Everything is still going pretty well with the pregnancy. I had an appointment a couple of weeks ago and everything looked really good. I had to do the glucose tolerance test, they checked for anemia, etc. and all the levels were great. I also had to get a shot because I'm Rh-negative, and will more than likely have to get another one after the baby is born. :(
They also did another sonogram, and the baby looks good. The tech could even tell that she already has some hair on her head! :) I can't wait to put tiny little baby bows in her hair. And do a little water spout ponytail on top of her head. Of course I would never do these things to myself, only tiny helpless little people that it actually looks cute on.
And now the moment you've all been waiting for: her name. Now keep in mind that this is not typed onto her birth certificate with a typewriter just yet, but it's the name that we think we're going with. I'll explain each one individually. (Got a while?)
First name: Macy
No, not after the department store, Macy Gray, or William H. Macy. We just like the name, it's a little different, it's only two syllables, easy to pronounce, and it's short (up against her gigantizoid last name). Also, when I was looking at the Nowell family tree (after we had decided on Macy), I came across a Macy Nowell who was born probably in the late 1800's/early 1900s, and was my great-grandfather's brother's daughter. How cool is that?! So it's a family name too.
Middle name: Blair
It's Mom's maiden name. Simple as that. And it's pretty.
Middle name #2 (yes, that's correct): Bunman
Pronounced boon-MON, it's Burin's mother's first name. He really wants her name to be a part of the baby's name, and his mom meant the world to him, so I can understand and oblige (I guess) :) Plus, she can just use the middle initial B, which will go for either middle name.
Last name: N.
Sooo.. there you have it.
Macy Blair Bunman N.
Lord help the poor child. ;)
