    A consistent value of 1-2 on a quantitative serum test means you are not pregnant. It's within the standard range of error on the instrument analyzer-- which is why anything less than 5 is called...

    Well, technically if you're not pregnant your HCG should be 0. But laboratory-wise anything less than 5, I believe, is called negative.

    A TV ultrasound can visualize a gestational sac when your...

    Here's the usual doctor hedge: it *could* be anything, and diagnosing you over the internet is not exactly best practices.

    I don't have anything picked out, as in set in stone. My favorites currently are Blaise Gregory Tariq and Fleur Sylvana Sahar, but they are quite subject to change. I also am trying to decide if I am...

    I think it's waaaaaay too much. It's bookends, a matched set, etc.

    But I do think Scarlett is a good stylistic match for Jameson and actually (Miss O'Hara aside) sounds more tough and rugged than...

    Well, Arianna is a bit trendy now (not a slur-- it shows people have good taste). So I'll say she picked something else in that same 'girly, classic, popular' vein:

    I think MarceLINE and floRINa share too many sounds. Michaela is a lovely and dignified name-- I think the Makayla trend is thankfully past, and we can enjoy Michaela as the old, handsome classic...

    I would like to try to have a third, starting in mid-2015 or so. I will officially be of Advanced Maternal Age and so even though I would prefer a larger gap between Cassia and Lucky #3, I think...

    Blaise is pretty close to perfect for me. It has a great history, wonderful namesakes, is rare but pronounceable. It has that approachable-but-elegant vibe I swoon for.

    In my experience with Japan your child will likely not be seen as a "real Japanese"-- he'll always be a gei-jin, even with a Japanese name and being fluent in Japanese and a Japanese dad. Which can...

    Cecilia doesn't literally mean blind. It's an old Roman *family* name-- much like a surname-- and a relatively well-established one at that. Somewhere way back in the mists of time some Roman man was...

    My favorite is Eloise-- it's a really nice phonetic contrast to Jillian and Oliver (which are L-heavy) and fits the tone quite well.
