It Wasn’t Really Real Before

We still haven’t bought anything baby-related. I think this was because we were both secretly hoping that the gynae was wrong at our last appointment, and that suddenly, the boy-bits would turn into girl-bits.

Unfortunately that didn’t happen. It was our 23-week gynae appointment on Friday and there was very definitely all boy parts visible. His legs were firmly closed for most of the ultrasound viewing, but he gave us a brief flashing of what the gynae assured us was very definitely penis.

So. We’re all blue baby things and boy toys. The Fiance’s mother has started buying things – bless her. But I haven’t yet. It’s still not real. Not just the fact that it’s not a girl, but the fact that we’re having a baby at all. Sure, it’s very apparent physically that I’m having another baby, but it hasn’t sunk in entirely yet. I haven’t accepted it. I’m still holding my breath.

But…while I haven’t actually been buying blue thing,s I have been trying to think of blue names. But I can’t find a single thing that I like. The fact that the wombcreature has no name doesn’t help to make it any more real.

So I need help. Suggestions for boy names. First prize would be for a name starting with “T” obviously. And a second name with an “R”. Don’t ask, just suggest. Will also consider all other suggestions, including Malfoy at this stage, Mandi.

Sheena keeps taking pictures of me. Not only is it annoying and invasive, it also makes it hard for me to pretend there’s nothing going on in my belly. Look. I’m even trying to conceal it.

    Names with a “T” eh…?
    Trent is a badass “T” name.
    Or Troy, but he’ll be a naughty shit if you call him that (all the Troys I knew were naughty shits).
    Just not Thomas, Terrance or Timothy, those are boring names.

  3. Kirst says:

    Boys names with a T or an R to go with Troy? Hmm. Okay (avoiding Tr names like Travis or Trent): Tate, Tyrone, Tanner, Rocco, Rafe, Rhys (Reece)

  4. Angel says:

    Really really name suggestions? Has anyone ever used a name for their child that someone else suggested? You asked for it… ๐Ÿ˜›
    Travis. Tyler. Trent. Taggart. Tennyson. Tyson.
    Ryder. Rory. Reid. Rhett. Ross.
    And Cornelius.

    Don’t feel alone. When I expected my DD, I only came to terms with being pregnant a week before her birth. A week!

    Anyway, these are my suggestions and they are purely that, suggestions.
    Names starting with T: Tudor, Travis and Tiergan.
    Names starting with R: Ralph, Ryder, Reuben and Reed.
    Random names: Nowa (Noah) is what I would have gone for if it turned out to be a boy for us.

    Good luck with finding the right name.

    Listen, his auntie Mandi and cousins Michael, Mason and Mika will only ever call him Malfoy anyway, so just go with it!

    From the suggestions above, I like Tate Ryder.

    I LOVE Sheena’s pics.

    Tertius – although that mean the 3rd
    Timon – Honour, but risk everyone ever running into him signing akhuna matata
    Raymond / Ray
    Reuben – Hahaha, means -> Behold, a son!

    Good luck finding a name for Malfoy! Sometimes you only know when you meet them face to face for sure.
