I have been wanting to name a baby boy after my grampa for a few years now. When he came thru ellis island from Transylvania his name was Enrich Jack. They told him to go by Jack, so he did. But I really like the name Enrich. My issue with it is that it is kind of weird and it doesn't look like it sounds. So we have been looking at alernative closely related names. I am just frustrated, none of them sound or feel right. I really don't wanna be one of these difficult ppl who give their kid a name that just leaves them correcting everyone 24/7. The name sounds like Enrick but looks like Enrich, old world. I saw a record also on ancestory.com naming him Emerick. The variations we have been looking at are
Enrich (bothering me sounds like enrichment)
Emeric (Hungarian Saint killed by boars, also the french version of Emerick, my dads name was was Marc, the french spelling of Mark)
Emerick (Could nickname him Emory, not sold on that as a birth name tho)
I just feel kind of blinded for some reason to any other name. I used to think a boys name would be easier, now I am thinking girls would be easier. Oh and to top it off Scott wants to give him his first name as his middle name. Enrich Scott, so he wont have a fall back name. His dad did this with him and he wants to follow it for first born. What's funny is I found out my cousin Scott, his middle name is Enrich after my grandfather, ha! I had a dream the other night my dad was writing me a check and the name at the top of the check was Enrich. He's been visiting me a lot lately in dreams, mostly in phone calls.
Two days ago I was so tired I went to bed at 7:30, 39 steps short of my 10k steps for the day! Ahhhhh how annoying! Been kind of a low steps this week. My hours at work were cut from 32 to 28 which is nice, I can use getting off my feet for sure. Especially since the new and exciting spider veins I have been developing really pop out when I am on my feet too much. I asked my doctor about them, I love how u need to ask a doctor like 8 million questions (that you write down) but you have time for like 3 (and no time to get paper out) and can't seem to think when she asks "how are you?" I asked if they would go away and she goes "Maybe they will, they might not" Great thanks! I feel better now lol My dad's side is notorius for spider and varicose veins. Online it said to exercise and elevate feet.
Eating has been a little better. Except if I am really good and eat 2200 calories then I wake up starving to death at 4 am. Exercise has been good this week, going to my 3rd dance class this week! Lifting twice and hit 1 water aerobics class. It was a good week.
22 weeks after 3rd dance class for the week.

Or it will be here any day now and the temps are sure showing it. They finally turned the AC on at my job which is nice, I was kinda dreading going and it being off. Our work cat G is knows where to be when it reaches 90 outside in a 1200 dollar chair of course.
I have a whole new pet peeve, somehow recently I keep acquiring diabetic friends. Neither of which really care to control with eating well, health and exercise. It's so frustrating to watch. Both of them are losing their eye sight from neglecting signs. You can feel bad for someone for so long and listen to them complain about how sick they are. Then watch them eat donuts, always be carrying a large pop from Mcdonalds and smoking. It's too personal of a matter to mention, I know that. I just seems like common sense. I could have easily become diabetic at the weight I was at. I know people have to wanna change. It's just so frustrating to watch someone shortening their life before your very eyes. I can understand if you were diabetic for so long and so many restrictions have been put on you.But people do lose weight and get better. I would hope they would wanna feel better.
My baby sexing date got moved up 3 days. So now we find out 1 week from Friday! I am so ready to know so that we can start actually planning. Plus I can stop fighting my mom on what the gender is. Healthy baby is all we want. I went in for a doppler on Monday and she found the heartbeat ASAP. Starting to pop out a little more. Yesterday morning after my 5 am dance class.
Still been super active with work and exercise. Averaging about 14k steps a day right now. Today might throw me I didn't wake up for my dance class this morning. Eating has been good, hardly craving any meat this trimester. Craving tomato sandwiches like no ones business and kraft mac and cheese? lol and also watermelon. Scott keeps trying to get me to take Iron cuz my prenatal has none. I have always heard unless your doctor tells u take Iron, you shouldn't take Iron. I eat a lot of spinach and broccoli, I would rather get natures Iron.
For Fathers Day I finally found a tree for my dad. Scott's aunt has wanted to buy a tree for our yard for my dad since he passed 11 months ago. I picked out a Tricolored Beech, it was one of his favorites. Scott and his dad planted it for me on Fathers Day. It was so nice of them.
Oh yes and Joel helped as well.
I better get the dogs out on a walk before it reaches 90. Better bring some water for them. Have a good weekend everybody!
