So, I can't quite remember when my last period was (haven't been keeping a record) but I'm either a few days overdue or due in a few days. But I've been having a few symptoms that I had with my last pregnancy that make me suspect I may be pregnant.

I had a test left from last time, and its expiry date was 4/2012. I used it anyway and got a faint line. I will do another test, but not tonight.

But until then, what do you think? Is a pregnancy test 7 months out of date still to be believed?

If so, what do you think of Jacen for a boy?

I think you should shake your Magic 8 ball for a true answer.

Jacen sucks.

I shook the magic 8 ball but the answer was unclear(blue).

Jay-Sen

I feel like I should like Lucien, and I think DH might have suggested it last time. But it doesn't quite roll of the tongue easily for me, and also reminds me a bit of Lucifer.

I think it would still be good. The one that I got my BFP on was a lot more out of date than that! I didn't get too excited though just incase but it was correct.

So this is a joke?  Or you're being a t*at?  Or both?


The pregnancy test bit isn't a joke. I think I may actually be totes preggo. But as for calling a child of mine Jacen, probably not.

Now I'm really hoping it's twins so I can tell everyone that's what we're calling them.

I've always been a little partial to:
Girls
Xtal (Crystal)
MLE (Emily)
Tiffanee Diamond
Haighleigh
Teighlor
Sierra- Leonie
Ricca-Donna
Brytney

Boys
Stealth Wolf
Djuke
Kameera
Maffew
Oskah
Mavrik
Alixzander
Koady

I always like a little twist so that names are a bit on the la-dee-da side. wink.gif

Anyway-congrats on your BFP! A line is a line in my books, doesn't matter if it's out of date. Just thought I'd also add some names to consider biggrin.gif

ETA- not as in the member la di dah! And the names are just a bit of fun, not serious suggestions.

Probably worth retesting in a week or two with one in date ....  Seriously though....
The problem with these uneek names (spelling) is that the poor child will have to spend the rest of their life explaining and spelling out their name and then have to constantly correct other peoples attempts to spell it.
