Baby Makin' Latest

Sooo... I got the 6 vials of blood, bloodwork done on August 5th. Yep, you are right, it has almost been a month. Where did the time go?
Dr. B's sweet nurse (being sarcastic) is to thank for that. I called, and called and called and called to get my results, and when finally someone was able to locate me in system, she tells me "Oh my, you are going to need to speak with a nurse".. I freaked out, naturally.
Once sweet nurse finally returns my call, she tells me she can't release my information until the doctor reviews it.
Fast forward another week, to last Thursday, when she finally calls me back to tell me that Dr. B would really just like to meet with me to discuss my results, and helped me make an appointment for this coming up Thursday. Which is right at 4 weeks.
Wow. I hope they don't work this way if I get pregnant and want to have blood work done to verify, or gosh knows what else may come our way, test-wise.
So needless to say, the ovary scraping, throbbing, and numbing pain I have been experienceing, and all the baby dancing goin' on, will probably be interrupted by stress from, "Oh my, you are going to need to speak with a nurse."

Hopes,dreams and plans for the next 365 days (Day 29 on actual Day 31.. lol)

Hopes: That me and my fellow friends that have been trying so hard and so long will get pregnant. I cannot imagine what reaction I would have to see a positive pregnancy test, after seeing 5 bajillion negative ones. I really have no clue what I would do, besides carry it in my purse with me. (Add to day 28, what's in my handbag)

Dreams: Very vivid dreams.. in color maybe? Pregnancy dreams!

Plans: Planning baby showers for named fellow friends, and planning on how I am going to turn this office into the most adorable nursery ever.

Alright now, better stop before I jinx something.

My Worst Habit (Day 27)

My worse habit is biting my nails. I hate it, my hands are ugly, and I wish I could stop ); When I was little my Gran used to put this stuff on my fingers that made it taste super bitter whenever I would bite them but I kept doing it and still do it to this day. Gross.

My Week in Great Detail (Day 26)

Where I live (Day 24)

I live in Humble, Texas. I moved out here from Fannett, Texas in 2000 when I was a young eager 21 year old and I met my sweetheart the following year in 2001. Humble is north of Houston and west of Beaumont and isn't really known for anything, but there are some wonderful mom and pop resturants that people drive all over to go to like Humble City Cafe, Humble Inn, Los Vega, and Italiano's. YUM!

A Youtube Video (Day 23)

This was the song of the weekend whenever we went to New Braunsfels. We sang it at least 32 times. Not your typical river song, like David Allen Coe or Johnny Cash, but we sang the mess out of it. I am posting it because I love these kids from Glee and this makes my heart swoon.

A Website (Day 22)

I love to read blogs.. so here is one of my favorites that I recommend!

Aimee's blog @ The Hicks Tree...

Aimee and I went to high school together and I love her dearly. We have always kept in touch through the years and she is a great friend and is going to be one heck of a momma one day.

Isn't she beautiful!

A Recipe (Day 21)

Chicken & Dumplin's (Mine and Matt's favorite)
2-3 boneless chicken breast
2 qts of chicken broth
1 stick of butter
3 cups of self rising flour
1 cup of milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
salt & pepper to taste

Place chicken & butter in large pot. Add chicken broth. Boil until chicken is done.

Dumplings: Place flour in in large bowl and make a well in center. Add milk and vegetable oil. Stir to make a firm dough. Knead a few times until dough is no longer sticky. Add more flour if neccessary.

Roll out dough on floured surface and cut into strips. Drop dough into broth. Stir frequently. Water may be added to make a larger quantity without diluting flavor. Add salt and pepper to taste. cook 10-15 min's on low

A Hobby of Mine (Day 20)

Sorry I have been MIA.. I have been at floating in a tube down the Guadalupe River.. TONS OF FUN! I am home now and ready to get back on track.. so I owe you three blogs... HERE GOES!
My hobby is... I love everything shopping.. from malls, to outlet malls, to grocery stores to Trade Days to Flea Markets.. I am there. I don't *have* to buy anything, as I am happy window shopping and looking around. I just think it's to fun to look for different things, new things I haven't seen..

My Wedding (Day 18)

My Wedding was March 27, 2004. Matt and I had been engaged for a year, and dated for a total of 3 years prior to this day. It was a totally perfect day!

An Art Piece (Day 17)

Once upon a time (a few months ago really) Matt and I went to Hobby Lobby for scrap booking stuff for our Vegas trip. We got a little sidetracked (totally normal) and bought canvases and paints because we were going to each make a painting. It was a Saturday, we had zero plans, and we were right in the middle of watching a Season of the Office, so how perfect would that be? I threw down some old sheets in front of the TV , we got some ideas of what we were going to do.. and looky what my husband did.
Pretty Amazing!! He was looking at a picture in Slam Magazine, and together with his love of the game, this is what he came up with. My lil' Picasso.

A Song that Makes me Cry (Day 16)

My Dream Home (Day 15)

How do you like my lazy river that goes all the way around my mansion? Haha.. I am not sure if is really a lazy river but my dream home would surely have that.. complete with a hair salon, pedicure room, a huge room for my dogs, and a fabulous movie theater.

A Non- Fiction Book (Day 14)

This is a great read if you haven't read it. Even if you are not a huge Paula Deen, or Food Network Fan it's really interesting and gives descriptive details about her life. I read it twice.. in a row and have let lots of friends borrow it, and even my dad loved it.

Have a great weekend!

Something you are OCD about (Day 12)

So here it is, and now it's time for you to know what a freak I am. I hate milk, the taste, the smell, the look of it. I really really hate it whenever it is in a clear glass and you can see it running down the side or if someone is drinking it and it is on their face. I really cannot even be in the same room if I see it. Blech. Weird? Yeah, I thought so.

A recent photo of you (Day 11)

Recent picture of me.. in LAS VEGAS! And my sweet husband of course. My sister in law took this, and we saw it posted on facebook later.. and the way the flash is in the picture with our already pale complexions- Matt said we look like angels (:

A photo taken of you more than 10 years ago (Day 10)

This was definetely more than 10 years ago, in 1997 to be exact, right after I graduated high school at our Operation Graduation. That is me on the far right of course!

A Photo you took (Day 9)

This is Murray and he has my heart. I look forward all day to when I come home and he yells at the top of his lungs and makes pig noises, so excited for me to come home. And if I forget something in the car, he screams at the front door until I come back in. He follows me- always on my heel, and I have to pretend like I am going outside in the backyard for him to go out there so that he will use the bathroom. I love it when he tilts his head like in the picture. I love my dogs (:

A Photo that Makes you Happy (Day 7)

Dr. B*

I am posting a blog other than the "all about me in 30 days"! I went to my first appt. today with Dr. B and let me just tell you that I freaking love her. She was AMAZING!! A breath of fresh air if you will. She spent a good hour with me, looking over my history from the Fertility Institute, talking to me about options, success stories- which I love to hear, and she even took care of my yearly while I was there...
First off, we talked about my thyroid, because she noticed I was on Synthroid and Cytomel, and by the time we were done talking she was convinced that was the problem, and I "probably wouldn't even need her help getting pregnant". Exact words.
I told her that with the Synthroid, I had my period 3 times already, once each month since I have started taking it, and that was probably the first time in years I had it on my own without the help of provera. She was very concerned that the Fertility Institute did not test for my thyroid, because she said she had worked with them many times in the past and thinks that should have been the first thing they tested for. She thought maybe I overlooked the test, so we got online to FI's portal and I showed her all the bloodwork I had done, and sure enough, no thyroid panel. She even brought it up to another doctor who was waiting on another patient, because that doctor had done training at FI.. she could not believe it either. Lucky me, what a waste of time, and money I guess. I told her I had to stop going there because of the cost, and she assured me she could do all the same things, and wanted to start quickly back on clomid. I am fasting tomorrow morning (nothing after midnight after all.. I have Jason's Deli on the way right now to hold me over until tomorrow after the test) and doing bloodwork with her-both a full PCOS panel, and a cholesterol test also so that she can determine if I need to get started on any other type of medications that might complicate a pregnancy. Love her. Already thinking out of the box. I am just so happy with the way things went.

Favorite Quote (Day 5)

I am not one that reads quotes, or even remembers them, so I chose my favorite movie quote.

My Favorite Book (Day 4)

Ok, so I have read this book about 12 times since I was in high school. There are 4 more that complete the "Landry Series" of this VC Andrews book. It's about a girl who grows up in the bayou with her grandmother and grandfather (who is a drunk). Her mother died when she gave birth to her at a young age and she was raised by them, and later finds out her father is a rich creole living in New Orleans. She ventures out to find him and learns that she has a twin sister, who was raised totally different than she was. I highly recommend it!

What's your favorite book?

Can't wait until tomorrow (: This is fun!

My Favorite Song (Day 1)

I have a few... so here goes..

"What's Going on".. 4 Non-Blondes

"Din Da Da" ... George Kranz (Yeah, don't even ask. I spent 15 years of my life trying to find the name of this song, that I heard in 8th grade. I finally found it last year thanks to my stepdad who knew exactly what song I was talking about. I spent all that time singing it to the guys at Camelot, FYE, and every other music store and they had no idea what I was singing. Anyways, I LOVE IT!

And although there are more, this one reminds me of my sweet husband. I love him so much, and thank God everyday for bringing him into my life. He is my everything. He makes me laugh when I am in the worst of moods, and I know we are in this together. I love you Matt.
