Frustrated!

I'm new to this board, Thanks Tara for guiding me here!

This is what I posted earlier today on a different site in hopes of getting some help.

So my DD will be 2 in December. She's showing all the signs that she's ready to potty train. I was planning on really starting today by using a timer and having her sit on her potty chair every 30 min. I got a specific potty book for her to read in the bathroom only, and she gets a mini m'n'm every time she sits without a fight, and then 2 more whenever she goes potty.

This morning I woke up to her saying "pee" and grabbing her diaper - so I took her in the bathroom. She had already gone in her diaper but it was encouraging.

So I started the timer. After 3 times going to the bathroom she finally peed on her potty chair. It was a good amount too so I figured it'd be safe to put her in panties as long as we were going every 30 min. Within the next 30 min she peed 4 times, not a lot, but just enough to get her panties wet.

So my real question is - should I back off on training right now since she seems to be going a lot more than usual? The way she's going (every few minutes and it only being a little bit) makes me think it might be like a UTI where it's hard to control to flow and it feels like you have to go all day long. She doesn't have any other symptoms of that; but does have a rash.

BUT Her rash is just like the ones she gets any time she eats peaches - and she did try peaches again for the first time in 6 months a few days ago.

Am I just psyching myself out of the potty training thing today? Or should I keep at the 30 min intervals and just not do panties until we've got a better rhytm going? Part of me is telling me that she's new to the panties so she's going just a little bit because it's a new sensation as opposed to the diapers she's always had.

Sorry for this being so long...just kind of frustrated (it's been a tough week for me anyway as DH has been gone, and will be gone for another 2 weeks.)

THANKS!

Thanks Tara (sorry that I'm posting with my hat on, my computer is acting up and if I log out of iVillage it takes an eternity to log back in).

She doesn't like it when her underwear is wet - she'd go, then immediately say "Mama, pee" and walk over to her potty chair (when I had it in the same room as we were). She'd just do that over and over each time I put a new pair on her. I'm thinking she was testing them out - trying to figure out why they were different than the diaper and going just enough to get them wet.

She again today woke up saying that she had peed and grabbing her diaper. I'm not going to push a whole lot this weekend, but keep offering it to her, hopefully after I get a break it'll be easier to focus on it.
