Happy I hope it goes well ... is it just a check up type visit??

Okay ladies I need your help with baby girl names!! We don't know if it's a girl or boy yet but we have our boy name already and have narrowed down our list of girl names. I'm pretty sure this is the short list because I haven't found anything else I like enough to add. So .. if it's a girl her middle name will be Catherine after DH great aunt. I don't like the name at all but it's important to him so I agreed. Okay .. here they are .. which do you like best and which one goes best with Mason & Ella... oh and our last name too I guess .. Bilby.
1. Avalie Catherine Bilby (or Avalee/Avaleigh)
2. Chelsea Catherine
3. Hailey Catherine
4. Megan Catherine
(Cailey and Callie are also on the list but I go back and forth on them)

Happy: I hope they figure something out for you all. Keep us posted.

Linds: I think the first one is best because you have very different names for the others so it's only fitting that this new little one has a different name also. Am I making sense? They are all great though. I'm not sure about having C for a first and middle name though. Hope that helps.

Hi to everyone else, I'm just checking in from time to time. Not much going on TTC wise so I'm boring! However, my brother just informed me last night that he plans to be pregnant by the end of summer if they aren't already! My first nephew is 14 months, second one is 2 months and now they may be pg already or will be soon. I'm crushed. I swear they just look at each other and get pg! Plus they had an abortion before the 14 month old and was going to abort him too but he kicked her. So crazy!

Linds- Chealsea Catherine is nice. I like the alliteration. All are pretty. I get the family name thing. If we have a boy eventually, his middle name will be Edward, which was DH's dad's middle name. Dh is already named after his dad, but it is important to him. I get it.

Happy- hope it goes well today!

Anna Yup total sense. I was thinking the exact same thing. Avalie is my favourite but DH isn't sure and it's not getting a warm response from people I tell. But I really like it.

Med Chelsea is DH favourite .. it's a very close second for me too. And although I feel the same way about the letter C for a first and middle name as Anna I actually think it works okay with Chelsea.

Thanks for your thoughts! I think Avalie, Chelsea and Hailey are my top three.

HOly crap she just left after 2 hours...Sierra just sat there acting like a sweetie pie...I laughed I was so frustrated..THe worker is dead set on making it work. She said a judge will never grant a termination if we don't do everything to make it work. DUH!!!!!!

Linds...Love Avaleigh.....Love Ava like I was saying...Leigh is Benjamin's middle name so I am on that one for sure...PLUS DH is getting Catherine against your wishes so you should get a big say in the first name!!!

Anna...it seems that everyone around you will be pregnant now..and not on the fair side either...like your brother...Don't worry...it will happen...focus on you and what God has planned for you, no one else. There was a WITCH here when I first started named Ziggy...she was the LEADER of a christian wives group I tried to join, when she found out I was a medium she cursed me out and made the other women turn as well. She then went on to rant over the Duggards having #19..she was and is a horrible woman. She is STILL not pregnant and left the site altogether...Iguess that was GOd's way of paying her back for being such a horrible woman. NOT that you will have the same happen to you, but the point is....He has a plan for you as well....lessons and everything so ask HIM was the plan is and what you can do to help it along..listen and wait. On the new moon, write your wishes down, a letter to Him..take it outside and burn it,the whole time thinking your letter to Him...make sure it is all gone and finish with a prayer. He will answer it quickly. I promise.

Happy I think it's terrible that you adopt to try to make a difference in that persons life (I'm not sure what your reasons were for adopting her but regardless) and then when it doesn't work out for reasons beyond your control and it's putting the rest of your family which includes small children in an unhealthy environment they pretty much tell you you're stuck with it. I just think it's terrible. You try to do a good thing and nobody has your back. I really truly hope everything works out for you and the rest of your family.

We got the house!! I'm excited about it but also a bit sad. I love where we are now so it's a bittersweet feeling to be leaving such a great neighbourhood and the place we brought all of our kids home from the hospital (we'll still be here when this baby is born). There are so many memories here .. but I know we'll make new ones at the new house. It's brand new and not built yet so we're not moving until next summer .. I have lots of time to get used to the idea :) And thanks for all the input on our girl names .. I've narrowed it down from 4 (possibly 6) to three .. Avalie/Avaleigh, Chelsea and Hailey are now the top three. So now we wait to find out if it's a girl or boy and if it's a girl we'll make a decision!

Hello ladies!! I've been reading, just haven't had a lot to say.

Linds~ YAY for a good appt! I'm so excited for you to find out the gender. I'm thinking girl for you. I like Avalie the best. :D And Congrats on your new house!!

Happy~ I can't believe what is going on with DD. I agree with everything Linds said...it just doesn't make sense. How are you doing otherwise?

Meag~ Welcome to the group!! I hope when your DF is home next that you guys catch that egg! And holy cow, you guys get a good child incentive out there!!

Erin~ Thanks for your update! I hope you caught the egg this month even though you don't feel like you did!

Mommy5~ OMGOSH you poor thing! How SCARY! You have so much on your plate right now...prayers for you and Dexter!

Jess~ I love you twincess comment on fb, too!! That was so cute.

Val~ We seriously need to run away together! We should meet in SLC sometime and do something fun!! Get a pedicure or something!

Claudia~ Thanks for asking about me. I'm ok. Having some really crazy family drama, the kind only Happy might understand. lol Sorry, that doesn't explain much, but it is SO far out there that it is hard to talk about it with everyone. But I'm ok. Stressed, but ok.

Hi to EOE!!! Sorry if I missed you!!

AFM...doing ok. Crazy stuff going on with my family (siblings, mostly), but that's pretty typical. Haha....Home life is good! Kids make me crazy some days, but I wouldn't trade them for the world. I'm feeling TONS of kicks and wiggles now, and I love it! Midwife changed my due date to 11/9 so I need to update my ticker. I have my 20 week appt tomorrow and she will double check gender for me. As long as she says girl again we may go shopping for a few things tomorrow! I'm excited to see my baby again! :D

Hi all,

Just stuck in miserable AF land - blah.

Rebecca - odd that they are here now but not over the past while when things were bad and you cold have used support. Back when you were trying was when you should have been given help. Meh...
Have you kept a journal or anything of Sierras behavior? From what you have said
Re her I Would not doubt that this is just to have attention focused on her. Maybe not conscioulsy. I suppose if she acts normal in the visits they will not put her in a facility? Sad as she really seems to need help.

Linds - ohh a new house settled? Is this different from the one you were talking about before - that was in an older neighborhood - right?
I like Hailee and Avaleigh:) Glad everything is ticking along!

Future - hey! And good :luck:

Mommyof five - I hope you get some answers soon.

I need to run - will try to check in later today or 2mor.

Morning all!

Karen, I keep a journal of all goings-on so I can remember dates and times. And yes..it is sad that she puts on the good girl face when others are around...it angers me. She had a major meltdown last night and I wouldn't let her come to dinner until she stopped freaking out. It took 1 1/2 and she ate alone. She destroyed her room and threw everything she could get her hands on. LOL...we just played and I protected Benjamin from hearing it.

Speaking of Benjamin only a bit of skin holding back his tooth on top and then he'll have all 4 there. YE HA~~~ He is sleeping very well.(probably just jynxed me) but the poor little guy is finally getting some relief.
TOmorrow is my u/s....hope they see the gender....a little...at least if it is outdoor plumbing or not so I know to proceed with my garage sale or not...

Jenna Yea for feeling the baby!!!!! I hear it in the doppler and I swear she is so close to the front of the uterus that I feel thumps now and then...so strange. WIth DS1 I felt and SAW a kick at 15 weeks. PLUS my uterus is about 2 inches or more above my pubic bone so finding the h/b is quite easy. FUN!!!

Off to enjoy my coffee before the troops get up!

Hey guys! Check out this site
http://www.whattoexpect.com/blogs/mylit ... the-secret
look at your first child's hairline...if straight across then the next is the same gender.if comes to a point, opposite gender.

All right for me so far....then this one is a boy....we will see!!!!!
