Breanna Jean, it is a family namesake for both sides just as Spencer Michael. A couple weeks before we found out we were having a little girl Kyle's middle brother, Bryan, passed away unexpectedly at the young age of 28. We were devastated and continue to mourn his passing as the days pass. When we lost Bryan I started to secretly hope we were having a boy so that we could honor Bryan by using his first or middle name for our new son. But, we were surprised with a little girl and I was so sad we couldn't honor him. I started researching the name Bryan and came across the name Breanna (Brianna) which is the feminine version of the name Bryan. There was NO question that would be her name. My husband completely agreed, it couldn't have been easier. Her middle name, Jean, is my mom's name and my middle name. We always knew if it was a girl her middle name would be Jean so we were pleased when the two names fit so well together, it was meant to be. We were so happy! Happy we found a name that we could honor her Uncle Bry. We call her Bre mostly or baby Bre, Spencer has been saying sissy and Bre, it's the cutest thing. He isn't exactly sure what's going on yet but he knows something is different. He is constantly taking her clothes out of the closet and saying sissy, sissy and he will kiss my belly but, he doesn't understand that there's a baby inside mommy's belly. And let me just say, I cannot believe that he will be 19 months tomorrow and a month shy of 2 when Bre makes her arrival. Where has the time gone? He is going to be a great big brother and a wonderful helper to mommy. He's very into throwing things in the trash, which means numerous times a day I am digging through the trash to make sure he threw nothing important away. Only once has he thrown away his juice :)
I am still receiving progesterone shots to prevent another pre-term labor, I have had 6 so far, only 14 more to go. They give the shot to me in my bottom, depending on the nurse that does the injection will depend on how I feel afterwards. Some nurses are great and I feel nothing during or after. Others, not so much. Some nurses poke me too high and not into a muscle so my hip will hurt for about 4 days. Other times I am just sore for a day or two, which isn't too bad. I am extremely proud of myself for taking these shots like a champ because I am such a wimp when it comes to needles. I haven't complained once and don't intend too, it's not for me it's for Bre. The shots do tend to make me tired for about two days which is normal, but I am really wanting my energy back and I feel like I only get a few days a week with decent energy. But, it's all worth it. February will be here before we know it.
