People are nice.

People's reactions to you change when you are pregnant. They are also so supportive and friendly. There have been lots of people coming up to me at work that I have never met to ask me about my baby and how I am doing. And I have had offers of pretty much every item of baby gear that I should ever need. I am sure I would never actually have to buy anything myself.

I haven't put my finger on what actually it is, maybe people feel a sense of care/duty/community/responsibility of a new baby? Not sure but it is cool whatever the reason.

Disability

People in a certain salary bracket and having certain fancy job titles at Tip Top get to park in the top cark park, whilst the rest, including myself, park in the lower cark park. This requires walking up 4 flights of stairs each morning and evening. Great for a extra bit of exercise in the day but not great when you are 8 months pregnant, have a baby pushing on your lungs and have high blood pressure.

So they have given me a disability sticker to put on my car. This gives me permission to park up the top- although I am not sure pregnancy is a disability, but apparently it is....? The other question is- can I use it at the shopping mall? :)

Naming a baby is hard work. I am glad that we have another 10 weeks before we have to make a decision. I am sure our baby is going to be nameless for the first couple of days/weeks/months. There are a bunch of names we like but they mostly all have issues. You know, like we knew someone once whose cat was named that (not kidding- cats should not have human names:) Or there is a friends friend has just named their kid with the same name and there is a dilemma over whether it is socially acceptable to use the same name.

And this is just for a first name- still got to come up with a second!!!! Just as well the last name is sorted.

So if you have any bright ideas for baby names let me know. There will be a $100 cash prize for the winner hehehehe :):)
