I like the idea of team purple. Wish I had thought of it. Then again, everyone in my family would buy pinks anyway. And I have lots of clothes from DD1 that I will be reusing. I have bought a few things, which includes a couple gender neutral sleepers.

People mispronounce my daughter's name all the time, but I've gotten over it. I don't regret pronouncing her name different at all because I love it.

Purple is a fantastic color!

What is DD1's name if you don't mind me asking, adopim? I'm sure it's beautiful. ^_^

I never complain when my OB makes me wait for an appointment, but that's because I was lucky to get her. She's one of the best in our area and was only taking new patients by recommendation (got the recommendation from my MIL). She also delivers 85% of her patients. It's irritating sometimes, but I know that she's a really busy woman. A lot of the times that I have to wait are due to her delivering another patient.

DD1's name is Arianna. It is becoming a more and more popular name but is more commonly pronounced Ahri-ahnna or Airi-ahnna. I pronounce it Ahri-anna. The second "a" is like in "cat".
I loved the name Anna, but wanted to add a spin to it since I have a cousin named Anna.

Is 85% good? I was surprised to find out some hospitals you get whatever doctor is on call to deliver your baby. My best friend had a baby almost 2 years ago and I was there with her and couldn't believe the doctor delivering wasn't her doctor. My doctor has delivered both my babies regardless of the time of night or being on call. I thought that was the point of choosing a doctor and becoming comfortable with them!

I believe that 85% is good. The on call doctor ended up being the one who delivered Arianna. My doctor had come to check on me and I was at about 7cm. He had a quick meeting a few miles away and thought he would be back in plenty of time for the delivery. Within minutes of him leaving the hospital I went from 7cm to 10cm and was ready push. So they had the on call doctor come up to deliver (basically he came in and caught her as she fell out of me ) In the end, it turned out to be a neat story. The on call doctor that day was the same doctor who delivered me when I was born. So I was just fine with him as a replacement (not that I had any other choice, lol)

I don't even get to see a regular OB doctor when I go for appointments I see one of 8 on the high risk team. If I was not high risk there are Doctors, midwives, Doulas so I am lucky for the 8. and they tell you there is not a high likilyhood you will have any certain Doctor at delivery time . I was a bit upset with that. But, I have a great hospital. They told me at 30 weeks I can schedule a tour of the entire Labor and delivery section. When Zaya is born I get to keep her with me in the room as long as her and my health are doing okay. And as long as I get rest too! I am also lucky in the fact that since I go every 2-3 weeks til August then every week I must call and be seen I will know alot of the staff

85% is good. Unfortunately there are a lot of women that don't get delivered by their OB, so 85% is a reassuring percentage. That was one of the first things I asked her during my first appointment because I wanted to know what my chances were that she would be delivering my baby.

That is a cute spin on Anna. My paternal grandmother's name is Anna, so we thought about using Annabelle Lee as a cute way to name a girl after grandma (her name is Anna Marie and I also had a great-grandmother with the middle name Lee), but DF's parents named one of their cats Annabelle.

I don't plan to keep Liam in the room with me at night in the hospital, but I have requested that they bring him in to me for feedings.
