I've been admitted for pre-term labour at 35+2 so just had my second steroid injection. Dp and i can't sleep the ward is so noisy - so lucky he's been able to stay with me =)

Anyway the boredom has brought us to our final name choices and as it seems more likely than not she will join us early what are your thoughts on:

Emilia Martha
Emilia Ruby

So sorry you can't sleep, but exciting times!

Emilia is a lovely name, I don't care if it's popular. Both Martha and Ruby go well but I think Martha has the edge.

If you're bored, how about some other options to think about:

- Miranda
- Joy
- Rebecca
- Harriet
- Catherine
- Tamsin
- Ramona
- Tamara
- Lucinda
- Anne

Good luck, fingers crossed for you.

Emilia Martha is beautiful.

Both DDs were so very nearly Emilia. It's a beautiful name. Just beware that they may have a lifetime of 'no it's Emilia with an E'!

Good luck with your new arrival.

Emilia is very pretty with either middle name. Best wishes and good luck! thanks

Tbh, middle names are so rarely used that you should just go with the one you and your husband prefer. Fwiw, Emilia is a lovely name! Good luck. Hope all goes well.

Thank you! Still here, still pregnant! I really love both, dp prefers Emilia Ruby so I think that's where we're heading!

I prefer Emilia Ruby.

Another vote for Amelia Martha. Although I prefer it the other way around: Martha Amelia.

Very excited for you- keep us updated

Mrsindecision Thu 20-Mar-14 13:42:08

How are things going OP? Hope all ok. Do let us know when baby Emilia is here! smile

Emilia Martha.

Contractions have all but stopped now after having the drip. Also had steroids for her lungs. At 35+2 doctors are insistent my section shouldn't be performed before 37 weeks (currently booked for 39+1) so got to see consultant next week to discuss early section.

Mireio Thu 20-Mar-14 16:07:41

I prefer Emilia Martha.

TheEternalForever Thu 20-Mar-14 16:10:29

I think both go with Emilia (which is a lovely name) but I prefer Ruby as a name so I would go with Emilia Ruby. Good luck and congrats!

Rtfairy Thu 20-Mar-14 19:33:43

Emilia Ruby is gorgeous.

Tea1Sugar Fri 21-Mar-14 07:30:36

It's decided! Finally. It's stressed me out all pregnancy but our dd2 finally has a name we are both 100% happy with. Emilia Ruby :-) Now if she could just hold on 26 days until my planned section that'd be great!

Nocomet Fri 21-Mar-14 07:34:54

Here's to Emilia Ruby (great name) hanging on in there until 37 weeks!

Mrsindecision Fri 21-Mar-14 09:16:57

Well done on making your final decision with regards to names OP! Look forward to hearing of the safe arrival of Emilia Ruby in due course. Good luck! smile
