E Tu?

Dear Body,

I know, Tiffany said that you pop out lots faster with subsequent babies than with your first. I don't know, it just figured that maybe it would be like month 4 (instead of month 3) before I'd be having these wrestling matches with my body over what we can and cannot wear. I just did not expect to hit that "My regular clothes don't fit right anymore yet the preggo clothes are too big" stage for a little while. That's why there was that showdown at 9:34 this morning in front of my clothes closet. We settled for mildly preggo jeans with a regular shirt (stretchy.) I thought that surely I could jazz it up with some great heels.


My feet HURT. What is the DEAL? Last time I was tottering around on 5 inch stilettos way into my 7th month. Today I am having a hard time with 3.5? This is ridiculous. Ridiculous and unacceptable. Mutinous behaviors will not be tolerated. Especially from my feet. They should be saying to me, "Yes Ma'am, may we HAVE ANOTHER?!"

Other Half suggested that we give the baby a nickname until we can ascertain the gender specifications. I figured that this was a matter for the interweb. Any ideas? The parasite? Lumpy? (that's Joe's contribution...we gotta come up with something different.)

Zygote. 'Cause that's TOTALLY what I'm calling mines before I know what they're going to be...assuming I ever have any.

I've been calling my bump the Jelly Bean, but my husband kept trying to call it peanut. Gross! The weird thing was, my MIL was VERY concerned with what whe nick-named the fetus (oh, we also call is sweetusfetus) becuase two girls in her family had nicknamed it Bug and we just COULDN'T have more than 2 Bugs. ?? Thanks for the AMAZING e.mail - I'll write you back today:)

Two.
Or
Dos.

We called my brother "As-Wi-Pe" from the SNL. My cousin christened his brother Cactus.

I think Bettina is a perfect nickname. Or Crucifixio.

Bibby.
Bumpy.

I'm afraid I'm started to hear the names of the seven dwarves pipe out in my head. Oh dear.

Secksy shoes, indeed.

What about Abu?

(I heart Aladdin).

Sarah said...

Nicknames are tricky because if it's too good, you'll end up calling your baby something totally weird for the rest of his/her life. My brother had a baby over a month ago and they still can't bring themselves to call him by his real name. They started calling him "Lentil" when he was that size in her womb and can't break the habit. Consider a nickname that you would want to stick with FOREVER!!

BowlerGirl said...

I'm not that creative in this. I just would call him/her 'baby'.
So very sad and lame on my part.

Queen Scarlett said...

...you are a crack up - I hope you feel better soon!

How about... "in-utero" (IU for short)

I always calling my belly ... when I talk to her or about her "sweetie" "munchkin" "little one"...

La Yen said...

I vote for lentil. Or blanket. Or Brutus, for the ides of March. Or my verification: bzgowwrc

AzĂșcar said...

Thanks for all the suggestions! I proposed Crucifixio, but J wasn't down with that.

My vote has been for Muqtada, because it feels like the freaking Mahdi Army in my belly lately.

J doesn't get Sadr jokes either...

Decision to come later, I suppose.

Love the shoes, even though your toes look like painful, swollen, little marshmellows. haha!

With the nickname, yeah, make sure you like it. Before we knew what X was, I started calling him Spud and my dad still calls him that.
