So...I'm either really brave or really stupid. I'm not quite sure. I'm 13 weeks pregnant with baby #3...and it was planned. I'm so far avoiding all my girls allergens...but I'm considering my options, and wondering if that's the best approach. I would really HATE for this baby to have a soy allergy, so I've cut down my soy intake and introduced organic meat into my diet (I was vegetarian). Anyways, I just wanted to tell everyone how crazy I am to start over with #3 :shock: .

Aww, three's a great number (magical even if you know your numbers). There is a special dynamic with three. It forces people to become diplomatic as alliances can be quickly formed or disolved.
I hope you have an easy pregnancy, a quick delivery and a healthy baby! :)

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

I noticed one of your girls is allergic to milk. If you are completly avoiding that while pregnant, make sure you are getting enough calcium -- let your OB know. Bones are too important.

Thanks everyone. I'd always wanted a big family, but it was so hard to imagine having more than 2, when the two I have are allergic to everything. Then I started hearing my biological clock ticking...had a little "I need to get on it" crisis last year when I turned 29...and just decided to go for it.

Yeah, I drink some soy milk and take supplements so I'm set. I've cut back on soy a bit...I usually drink lots and eat soy yogurt and soynut butter too.

Good news (sort of ) today, my little one got stung by a wasp (or bee...not totally sure) and she was FINE!!!

You know, if anyone has any girl name suggestions I would love to hear them...I'm a little stumped :? .

Do you have any relatives that you want to honour? Are there names from your cultural heritage that you like?
I like classic names that relate to many different religions. I find that these names cross barriers rather than create them.
My best advice is to not tell anybody (except the father, of course) what name you choose as someone will object. Oh, and concider what the initials will spell!

No and no. I used the girl names I like on my first 2 kids (first names and middle names). By the time my third child comes around of possibly the same **...all my favorite names are gone. I'm okay with telling people and having them object...if I like the name I really don't care if anyone else doesn't like it...and it helps to have others tell you possible nick names that you haven't thought of. I mean if a relative comes up with a nick name I HATE I might not want to go there by using that name anyways. I used to love the name Dylan for a boy...but then a relative said they'd call him "Dill" or "Dilly" which I hated...so I'd never use it now if I had a boy.

Currently I'm considering Kate, Jenna and Haley, but I'm still pretty undecided.

Wow - congrats!

If I had had a girl I would have called her Elliot, as it was my Nana's middle name (and her mother's last name). I likely would have changed it to Elle or Ellie for short.

Ariane (prounounced airy-ann) is also a lovely name - we hear it a bit around here since we live in a francophone neighbourhood.

Sadly, my clock stopped ticking lonnnnnng ago, so I will have to name little girls vicariously through others. ;)
