So my son absolutely hates the name my husband and I are leaning towards for the baby - Derek. He says the name should start with a J like his. Thoughts? May 06 - 8

heather727 Well, my son's name IS Jared, so Jarek would be a little too close... LOL We do like Jacob however it is SO popular (#1 for almost a decade now) and we do not want our son to have to be numbered at school (Jacobe #1 and Jacab #2 sit down please!) I do like Jack, but to me it's a nickname not a 'real' name and Jackson and Jonathan aren't faves of mine (and both are a bit too popular too). I think the kid is just going to have to live with a little brother named Derek!

Sheaby I agree with thanking him for his input and interest, but just explain that this decision is best left up to mom and dad.  Maybe he can help with the decor of the nursery, or pick out a special "first" toy for his baby brother??

Shannon79 What we did for Preston was we picked his first name and gave Reilly a list of names so he could pick Preston's middle name. Maybe that's something you can do too. We found it worked great

Heather3418 It's so great to hear from you, Heather.  I'm sorry to bother you with my previous note, but I am natural born worrier.  I totally understand how busy you are, but glad to hear that you are okay.  So Monday is the day, huh?  Do you know if your cervix has shown any signs of softening or dilating?  That would certainly help the induction go more quickly.  Especially since this is your third baby.  I am very excited for you, your DH and your kids.  Especially new baby, Xavier.  I have prayed for you and your upcoming delivery, that it all goes quickly and smoothly for you and baby.  I have faith that you are going to do a great job, giving birth to this new and very special baby boy.  God Bless you, Heather.  Your miracle baby boy is about to arrive.  Sends goosebumps up and down my arms.  I'm so happy for you.  Big, gentle Grandmotherly Hugs to a very special friend and woman.

Heather3418 Best of luck tomorrow, with the birth of your new son, Xavier.  I wonder if you will get any sleep tonight.  Such excitement, Heather.  When you feel up to it after having the baby, I hope you will be able to post and let us know what he weighed.  Of course, his birth story can wait until you are back and home and settled in.  At least I am hoping that you won't mind sharing your birth story.  We are all so excited for you and DH to hold your baby boy, that you waited so patiently for.  Congratulations in advance.  I have faith that everything will go quickly for you.  Big Motherly Hugs and lots of love to you and your family.

Ultrasound today showed Xavier to be 8lb 15oz already!! They have scheduled me for another ultrasound and NST for Monday. Dr definitely doesn't want me to go past my due date. Induction might be next week. Jul 31 - 9

Heather3418 Heather, is that a plus/minus weight or do they really think that Xavier is really that big?  My doctor would be telling me that I wouldn't have any trouble having that big of a baby.  He said I had plenty of room, since my 8 pd. 7 oz. boy came "flying" out with less than one push.  I swear I am telling you the truth.  The intern that was there to "catch" the baby, was warned by my OB that she should get ready, because "this one was going to be like catching a flying football."  With this being your third baby, I don't forsee any trouble for you, either.

heather727 The measurments that they took put him at 8 lb 15 oz but she did caveat that the bigger the baby is the less accurate the weight estimate is. We'll see what Monday's appointment brings!

Heather3418 Hi Heather, how are your contractions going?  Getting any more frequent?  I have this feeling that the doctor maybe internally check you on Monday (maybe) and if he finds you are dilating, he MAY put you in the hospital to be induced.  If you are still having alot of contractions, who knows, you may go on your own very soon.  Have to get those antibiotics in you before you deliver, sweetheart, so if you get the feeling you are in labor and going to stay in labor, by all means, get to the hospital.  I am SO excited for the birth of your precious son, Tommy.  Your avatar picture, by the way, is absolutely stunning.  You are a very beautiful woman, Heather.  Hang in there, sweetheart.  Just a few more days, until you get to hold that precious little boy you've waited so long for.  Big Motherly Hugs and much friendship love.
