Good suggestions Karen. I have wondered what kind of names are popular among francophone Canada. We have a common last name so I would like to be a little bit uncommon on the first name.

Gwen, I actually thought of that I'd have to change my name. I considered changing it to saskmommyof2 1/2 for now...and saskmommyof3 in march. I'll wait for my ultrasound to make sure it's just one baby and I'm not saskmommyof2 2/2 before I make the first change.

Congratulations! Wishing you a happy and healthy pregnancy, and of course, an easy birth!

Congrats! That's great news, and I commend you for going ahead with your plans for a larger family despite what you've all been through with the girls' allergies.

I'm glad you posted about this, as we're planning to try for our 2nd in the next year or two, and I've already been wondering about what to do re: avoiding ds's allergens while pregnant.

p.s. congrats as well on your daughter's lack of reaction from the wasp/bee sting! :wink:

It definitely was a tough decision. There's always the "what if this ones got soy or wheat allergies" concern. Did any regular posters here continue to have kids after having one or two with allergies...and if yes, what happened with the next kids? I'm a bit undecided as to whether or not I should be avoiding my kids allergens...or if that makes me more likely to have a kid allergic to the stuff we can eat. I am taking probiotics this time...I'm hoping to have a good store of friendly bacteria to pass on to the baby...I was probably low on beneficial bacteria with my other 2, I was in the middle of an 8 year period of re-occuring bladder infections and many rounds of antibiotics...which suddenly ended once I started probiotics. I just don't know what else to do (or not do).

Cdnmama, I would suggest you get on it before you have to deal with your little guy and school too. Back when my oldest started preschool in 2004 (prior to our decision to homeschool) I was quite busy and overwhelmed trying to make that situation work out. I definitely could not have handled having a new baby at that time...and not sure how anyone could deal with those two major events at the same time. We were pretty sure we were done having kids when we had school to deal with.

Andrea MASG, how's it going with baby, from an allergic point of view? Any eczema, or other problems intorducing foods (if you're there yet), or problems with formula or foods passed through breastmilk?

You'll get a kick out of this:

The weirdest baby names ever?

A couple in New Zealand has got over the disappointment of having their first choice of name for their baby son turned down by naming him after a superhero instead.
New Zealand couple Pat and Sheena Wheaton were stunned when the government registry of births, deaths and marriages informed them that their original choice of 4REAL was unacceptable as it contained a digit. Undeterred, they eventually settled on the name Superman as an alternative.


The rest of the story (and more weird names) here:

Superman hey? I'm not sure which is worse superman, 4real or apple. Personally, I had liked the name Reese. I did not use it on my girls...BUT could you imagine if I would have used it on my poor daughter allergic to peanuts...that would have been aweful! Or what if Apple ends up being allergic to apples...then it wouldn't be so cute anymore Gwyneth.

I never thought of Anna being an undesirable name for an allergic person before...but I guess it would be too...thanks for the heads up.

Huh. Good point! I showed your message to hubby, and he's pretty pleased. :wink:
Definitely some food for thought... Thanks saskmommyof2(3)!

saskmommyof2: So far, no sign of allergy, thank goodness, though dd does have reflux, which may have some link with allergy.

What am I missing here? Other than the rhyme my brother used to tease me with -- I don't get this. And almost any name can be rhymed in a way to bug a person.

Andrea, congratulations. :) When was she born? I just got my first granddaughter last month -- after three sons and two grandson's, it's a lot of fun buying pink. :D

AnnaMarie, do you ever go by just Anna? Anna might be an undesirable name for an allergic person because of anna-phylaxis...and if you've ever had an "ana" reaction...you might not want it to be your name :wink: .

:lol: I cannot believe how dense I am!

In my *real* life I go by Anna. My name is AnnaMarie, but only my dad's family and my internet family call me by the full name. And, in posts, I usually refer to ana reactions -- yet I've never made that connection.

I'm tempted to legally change my last name to *Phylaxis* just because. :lol:

I guess it's not that bad if you've never even thought of it.
