I passed the GD test, and What’s in a Name?

Thank GOD. I had absolutely no interest in having to do the three hour test, so this is very good news.

The rest of my OB appointment was uneventful. I just told her I was leaving. Didn’t get too much into the details but I think she got the idea. She reviewed the blood tests with me, gave me an actual prescription for some iron that is supposed to be easily digested called “Repliva” or something like that. I have some samples to see if it agrees with me.

She said the liver functions were high, but not alarmingly so unless they continue to go up, but she gave me a lab order to get a complete metabolic panel just in case.

She thought that the CMV looked like it was an old exposure, so she didn’t think I needed to repeat that, which is what I figured.

That’s about all the news on the medical front. Onto something more fun – Baby names!

Here are two cool baby name websites I just found out about.

#1 Baby Namescape

This site takes the SS office popularity scale one step further and actually lets you see by hospital which are the top 10 names! Very cool for determining what is too trendy and popular in YOUR particular area.

# 2 What Your Name Means (based on Numerology)

This is really interesting, because when I put in Jasper and our last name, it came up with something very different then when I put in the other name that was at the top of our list (Phoenix) . The unusual part was that the differences were in line of what I would perceive from someone with that name..

For example, Jasper’s meaning was all about being a humanitarian, a caregiver, an idealist, ie:

The number 6 Expression provides you a truly outstanding sense of responsibility, love, and balance. The 6 is helpful and ever conscientious, making you quite capable of rectifying and balancing any sort of inharmonious situation. You are a person very much inclined to give help and comfort to those in need. You have a natural penchant for working with the old, the young, the sick, or the underprivileged. Although you may have considerable creative and artistic talents, the chances are that you will devote yourself to an occupation that shows concern for the betterment of the community.

Where as for Pheonix, it was all about being a leader, a charismatic risk taker:

A number 1 Expression denotes the skilled executive with keen administrative capabilities. You must develop the capacity to be a fine leader, sales executive, or promoter. You have the tools to become an original person with a creative approach to problem solving, and a penchant for initiating action. Someone may have to follow behind you to handle the details, but you know how to get things going and make things happen. You have a good mind and the ability to use it for your advancement. Because of these factors, you have much potential for achievement and financial rewards. Frequently, this expression belongs to one running a business or striving to achieve a level of accomplishment on ones talents and efforts. You have little need for much supervision, preferring to act on your own with little restraint. You are both ambitious and determined. Self-confident and self-reliant must be yours, as you develop a strong unyielding will and the courage of your convictions.

Makes you think doesn’t it?

Amanda, thanks for the recommendation! I’ve heard of milk thistle actually. I’d have to see if it’s safe for Pregnancy.

Thanks for the congrats California girl, congrats on the halfway mark!

LOL Claudia..

Farah, wow I can’t believe you were considering Phoenix too! Everyone that I told that looked at me like I had 3 heads so I thought it was pretty out there :)

Thanks Stephanie, it was the only name both Jeff and I could agree on!

Stephanie says:

I love the name Jasper. It was one of top two boy’s names last summer, but we ended up having a girl. :-)

Farah says:

Woooooo hoo for the GD test and telling the dr you are leaving!

Thank you for shaing that baby name site. We have not picked a name yet. Pheonix is one of our options also!

Claudia says:

That baby namescape site made me laugh. I’ve always been a stickler about not picking a name on the top 10 list.

When I looked up the hospital my son was born it at, it was the #1 name! Ha! So much for that.

At least this next baby’s name isn’t there.

Those sites are awesome! Thanks for posting!

And congrats on passing the GD test and leaving your doc!

By the way, he’s been taking it for about seven years now. No adverse problems and no more liver problems.

AmandaG says:

My husband used to have a high liver count because he gets migranes and takes a lot of pills for them. One day I looked online and found a vitamin (or mineral) called Milk Thistle that is a natural way of lowering your liver enzymes. Rather than begin taking prescription pills for lowering the enzyme count, my husband decided to take Milk Thistle (against Dr. recommendation) and the Dr. was blown away by his results when his blood was tested three months later. I don’t know if it’s ok to take it while pregnant, but you may want to check it out!
