    Jimi (like Jimi Hendrix, although everyone thinks its short for James)
    Zac (Zachariah)
    Nate (Nathaniel)

    The middle names will be after DH maternal Grandad and my Grandad, and our surname is Whitehead so if we chose Seth he'd be Seth William Patrick Whitehead, which I think has a really nice ring to it.
    We have always agreed pretty quickly on names. Theres a few names I like but I either don't feel they fit with the other boys or they don't sound right with the middle names or our surname.

    I was hoping you'd get your little girl :hugs: I know you were wanting a little girl so badly. It's okay to feel some sadness over it, and if you did cry, it wouldn't mean anything bad! You are human and that is a natural emotion. Your ultrasound pictures are adorable!! :hugs: I love the name Seth, you should go for it!! Congratulations!!

    Thanks, I did cry a lot a few weeks ago, but I felt like it was just a confirmation this time.

    Maybe once I get shopping I will see the girls stuff and feel a bit sad I still don't get to buy it. I can't say that I'm pleased he's not a girl. I just don't feel the sadness I expected to and I think I worked through most of it already.

    I feel like I told myself so much that I needed a girl and made it into this huge thing when really it wasn't such a big deal.

    So sorry you didn't get your pink bundle but at least you can stop driving yourself crazy and finally, hopfully, enjoy the rest of your pregnancy. I think the hardest part is not knowing especially when you are hoping for a specific sex.
    I have my scan in 10 days and I am so nervous. I hope I can hold up as good as you. I have been prepping myself for them to say boy and I can only hope it will help soften the blow if baby is indeed a boy.

    Love the name Seth too by the way. My eldest is also named Seth. Loved it ever since I watched the movie City of Angels, and he most certianly is my angel compared to my sencond one lol!

    Haha its funny my eldest was much easier compared to my second as well
    Wow quite a few Seths, I think you are all in the US though arn't you? Its not heard often here, last time I heard it for an english man was an old man on a tv series years ago so I worry people will think of him, where as I think of like Seth Green and Seth Rogan

    I think it's a perfect name it goes really well with your other boys names, I'm not in the US I'm in Australia, it's not very common here though but you do hear or a few. Are your older boys excited they are getting another brother?

    Aw that out fit is so cute.

    I do think the name fits really well. Another one I quite like and people are suggesting to me is Ethan, I think it sounds ok with his other names but not sure it fits as well with the other boys names.

    Yeah they are really pleased to have another brother, the younger two really didn't want a sister. The eldest used to want a sister but recently had been saying it was a boy and so he was pleased he was right LOL

    Ethan is nice too, I think Seth goes better though :)
    Aww that's good that the boys are pleased.
    Hope your still doing well, I know it's bound to be a little difficult each time you go to the shops. I have 2 nieces so even if I don't get a girl for myself I still get to buy for them so that helps. Do you have any nieces?

    I told DH I like Seth and he said he liked it too. I asked the boys if they like it and DS2 said no, but he also said he wants to name the baby after a wrestler. I'm not sure whether to use it any way as DH says its not DS2s name so he doesn't have to like it, but then I worry he will feel I've ignored his in put :/
    Everyone else likes it though and DH told his sister and she said she liked it and her daughter likes it too.

    He seems to be fine with it. He admitted before we went in to the scan he was scared it was another boy, but insists he wanted a girl for my sake while I originally wanted a girl for his sake because he kept saying about a girl. He seemed excited to tell me that he spotted straight away it was a boy.
