I may never name my child

There is so much to talk about, but nothing that I really want to get into.

Life is starting to feel a little overwhelming at times. Work has gotten into its busy season, so I can't count on work as my down time, as it is for most of the year. I don't mind being busy at work, don't get me wrong, it's just strange all of a sudden.

I'm rushing around trying to get my apartment into a liveable state, where everything actually has a place and isn't just hidden in a drawer 'for now'. But the messes seem to show up faster than I can clean them and I end up spending more time trying to keep on top of the cleaning than actually getting stuff put away. B. does not understand my cleaning obsession, but maybe he's never heard of nesting. If not, he should maybe read that link. I've been waiting months for us to move so I could get started on my nesting, and so far it is not running smoothly. I need a full day to myself where I can crank up the music and finally get my place into a state that I can be happy about.

My savings account is not getting any bigger, but baby time is getting closer. I am getting some bills paid off now, but I'm basically terrified that we are going to struggle financially the entire time I'm on maternity leave. Cutting my income in half and adding in a baby won't be easy. It'll be worth the struggle to be able to be at home with my girl, but I'm worried it'll be too hard without having any backup money.

I know my baby time is getting close though. I have less than two months to go now. But a bigger sign that my time is coming? All my bloggy friends are giving birth.

K. had her little boy on July 14th. N. had her little boy on July 10th. V.'s adorable baby girl is already two months old, and Noelle is having her baby girl on August 4th. And I think I'm next! And there still isn't a name I love that we can agree on. There are only a couple of names I really love and they've already been vetoed off my list :p Naming a baby is freaking hard.

You're definitely next!! And it totally sounds like you're nesting, there's always sooo much to do but you probably should settle on a name soon, lol :)

Good luck with the naming!

And hope you get your apartment the way you like it soon.

Baby Bernard will do for a few days if she comes out and you still don't have a name! It will be fine and maybe you have to see her first :) having the place organize will def. help you relax and enjoy the last months or being pregnant and waiting for baby

I hope you get some time to yourself to clean and put things together. And I hope you find a name for the baby. You could always call her Squishy. ;)

Good luck with your naming! Naming seems like it would be super hard. I'm sure you will find a great name that you love though!
