37 Weeks — The Name Remains a Mystery!

*While many of you guessed the middle name correctly, I must say that no one guessed MO’s first name in the comments, on Twitter or in the emails I received. BWAHAHAAAAA, it is a mystery of epic proportions! I HOLD THE POWER.

*My back labor has eased up substantially, which is good and bad. Good? Well, obviously, I feel better. Bad? Why in the hell did I pack my hospital bag? I mean, the baby is Never Going to ARRIIIIIIIIIVE. Let’s all feel sorry for me right now.

*We had a 37-week ultrasound yesterday and for a brief, fleeting moment, MO pulled her hands out of her mouth to show us her little profile. Wito was in the room with us and yelled, “It’s the Baby Bean show!!” (We also call her Baby Bean around the house. Whoorlita, MO, Baby Bean…we welcome confusion.) Here she is:

Annnnnd, hands back in mouth.

*I am having these massive energy spurts at 11pm while everyone else snoozes in our dark house. Last night, I poked around Wito’s room for a good 15 minutes while he slept until I realized I was being sort of creepy.

*We are in the thick of June Gloom out here, which is only making my antsy mood worse. Can’t sleep! Baby will never come! Restless legs! The world is ending!

Tell me something good. I am seriously funkafied right now.

    Morgan! Minerva! Macy! Mara! Mallory! Marlys! (I did not check to see if these were already guessed, but I’m pretty sure I didn’t guess them yet.)

    Too bad it’s not Molly – I like my name, even though I often hear that people have named their pets (dogs, cats, birds, and once, a donkey) Molly.

    congrats on the new baby!

    haha your posts always make me laugh. I’ve been getting weird energy spurts around 11 too…Hmmm… I don’t think it means I’m 37 weeks preggers though.

    Something good, something good…ok!

    If that is a picture of your belly at 37 weeks, you are TINY. I was that big at like 30 weeks. And is that a wedding band? Again, TINY.

    Maisy? Marleigh? Melba?

    Maeve, Maven, Makena, Mara

    This mystery is keeping me up at night and I don’t have a kid’s room to creep around in!!

    Can’t wait for the big reveal. Did you get your Toms yet??

    I went to a sweeeet jewelry showing on Sunday and am giving a piece away tomorrow. Would look great on you. Just sayin. Her Majesty might want it in a few years too…:)

    I can’t wait for the big reveal. I want to know her name!

    I can’t help you on the defunkifying though, sadly, as I am in a rather funky place myself (the bad kind).

    I’m sorry, Sizz. :( I wish we could hang out and defunkify together.

    I had a dream that you named her Sage. And it just felt right. Clearly that doesn’t start with an M.

    My grandmother’s middle name is Olivette. I’m hoping you went with Olivia. Or Owen.

    Matilda Owen James

    I think it has a nice ring to it.

    I’m going to guess Myrna for a first name. Or maybe Maura. Or Moira. Or Mamie. Or Maeve. Or Maren. Or Mael. Okay, I’m stopping now. There are so many good M names!

    Ok so after going back and reading all the comments on the other post I can see that my pick is not correct. That’s fine. I’ll just tuck that name away for someone else.

    There were a lot of M names mentioned. Hard to think of one that wasn’t.

    Michael? But maybe spelled Mykel or something like that.

    I’m sure whatever it is, it’s lovely.

    I’m going to go ahead and guess my own unusual name: Mylène, pronounced like this: http://tinyurl.com/cuh4zw
