    Taq and Allison, you might want to consider a "babywearing coat" (there are a number on the market now) - they accommodate baby bumps AND you will be set if you end up wearing your munchkin as well. :)

    I don't think I really had any names that I wouldn't consider at all

    DH really doesn't want any boys named with names that end in -ie or -y, but other than that I don't think we have thought enough about names to have a true "do not use" list.

    In regards to traveling, I frequently drove several hours solo (for shopping, etc) and stayed in other places while pregnant (even heavily so). I had no health issues though.

    For names, we didn't have any blanket name types we wouldn't consider. We had lots of names we didn't like though. We had a white board and we'd frequently add names that one or the other of us liked and we'd veto as needed, lol. My husband's biggest woe was that we both liked the name Julian, but it's the dog's name, lol.

    However, we're both very pleased with the name we ended up choosing :)

    I've thought about it but I worry it wouldn't get much use since I'm due in May.

    As for names, I love more unique names, DH wants to stick to "traditional" names. Party pooper. I'm pretty much going to not argue until I'm in labor, at which point I think I'll have the best bargaining chip EVER.

    We had the same issue with names as well. I wanted more out there names and he wanted something "normal." We finally agreed with Morgan its not OVER done and its done enough that daddy can handle it.

    My DH likes more common names as well, whereas I prefer a bit more original but not totally out there. We've been able to agree on a few so far which is good, but he throws out names like Lindsey and Rebecca and he can't understand how I see those as 'common'.

    Exactly! I'm going to use my labor pain to "convince" him that it's the name.

    On another tangent, has anyone suffered from sciatica pain this early? (13 weeks) What gave you relief?

    I pretty much already had my names (or at least a top 5) picked out, so I didn't have to rule anything out.

    A ton of those names in that article that are no-nos are names I really like, though!

    I prefer names that have meanings. Luckily DOug and I had the same opinion about the names we liked.

    As for the sciatica swimming. I kid you not. Worked wonders for me.

    I was thinking like the wedding china...

    I'm grateful that DH and I both only like traditional, familiar names. I like what our friends did--they took the SSA's list of most common names, threw out the top 50, and chose from the next 150. Well known, but not overdone that way.

    (and NO, not preggo! Just lurking!)

    THe only name Tyler wanted I said HELL NO to was Boone and thats because it reminds me of the chaz dog Boone. While Boone is so cute I would constantly be thinking of those long ears and hound like face.

    I love crazy names. People always screw up Briggs' name. They call him Brig, Braggs, Brunk... wait, repeat that again? And then ask me why his name is Briggs. They are never happy when I say I just liked it. It has no big elaborate meaning.

    But, on the same note I like more typical names too. My second is named Blake because I like it. I prefer short, very strong/manly names for boys so thats what I went with. Also, if no one has noticed all my boys start with B's. Bandit, Briggs, Brobee, Blake... :D
