Fun to talk about names! I love Laura---hadn't really thought of that one! For a boy we are thinking Charles Anthony (calling him Charlie) and for a girl, we are stil a little up in the air, but leaning toward Jane Alice (Janie). But I feel in my heart it's a boy (for boy #3!) Other girl's names we have thought of in some combo of first and second are Margaret, Laurel, Louisa and Lydia.

Gosh Laura - You would be envious of the names my brother and his wife chose. I know I am ...
Elizabeth Mary & Katherine Grace.

The thing about Elizabeth is that it was my husbands grandmothers name. Who knows what this baby will become. Most of the time we call Sam "piggy"!

Laura Elizabeth? I think that's great! When I was a kid, that's what I wished my name was, instead of Laura Lee- (a name I thought betrayed my family's Southern roots a tad too much) and it's the name of the little girl from the "Little House on the Prarie" books, too.[:)]

Be careful and don't make the mistake I did- I named my first both my favorite names- Alicia Katherine- Second baby rolled around, and I had already used the name Katherine, so I couldn't have my Katie, like I always wanted. I wanted Alicia to be Alicia Elizabeth and my second to be Katherine Mary. Oh well- Cam has really turned into a Camille.

Babynaming is so much fun! I like the name Caleb, and I love all the Julia names- but really, I think all the women on the forum should think about naming all their girls Laura. [:p] A name with great depth and meaning...haha

Hey now...I like Laura Julianne! lol Have considered Lara Julianne too. Though, the Julia part is a big time family name (think I'm the only girl who doesn't have it in some form as a middle name, etc) and says if I'm going to use Julia, might as well put it first...so who knows. If that is the case, I think Julianna Marie just kinda rolls off the tongue, but dh is anti anything Mary-ish from his years in Chile...lol I guess everyone there was Mary or Maria, etc. So, who knows! For a boy we've been thinking Britton Andrew (but calling him by his middle name as Britton is DH's name). Still don't know about that one either?! lol I like Jacob and Michael too, but not Jake and Mike. lol

And Caleb is a good name, btw!

Hi Suz,
That's a beautiful name!! I like Caleb as well, I have a really good association with that name[:)]. Other boy names I like, Eli, Joshua, Henry, and Oden. What do you think of the name Zoe? It means Life....Glad you were feeling a little better. So how many weeks now?

Mada my dear -

I have been dog sick no matter what I have been doing. It has been that lurking OH NO IM GONNA PUKE - but you never do feeling. But today I awoke and I haven't felt yucky yet! Maybe I'm out of the woods. I have been taking Unisom at night and that helps a lot. As far as gender ... pink is my longing. I actually love the name Laura (one of my best friends name is Laura) So that is top of the list right now. I'm sure altuiq would be tickled LOL. Laura Elizabeth.. Do you like it? I also love Caleb for a boy... but DH hates it.
Oh well. I suppose it will be easier once we find out the gender later in pregnancy.
Anyone up for playing the name game - or is it played out???

Suzy,

You might want to try Meclizine, instead of Unisom for the nausea. It is Dramamine's Less Drowsy formula, and you have to look for Meclizine. It really helps to curb the nausea, and is just as safe as Unisom. B6 actually made me sicker!
Take care,
