I don't know either, Teri.  We'll just have to wait on Dr. D to tell us what to do.  But I'm not leaving Elizabeth on the AB nonnie diet.  She did much better than before, but it still wasn't quite right.  I'm willing to experiment and see what works best.  So far the Explorer diet is fitting her nicely.

Leanne, I realize how frustrating it can be.  Have you tried reading through the descriptions and combining that with the food sensitivities you know they already have and see what your best GT guess could be?

When we all got colds a couple of weeks ago I was so proud of their immune systems.  Elizabeth only had a stuffy nose for 2 days, Ethan's nose ran for 1 day, and Julia was sniffly for only a few hours.  How's that for a cold?  Isn't that fantastic?

Quoted from teri
For finger lengths, it is the ratio that's important, not the actual length, so I assumed that the growth rate would be consistent on all fingers. Maybe not a good assumption.
Maybe my assumption's ok after all. I decided to look it up and found this...

Quoted Text
"Digit length is fixed in utero and relative digit lengths remains constant through development and is constant across ethnicities"

from this Dr.'s website ... Dr. Mark Brosnan
Interesting, but I guess it still doesn't mean a child's GT can be accurately determined, unless maybe they are both non-secretor and rh- (like me), then maybe only the finger lengths are needed to point to the right GT. At least that's how it was for me when I played around with the finger lengths on the GT calculator. Other body measurements didn't make a difference. Maybe this ony happens to Explorers.

Dr. Brosnan also says this...

Quoted Text
"Digit ratio is significantly different between those with children and those without children"

Interesting too, but what does it mean? Is it pre-determined that someone will not likely have children? Or is it that someone within a specified digit ratio range will more often choose not to? hmmm. In my case, I've had two miscarriages and no children. So, I physchologically made the choice to have children but physiologically it wasn't meant to be. Guess I am not one of the "significantly different", at least as far as this study goes.

teri,
as you, I had mentioned something along those lines on page 1

Wow!  Is there a particular genotype that has fertility issues?  I know Dr. D says Warriors may have trouble later on.  What about the others.  Maybe that's part of the answer to finger lengths and infertility.

I didn't measure DD's fingers, but just looking at them one hand looks pretty  much even and on the other hand her ring finger is a good bit longer.

Leanne: Maybe you can allow your 5-yr. old an occasioanl sliver of beef. It may keep her satisfied so she won't binge when she's an adult. Ostrich is extremely expensive, but maybe you can get some just for her. If you season it, it tastes close enough to beef to maybe take care of that craving.
If you mix beef with rice or something else, will that satisfy her to get a little taste, or is she like me, a gourmand & needs a lot to feel satisfied?

Also, didn't Dr. D say that to wait till age 12 or so to do GTD. Remember, that we all have individual 'allergies' or intolerances. It's hard to figure it all out.
BTW, how's the baby?  I nursed such a long time, was exhausted & sleep deprived, but I know I did the right thing. It's the only time a human can have close to the perfect diet!
