Little Miss...

I belong to the December 2013 community board on  Sometimes it's nice to have a group of gals going through the same stage of pregnancy as I am to bounce ideas off of.  From the very beginning, you can see the topics go through phases:

Phase 1: "BFP!!!"  (big fat positive preggo test)
Phase 2: "Morning sickness???"  (wants people to agree they are or are not experiencing it)
Phase 3: "First ultrasound/heartbeat!!!"  (need I say more?)
Phase 4: "Boy or girl???"
Phase 5: "Names!?"  (usually asking for opinions, but really just looking for approval)
Phases 6-10...I'll keep you posted

Somewhere in between you have the rants about in-laws, the heartbreaking stories of miscarriage, and "let's talk cravings."

So we're at Phase 5 right now...names.  The common theme these days seems to be "unique."  Everyone wants a one-of-a-kind name that ONLY their child will have; no one else in the whole world.  Unfortunately, you then end up with names like Apple, Blu Ivy, and North.  I just don't get it.  I'm certainly not the only Lisa in this world, and, honestly, it hasn't affected my life one bit.

That said, I am now joining that crazy mamas club and making our name announcement before the Duchess of Cambridge decides to go and birth a baby girl and pick the exact name that we thought of first and I be accused of stealing it.  (Most of the time I think I'm pretty rational...then I go and have thoughts like this.)

So, without further ado, it is my pleasure to introduce to you Miss...

Coming up next week: the results of our 20-week anatomy scan!
