So the poor little one in my belly is developing a nickname due to my denial!!

Every time there is a kick it feels like a bubble….and there are a lot of “bubbles”….and I announce them as bubbles still, as am avoiding reality!! Now everyone is starting to use the word Bubbles to refer to the little one! And it’s my fault!!

People keep saying:

“How is Bubbles?”


“Can’t wait to meet Bubbles”

My dad started referring to him as MR. Bubbles!! Which made my eyes pop out of my head! I immediately was like AHHHHH!!! I told him that “Bubbles” or even something like “Bubbalaki” (to make it Greek of course) was better than Mr. Bubbles! You see, my dad has always been in charge of coming up with the nicknames for the young’uns and now I fear that I may have backed the little one into a corner with this one!

But Bubbles just sounds soooooooo effeminate!! Doesn’t it?? I don’t know! Or as I would say = gayness!

The poor little Schmonkey!

Oooooh…sounds like as I write this that the little one may have a few crazy nicknames coming his way!!

So, names used so far have been…




Please forgive me little one!!!

You know you’re fat when…

….someone offers their seat to you!

Yesterday, on my way home I got on the train and this guy offered me his seat – of course I declined as I can’t sit anyway according to my 365 Challenge – BUT it was unclear to whether that was my first pregnancy offer or not ??????

Which means I am a HEFFA!


….did he offer his seat because he was getting off at the next stop, as he did??


…did he offer his seat because he was being nice as I was the only one standing and without one in the whole car??


…because I am female??


I will have to see if this is a pattern to determine if it was indeed my first pregnancy offer or not – so will let you know!


I have been thinking a bit about how guilty I feel in not dealing with the whole baby names fiasco! So yesterday, I forced myself to make some sort of list, or jot something down, before I went to bed. I was super tired and couldn’t think of one name so picked up my college Middlebury magazine and turned to the update section from all the class members, which has the names in bold, and went through the many pages.

To be honest….I didn’t like ANY of them!!! To be honest…they were very American….too American.

I was trying to make words from names, and molding together some or multiple, and also trying to see if there was a Greek equivalent or a Greek sound to them, or make a Greek sound out of them…

It was a nightmare!

I wrote down something but I don’t even want to look at that list! I even left it at home on purpose today as I don’t even want to look at the book its written down in!

It was a disaster!

Nothing feels right – but does it ever?


I am trying to deal with it – this whatever it is I have syndrome: non-reality/detraction/denial/immaturity/laziness (could go on and on!) I am trying to force myself now I know it’s a BOY! Can’t we just call it Boy or Buddy Boy??!! HAHA!!

Anyway, last night was a first step, right? One step at a time, right? 

Baby steps 🙂
