What did I do, to get my mind stuck on you.  
Thank you to everyone who left well wishes on my last entry. <3 It means a lot to me.

The past few days has been wildly uneventful, as suspected. Talleulah has been keeping me company and so has my knitting but that can only occupy me for so long or before I get wicked hand cramps. Not to mention we don't have cable and I'm out of shows to watch on Netflix! So I've restarted Doctor Who. I'm still on the fence between Nine and Ten being my favorite Doctor - Nine is wonderfully sassy and Ten is just... Ten. I was never a huge fan of Eleven, he just seems like the new kid who's trying way too hard to fit in with the hipster crowd at school. Plus Moffat. I'm sort of hoping they bring back Jack for season 8, I really miss him. I also can't decide between Rose Tyler or the Ponds as my favorite companion(s)! I'm leaning towards Rose though. She's too awesome to be 2nd place.

The other afternoon my husband surprised me by coming home with a few books because he felt sorry for me having to be stuck at home until the Bean makes her appearance. He brought me Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Leviathan and I was pretty underwhelmed with the ending. I think I was suspecting some life-altering twist near the end like Looking For Alaska and The Fault In Our Stars but it wasn't there. It was still a pretty good read, though. He also brought Divergent by Veronica Roth which I'm excited to start because the movie trailer looks interesting and everyone's been talking about it. I have pretty high hopes for it.

I haven't had a single contraction since I went to the hospital! There's good news as well, though she's been as active as ever. Usually when Sam is around and she hears his voice - it warms me that she knows her daddy. We're still undecided on a name. For the longest time I loved the name Amelia (not DW inspired, I promise) and he really liked Lucy but I saw on reddit that someone named their little girl Penelope and I really like that too. :| It's hard to choose a name for another little person who's going to be stuck it with forever.

My middle name is Lucy, and it's also my sister's first name. I was three when she was born and I chose her name, naming her after myself XD Amelia is a lovely name, I like Amelie too. And Penelope is nice, especially because Penny is really cute. I guess the sensible thing to do is have a shortlist (or even a long list!) prepared and then see what suits her when she's born!

Yeah, I might have to just wait until she's born. I think I'm gonna keep a list of names that we like. :)

Picking names is hard. I've always had my names picked early (because I get a little OCD about it) & then have a freak out about it being the right name. Luckily, my girls fit their names very well. I like all of the names you have picked! The good thing is that nothing is set in stone until you meet her. So, if you meet her and it just doesn't fit, you can pick something that does!

Have you read the other John Green books? I have them all & can email them to you if you would like. :) I love him. Will Grayson, Will Grayson wasn't my favorite either. It felt like there was something missing. I'm not sure what though.

I wanted a name early so we didn't have to call her Little One or what I've been calling her, Bean. I think though, once we meet her a name will just click. I'm going to start keeping a list of names we like.

I've only read The Fault In Our Stars and Looking For Alaska and I really really loved those so I was excited to read Will Grayson, Will Grayson! Something was definitely missing though. You have all his books in pdf?? I'd love to read the rest of them! I've been scared to commit to buying in case I don't like them, haha. My email is featherandholly@gmail.com. Thanks!

Yes! My friend is obsessed with him (and all books really) and sent them to me. I need to convert them from mobi to pdf but I will get that done as soon as I get my heathens to nap.

We have a name and I still call him the boy or the baby. We called the baby (well, middle) k2 until she was born. Even though I love the names, I don't want to get too stuck on them.in case we meet him & I'm like NOPE. He is not an Ezekiel!

I'm so practical. I picked my daughter's name by imagining what it would look like on a resume.

Nine is my favorite Doctor (but Ten's okay)and Rose is my fave companion.

I have Will Grayson, Will Grayson sitting on my shelf but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet :)

I read a story in the paper a few weeks ago where parents had named their son Jedi. Their last name was Knight. I don't think the poor kid's gonna be too happy about that in a few decades.

My sister picked a name for her son as soon as she found out it was a boy, and we've been calling him that ever since. She didn't want to call him "the baby" or something like that.

Oh that poor kid. D:

Oh my gosh, my favorite name in the whole entire world is Lucy--I plan on naming my daughter Lucy Madeline, haha. Penelope and Amelia are adorable as well! It's so sweet that she obviously knows her father! I'm so excited for you!

Also, I too cannot decide between Nine and Ten, they both are just so good. Moffat ruined Eleven, as he ruined the show, but hopefully with Peter Capaldi and his sassiness, it'll get better!

I've warmed to Lucy but I just can't pick one between all three. I actually cried the first time she kicked his hand when he put it on my stomach because I'm silly and I'm already a crier even without the hormones. :P

I'm so looking forward to Peter Capaldi! I think it'll be a Nine revisit with all the sass he has, I can't wait. :D
currentscarryou on February 26th, 2014 12:43 am (UTC)
Maybe it'll click when you see her! Oh god, I would cry too, I have a feeling when I'm pregnant I'm going to cry all the time. That or just be overly sassy, haha.

Yes! They better not suppress the sass.
Heatheraverdepois on February 26th, 2014 01:10 am (UTC)
I've lost count of how many times I've cried during this pregnancy, honestly. A lot of times have been over food, a lot of times have been over really sweet things that have happened, like feeling her kick in general for the first time or the time I woke up in the middle of the night and my husband was dead asleep with both hands plastered to my belly. XD True story. I've definitely had my sassy moments too, however.

I think it'll click when I see her for the first time. I can't wait.

Nine is definitely my favorite doctor! He's so sassy and emotional and fantastic. I wish he would have done more than one season. I'm really excited for Capaldi, because he seems he might be a sassy and emotional doctor as well!

Will Grayson, Will Grayson does have a somewhat underwhelming ending! I really enjoyed reading it, but the ending was slightly disappointing. Divergent does NOT disappoint, though!
