I just don't want to take the time to turn and topstitch all of them. Call me lazy!

Aww thanks. I don't have a serger though I want one! I just put right sides together, although the terry cloth is the same on both sides, and left a few inches unsewed. Then turned & topstitched.

I want to make a bunch of wipes, but don't want to turn and topstitch that many times!

enablers!!!! DH and I go back and forth about it, and I mentioned before that we're considering adoption. It would be God's sense of humor to get me all going in the adoption route; probably have just adopted or something and then find out I'm pregnant. He's funny that way.

Well, the Dr says I have excema

ETA: Oh well, I'm just glad it's nothing contagious - contagious hand issues and babies wouldn't be a great mix

Re: B2B - Back to Basics Wet n' Wild Wednesday

Wow! I missed a lot of chatting today! We went to a toddler play gym at a community center. It was a little out of my comfort zone since there are lots of toys shared by lots of kids, but it wasn't a TON of kids there, so that made me feel a bit better, and all the kids looked fairly healthy. Not that you can tell. But Levi kept putting things in his mouth, so I'm probably going to be on edge for a few days. I wish I wasn't like this.

He did have a great time though, it was so cute watching him run around and play, and he's not at all shy around the other kids, he'd just go up to any of them and want them to play with him.

Meliassa - false negatives are more likely to happen than false positives. I would just wait a few days and try again if AF hasn't come. But nursing can make AF irregular.

My periods started back funny after my previous pregnancies. Have they been regular for you before this one? I've also had neg tests but really been pregnant - just had to wait a few more days. That's why dh makes me wait until AF is 2 weeks late
