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.

    I totally stalked the last post to see what M names had been guessed. It must be an awesome name if it’s even better than the ones mentioned! Can’t wait to hear what it is!

    To match with Anders’ Scandi name heritage…Marit? I adore the name – and its meaning of “pearl” – and can totally see it on your lil’ one. It’s on my short list!

    Aha! I was wondering why you were making moves on Words With Friends around midnight. Mystery solved!

    I stand by my guess above, but I also love Merrill/Meryl, Malin, Maren, Matilda and Maude. Can’t wait for the big reveal :)

    So…something good? Well! I’m trying out for…(wait for it) ROLLER DERBY. I’m sort of crapping my pants over here. In an awesome way.

    I’m hereby sharing all of my girly M names (from my ridiculous list of 17! girl names), just for fun, and maybe just in case I totally win the prize (there is a prize, right? RIGHT?) of guessing your Baby Bean’s name.

    Mallory (which I already shared in the last post, I think)
    Marina (Mena)

    I love! talking about names.

    (“It’s the Baby Bean show!” might be the cutest thing ever, by the way.)

    Oh, I READ about the Derby, Miss Kerr. You ROCK THE CASBAH.

    Manon? Miette? And those energy surges are there to make sure you’re all prepared for the baby! Like, are you sure you’ve washed the onesies a dozen times and folded and re-folded them? No? Now get to it!

    Something good, huh? Well, I’m 38 weeks today and our OBGYN couldn’t REACH MY CERVIX IT’S SO HIGH AND CLOSED.

    My daughter will never arrive. EVER.

    Oh, we’re naming her Mia. Could that be your name, as well?

    My friend had a baby last night, a little girl named Piper. She was 2 weeks overdue.

    And my sister had a baby today, a little girl named Madeline!

    BABY GIRLS EVERYWHERE! And soon to be little MO!

    I have convinced myself as I read more and more name guesses that it’s Mercer Olivia. Probably not, but I’m just putting it out there again…..and I’m bored at work.

    i kept my daughter poppy’s name under strict lock and key until her birth… her grandparents were NOT happy about that one! heh.

    also, i gave birth at 37 weeks! so fun when i see people at that same stage; i always get nostalgic.

    hope the rest of your pregnancy is easy & relatively comfortable. can’t wait to see baby girl & find out her name!
