    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...

    I'm curious, Dr. Blade. Does this list of diagnoses sound plausible to you?

    This is the first time I have ever messaged anybody so I might sound a little weird and I apologize if I do. However, on one of your older posts when you were stating some names you liked for your little girl, you posted one and I fell head over hills for it.

    Photini. Even though it kind of sounds like a mixed drink, I thought it was beyond adorable and I was wondering, what kind of middle name would you place with a name like that? I've tried ALL kinds of names from common like Hollis, Bonnibel, and Lark to the extreme like Cosette and Pearl. Nothing fits. Since you know of this name, I thought it'd be a question for you. (:
