Blogging ABCs and Update

I have a tendency toward procrastination. It’s this evil little part of me that I desperately try to fight, but it always sneaks its way into parts of my life when I’m not paying attention. Even the Blogging ABCs that I saw a few people post on the other week (it is bad that I’m feeling to lazy to post the links?). I meant to do one too, right then, when it was relevant. But—I procrastinated. So, here’s that:

A- Age: 33 

B- Biggest fear: Airplane crash

C- Current Time: 1:42 p.m., lunch hour

D- Drink you last had: Raw Meal–vegan chai goodness in a smoothie!

E- Easiest Person to Talk To: DH. Most of the time. Second person is Dee, my therapist.

F- Favorite song:  Hmm. I cannot pick.

G- Grossest Memory: Driving my dad’s severed finger to the hospital after he accidentally cut it off while doing yard work. Truly traumatizing.

H- Hometown: Philadelphia, PA

J- Jealous Of: No one really. We all got our problems.

K- Killed Someone: Seriously? No.

L- Longest Relationship: 14 years with my wonderful, sweet husband.

M- Middle Name: Anonymous. Like my blog here. Sorry.

N- Number of Siblings: 3. Well technically, 2.5 🙂

O- One Wish: See all other blog entries.

P- Person who you last called: The pharmacist about my stim order.

Q- Question you’re always asked: “Is your hair naturally curly?” Well of COURSE it is! Why would I do this to myself on purpose?! (I have majorly, stupidly, wildly curly hair).

R- Reason to live: Jesus.

S- Song you last sang: Knights in White Satin in the car last night. With the windows rolled up of course.

T- Time you woke up: 5:45. Had to get to the clinic by 7:45 for blood work. Normally, I’m a 6:30/7:00 kinda gal.

U- Underwear Color: (checks) pink and white leopard print.

V- Vacation Destination: upcoming: Lancaster, PA

W- Worst Habit: I used to smoke, so I guess that.

X- Xrays you’ve had: Chest, dental, I think that’s it.

Y- Your favorite food: Fruit. All fruit. I seriously love it.

Z- Zodiac Sign: Aries

Okay, fun stuff aside, update time: Currently on CD 11. Had blood work this morning. No OV yet, but that’s probably coming soon, esp since I’ve somehow lately switched to a 25 day cycle. I also had them retest my thyroid since I suspect it’s still not down where it needs to be. Last month it was at 2.6, but I’d like to see it down in the 1’s. Next week I begin estrogen priming protocol (EPP) with Estrace. I finally got all my meds ordered, they’ll be here next week as well. I do EPP for 7 – 12 days until my next period is due, then begin stims. Honestly, I just can’t think that far ahead. I have to take this all one day at a time or I start to get overwhelmed.

Happy Wednesday all!
