Congratulations! Such healthy happy news....um, how does Betsie sound? LOL :biglaugh:
My new fave girl name is Amelia...
02-09-2005, 04:00 PM
I like the old standards, like Mary, Elizabeth, Katherine, Marie, etc., etc.
(Of course Donna is one of the old standards, too!)
02-10-2005, 02:05 AM
congrats how exciting..
How wonderful. I like Sarah, Elizabeth, Victoria, Anne, I guess the more traditional names also.
02-10-2005, 04:28 AM
Congrats! Girls are a blast. I'm glad she is doing well. I like the name Lindsey, but please don't stick with my horrible combo, Barbara Jean. Yuck :) !
Congrats!! I have two daughters and they are the lights of my life! I also like the old fashioned names, my daughters are Jacqueline and Madeline. It's also nice to use long names that they can shorten if they choose. Jacqueline goes by Jackie, but Madeline likes using Madeline instead of Maddie.
02-10-2005, 05:37 AM
My daughters are Bayleigh and Logan. If this third baby had been a girl, He would have been a Lilly or a Molly!!! I guess Colten will have to do. Have fun.
02-10-2005, 05:45 AM
Pink pink pink!!! What fabulous news! I know you're floating high especially now that you've gotten assurance that she's doing great! There are some really great baby name books at major book stores that list both the name as well as what the name means, which is nice. It's so fun to look through at all the possibilities! Let us know when you choose one!
02-10-2005, 06:21 AM
I love all the name suggestions. Lilly is my personal favorite right now, but my six year old just gave this lovely name to her rat. So, I can't really use it, but you can!
02-10-2005, 07:08 AM
Congrats! I know you are excited. I have 2 boys, don't know anything about girls except for my nieces and they live in Houston. My friend just found out that her next grandbaby is a girl, so everyone is buying pink stuff. (she has 2 grandsons and she said she is ready for a girl!)
02-10-2005, 12:12 PM
thanks everyone and yes i am really relieved to know that right now she is ok...and i am hanging in there with my IC acting up too....if only i could just sleep i am exhausted.....
But i like alot of those suggestions.....Especially Lindsey....i also like grace or gracie....its a big decision to make.....I also like unusual names like my first daughter her name is Ashton.....so I am just going to keep looking until something really POPS out at me.....
thanks so much !!
02-10-2005, 02:14 PM
Just remember our first favorite on the list.........it was Johnna Shae then Lilly MOlly etc
02-10-2005, 02:23 PM
If I have a daughter some day, I love the names Rachel and Sarah, and I love the name Autumn. I was helping a friend pick out baby names, and we came up with some not so common ones. With the exception of Rachel and Sarah, I don't like normal names. It comes from being one of 1,000 Jessica's in my classes.
Hugs and congrats,
02-11-2005, 01:47 AM
I love the names:
I especially love the name Bastienne Adelle Mona Lisa Sage but most people think I'm crazy lol!
02-11-2005, 04:19 AM
Thanks i will keep all of those names in mind............its a harder decision than i thought it would be.........lol
02-11-2005, 03:31 PM
CONGRATS!!! I'm been big on "E" names lately...Emma, Ella, Eliza...
02-13-2005, 07:12 AM
i go on the 28th for an ultra sound and i should be able to tell what the sex of the baby is, but tony and i want to be susprised!!!!! congrats.
02-14-2005, 07:59 AM
So great to hear you are both doing well. We are hoping for another girl too.
Good luck finding the perfect name.
03-02-2005, 12:07 PM
Congrats I am so happy for you Girls are so sweet. I have a daughter named Jessie Lynn
03-19-2005, 01:20 AM
WOW I havent been around for a while & am so pleased to here you are having a little girl. Although I must warn you that during my pregnacy I was told four times I was having a girl ( all different DR's) until my last scan at 37 weeks & I took one look & said that's a boy isn't it?? I was completely heart broken for a few day's as I had my heart set on a girl..Anyway i had to take all my pink stuff back & change it for blue... Now I wouldn't change my blue, trucks & trains for anything in the world. He is the joy of my life. I named my son Cohen William. If it was a girl the name was Layla Grace. Both middle names are after my Grandparents which I thought was nice.
Anyway good luck It's such fun choosing names.
03-20-2005, 12:24 PM
AH thanks andrea...........
I too am a little worried about the ultrasound being right.......but i will love the baby either way.......and like i said earlier i already have a boy name ready to go.....if it does turn out to be a boy his name will be mason ray........still not sure about a girls name though........so far i am leaning towards natalie ann.......Of course i am more worried about the actual delivery than anything else..........I keep hearing different things ...some say its better to have a c-section if you have IC and then i hear no its just as easy and ok to have it vaginally........so now i am confused......My uro thinks with my IC being so bad that a c-section might would work easier for me.......now i have to talk to my OB and see what he says.......anyone else have any experience with this??
03-20-2005, 12:50 PM
As long you & the baby are both healthy that is the main thing. Mason I love that name. I only ever planned on having one child due to my IC I wouldn't be well enough to look after any more. I don't like the face the Cohen is going to be an only child but that's the way it is. If I did have another & was a boy it would be a Mason for sure. ( I like to dream about these things) How many weeks are you now? Yeh & just be carefull that there isn't any little packages hidden in those scans HA HA! As I said Cohen had his hidden for 37 weeks. Funnily enough the lady beside me in the hospital aslo was told she was having a girl & it was a boy, I'm glad I found out before the delivery.
I was going to try & have a natural birth but was being induced at 38 weeks as the pressure was getting too much. I was lucky though & felt the best I had in years whilst pregnant, just more pressure, but pain wise good! Anyway I went into to hospital at 7am on a Thursday & by 8om on the Friday they decided to give me a C-Section, although it was both the DR's & my choice. Cohen was born at 11.34pm Friday.
I was just too tired by then to go any further. I regrete not being able to have a natural birth & felt like a bit of a failaur for a long time after, but that's just me being silly, I know that at the time it was the best decision. I know we are all different & I guess we just have to see how we are feeling later in the pregnancy, but it is good to know both sides of things. If you have any question I could try & answer them for you.
P.S Natalie is also my best friends name so I like both your choices so far.

How did you heal from your c section? I had three children vaginally and refuse to do it again. I will not put all that pressure on my bladder again. It killed me. With my last son, I was in excruciating pain for about two weeks with bladder pain and horrible hemoroids. I intend on demanding a c-section. Let me know if you decide on a c section or vaginal birth. I am very curious to hear how other icers make this decision.
Layla Grace, I absolutely love it!
03-21-2005, 09:59 AM
Thanks so much...........i am right around 23 wks i think......i do better if i just count months........i am five months for sure. So how did you do with your c-section?? I know how bad my bladder got after i had ashton 16 years ago so the last four years my bladder has been a constant enemy and i just don't know if it can hold out for another vaginal delievery but my uro said i had to be careful who did my c-section too........so i don't know........how did your bladder hold up to the cutting and stuff afterwards?? if you don't mind me asking ??
03-21-2005, 02:08 PM
I hate to burst anyones bubble about c-sections. I had 3 of them and then I got the irritable bladder, which is now being questioned as alot of the bladder problems.. I would strongly discourage it. During a csection, your organs are moved and misplaced. Literally, your uterus, bladder, and other organs are moved a bit and it takes much longer to heal. My Dr.s explanation is that the organs are not put in the exact spot they came from so it takes them a bit to get used to thier new home...so needless to say, when you go to the bathroom, it is very painful and feels as if your bladder is falling out for about 2 weeks. I do know if 3 other women who all have developed some type of bladder probelm due to c-sections. THis was a risk my dr. also discussed with me when telling me I would have to have a c.When I first had mine, going to the bathroom was the most painful experience. It topped a uti by 100%. The catheritization alone for 24hrs is also very irritating..you must be cathed a few hours pior to your c and then mine were kept in for 18-24hrs... The scar tissue that develops from the c-section eventually gets worse and for me, I had to have it cleaned out and scraped on number 3 ...I was told no more children due to the damage of some of my organs. My liver and kidneys shut down..so, I really hope you think 2x about the csections. A vaginal delivery is much easier on the body than a csection and it is much better for the child. Please look into it before making the decision that is best for you..Best of luck

I do agree that I would have prefered to have a natural birth but it just was not going to happen for me. The DR did warn me that along with my IC pain & recovering from the C-Section may be alot to handle, all I knew at the time was that I was just to tired & in so much pain after the first 24 hours of labor that I couldn't go any further. I wasn't told anything about body parts & so forth being moved around during the OP,but nor did I ask so I carn't help you on that one. I will have to say that I recovered alot better than what I expected & never had any real problems getting around afterward, mind you I did have wonderful help from my family ( we stayed with my parents for the first week or so, as we lived 1hr from the hopsital) Of course I was sore & things were very tender for a long time, but not to the point where I was invalid in any way & absoultly nothing compared to the pain of IC. As I had said my IC symptoms were the best I had been in years whilst I was pregnant so I was luckly in that way, if my IC had been at it's worst mabey things would have been very different. One thing i have noticed since is that I have had more trouble with my bowels ( really bad stomach cramps) this dosen't happen all the time but can be a real pain (HA HA ) when it does.
All in all things were OK. Just know both of your options & see what you own body tells you.
Andrea. :flower: :flower:

I had my frist on vaginally and the second one with a C-section becuase they were twins. Now that we are pregnant again I was leaning towards another C-section but then have really been thinking alot that maybe I will just go the natural way again. I have so many stomach problems already that I don't know if my body can handle another another surgery and scar. I had my gall bladder removed and that was not an easy recovery and the a month later I had a 12x6 hernia repair that actually happened from the C-section because of the way I was stitched up after the C-section. That hernia repair was to be same day surgery but I was in the hospital for 3 day. Every body is differnet and I hope you can find the best way for you. In the end either way will be worth it because of the baby.
03-22-2005, 04:22 AM
Gloria congrats on the baby girl. They can be a joy and a handful. My baby girl turns 12 this year. I named her Taylor Marie. Thought at the time she have a unusal name HAH lol. So many other Taylor's around. Then 2 yrs later had a boy named him Cody Ryon. Knew right away I wanted a Cody spelled his middle name different for him to stand out. I cant say either way with the IC and delivery, but I will give you my story like the other dont want to burst bubbles on C-section. I had my daughter vaginally but b/c I was so tired and could not push her out the nurses pushed while the dr cut. So needless to say I ended up with 3rd lacerations down there. Okay 2 yrs later had to have c-section with my son. Due to placenta previa knew ahead of time had to have. But do to some stupid anthesia dr when they came and did my epidural the missed the right spot. So when the put the medicine in to test my toes only the small amount of meds and b/c of where the epidural went I was temporaily paralized from the neck down so they had to get me in right away ASAP and get him out. Now not sure if it was from the cath (never had one before and had to leave in for 24 hrs b/c I had to lay flat after him for that long) or from the c-section being done so fast but 6 wks later I started having IC symptoms. Like some one said earlier all of your organs are moved around for them to get to the baby. Your bladder is one of them...Now I believe I got my IC from having the C-section b/c I never had problems before that. All my problems started 6 weeks later. I was not able to pee. Said I had a kidney stone but it never showed up on the IVP. I would have had to have the c-section either way it was not a choose for me as if I went into labor with cody I could have bleed to death and he could have died. But if I had to choose between natural and c-section for IC only I would choose the vaginal...less trauma to you and your bladder. Your bladder is already screwed up it does not need to be traumizted any further. Although I consider both of my childrens birth horrible. With my daughter when I came in I was on 2 cm dilated and then hour later I was at 4 but they refused to give me a epidural until I was 5. Then 1 hour later when they checked me I was at 7 and when I finally got it it did not work. I was only in labor 7 hours with her and was totally worn out by the time she got here and I tore so bad but I would choose that way again if I could have more kids. Anyways dont want to rain on your parade but only you, the dad and doctor can choose which way is best for you...Blessing on the child from above and best of luck to you
03-22-2005, 04:27 AM
Oh by the way on the moving of organs and stuff with the c-section, my ex-husband was in the room when I had him. I was so out of it. I dont even remember one thing after they put the epidural in I remember ex asking if I was okay and I remember the dr talking about fishing in a pond thats it. I dont even remember seeing my son the first time. But anyhoo he told me my organs where on top of my body and moved all around.
03-22-2005, 12:02 PM
I agree. Only you can decide what way to deliver. I also had alot of problems with my stomach after my c. As for the bladder, I had no symptoms for close to 5 years then boom, after the c...there it was. I told my gyno about it and he said, it will get back to normal in a few months,, well 3 years later ... I am still waiting..
03-22-2005, 03:54 PM
Congrats on your baby girl! I had my daughter in August and am sooooo enjoying the shopping for the little dresses and hair bows! I LOVE to just dress her up, even if we are just staying at home :) But after having two boys it's alot of fun.....lol My kids names are Devon Keith, Kwentin William, and Kadence Rae
03-23-2005, 09:51 AM
Wow, this is very confusing. I REALLY feel like my IC was brough ton by the 26 hours of labor and three hours of pushing I went through to bring my first child into this world. I had many doctors and nurses tell me the Dr. should have taken her by c-section hours earlier. She had a vaccuum on her head for an hour, and when I was recouping I had nurses come in because the other nurses told them how horrible I looked "down there". I was a total freak show. It was absolutely the worst experience of my life. When she came out my husband thought she was dead. I have never been the same since. The other two were better, but they definately exacerbated the problem. I really thought a c-section would be better on my body. Better for my bladder, and the horrible unspoken prblem of hemmoroids from hell.
I don't remember who it was who had 3 c-sections, but was it that bad after the first one? I intend this to be my first and only.
Your experiences are very helpful in making my decision.
03-23-2005, 12:43 PM
THANKS SO MUCH!! thanks so much for everyone's input...........I still don't know what to do..........I guess i should just start praying and i know for sure that GOD will lead me to the right decesion there.......its just so scary ........and yes my bladder is already very much screwed up.......so i dont know if moving it around will help any.........surely if i can have it naturally my body will heal itself eventually?? i hope.........i don't know........I just wish i had a normal bladder.........but don't we all............
thanks again all of you i do so appriciate your stories and advice..........
03-23-2005, 01:12 PM
Congrats on your baby girl. You will do the right thing for you when the time comes. Try not to get too anxiuos about it now. Just dwell on the wonderful little creature that is about to come into the world.
My baby girl, Hilary Pamela, is 16 now. Cliched, I know, but it does go so fast. And as for frilly pink things, don't get your hopes up just yet. Hillz wouldn't have a bar of dresses, ribbons and bows pink things or lace.
Another reason I was so delighted she made her deb last week, to see her in a white gown carrying yellow roses made me cry.
Rosalie ( I like my name too, I had a clever mum!)
