Pregnant after a Loss

When did you start to think about baby names?

I've always thought about what names I liked since I was a little girl, but I am so afraid of assigning a single name (boy or girl). I am 10 weeks, 3 days and I feel guilty about it, but it would be so hard losing a "Noah" or "Amelia" than it would to just "have a miscarriage". I hate PGAL brain. When did you start to think about or pick out a name?

Re: When did you start to think about baby names?

  • My husband likes to talk about names right when we find out I am pregnant--I don't even think about it until after first tri.  We do blood work, so with DS, we didn't talk about names until after we knew he was healthy and it was a boy.  We went back and forth most of my pregnancy about names and had one picked out, but not set in stone, by induction day.  

    I do, however, have a running list of names I like in my phone.  If a name sticks out or I think it's clever, I throw it on the list.  
  • We spent a long time prepping to TTC so we had locked down a great list of girl's names years before this pregnancy. Boy's names were always harder; they seem so much more limited and skewed towards the aggressive (or are totally overplayed) and we have very specific tastes and wants. We had a few almost-loves but continued to kick ideas around casually while struggling to conceive and then until we found out the sex at 18 weeks. Once we knew the sex, we resumed serious discussions. The night we went through the top 1000 I had nightmares of horrible, awful, misspelled and try-hard names literally chasing me so no more baby name lists for me. 

    Now we're pretty sure but waiting to meet him juuuuust in case he's a real goofball baby who needs one of our less regal back-ups.
