someone who's pregnant tells you what they are going to name their baby and it's EXACTLY what you always had in mind??? I make a habit of not giving out that information ... I will say, "Oh, I like that name" or "That's cute ...", etc. But tonight, for the first time, I thought I was going to die! My DH's cousin has struggled like we all have and is finally pregnant. She found out that she was having a girl a few weeks ago and this is the first time I saw her to talk about it. I knew I was going to ask her about any thoughts on a name and for some reason, this morning, I had a feeling that she was going to pick "my" name. Little did I know that she was going to pick the WHOLE name - first and middle. When I asked her, inside I was praying, please say Jenny or Rachel or Brittany - anything but Olivia .. and certainly anything but Olivia Grace. What does she say? Olivia Grace! How can that be? I think back and maybe I mentioned that name in the past but I doubt it because I'm pretty tight lipped about our issues around DH's family - it's like poison ivy! So, how it is possible, with all the names out there, that she picks the EXACT name I have envisioned for my baby girl (if that ever happens)??? I had a difficult time even holding a straight face and not getting upset when she told me she was pregnant and now this??? I tried - and I kept a smile but that was at 3pm - it's almost 11pm and I couldn't wait to get back and type this on DS. I know it sounds petty - there are a ton of great names out there. But this is family so that means it will be a constant reminder of what I want ... or wanted. It's just kind of like the end of a dream for me ... I guess my only hope is for me to have a boy and ensure that I get "my name" this time around ..... =D Any thoughts?
