Not Expected

i know that some of you saw my tweet/status yesterday...thanks for praying!! if not, i tweeted that i was not feeling that great after my procedure. yesterday i was dilated again. i am not sure if i was in more pain because they dilated me more this time or what, but i was pretty miserable yesterday. i would start sweating from the pain...not that it takes much to make me sweat! i really was not expecting to be in soooo much pain! it seemed like this procedure was a lot longer and more involved than the first time. dr. todd did warn me though...he said he was going to dilate me more than last time in preparation for the next step. today i am feeling better. the cramps are still intense, but less frequent! i know that this is all part of the process, so its all good! the next step is a follicle search (ultrasound looking for good eggs) and an hcg injection followed by an IUI. if there is a good follicle on the 17th then we will go back the 18th for the IUI. dr. todd also upped my dosage of serephene for this month. we are praying this is it! :)

on another note...we went to a really fun 4th of july party with some friends from church. i decided to make a few things to take with us, one of which was a red, white, and blue almond sour cream cake. i found the recipe on pinterest. i was surprised that it turned out so well. i cant wait to make it again! it would be a really cute ombre cake! if you decide to make it, there should be about 2 cups of batter per layer :) the taste was sooooo good and it starts with a cake mix!! below is the recipe for my favorite buttercream frosting. i use it for just about everything!! this week i am going to make my friend kristy this banana pudding poke cake! :)

this was my cake after a few slices...there wasnt any left after about 30 min!! 
white buttercream frosting:
1/2 c. shortening
1/2 c. butter softened
1 teas. clear vanilla (clear keeps it very white, but you can use regular)
4 c. powdered sugar (approx. 1 lb.)
2-4 tbls. milk (depends on how you like the consistency)


blessings, ALo
