Let's have some fun! I've been soooo excited for this ultrasound, and because we're about to move to our dream home!


Do you think it's a boy or a girl? (I'll tell you which later this week!)

Which gender would you prefer for your first child?

What are your favorite and least favorite names?

I think it's a girl, but hoping for a boy. Seems like it would be better to have an older brother than a sister. Then again, it would be the first girl grandchild on both sides of the family, and my MIL only had sons - so a girl would be very welcome!

My favorite girl names are Katherine, Ava, and Emeline. I don't really have favorite boy names yet, they don't seem as fun to pick (but we do have a little list). Damien is probably my least favorite name - wasn't that the name of the demon child in those scary movies?

I'd have to see your belly to make an educated guess. I've never been wrong. But I will say it is a girl.

I didn't care what my child was so long as my child was healthy. There were a couple of health scares so the gender really didn't matter.

Favorite boy name: Maurice

Favorite girl name: Aurora

Least favorite boy name: anything aiden, jaden, caden etc

Least favorite girl name: Britnney I dunno why.

Ooh, I'm going to guess boy, just because!

My favourite girl's names are: Isla, Catherine and Chloe, and for boys Stuart, Philip and George. We made a really long list for girls when we were choosing and I had like 20 girls names, but not as many boy names, like you say maybe they are less fun to pick!

[–]fallen_angel_81 2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

My Step Daughter is named Isla 😊

[–]Kittenkajira[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

That's a pretty name. We have Ava and Eva on the list as well. The shorter names ending with -a all have a nice sound to them.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Ava

My niece is named Ava. We call her Ava doll. Runs right off the tongue.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (5 children) | Copy Link

YAY!!!!! I think you're having a boy first (or at least I really really hope it's a boy) and I also want to have a boy first. When it comes to names, I prefer older, traditional, and Western but not too common. All the boy names I was previously a fan of I don't like anymore, but the girl names I'm really liking are Elise, Beatrice, and Sloane.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Sloane

That is a really interesting name!

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Isn't it? I kind of wish it was my name sometimes but Camille is awesome as well.

[–]Kittenkajira[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

Elise is one of the names on our list! :)

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Yay! Just thought of a boy's name that I like and would name my son - Sawyer. All the other names I liked M said were gay or dumb so he probably won't like this one either haha

Edit: He's not a fan :(

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

haha love the update. I said if I ever had anymore kids we would name them something ridiculous because it would never happen and they would be miracle babies. Goku and Apostolica. Boy and girl respectively. Also, Sawyer was one of the characters from lost. his shoulders were weird so I concur with M. :D

[–]MrsLabRat 2 points3 points  (5 children) | Copy Link

Congrats :-) Took me so freaking long to get pregnant I didn't so much care. In any case, it's a boy and he needs to stop shoving on my cervix right now if I have any hope of making it through the walk to work today. Husband and I are both the oldest in our families, so I can see the upsides of either being the oldest. Name choice has been an issue (different country/language between his side of the family and mine - we're trying to limit it to things both sides can say and letters that can easily go on either set of documents), but we have a few options.

Try r/namenerds for help

Thanks for the recommendation!

[–]MemoirsofaWife26 | Married 5 years 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy Link

I'm also having a boy! And he's a low rider, as I tell my husband. He feels like he could fall out at any moment!

[–]MrsLabRat 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

I keep saying this kiddo is high and low to the extent he might as well be one of these guys, but when he's down.... Damn.

[–]MemoirsofaWife26 | Married 5 years 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Haha that's a pretty accurate! I found out today (I got the cutest u/s pictures! :D) that he's head down and was turning around throughout the whole appointment. He was cracking up the tech with his antics!

[–]blushinglillyMarried 5 ys, Early 30s 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

I was once told that if you feel pretty ill during your pregnancy it's a boy, if you feel OK it's a girl. It's held true in my family.

Whatever happens wishing you the best of luck with it all!

[–]Kittenkajira[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I've been feeling good, so maybe it's a girl!

[–]QueenBee126 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Least favorite names: STRIPPER NAMES Ryker, Kaden, anything ending with -lynne (or God forbid another variation with even more letters)

I HATE IT, UGH SO TACKY

I think it's a little boy. So excited for you!

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

or God forbid another variation with even more letters

My friend is super preggers right now and is naming the baby Madison. However, not with that spelling. They haven't agreed to how to spell it yet. So whenever I text her to ask how she's doing I always exaggerate the name and add more letters to it. haha. Right now we are at Madyssynne. You just reminded me about that. haha

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

I'll second you - mommas seem to have an instinct about these thing, I'll bet you have a girl :)

[–]Kittenkajira[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Haha, we'll see! I'm not sure my instinct is right, because the website I use to look at the pregnancy week-by-week is always using female pronouns. Might have gotten it in my head that way.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I'm going with girl! I think it's a girl. :)

I want a girl first, and I have this feeling that's all we'll have. Thankfully, I have lots of girl names I love - Abigail, Lucille, Rachel, Evelyn, Caroline, Lydia, so many more lol

We love the Celtic/Welsh names as well. One of the girl names on the list is Coira, and for a boy Brennan.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Brennan is nice! I have a friend who's son's name is Bowen which I really like!

[–]fallen_angel_81 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I guess girl 😊 I had my Daughter first (Bethany, 18) and then my Son (Kian, 15)

I like Tallulah for a girl and Charlie for a boy.

Hope the rest of your pregnancy goes well.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Congratulations!!!!

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

Congrats! I'm a little over a month from having my first! I was hoping for a boy, but also had a feeling it was a boy. Was very glad I was right!

Names I love for boys: Ethan, Liam, Evan, Samuel

For girls: Katherine/Kathryn, Charlotte, Avery

Enjoy this special time! When we found out it was a boy, I celebrated with the beefiest, cheesiest cheesesteak I could find :)

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Samuel

One of the books I"m reading now the bad guy is named Sammael. I thought it was a very interesting twist on the name.

[–]Kittenkajira[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

I think I've read that series :P

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I think it's a girl! I have two girls and they are the best! I like uncommon but easily pronounced names. I hate youniqe spelling.

Noo I love the name Thomas! Wouldn't use it myself but its such a good boy's name, so classic.

[–]Kittenkajira[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

For food cravings it's mainly been carb type foods and red meat. The whole pickle craving thing lasted for like a week, then I was over it.

my husband would definitely be more in his element with a boy, doing boy stuff together.

Yeah, this would be nice. :) My husband would love to have a little Daddy's girl, so a girl would be nice as well.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
