I-WANNA-BE-A-MOMMY (866.9 days ago) I`m not telling my names to anyone until I am holding the baby in my arms. I don`t want to hear ppl`s opinions on the names we chose. It`s our child and it`s our decision. The only ppl that know are my Hubby and my parents. Other than that... NOBODY knows and I plan on keeping it that way. Plus they`ll know the sexe...the name is the only surprise.
lin (867.7 days ago) some of you ladies are brave to tell before and even get thins monogrammed! My second son was going to be named Jaxon, for sure that was what we had agreed on. Well he came out with jet black hair (we were expecting blond or red like our first baby) and the more we looked at him the less we like the name Jaxon for him. We ended up changing it completely!!
letthisonestick (867.7 days ago) I held out for a VERY long time. Finally a week before I had my son I told her. She tried to talk me out of it...in the hospital...while I was lying on the bed....IN LABOR!!! I have no recollection of this but I was on heavy pain meds after the birth, when the nurse came in and asked me what his name was I angrily shouted it at her.
-Trying for a GIRL (867.7 days ago) Yes I told my mother inlaw and my sister inlaw the names of the baby if it was a boy or a girl. If he was girl his name was going to Sophia Marie, but he was a boy and his name is Preston Anthony but my mother in law didn`t like the girls name. But I didn`t really care because it`s my child and if I want to name them those names I will!!!
mommyofxyxyxx (867.7 days ago) I would just tell her that you haven`t decided on any yet. Also say something like, `do you have any suggestions?` that way you let her THINK you`re considering her names. I would avoid telling anyone and give this same answer to all.
SamanthaDawn (867.7 days ago) I told people my decions and wished I hadn`t... someone always had something negative to say about every name I picked... and I was so emotional, and it really hurt my feelings! I named my son Adrian even tho his great Aunt was like `oh god don`t name him that!` could never find a name that everyone was happy with, but I figured as long as I love it thats all that matters.
-*Eoins*Mammy*- (867.8 days ago) i would suggest you dont share your names until the baby is born because people WILL judge your names and you will end up changing your favourite names due to their negativity!!! this is what happend to me! ive now had to go for a name that appeals to everybody! but i still like the name, just mad at myself for telling them the original names i chose! hope this helps!!!
kidatrbaby (867.8 days ago) I wish to god I had not hv told ppl even my inlaws they wanted to give me their opinion & tried to get me & my dh to change but i refuse.
ajoke (867.8 days ago) We told everyone, but with the next one, we are not going to find out the sex....everyone does know what the girls name will be (same one from last since we had a boy) but it would be neat to keep the boys one a suprise....I don`t know if I, let along my hubby, would be able to keep it a secret.
kaysfamily (867.8 days ago) no i don`t i learned my lesson lol i told people names we loved and then to find out they used those names! grrr pissed me off. 5 of my friends used the names i told them i might use. so this time i just say it`s soo hard this time not sure. but we have a named picked out just not a middle name yet.
B3thy (867.9 days ago) thanks for the comments ladies. my MIL is very pushy and I find that I have a hard time dealing with her sometimes. I know she is just excited, but I feel like she already had her kids and she should respect my feelings. we are finding out the gender which we will share, but last time I was pregnant I told my names and recieved rude comments (not from her). sadly we ended up having a m/c, but it really hurt my feelings that anyone would say mean things about the names we chose so I feel like I really don`t want to share them this time. I wish she would just drop it, but I haver a feeling she is not going to!
amber luvs jim (867.9 days ago) I share names as soon as we decide! I live in the south and down here we monogram everything, so people want to know before the baby shower so they can have gifts monogrammed:)
california-mom (867.9 days ago) I always tell people and have had a negative comment every time lol (my kids are Summer, Kyan and Lily and this baby will be Cambira). As long as you have thick skin and dont let their opinions phase you, I see nothing wrong with telling anyone. As far as `stealing names`, Ive always thought that was weird lol Id be flattered if someone used one of my kids names! I just never thought that was a big deal.
asjl (867.9 days ago) for both our girls, i announced their names immedietly! We liked having a name to call them by while pregnant, felt more personal to us! But if youre not comfortable, dont let anyone pressure you!
missbunny (867.9 days ago) I did...and then became fed up of people suggesting other names, or flat out telling me they didn`t like the name I had picked. So I`ve decided not to say anything with this one...it will be harder to criticise the name when there`s a cute baby attached to it! Don`t cave in to your MIL pressuring you if you don`t want to tell, be strong and firm. Take care xx
monkeymamma (867.9 days ago) I totally understand. Just keep telling her ya`ll aren`t letting anyone know yet. You want a surprise
lin (867.9 days ago) I agree...dont tell. I have planned csections and find out the sex so thats the only think left to surprise people with. Just tell her no.
