I thought MSM was sulfur (not already converted)?
I keep thinking about the BWP bagels I made which turned out reminding me of English muffins.

I wish I could get to sleep in a bed!

A good reason to choose the (copper-free) multi, IMO. Maybe check if you're low, M2S? Most of us aren't but I guess a few of us are (JR? Ms-I-Need-Potassium-messing-with-all-the-norms ).

Though I think the Basic Nutrients multivits seem like they're probably supposed to be helped along on some things with one of the multi-mineral supps. Those mineral supps have some serious amounts of zinc.

Speaking of potassium...
The Basic Nutrients supplies it whereas the prenatal doesn't.

And how do you check if you're low in copper? I'm still trying to figure that one out. Some people say blood tests are fine for checking for *deficiency*, but I don't know how much I trust them...

Back to sorting baby clothes and diapers I think baby's possibly dropped

I had other stuff to respond to, but it involves more thought and I'm just stealing seconds on the computer. Must remember to come back to them...

Although I hated it when DS3 dropped. Waddling around hurt.

Not all the Thorne multis have copper though... there's 5 different formulations.

I was thinking either pendulum, since M2S seems darn good with hers, or a taste test kit. Not exactly traditional, but...

Woo-hoo on dropping babies. I don't think either of mine dropped til labor--DD _seemed_ to drop, she felt different, but my midwife said she was still pretty high (so way-high to pretty-high?).

Remind us how many weeks you are? Cause you were 41w+ for DD, right?

Kathy, on your lemon water (random, I know) what about stevia as a sweetener? Then it'd be more like lemonade.

Just had to get on here to post that. Random.

caution: one-handed nak

typos likely

I was just going to post my recent findings with Epsom salts and the ammonia issue! DS's pee has totally changed from being kinda smelly to not at all. (He still wears a diaper during the night so that's how I can tell.)

We are all about the Epsom salts here.... thanks for that website Shannon!

I'm considering a 50lb order from Salt Works.

Re: melatonin

This didn't work for me but I only got up to 5mg I think. 5HTP didn't work for either myself or DS. Jarrow's methyl B12 5000 sublingual however was the BOMB for getting me to sleep at night and sleeping better. When I did the research I concluded it was B12 which produces melatonin so that I why I tried it for that reason. I still take one every week or so just because.

Re: supplement purchasing

I adore IHerb. I'm now a VIP so I get 10% off $60 orders and 12% off $120. I've been ordering monthly for many years and only had 2 problems which they quickly corrected. If anyone wants my referral code to save $5 off first order, PM me.

Otherwise I get our CLO from Radiant Life and DS's salmon oil vitamin D from Vital Choice. I just use whatever vitamin D is lanolin derived D3 I can find. I've done Carlson's drops in past... Tanya would those work for you guys? I've been getting a free bottle of 30 - 5000 IU from IHerb several months in a row, they have a Free and Trials section that's always fun.

Re: another d-lactate free possibility?

www.culturelle.com is human strain L. Rhamnosus and is now dairy and FOS free, I think it used to have trace dairy and FOS?

Aren't you all so proud of me I combined my thoughts into one instead of serial posting like I usually do??

Oh and the yeast problems I've been noticing I think were not b/c of going GF but b/c our basement flooded again. And we have a hole in ceiling above our lovely bow window in the dining room from someone's refusal to fix the gutters and resulting water damage from this year's heavy rain and snow.

I have many stories like this. I have no doubt mold is central issue in DS's and my health. Oh but I'm just crazy dontcha now. And I overdo things. Everyone's basement floods, and smells when the forced hot air heat comes on. Everyone has a roof leak here and there don't they?

I cannot wait to get the &^% out of this house!!! At least I won't be sad the husband will be getting our (once) beautiful center entrance colonial in the divorce.
