30 weeks… And the Name Reveal!


How far along are you? 30 weeks (less than 10 weeks till we meet our baby girl!)

Size of Baby:  Head of Cabbage

Favorite Maternity clothes this week? Dresses, we had perfect So Cal weather (high 70’s, low 80’s)

Stretch marks? No

How’s your Sleep?  Still hard to fall asleep with all the movement in my belly but I’ve been sleeping pretty heavy once I do fall asleep.  I probably get up once in the middle of the night but I can definitely tell my body is craving sleep because I’ve been getting almost 9 hours every night and I’m still exhausted.

Favorite moment this week? Bode noticing my belly more and even giving more kisses to his ‘sister’.  It’s actually funny how he all of a sudden noticed my belly more; although he hasn’t felt her kick yet I’ve been trying to get him to feel for it more lately.

Do you miss anything? Wine, after a fun girl’s weekend in Carlsbad it was rough not getting to unwind with a cocktail or two…

Do you have any Food cravings? Donuts (I might have to give into this one at least 1x this week)

Anything making you Nauseas? No, but I do have a little nausea in general in the afternoons so I make sure I’m eating small meals throughout the day.

Mood?  I’ve been really emotional lately, I think because the constant movement reminds me all day long how pregnant I am and its going so fast.

What are you looking forward to? Having a clean house again (LOL)!  I usually have someone come clean my house 1x/month and since we’ve been having construction going on to get this nursery up and ready it’s now 3 weeks past the date I would have had a clean house.  I have to admit it’s my favorite day of the month, and it’s so cute now when we get home Bode and I go check out every room in the house and he tells me “oooh, it’s so clean mama” with each room we view.  Next week I’ll finally have a clean house again!

As promised I have decided to reveal our baby girl’s name which was not easy!  We had already picked out Bode’s name when we were in college together around 2004, but we’d never really agreed on a baby girl name for some reason.  There are so many beautiful names out there but it had to be something that worked with our last name – Hank.  I definitely wanted a feminine name and not a name that could be mistaken for a male if it was written on paper.  My husband wanted a name that he could also shorten to give her a nickname, because I guess that’s what every ‘Coach’ err I mean ‘Dad’ wants.  After searching through thousands of names I came up with our top 5 baby girl names:

  • Brielle
  • Adeline
  • Shaelyn
  • Allyson
  • Jordana

And it was an obvious choice from the beginning that we both agreed our favorite was Allyson or Ally (we had different opinions on our 2nd favorite)… So without further ado, we look forward to introducing the newest addition to our family sometime in late May- Allyson Honor Hank.

  1. When I read all the choices I really hoped you would pick Allyson, because it is such a great name and has the best nicknames. I can’t wait to see what you two have made this time. Bode is adorable. Best of luck to all of you!
