I like big bellies and I can't deny

We finally got a mirror for our room, it is massive. I was very surprised to find out how fetching I'm finding my enormous belly at the moment. Having not really had a mirror for a year or so, I was expecting the worst, but really, it is quite magnificent. Very large, very wriggly, very uncomfortable, and very miraculous. You'd think that by the third child you'd be over all this wonderment, but I think the first two pregnancies were more full of nervousness and exhaustedness. I just can't believe this one is happening.

We've got no ideas for names and all, so any contributions are very welcome. Poor nameless baby.

Beautiful weekend, just lovely. I'm a bit blissed out today, in case you didn't notice. The weekend was great, I barely worked, got some lovely first birthday balloons and fairy bread from Anne, ate liquorice, went on a picnic, started a vege garden, bought some baby shizz (including the CUTEST NAPPIES EVER), got some new gruts, told Finn what "gruts" means, you know, had fun and laughed at the kids bum jokes, even though I should've been disapproving. Hung loose basically.

I always loved my firm, preggie belly too - and felt a little 'empty' and sad afterwards with my 'jelly belly'! So great to hear you loving your pregnancy so much and enjoying a nice weekend.

Names... so hard - perhaps bubs will pop out with a suggestion!

Span the classes with Bella-Ella (middle-class) Tighlah (working class) Destinee (teen mum).

heatherg: Those last 3 names will mean that in 20 years time, Martha's daughter will meet some cute boy and be heartbroken when he says, "Oh, Catherine/Louise/Jennifer - that's my mum's name!"

I looked up "gruts" and still don't know what it means.

Here is an interesting article on social class and baby names...give your daughter a fighting chance in this cruel cruel world!

I dreamed I gave birth to a baby girl named Hobbie. The midwife named her. Feel free to steal...

Go all WAG-like and call her Chardonnay.

Tui, Betty (named Elizabeth but called Betty, Kezia, Heloise, Holly (appropriate for Christmas baby)... I had two boys, and no more kids for me, so these were my favourites.
