Thanks Sandi... I miss it here. I want to lose weight, but I can't!!! UGH! I've put on about 40 pounds already and I am just a little over 1/2 way there. The baby is growing nicely and we are just two extrememly estatic soon to be parents. I am so happy. I'll be sure to let you all know what the results are tomorrow... boy or girl!!

Well, Michael is one of my favorite names so I voted for that.

Gretchen, please know that, at least IMHO, you can come here any time and talk about anything. We miss you! Can't wait to hear how the ultrasound goes.

I chose Michael Allen because it just rolled off my tongue with your last name

Hey Gretchen! Don't be such a stranger! I know you girls have your own little club going on but that doesn't mean you have to desert us!

I'm another vote for Matthew. Its always been one of my favourite boy names and I think it "flows" just fine. Also, its one of those names that, when shortened, sounds just as good. Yep, Matt - good, strong name. I like it.

P.S. - I really like your "girl" names, too.

Call me the oddball, I like Matthew Gabriel the best, but it's not there to vote for.

I'm glad you have your own board to talk about your own issues, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't post here, too. We've missed you & even if you're gaining, you can still post here, we are pretty lenient about that I think.

Just please don't be one of those who has her baby & then disappears from the face of the earth. THAT GOES FOR ALL OF YOU PREGGO'S!!!

BELIEVE YOU ME.... I will be back and with a vengence after this babe of mine is born. I've already got my plan of attack in place. AS SOON AS that MD give me the clearance, I'm BACK in the gym and BACK to my old eating patterns. For those of you who may think that the baby doesn't rule your appetite and what you eat, it did for me!! GEESH!

I voted for Carson James, mostly because you can't really shorten Carson. I get that from my mom.. when naming me she really thought about how she didn't want people to shorten my name, and thats partly how my name came to be.

In my opinion there is a point where it doesn't become JUST about weight loss, so I don't see why you being pregnant is an issue. People form bonds, and want to stay in contact.. those friendships really keep you motivated to come back, and in a good environment. I miss seeing your posts!

I chose Carson Gabriel because for the main reason that it's vert different and I like a name that when you talk about him you know exactly which kid you're talking about. You're right Gabriel can be shortened to Gabe, I don't like to shorten names... I didn't choose Matthew or Micheal because they are toooooo common, sure they are strong names but just common... I work in a school and the most common name are Matthew, Justin, Patrick and Phillip. At one point there were 12 Justins in our school, I'll check tomorrow how many Matthews there are, just for the fun of it... Just my 2 cents...since you did want an oppinion......

I like Carson James.

I guess I missed the post about not talking about pregnancies. I for one enjoy to hear about y'alls pregnancies. There's no telling when if ever we will have another one (we really need a new home before we add any more to our family) and I enjoy hearing about y'alls.

If you don't feel comfortable posting just post your stuff on the yadda yadda posts.

You're good with the names, Gretchen! I picked Carson James. It has a nice ring to it especially with your last name.

Gretchen..
I for one want to hear all about it..
I'm so jealous My hubby says he's done, but I could happily do one more, maybe even two

Just because one person is not interested doesn't mean everyone else isn't as concerned and interested as can be!!! That's what the block feature is for

This of course is coming from someone who hopes someday to be a nurse, doctor, or midwife...

You are obviously loved here!
Best of luck with the baby, and I look forward to getting to know you

(((Hugs)))
Linda
