What names does he like?
Why don't you get a say in the names?

You can be stubborn too. Why does he get to decide?

Pick a few really hideous names, and tell him he can choose between the hideous ones and the ones you like.

You do however run the risk of him liking the hideous ones

My DH hates almost every single name I have ever put up - boy or girl. There's only one he's kind of said he doesn't hate.

We've both realised that we have to comprimise, and choose a name that we both like, and that may take a while.

I think the answer for you is don't give in to a name you don't like - be as stubborn as he is. But don't expect your your DP to accept a name he really doesn't like either.

You need to find a middle ground, and a name you can both live with - which I'm sure will happen eventually. Don't let him get away with choosing a name without you really wanting it.

I m an 18 year old female and for the past week and a bit I ve been feeling very off in the tummy. Made worse by going on a cruise and travelling in a car when not driving. I ve also had indigestion and other chest pain associated with it. Today my tummy has had a real pain in it and I m not sure how to help it. I ve also been having really bad headaches and have had a sore throat for the past two days. Not sure if these are relevant but I thought I d add them in. My nipples and breasts have also become very sore to touch. I am sexually active and have had unprotected sex a few times recently but my partner has not finished in me. Is there a real possiblity of pregnancy? Please help me I m starting to freak out. Thanks in advanced.
