I went to the doctor today for another check-up and she listened to the baby's heart. We won't have an ultrasound for two more weeks, but she said the heartbeat sounds like a boy. I'm not sure what that means, but I was excited. We'll find out in two weeks if she's correct or not.
So, this doctor's visit prompted a series of events that led to Matthew and I "talking" about baby names. Most couples have a hard time agreeing on names - not us. We're more concerned about sweating the small stuff - like the spelling of the names. Oh yes - you're not mistaken. As if we haven't had enough to argue about over the years, we chose to argue about the spelling of the names we chose. And to make matters worse, both spellings of the name we like are used - so neither one is necessarily "wrong" - although Matthew would fight to the death that mine is the wrong one and his is the right one. Has anyone else had this issue?
And lest you think that I am unwilling to comprise - know first that I married into this name that was chosen. My husband has adored this name for YEARS (literally!) and all but demanded that it would be used for our first child of this gender. My only comment was that maybe we could alter the spelling to better reflect the correct pronunciation. You would have thought I started World War III or something.
Anyways...any thoughts about this dilemma? I'd really love to solve this.
