! Is everyone planning on finding out the gender?

    Welcome @theresa!

    I didn't do the Harmony test because I was too lazy to jump through the hoops I was going to need to get it (my OB was going to make me go to a perinatologist for it) so instead we had the NT scan ultrasound and blood draw today. 12 weeks today. Luckily everything looked great DH was excited because the baby's skull resembles Megatron in one of the ultrasound pictures, lol. That same picture reminds me a lot of Indy when he was very small. It gives me the "yep, that's my kid" feeling. The sonographer also guessed that it is a boy, and he seemed much more confident in his guess than he did with Indy (and he was correct about him). Always a relief to get good news all around, whew!

    @cyoung: we're not finding out our baby's gender. I did with Hjörtur, because my ex-husband wanted to, and I thought I did too, but it just didn't feel right. So with this one it'll be a surprise. It will force us and family and friends to buy gender neutral things for the baby, and that's something I find important. I'm not an extremist, I just hate gender stereotypes.

    I've been experiencing more pregnancy symptoms this week. I felt very nauseous every day, mostly in the mornings but also later in the day, and yesterday I had a terrible headache. I also feel exhausted and I have to pee every five minutes.
    I told my co-workers I'm pregnant, I have to tell my employer as early as possible for health and safety reasons and some things/places I have to avoid now, so they'd find out soon enough.

    I can't wait for my first appointment with the gyn to see if everything's going well.

    Had my first appointment today. I'm only 6-7 weeks, so nothing fun as far as testing - just a pee test. I can schedule a sizing ultrasound for later this week and to hear the heartbeat, so that's exciting! Midwife gave me a due date of Nov 10, but it's actually a few days later than that based on my cycle length and OD - more like the 13th or 14th.

    I have definitely been feeling pregnant this whole time. The last 2 weeks I have been so tired, and I'm hungry pretty much all the time. Lol. Last week some food aversions hit me pretty hard, but no real nausea to speak of. I feel bloated and huge (but found out today I haven't gained any weight even though I'm an eating machine, so that made me feel better) and my boobs are sore and enormous. Lol. It's crazy that technically I'm 6 1/2 weeks pregnant, but the baby is really only 3 weeks old. I was pretty surprised we succeeded this first month - I really expected it to take a little while and have an EDD in January or February of 2020. Lol. It feels like this baby is going to be here before I know it even though I'm just at the beginning.

    We are definitely finding out the sex of the baby. I am doing the blood test at 9 weeks (9 weeks!!!) that will screen for genetic abnormalities and also reveal the sex, so that is super exciting. We are hoping for a girl, and I'm kind of feeling girl vibes, but that is probably wishful thinking. It will probably be a boy Husband finally told me that he really doesn't like the name Ulysses (he was just kind of indifferent before) but I pointed out that he chose the name Veridian and that seemed to satisfy him. We have really different naming styles, especially for boys, so that's why we are really hoping for a girl, lol.

    I don't have a preference for either gender, it's all the same to me. When we told Hjörtur a few months ago that he might have a baby brother or sister in future (this was before we were even TTC) he was very clear that he wants a little brother though

    I think we've pretty settled on names for both genders now, I'm just having some doubts about a middle name for a girl.
