Sandy - Take your temp when you first wake up. I was taking my temp at like 4:30 in the morning because I knew I would have to get up with Gabby - I stopped temping....But they suggest to not take it twice because it can be confusing. If you are finding that you can't always take it at the same time, then try to figure out a time that would work. Ash - Glad you had a good time. I so wish I could do that. I keep talking about maybe just going to my friends house for an over night.
Ash - I've been thinking about your weekend away... trying to figure out how I can have my weekend away.
Mari- From what I've been reading it says to temp if you get up. I try not to get up to pee but sometimes I have to. And sometimes David gets up too but not as much anymore thank goodness. I guess I could take it when I first wake up and then again when I wake up later and see what the difference is. I wish my bladder would cooperate at night but unfortunately I guess that was one of the downfalls of having David.

Thanks ladies for your responses on the eczema. I've been to the drug store and bought all the recommendations so we'll see what works for her! So far it hasn't been that bad so I'm hoping she won't have too many flare-ups.
Also thanks for the encouragement about what the OT said at our appointment. The more I think about it, the more irritated I get about someone seeing a child for less than 5 minutes and making a statement like that. But that has also helped me to be less upset about it because it was based on virtually nothing and has such little merit. Sometimes people should really think before they open their mouths. :smileyfrustrated:
Phew - I finally caught up on all the posts.Sandy - Sorry for the YI, those suck! Make sure to add probiotics to your diet, I usually take one every day and I eat a yogurt a day. I tend to get them a bit more than "usual". Did your doc give you something for it, I always ask for Difulcan, it's a pill and it's one dose and it's awesome! Ash - Have fun on your night away that sounds awesome. DH always tells me to do that and if I get pregnant I might end up doing that this summer sometime.Andi - I would forget about the comment. If you want I can ask my cousin about something like that she is a pediatric OT.
Waving hi to everyone else! Sorry too tired for personals. But I did read them all. Thanks for the support on the TTC & BF'ing. I know it can be done and I am feeling much more positive about it today than I was the other day. my OPK gave me a + result this morning and I had some EW CM yesterday and today! So DH and I BD a few times. so I am hoping....now just waiting.I had an awesome visit with my grandpa today. I haven't been super close to him and I have felt super guilty about it. He is 86 (almost 87) and in a nursing home. I have never really known how to talk with him and he has trouble hearing so it makes it difficult. So I usually only visit him when my mom or parents or some other family member is there. So I haven't seen him in way too long. I bit the bullet and just went with Gabby today by myself and I had only planned on staying for like 30 minutes, but I ended up being there for like an hour! He loved seeing Gabby and had a lot of fun with her. Gave her 2 quarters he won at cards the night before - he gives out quarters to all the kids/adults - he gave a bunch out at our wedding :smileyhappy: But we had a great time and I think it really made his day. I am going to try to go a few times a month. I can't go next weekend but maybe the weekend after that. He won't be around forever and I really want to make his days happy and be there with him while he is here.anyway we had an awesome mama & daughter day. Even though I learned not to give her one of those smoothie pouches of baby food in the car without anyone back there. I looked back and she apparently started playing with it. While it was annoying it was so adorable!
