Baby Update!

I had my 37 week checkup today and so far things are looking really good. Last week I was dilated to a 1 and this week to a 3 and the doctor said that the head was really low. As of right now I am scheduled to be induced on November 6th but the doctor said that she would not be surprised if I didnt make it to that day. I know that this is crazy but I kind of hope that this baby waits for two more weeks. Don't get me wrong, I can't wait to meet her and I am very tired of being pregnant but Abigale's birthday is next week and I would like to focus on her and her little party all week and then have a week to get ready for the baby. (This is why I love getting induced because I like feeling that I am in a little bit more control and can get everything ready for that day instead of waiting around but who knows what will happen with this baby.)
When Abigale was born she was pretty little- under 7 lbs and had a tiny head- but the doctor said that this baby feels a lot bigger and I agree. My stomach feels much larger and is extremely tight all the time, which is not very comfortable but as long as the baby is healthy, I really dont care.
This brings me to another point, I keep calling her the baby because we still do not have a name. She could come any day and I would really like to have a name picked out before we go to the hospital. If anyone has any suggestions, I would love it! The names we are kind of thinking of are Lauren, Brooklyn, or Madelyn but I am not sure I am in love with any of these names. I kind of want a fun name but still a classic name. Anyway that is all for now but I will keep you updated. Oh and I promise pictures of the house are coming!

YaY!! You are already so far dilated. That is really good! But I hope for you that she comes after Abigale's birthday!!!
She is getting to be so big and adorable!!! We were definitely missing you at pumpkinland...i kept remembering our last visit with you and Katie. I miss you both!

And as for names...I love the site: www.nymbler.com YOu enter in names that you like and it pulls up other names you may like as well. YOu could also go look at the Holloways blog...they had lots of people give cute suggestions. I will come back and give some ideas when I've thought about it. :)
Love you guys!

By the way, Brooklyn is super cute. Well..they all are. But here are a few more suggestions (I was trying to keep it classic like you said)

Ava, Eden (I really liked this), Grace, Emma, Tamsin (maybe this isn't classic enough)

Okay I better go to bed. I'll be back. I love girl names.

I kind of hope they share a birthday so they can pretend they are twins.

You can't use Orme, that is our name. But how about Persepone or Matilda? How about Livia?

I love all the pictures of abigales happy face. They are so cute. I think all of the names you have sound cute. I can't believe you are so close to having your baby. Happy Birthday to Abigale tomorrow (I think that's right, but I could totally be off). Good luck with labor and delivery.
