Some of these are questions I have for the general population so I thought what better way than a fun poll!

1. Did you find out or are you planning to find out the sex of the baby?
2. How many months in to the pregnancy did you register and where?
3. If applicable, did you ask the godparents during pregnancy or did you wait till after you gave birth?
4. What is the one thing you can't have to eat/drink that you will the minute you can?
5. Did you or do you plan to splurge on anything baby related? The one item that you know is not practical but just b/c you wanted it.
6. Who are you planning on having in the delivery room with you?
7. What is or was your nickname for your growing baby?

thanks for the fun!

1. Did you find out or are you planning to find out the sex of the baby?
Yes, we are having a boy! My DH thought at first it should be a surprise...my mom said "uh, that's not going to work for me!" lol!

2. How many months in to the pregnancy did you register and where? 6 mos, when my SIL badgered me to finish, at Amazon.com. We made use of their Universal Registry feature.

3. If applicable, did you ask the godparents during pregnancy or did you wait till after you gave birth?
OMG we need godparents.......

4. What is the one thing you can't have to eat/drink that you will the minute you can?
A turkey sandwich with mayo, mustard and hots, and a martini - dirty!

5. Did you or do you plan to splurge on anything baby related? The one item that you know is not practical but just b/c you wanted it.
Came really close to buying a Coach diaper bag on sale today for half price ($200) but didn't. Does that mean I still get something?

6. Who are you planning on having in the delivery room with you?
DH, mom and possibly doula (although they are really pissing me off right now!)

7. What is or was your nickname for your growing baby?
We called the baby the pop rock for a long time, but that's not working so well now that my tummy is the size of a beach ball. Now he's just "baby," or when I feel like hassling DH, "the poor baby with no name."

6. Who are you planning on having in the delivery room with you?
7. What is or was your nickname for your growing baby?
1. Did you find out or are you planning to find out the sex of the baby? Baby Girl at 20 weeks!
2. How many months in to the pregnancy did you register and where? Maybe between weeks 23 and 30? We did BRU and one local shop.
3. If applicable, did you ask the godparents during pregnancy or did you wait till after you gave birth? Hmm this was a tricky one for us and we got a lot of grief for it, sadly. We did a baptism but had church sponsors ~ they ended up being good friends of ours. We have guardians selected and someone who deal with the financials of our estate. They are all separate people though the guardian and financier are related. We selected a guardian by someone(s) who are most like us; though we could never be replaced we wanted someone(s) with similar values.
4. What is the one thing you can't have to eat/drink that you will the minute you can? I was more disappointed what I couldn't have afterwards ~ all the ice cream!!!
5. Did you or do you plan to splurge on anything baby related? The one item that you know is not practical but just b/c you wanted it. There were a few clothing items that I probably splurged on; I knew they would make good photography props, but they served no other purpose. Since she's our only (hopefully only right now) we probably splurge on her more now!
6. Who are you planning on having in the delivery room with you? It was just DH and I. The hospital I went to was really strict with letting people in for delivery though we planned to have just us.
7. What is or was your nickname for your growing baby? We didn't really have any though afterwards my husband called her peaches all the time; still does and she's 3!

1. Did you find out or are you planning to find out the sex of the baby?
Yep! I will be surprised enough to see a baby come out of me when the day comes. They told me yesterday at 12w u/s that they guessed boy!

2. How many months in to the pregnancy did you register and where?

too early for me...but I love amazon.

3. If applicable, did you ask the godparents during pregnancy or did you wait till after you gave birth?

have not thought about this!

4. What is the one thing you can't have to eat/drink that you will the minute you can?

REAL PIZZA!! I am going gluten free for the pregnancy, supposed to help with my immune issues. I have tried making pizza with gluten free crust....yuck! I can bake or find substitutes for everything else,....but I would seriously die for some good pizza!! It hurts just thinking about it.

5. Did you or do you plan to splurge on anything baby related? The one item that you know is not practical but just b/c you wanted it.

No, we are so broke after the 4 IVF's that this is not an option for us.

6. Who are you planning on having in the delivery room with you?
Thinking just my husband. My mom will want to be there, and she is a labor and delivery nurse at the hospital I will go to.....but I can just see her trying to take over because of that.

7. What is or was your nickname for your growing baby?
I don't have one, but need one.
