22-, 24-, and 25-Weeks and a Name (don't get too excited)

I guess it's time for a belly picture update since I haven't posted one since the 20-week point!  (By the way, the word "belly" makes me cringe by the end of each pregnancy.  I thought you'd like to know that.)  

Besides these pictures, I don't have any baby updates.  My next OB appointment is December 8th, at which point I'll be just shy of 28 weeks.

22 Weeks

24 Weeks

24 Weeks again (because one picture just wasn't enough)

25 Weeks
As far as Baby Girl's name...we haven't chosen one yet.  I know we still have plenty of time, but we had decided the other kids' names by this point, and I'm starting to get twitchy.  As long as we decide before I go into labor, I'll be happy, but sooner rather than later would be nice.

I'm not sure why we're having so much trouble...there are lot of names I like, but a myriad of reasons why we won't choose certain names for our own children (too popular, too trendy, too hard to pronounce, etc.).  Also, we will probably not choose a name that starts with "S," "L," or "F," as we'd like for Baby Girl to have her "own" letter.  I think we have to stay away from "W" names too, because of our last name (too bad, since there are some really good ones out there).  So nixing those letters narrows the field considerably.  Ideally, I'd also like for her to have a name that begins with a consonant, rather than a vowel, since the other kids' names start with consonants, but that's not a deal breaker for me.

So, as you can imagine, we have a very short list to work with.  I didn't think we would come up with/consider any "new" names (ones that we haven't considered before), but we actually are, so that's interesting.  Some of you who are familiar with our name list may be surprised by what we choose.  :-)

I'd love to hear YOUR name suggestions!
