What do kinds talk about on a playdate anyway? Toy and food stuff. So what do the mom’s discuss other than their kids. Playdates, if secretly observed and heart, would surprise many as to the topics that are approached. Kids give away family information and mom’s share parallel concerns with like-minded other parents. A great book of humor would be “Playdate Confessions.” You can just imagine what the pages would reveal. The parents would probably be mortified at what is often divulged. There should be rules about playdate conversations. While many subjects are taboo, trying to have another baby is not. After all, so many women go through this phase and need moral support from others. The minute the subject comes up, everyone joins in.

One of the rather private matters that is discussed in regard to having babies is a basal thermometer to track ovulation. Can you think of anything more private? No! However, it is on your mind and it gets spoken of. If you have used one, you might want to recommend it to someone else as the best way to proceed. I like the one with memory recall. There is the digital basal thermometer that allows a woman to determine her body temperature for basal body temperature (BBT) charting purposes. Designed specifically for fertility charting, this handy thermometer combines pinpoint accuracy with safety and ease of use.

good digital basal thermometer provides temperature readings to 1/100th of a degree Fahrenheit – perfect for fertility charting and predicting ovulation. Because consistency and accuracy are critical, the thermometer also offers helpful charting functions, such as digital memory recall and a peak temperature indicator. During the playdate I also mentioned the peak-temperature indicator sound, the digital memory recall function for the most recent reading, and large, easy-to-read digital display. You get a replaceable battery, a storage case, and ovulation charts. Charting is now automated. These thermometers are just phenomenal. Just imagine, a revolutionary, connected, digital basal thermometer that automates fertility charting! The device automatically syncs your temperature readings with the proven fertility app, OvaGraph, the official fertility charting app of Taking Charge of Your Fertility. You can easily take your basal temperature upon waking, and your data will be saved, charted, and interpreted automatically according to the Fertility Awareness Method. It’s the most complete BBT charting solution available – from taking your readings through to helping you interpret your chart. BBT charting with a basal thermometer it is so easy, it’s almost fun!

Since we were talking babies, I also started in on fertility supplements, ovulation prediction, and ovulation tests. We then got off onto ideal family size, how to decorate a nursery when you don’t know what you are having, and what to put on your baby shower wish list. There is no end to what you can cover with this vast and delightful subject. Men call it “women talk” and stay away from playdates in droves.
