Hello 3rd trimester!

Well, here we are again!  I can't believe I'm already 28 weeks and this little girl will be here in 10 weeks or less.  Yikes!  Have I mentioned that she has no name??? I can count on one hand the number of conversations we've actually had about baby names.  I welcome any reasonable suggestions you may have (as long as they're not in the Top 10 most popular list from the past decade).

I go back to see my OB this week and then the perinatalogist next week.  At my last appointment, Baby Girl is healthy, weighs almost two pounds and is measuring a little above average. Each time I've had an ultrasound, the doctor or tech comments about how active she is and how much she moves around.  Same story, second baby! ;)  I've also started having Braxton Hicks (which I never experienced with Halley) for the past week or so.  It's not awful but I certainly wouldn't mind if they stopped.  I'm sleeping a little better than my first pregnancy (thanks to awesome new pillows from my mom) but the heartburn is still ever-present.  (Speaking of my mom, she was pregnant with triplets and claims she's never had heartburn in her life.  What gives?!)

(My computer is being difficult and won't let me crop the picture.)

And here is my Big Girl helping me make pancakes this morning.  I love that sweet face!

I love the name Havilah! Since you have already used Jane. :)

Natalie (Natty for short), because I loved the movie Adventures of Natty Gann, and have always loved that name. :-)
Eilish (means God is my oath), because I think it's a beautiful name -- pronounced "eye-lish".

You look so cute!!! Can't wait to meet this sweet girl, no matter what her name is. As for the heartburn -- oh my. We were ordering Tums in huge packages from Amazon. DIdn't matter what I ate, it was constant! Yuck!

We struggled with names this time too. Maybe because we already had two girls. We had our boy name forever. This baby did not get a middle name until we were in recovery. I was stressed at about 34 weeks when we did not have a name. We finally got a first name about two weeks before. It will come. Hope all goes well and I can't wait to see pictures
