Another baby due this yr
Not the 4 legged kind but the 2 legged human kind :D I am 20 wks pregnant - A BIG surprise/shock/OMG/What the HELL type of thing. Anyway have been in denial for a while plus very ill for first 17wks extreme tiredness but I have survived and can now look forward without wanting to cry. This baby will be kiddie no 4 - Conor will be 8 in July, Grace is 4 1/2 and Aoife just turned 3 in Jan. This baby will be born Sept 17th by c-section. It is an elective section as first birth was very traumatic and then I had surgery on my back so Doc decided that c-sections were safest for me. Definatley not somthing I am looking forward to but at the end of the day I need to keep my back in good order. Its not easy as Seamus works away in the UAE but he gets back every 6-8 wks for a few days. Only told friends and family yesterday as I needed to get things straight in my own head but it took till the sickness passed to be able to do that :roll: Anyway thats my news so forgive any raging hormones that might surface on the forum :lol: :lol:

Aaah!
I take this was not planned/expected?
Never mind, these little things are sent to try us and, as you well know, the first seventeen years are the worst.
Once you are over those it all gets better :rofl

Re: Another baby due this yr

Dont laugh but I did the ring test on myself (I have been very accurate with other people) and its telling me a boy and going by the first scan where it was stretched out like a cat it probably is :roll: :lol:
I have another scan in 6 wks so might find out then.

Now the main tiredness and nausea is gone I am not feeling as bad or worried. I am just not looking forward to the c-section as it will be my 3rd so I know whats in store.

Yeah, Gron-ya is as close as you can get phonetically.
I love the Gaelic names, had a friend with a Siobhan long before it was fashionable!
You are probably more correct with E-fa, the rest is just regional!!
Anyway :flower congratulations!!!

My little sister is Siobhán (all of us got Irish names :D) and she made it from kindergarten all the way through to her Master's degree program without a teacher being able to pronounce it. :rofl She got everything from Sy-ob-han to Chevron.

Chevron.

Hahaha poor thing!

I always wanted to honor my Dutch heritage with some Dutch names but didn't want to saddle a poor American child with a name like Machteld or Joris.

I wouldn't say it's common here but I do hear it every so often and I'm pretty sure there are a couple people at the shows named Siobhan.

Re: Another baby due this yr

the only irish name ive ever heard irl is Ciaran Carbery-Shaha, and apparently he and his parents pronounce it wrong, though they are immigrants. His sister's name is Aisling but i have no clue how to pronounce it.

And congrats on the baby!

*edit caus Aisling is his sister, i forgot his bro's name

I know an Irish Aisling. She pronounces it like we pronounce Eileen.

Re: Another baby due this yr

Aisling is pronounced Ash - ling and how someone called Aisling is pronounced Eileen is beyond me :rofl

My hubby is Seamus with a fada over the e pronounced Shay-mus but in th UAE he is called everything under the sun, buy the most common one they say is Mr. Shamoos :lol: :lol: and always with the Mr.

One of my PET hates is in the US McGrath is always pronounced correctly. McGrath is McGra ("th" is silent) but the th is pronounced in the US :BH :roll:

I grew up with a Siobihan O'xxxx. We always knew her as "shiv-ahn" and come elementary school, had to figure out how to remember how it was spelled!

Re: Another baby due this yr

I was discussing Irish names with an American woman once and she told me her favorite boy's name was "See-moos." It took a few seconds for me to figure out that she meant Seamus. She liked that name a lot better once I told her how to pronounce it correctly.

Wow! Congrats! Hoping your C-section goes smoothly!
I've had 5 :shock: I've always recovered pretty easily. The last one was a breeze. I think cause I was in so much discomfort before! :D
Anyhow, good luck!

Wow Congratz! I missed this thread also!

My "surprise" was 6 months old on the 9th. He was #3 for us with his brother being 10 and his sister being 8. It took me a while to get used to the idea as well but now I don't know why I didn't have another one sooner! The older kids are great helpers.

Maybe we need a human - kid showoff forum! I just realized how little I know about some of you. Kids are HUGE! A really big deal!

I remember we did that once on the old forum. We should do it again.

Had a flatmate named Dagmar, when I lived in Massachusetts. Also went to school with a girl who had only last names for names... :rofl

ROFL! Reminds me of my college roommate...we were talking actors (as 17/18yos do), and who we found attractive, and she kept mentioning this "See-an" Connery. It finally dawned on me she meant Sean Connery of Bond fame. It was at that point I realised not everyone had Irish rellies. To this day I wonder how she would have pronounced my cousin Eamon's name.

Actually no, we DON'T

Actually no, we DON'T pronounce it wrong. Everyone else does. Ciarán is pronounced KEER-ahn so I have no clue where you get that we pronounce it wrong. This is his sister Aisling(ash-ling) btw. Only half our last name is Irish too, so not all of our name is Gaelic. Not all of us are immigrants either, just our mom moved here and gave birth to us here. So we do not pronounce it wrong. There's multiple pronunciations for names.... just American's don't know how to say them the correct Gaelic/Irish way.
