36 week update

here i am on sunday at 36 weeks!

things have been pretty uncomfortable lately. i've had quite a few braxton hicks contractions and basically there's not enough room in the tummy for baby sparks....sorry little one. baby s. gets the hiccups a few times a day (i don't think p ever had the hiccups, but i don't have a great memory.) i am very excited to meet this little girl. also, naming this baby is becoming a little messy. we have a few very good options, but we are open for name suggestions... if you have one, comment! we would love to have a little advice in this department

yesterday i went to see dr. b. & things are moving along well. she said that she thinks she'll see me next week, but not the week after that... meaning i would have a baby before that! yikes. i have to admit that it freaked me out to hear it like that. i have a number of things that i would like to do around the house to prepare and i just don't feel mentally ready for baby s to arrive in less than 2 weeks. it also REALLY made me hope that they don't pick bryan in jury selection today. if he is picked the trial he is on will be a long one (at least 3 weeks) and if baby comes when dr. b predicts, then i won't have a husband to help...  i am not taking it all too seriously, because baby having is a fairly unpredictable business.


  1. i'm pretty sure that your husband can get out of jury duty if he submits a note from your ob that you are due any day. (i got out of it w/ a note from my midwife when i was like 36 weeks...)
    and how bout the name Ruby? I love that name and I think it sounds cute with sparks and with penelope.... :)

  2. I have always been a fan of Amelia :)

  3. I really like the name Haven. It's an oldie that you never hear anymore. It's old and romantic sounding, can't beat it for a girl.

  4. Alice, Violet, Matilda, Meredith, Jaedyn, Abbrielle, Rosalee. A few of my favourites. Good luck!

  5. Shemsy, Noé, Milú, Olivia, Feau, Emmy, Livvy, Mae, Ella. These are my favourites. You look great!

  6. I stand for Olivia, Maria, Martina, and Emma, I think they sound great with Sparks.

    Congratulations, and good luck!

  7. You are so beautiful! I am so excited for you to have another sweet baby. Your penelope is so adorable I can't get over it! Good luck with everything!!

  8. WOO HOO!! I'm so excited for you! I hope everything goes well.

    Plus, you look SO cute. As usual!

  9. amazing how good you look in leggings! not too many pregnant woman can pull that off.

    i had so much fun naming my girls. i would almost have another, just so i could name her. i would name her betsy. i already have a ruby and a ginger. i also love summer, daisy, and lucy.

    penelope is such an awesome name, i remember the pressure of trying to come up with an equally awesome name as the first. i can't wait to hear what you come up with.

    how exciting!!

  10. I like the Ruby suggestions...but you probably already knew that. I am still standing by Phoebe as my best suggestion for you. And you are a hot pregnant mama! :)
