    So do you think that supplementing about 5,000 IU of D3 on days that I don't get sun be sufficient? I'm in south Texas so the sun is still pretty strong here. I was out for 20 minutes yesterday. I was 88 degrees around noon and I have tan lines from just those 20 minutes...
    Have a look at my d document (click 'my google docs' in sig line)

    I don't think it's enough. Twenty minutes won't do it - full body exposure (bikini) on both sides to the point just before a burn occurs is just about the right amount. For me, that's 25 min each side at the beginning of the 'season' (Atlanta) and 45+ minutes each side as i get darker. That's at least an hour and a half midday sun once I'm tan.

    D deficiency - it's not worth risking your baby's brain:

    Cannel's Vitamin D Theory of Autism

    Vitamin D and the brain (developing and otherwise)

    Vitamin D and cognitive function

    Why not take 4,000 IU per day and have your ob or mw check your 25(OH)D at your next appointment - LabCorp only...Quest doesn't have an accurate test. Or the ZRT test (home fingerstick test) is available for $65 from or

    For $38, is offering their D test. They use labcorp:

    Yeah, listen to Cillakat, she is the guru around here for this. Also I read some study that claimed that D from sun exposure doesn't necessarily enter your body's circulation very well unless you're slim. Taking it as a supplement definitely won't hurt you or the baby. My OB has me taking 10K/day, sun or not.

    Glad the cold is gone! And still very impressed with your consistent-yet-varied exercise routine -- I'm just proud of myself whenever I can drag my butt to the pool.

    Thanks for the information ladies! I appreciate the advice.

    @Cillakat - I will definitely check out the articles and links you sent too.

    Good news!!! I avoided the fried sopapillas at dinner last night... I wanted to order them soooo bad but I resisted and had oranges for dessert instead. Yea me! (I didn't avoid the tortilla chips though... )

    I also started supplementing 5,000 IU of D3/day today... I have an appointment with my OB on Monday and will see if he will have their lab test my levels while I'm there.

    Work has been crazy busy too! I don't see this letting up anytime between now and when the baby is due either...

    I slept horribly last night! I woke up at 2am hungry and stressed thinking about work... After tossing around for an hour I finally got up to get something to eat. After eating I managed to pass out at 3:30am but then had to get up again at 4:30am for my workout! Ugh. I'm glad I worked out though. I'm feeling much better now... Hopefully, tonight will be better.

    I made an awesome flourless chocolate torte last night. I didn't sample it yesterday because I was full but I had a few bites today. It is delicious but I really can't eat more than a few bites at a time. It is SO filling. It's made with 10 oz of 72% bittersweet chocolate, 2 sticks of butter, 5 eggs, 1/4 cup strong coffee, 1/4 cup sugar, & vanilla. Best torte ever! And it's just sweet enough to satisfy my recent cravings for desserts...

    Another great night of sleep... 9 hours! I need to take advantage before the baby comes along...

    Also, I met a bunch of great farmers at the market yesterday. I'll be going back next weekend with a cooler so I can buy some bison and pork.
