oh, and poor ds1- he had his adult teeth growiing in BEHIND his baby teeth on the lower front. The baby teeth weren't even loose, and one adult tooth is halfway in. So he had to have FOUR teeth removed today. Poor baby greensad.gif The adult teeth will move into the right place, so that's good.


Yay for docs seeing reason. ;)

 

I had the same issue with adult teeth growing in behind baby teeth. I was 6 or 7 and had to have 1-2 teeth pulled. If it helps, it wasn't traumatic for me. I actually have only vague and fairly pleasant memories of it.

I started a supp cheat sheet wiki:
http://www.mothering.com/community/wiki/vitamin-and-supplement-cheat-sheet

Not much besides structure there yet. Feel free to fill in more!

Shannon, I haven't clicked over, but yay!  Good idea, I will try to help out.  (haven't read anything before this page....)

 

As for today... kids seem tired and DD doesn't feel great and we said we'd show up at a neighbor's 8pm Christmas music thing at her church.  My kids are usually in bed at 8pm, not always asleep, but sometimes.  I am, uh, concerned that tomorrow's going to be ugly (and we'll see how tonight goes).

It could be I suppose, especially since it seems like I'm getting sensitive to more antibiotics. First it was the neosporin/bacitracin. Then the Cipro (but when they switched me to a different one, the itchy eczema rash stayed until I was off that one too... so maybe that is what it is). Then the Keflex. I'm on minocycline and Bactrim for the lyme. A couple time over the summer I had to add augmentin to those for UTIs. I'll bring it up with the osteo next time I see him. It's an intersting theory. Of course when I'm through surgery and I have an itchy rash all over my torso and I can't reach anyplace to itch, it's not when I want to be fighting lyme die-off besides, if that is what it is. I wonder how to tell which it is though. I do know that when my regular doctor saw it when I had the Cipro reaction, he said it wasn't a typical abx allergy rash, it was eczema.... so... hmmm....

 

Feel crappy today. Nauseous. Still have a hole in my boob and am soooo not liking it. Terrifying me. I made pizza last night but should have made two. I was still hungry afterwards. I wanted more. But the kids didn't want the cheese (the pine nut ricotta stuff) so tonight I mixed it with left over pizza sauce and rice noodles and made it like baked ziti. DH is rattling around the kitchen now trying to figure out a new chili recipe that's still safe for everyone, but using stew beef instead of ground beef. So he's making marinade now.

 

Does anybody use Allergy Grocer? I got a 10% off coupon code in an email if anyone wants to order anything.
 

We say no videogames, but each of the older kids have a KOL (kid AOL) account. It lets you say how many minutes they can be on it on different days of the week. We have it set on 1 hour on weekdays and 2 hours on weekends. I get a report about what websites they've been on, and I have to approve websites. Other than that no videogame systems. And the lake is an electronics free zone (except the laptop) so even people who come to visit, have to leave their Nintendos or whatever in their cars. We even say no cellphones at the campfire so there's no texting teenagers. My kids play wii at friends' houses, and my father has a wii for when they go to his house, but I just don't feel like they need it. We have a videoplayer for the car, but that's only for trips over 4 hours (we figure they're used to the 3-ish hours to the lake so it shouldn't be that hard). And it's funny because DS and DD1 already have their noses in  a book so they don't know where anything is. DD2, who's 5 but goes through all her books in the first 5 minutes in the car, always knows the directions to everywhere because she's actually looking around. So when we turn on a road, she'll say oh are we going to xxx. And it's weird because most kids it seems like have no idea how to get anywhere because they're not looking out the windows anymore. Rant done.

The reason I came on here in the first place... DS has been snapping, clapping, and slapping himself for the last week and it's driving me buggy. Is it B6 or B12? Mamafish - where are you? Jacqueline's name change is the only one I've figured out. All the other ones are still a mystery to me.

I think it was B6 and mag last time. 

 

I've been wondering where Deb is too, hopefully just chilling and enjoying the holiday season.

mag or b6, or lower protein, assuming it's ammonia stimming.

 

(Theloose = whoMe)

 

I wish we could do lower tech.  Dh grew up with a (full size) TV and nintendo in the family car back in the 80s.  I'm not going to make an issue of it.  At least for us, videos/games seem to put dd in a calmer mood.  Screen time makes me cranky if I play too long. 

 

Filled in more of the wiki!

post #288 of 770

Stupid wikis... I just want to go and start a bunch of them.  Organize all this allergy info.  That's how you know I've been eating the wrong stuff.  You know how Kathy cooks, JR cleans and Tanya reads?  Yeah.  I start new threads/wikis and try and organize information.  I should not be organizing biochem threads right now.  I should be figuring out christmas gifts and planning a birthday party and taking care of sick kids.  At least dinner's mostly done.

 


So what wiki's next?

Wait... So I clean, Kathy cooks and Tanya reads when we've eaten the wrong stuff? Does that mean I have an excuse to eat the wrong stuff? mischievous.giftomato.gifpinktongue.gif

 

Speaking of eating the wrong stuff... I bought Oreo cookies. DS1 got some kind of snack bar thing (which is really tiny.. looked much bigger on the package) which is sort of cookie-like (should've bought the cookies) for a treat, so I got Oreos for everyone else.

On a totally unrelated note... Remember my cousin who passed away a couple of months ago? Yeah well... Apparently his fiancee found out that she's pregnant and due in the spring not long afterwards. brokenheart.gifjoy.gif (yes, I know those two don't go together well, but I think you can understand why I've used them both)

If you want a clean house at the expense of more important things and eating the wrong foods puts you in that place?  Go for it.  I want oreos.  Still.  I took too long trying to find a chocolate cookie recipe last time and we ended up with cake instead.  I want oreos.

 

Those smilies seem perfectly appropriate.  only I think I'd put them in the opposite order.

 

I'm calling dd sick, not reacting, and ds miserable.  Dd took a long nap this afternoon.  I wonder how late she'll be up tonight.  I wonder when she'll be well finally?

Hi Mamas,

I'm here just to make sense of all the supplements and allergies/detoxing.

I will give an introduction to us all once I have a handle on what is best to write about us.

 

I have noticed similiarities in supplements that cross over between adrenal support/ liver support or detox/ and allergies.  Very interesting.

 

Where have you been able to buy the davinci B12 spray on line?

 

I have read the Perque vitamin site, about c flushes.  I have just been using Natural factors ascorbic acid for years.  Do you think its necessary to switch to Perque?  It is likely though that I couldn't afford it . . .

This the the B12 amount Shannon:

 

 

Quote:
 B-12 MC Spray 1 fl oz (B12MC)
Manufacturer: Davinci Labs
Retail Price: $29.60
Supplement Facts
Serving Size: 1 Spray (0.2 ml)
Servings per Container: 150

Amount per Serving
Folic Acid 100 mcg
Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxal 5-Phosphate) 2 mg
Vitamin B12 (as Methylcobalamin & Hydroxocobalamin) 1,000 mcg

Other Ingredients: glycerin, water.

 

 Not a therapeutic dose of P5P?

 

What was the issue with different forms of folate supps for different genetics that Tanya mentioned?  I have Solgar folate, it made me feel weird. 

 

Totally re: your comment about STBX and his genetics.  And thyroid issues clearly.

Speaking of thyroid we (school nurse, ped) think DS's reactions at recess might be to cold air.  It's happened twice.  I posted about his mystery reaction before but it just happened again last week and this time he went to the nurse and I went right in.  No rash or hives, just itchy all over.  Apparently this is well known to nurse and ped. If this is not body temp/thyroid related I'll eat my Starr book.

When I'm doing a flush (which I actually need to do this morning, fun times), I use half Perque vitC and half Now brand sodium ascorbate.  I didn't ask to get the official ok from my HCP but I've been doing it this way for years and it seems to work just fine (no difference I can see compared to when I was using all Perque for the flushes).  And for daily use, I just use SA, I can't afford the Perque stuff everyday either--never mind getting the kids to take it.  Ugh.  This way, one bottle lasts quite a while.  I don't know how much AA you're taking, I find it irritates my stomach in high doses. 

 

Shannon's written the most about 5-mthf and folinic acid, I don't know the topic nearly as well as she.  She may have it in a wiki now.

 

So everyone, I had this weird dream about being pregnant with twins--I think I knew from the very beginning, a couple times in the past few years I've distinctly felt ovulation cramps from both left and right within a 24-hour window... but I'm definitely not pregnant right now.  And the extra-funny thing was, one of you was also expecting twins just a few weeks after me--I think it was you, Firewithin--my dreams are never indicative of what's going to happen in the future, just interesting that growing 2 babies at once is apparently the way my brain says hey Tanya, get on the ball to eat better and finish up the health stuff you've got planned, but even with a stress like that, it was going to be totally normal in our little group here. 
 

post #295 of 770
The thought of twins absolutely terrifies me. They don't run in the family. But yeah, you'd (one would) need a LOT of support to grow two healthy babies at once.

Mimi, it's all so very confusing at the beginning, I hate to see anyone try and figure out the supps on their own. Feel free to ask questions even without an intro. And if there's anything I can fill in on that wiki to make things easier, just let me know! (btw, you know the perque vit C flush is a specific way of taking C to flush your body, right? It's not your everyday vit C supplementing, or even just finding bowel tolerance.) Oh, and unless have to do zero sals like Jane, yasko, jarrow and perque all have b12 without the folic acid, either as drops or sublingual.

So what wiki's next?


I cook when I'm mellow (or hungry), I clean when I'm mad (which is why my house is rarely clean all at one time) or when people are coming over, and I read the rest of the time. I had a stack of like 30-40 books to read while I was recovering but that didn't happen. I'm going through about one a day at the moment though. Whenever I'm stressed or in pain, I read, because it lets me focus on something else. I definitely don't do wiki's since I don't have any clue what you're talking about! Though I like spreadsheets. And post-it notes. The only pills that aren't making me nauseous right now are cell salts. All the bigger pills make me want to heave. Does that mean anything?

 When I eat the wrong stuff I run to the bathroom or lay on ice. Oooooh, I miss oreos. Haven't thought about those in a while. Oreo Blizzard was my favorite Dairy Queen treat....

 

That's kind of cool about your cousin, if his fiance is happy about it. Which from your smilies, it sounds like she is. So that's neat.


I'd better get some B6. He's already on Mag. 

post #297 of 770
Tanya- I've totally had twin thoughts/dreams since the beginning of this pregnancy. But I'm pretty sure there's only 1 in there. orngtongue.gif I wouldn't mind twins at all though- I'd love to have 2 siblings for DD, but am not overly excited about another pregnancy after this one since they seem to completely wreck my body...
post #298 of 770

Kathy - I've used allergy grocer but MUCH prefer navanfoods.com

post #299 of 770

My grandmother had 3 sets of fraternal twins, and only 1 singleton.  My mom had a stillborn twin brother, she has a single sister, twin brothers, and my grandmother lost twin girls.  Amazingly, no other twins have turned up yet despite my mom having 2 children and her sister having 3.  There are so far 5 great-grandchildren, no twins.  I keep thinking it's going to be me, and if I turn up pregnant now from DH's indiscretion a little over a week ago...well it would be my fourth pregnancy (which increases twin risk in and of itself).  IDK what I would do, either be excited or cry LOL.  I definitely would have to send DS to school next year LOL!!  Maybe my sister will have the twins. ROTFLMAO.gif

post #300 of 770

My sister has 2 sets of fraternal twins (3rd and 6th pregnancies) and 3 singletons. My other sister has a set of identical twin girls (3rd pg) and one singleton. I've been pregnant 2 times... can you see why I'm reluctant to get pregnant again? lol

 

Aside from my incredible odds because of my sisters, both of my grandfathers were singletons with a set of twin brothers. I think there's a set of triplets in there somewhere too.
