I'm not sure if it's hormones making this situation seem worse that it really is or not but it's bugging me.
Bit of a back story- I've had reproductive issues for last 4 years or so and was incredibly Lucky to be blessed with a beautiful baby girl. Before we even started ttc her, my partner and I had a list of dream baby names. Our daughter got one of those names.
Fast forward two years and after 12 months of trying we have been blessed with another bundle (Im 17.5 weeks and booked in for my scan in a week and a half's time!)
Now a lady I used to work with has a daughter a few months younger than mine and she named her daughter something very similar to ours. Now shes pregnant again (19 weeks) and she just found that she's having a baby boy! She told me the name she had picked for him as her first choice and it just so happens that it is our 1St choice also.
While I don't have a good friendship (our girls have had a few play dates and catch ups- but don't really get together often) I feel like I shouldn't name our baby the same name.
This lady is quite competitive, often it feels like she's intentionally trying to play keeping up with the Joneses.
I know we haven't found out the gender of our baby yet but I still feel this way. Im excited for her because every new life is worth celebrating.
I feel awful that I can't move past it because it seems so trivial.
Can you ladies help me? Have you been in similar situation? How did it end?
Is it just my hormones making me feel like it's a big deal when it's not?
