Busiest Day of the Summer

So, I had a pretty busy day. Not productive - but busy...kinda. Here's the rundown - bullet style.
  • I had my appointment at the "Center of Reproductive Medicine" bright and early.
    • I show up EARLY (miracle)
    • I have a consult with the doctor. She outlines the first few steps of this process:
      • Super fun examinations (and a ultra sound - and not the kind you see on TV, if ya get my drift)
        • 1st thing she says...(seriously, do they teach these doctors to carry on a conversation when you are in the stirrups??) "Wow, your uterus is beautiful!"
        • Next she says, "Hey you are about to ovulate!! Looks like you have homework tonight!"
        • Then, "You have three cysts on your ovary. I want to check these out again in a few weeks."
        • THEN...when it was all over I almost fell off the stupid table and landed with all my weight on my pinky toe - graceful as an elephant.
      • A couple of "cultures" for bacteria
      • Set up appointment for Chris's analysis (Next Monday, the 11th)
      • Set up appointment for my bloodwork (Also next Monday)
      • Set up appointment for bloodwork/analysis followup and another ultrasound (joy)
      • A possible HSG to check out my remaining left tube.
        • Been there, done that - don't really want to go through it again.
        • BUT, they do give Valium ;)
        • I really don't want to have to go all the way to Houston for the procedure...
      • All-in-all, I feel pretty good about the appointment - I mean, I found out for sure that I do ovulate from my remaining ovary, so tonight's "homework" felt like it had a purpose. And believe me, we were trying for an 'A'
        • We have more homework for the next two nights...;)
  • After the appointment, I took my first trip to Barnes & Noble!! (I live in the sticks and don't get out much!!)
    • I'm in LOVE. I forgot how much I love the smell of new books.
    • I bought two hardback on clearance for $6 a piece (1 Stephen King and the last book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.)
    • I finally broke down and spent the money on Photoshop for Dummies.
      • Chris bought me the program for Valentine's Day and I haven't touched it because it is overwhelming!!
  • That's where the "busy" ends!! I came home, took a nap, woke up made coffee and spent the evening with my hunny, relaxing.
    • Which means I have some makeup to do tomorrow in the exercise department!!!!
I've rambled enough for one day...time to hit the sack!!!


  1. I'm going to see a new ob/gyn on Monday. I am not looking forward to all of that fun. I just hope this lady wants to run tests, even with my history my old ob/gyn wants me to try for a year when we don't even know if I'm ovulating or if my progesterone levels are right. UGH! I just want to know, you know? LOL.

  2. I go to the OB next week!! Fun Fun!

  3. All of those tests are no fun, but the end result will be totally worth it!

  4. I bet that's a fun assignment! LOL Woo woo!

  5. Congratulations on your beauitful uterus! I hope all the tets turn out well and enjoy the homework. There are definitely worse assignments to have!

  6. I love going to the book store. It's my favorite type of retail shop.

  7. I'm so happy that things went well. Now that is one homework assignment I would not complain about! Study hard!!!

  8. sounds like you are right on track with exercise to me ;)

  9. I love books too ! Cheapness leads me to the library more than book stores but it's all good !
