Think of a name!

Okay bloggy people and anonymous readers - do you like a challenge?

I'm tasked with thinking of alternative names for my second book 'Blue Line Blues'.
Now we like that name, we think it is catchy but we don't want to put off non-pregnant/wanting to be pregnant/ parent type people.
So... we want to play about with other names.
This book is coming out in September of this year, publishing by Poolbeg, and I'm VERY excited about it. This book is very, very special to me and I want a name that stands out from the crowd.

Now originally it was called
Signed, Sealed, Delivered (carrying on the song theme from RD&T)

And the other suggestion I've received since sending a panicked email out to my bessie mates is
Keeping Mum

Now to save me from driving myself to distraction by googling Carpenter's lyrics, John Denver songs and Stevie Wonder anthems, please post your suggestions below.

And here, to help you, is the blurb

Aoife is 32 and in an on/off relationship with sexy singer Jake. When she finds out she is pregnant, he decides the relationship is most definitely off and leaves her before the pee has time to dry on the stick. Desperate to get him back- and convinced she can- Aoife doesn't tell her parents back home in Derry about her impending arrival until her episiotomy stitches are healing. She then has to return home to face the music - baby in tow and sanity absent without leave. Meanwhile her best friend has been keeping a secret of her own. Beth and her husband Dan have been trying to get pregnant for the past two years. According to the doctors there is no medical reason fortheir failure to conceive. And if there is no reason, there can't be a problem can there? Add a gorgeous gardener, an overbearing mother, a perfectly annoying sister-in-law and a well meaning aunt, - all with secrets of their own - into the mix and you have 'BLUE LINE BLUES'

How about just "Singing the Blues"?
