OK I'll come clean, ds is not born yet and we don't even know if he is a he BUT I have had several nice conversations with dh where we agreed on a name and I felt really happy that we both agreed, liked it etc. They felt like special/important conversations to me. Anyway, this evening he says he cannot remeber said name and furthermore cannot understand why I am pissed off about it. Be honest- is it horrible pregnancy hormones or would you be annoyed too? Be honest - I can take it!

It's your hormones.

It's pregnancy hormones, I think. Your baby is much more "real" to you than to your DH; once s/he arrives it'll be a different story.

How many weeks are you?

Lol that's a bit crap of him
write it down and stick it on the fridge!!

LittleCheesyPineappleOne Sun 19-Sep-10 21:39:56

Definitely hormones. Go and give him a cuddle.

LadyBiscuit Sun 19-Sep-10 21:40:16

I think I'd be annoyed too but if you feel like bursting into tears then that is your hormones

Oh pooh - was feeling quite righteous then but will go with the majority and accept I may be being a bit of a cow. Damn!! I'm only 8 weeks btw but, in my defence I have 2 ds already who had to wait ages for names and I'm just mentally preparing myself for another boy and this was my method - oh well.

I cant remember my sons' names nor can OH.

For the first three or four weeks of his life we kept calling DC5 Atticus. Its a lovely name but its the dog's blush

Back to you, its your hormones. Generally (please dont flame me) men dont connect with babies until they can really see them and they do stuff back i.e. smile. They love them but its harder for them to get involved the way women do.

I bet you've been thinking about it all the time and just told him the once.

go on give him a cuddle

I'm not giving him a cuddle as have just caught him picking his nose - he has now left the room - oh dear!

Baysmum Sun 19-Sep-10 21:47:04

OK Mutt, I get the message!

insertexpletive Sun 19-Sep-10 21:47:37

8 weeks? Oh dear, your dh has a very long 32 weeks ahead of him grin

Baysmum Sun 19-Sep-10 21:49:26

Actually, I find the first 12 weeks horrendous in my pregnancies and then feel quite calm and serene - (floats off!)

angelberry Sun 19-Sep-10 21:49:29

8 weeks? You really, really need to calm down.

Baysmum Sun 19-Sep-10 21:53:19

I know I said I could take it but give me a break - shock pregnancy news, cant tell anyone yet except a couple of close friends who have BOTH said - oooh it might be a girl! Just had 1 or 2 brief convos where I said I would be cool with another ds and one way to get head rounmd that would be to agree name and feel bit more positive about whole thing.

scottishmummy Sun 19-Sep-10 21:53:44

stop stressing about silly shit,stay calm. congratulations about baby

Theincrediblesulk1 Sun 19-Sep-10 21:54:18

Oh no! 8 weeks no wonder he doesn't remember! Poor sod

Deep healing breaths you have a further 7 months to talk about this!

BeenBeta Sun 19-Sep-10 21:55:57

At 8 weeks I used to occassionally forget DW was pregnant - never mind remembering baby names. confused

scottishmummy Sun 19-Sep-10 21:57:41

and dont harbour any thoughts of dats my baby name no one else use it-or else

Baysmum Sun 19-Sep-10 22:00:59

I'm really not like that Scottish - am actually fairly normal and balanced honest - with this one exception obviously. However, I am making a vow to be nice to first trimester mums as actually it's quite a rubbish time - is there a week at which one is permitted to think about names btw??

scottishmummy Sun 19-Sep-10 22:02:30

think away just dont get in a fankle about names.conserve your telly.dont knock your pan in
