We’ve chosen a name for GeneSplice. It’s currently a secret, because we don’t want people trying to pressure us to change it. It’s not going to be very popular with Finn’s family, but we don’t care.
- It’s celestial.
- It has Ancient Egyptian roots.
- It’s the name of one of my favorite characters, from one of my favorite book series.
Figured it out?
Sirius. As as in Sirius Black, Harry Potter’s godfather. As in the ‘Dog Star’, the brightest star seen in the North American sky, part of the constellation Canis Major. Taken from Osiris, Ancient Egyptian god/king.
Sooo, yeah, there’s a lot of reasons behind the name. And we’re not willing to allow anyone to try to change our minds.
I’ve been struggling with posting pregnancy updates. Found this template, and going to try to update weekly.
Without further ado…
How far along? Currently 19w4d
How big is the peanut? Mango
Total weight gain/loss? Up 9lbs at last weight in
Maternity clothes? Just lots of formally baggy clothes
Sleep? Depends on the night.
Best moment this week? Feeling/seeing GeneSplice move from the outside.
Symptoms? Not many. I forgot I’m pregnant until GeneSplice kicks me.
Food cravings? Meat and veggies
Food aversions? Sweets make me wanna vomit
Gender? Hopefully we’ll find out Thursday
Labor signs? Way too early for that
Belly button in or out? In
What I miss? Not much, really.
What I’m looking forward to? Anatomy Scan Thursday
Milestones? Halfway to term.
Bump? No bump pic this post, I look like a troll.
My hands have been itching to get to work on crocheting for Baby since the test turned positive. I tired to wait until we found out gender, but the urge to crochet became too strong when I found some white and grey ombre yarn. I didn’t like the “neutral” baby yarns, but fell in love with the yarn I’d found.
My plan is to continue with this pattern, and then use either pink or blue for a border when we find out gender next week.
