Melissa,

Oh, I love your nursey theme! It's exactly what I want to do for our little guy due in July. I LOVE airplanes and have wanted to do that for a kids' room since Jacob was born. I'm an aerospace engineer so all of my family has given me a hard time that I'm trying to brainwash my boys :) And teddy bears are just cuddly and sweet, perfect for our sweet peas!

Jenn - I am LOL at "Lil Cletus" - how cute! And I like both Ian and Nicholas [our first would have been named Nicholas had she been a boy]. So, sounds like you can't lose whichever of you 'wins'. [;)]

I love all the "Isabels" too ladies - we have an "Isabella" and it is such a pretty, feminine name! I love it!

Name: Kelly

Gestation: 9 weeks

Brags (good things about the pregnancy so far): the baby has survived! WooHoo! "Super baby"!

Drags (things you wish could be a bit better): I am definitely ready for "all day sickness" and "1st trimester exhaustion" to be gone. I need to function!!!!

Funky cravings? I want green beans, bananas, and MEAT! LOL!

Have you started your nursery? Not doing one this time - we did one way back 10 years ago, and the kids all ended up sleeping with us for years. It was the fanciest non-slept in room in the house LOL!

Boy/girl? don't know - still hoping for a boy for my poor outnumbered son!

Names: Michael, Raphael, or Benedict for a boy, Veronica or Gemma for a girl...

Any other info you want to share: I'm just amazed to still be a member of this club. The baby's nick name is "Gamma Ray" because of all the radiation I had before I was pregnant and the surgery - we expect him or her to come out Radioactive and possessing super powers. ;)
