Warning! Warning! Warning! 

I have completed Day 3 of my stimulation calendar. I go tomorrow for blood work, then back again Wednesday. I'm not sure when from there. However; I am noticing some changes in already. I'm not complaining, just sharing so you can laugh along with me, because I'm definitely laughing at myself these days. 

Here's a list (I love lists!):

1. I am sensitive. 

2. My definition of sensitive: I cry over anything, get emotional over anything, and may get angry just over spilling milk. 

3. I am HOT! 
The it's 52 degrees outside and I'm wearing capris, flip flops, and a sleeveless shirt to church type of hot. Oh! And I'm running the A.C. 

4. I am more alert. (I'm sure this has to do with the steroid.)

5. My appetite has grown over night (Again, I blame the steroid).
 Let me explain... I ordered a bowl of steamed broccoli and a Triple Decker Club from O'Charley's Saturday... 

I smile at this list, because I know it will bring a blessing. I just feel so blessed to have the opportunity to go through this procedure. I know God is going to bless Lance and I; and I can't wait to see how He's going to do it. I give all praise to Him for making this possible.

Made for Me

I love, love the new Toby Mac c.d., and I love, love his song "Made for Me". Here is my favorite line/stanza.....

But something tells me we’re gonna be OK  
‘Cause she was made for me You gave ‘er to me 
I said I’d hold on loose but I so wanna squeeze you 
Just right for me and for the life of me 
I can’t believe I get to call her mine
  And she was made for me Made for me
  And she was made for me Made for me

As you all know (who journey along with me) Lance and I have taken the road towards IVF. Well, we are getting close to so many new exciting things, which I don't want to share right now. But, there is one thing I want to share. God made Lance for me and me for him. We knew this from the first time, or first few times we met. We continue to learn more about how we were made for each other as we grow as a couple with each other and with God. 

This "trying to have a baby" experience over the past 3.5 years has been an emotional roller-coaster as anyone can imagine or knows from experience. We are at a peak right now with everything good going on. What's most amazing is that it's all in God's timing and I'm glad it's working out that way. 

The scripture came to my heart this morning from Psalm 139: 13-14:

For it was You who
created my inward
You knit me together in my mother's womb. 
I will praise You
because I have been 
remarkably and 
wonderfully made.

Like I said God continues to show us that we were made for one another. Let me just say, without sharing too much information at this time, that I am now 100% sure God made Lance and I for each other. 
29 years ago before Lance was even "knit in [his] mother's womb" and 27 years ago before I was "knit in my mother's womb", God knew. He knew that Lance and I would fall in love. He knew we would have to take this road towards having a family. He knew that we would need each other. He made us for each other before we were "knit in [our mothers'] wombs." 
He is an amazing God and I am glad He is the author of our life together. Looking forward to BIG things in the near future!
