Last September I was given this Build-A-Bear from one of my sweet little tutoring kids. Notice the cute little box it came in.

Fast forward to the box I received today. It's contents include what I like to think of as the ingredients to Build-A-Baby. However, it should be noted that this box did not come from the mall. And the price was considerably higher than $30. Oh, and it will take more than 30 minutes to build it. However, should it work properly, the clothes and accessories will be much cuter, and can, in fact, be found at the mall.

And because I'm in a picture taking mood, here's a look at all of the vitamins and supplements I take each day.

I also partake in weekly acupuncture and massage and listen to my meditations on my ipod daily. And I avoid caffeine, artificial sweeteners and alcohol. Though I'm rethinking that last one. I'm thinking of sipping a couple of glasses of wine a week. And I don't Google anything to scare me. Anymore.
Nobody can ever say that I didn't make a good effort, or give it my best shot. And oh my gosh, we are really doing this!


  1. Holy moly you are way more disciplined than me! It's a miracle if I remember to take my prenatal (which I love having the bottle in my house though, because everyone sees it but doesn't know if they should ask why I have them!) every day! I'm pretty good at taking my Metformin though, so I'm on the right track.

    Go ahead and have the wine! You deserve it!

  2. I love the analogy to Build A Bear! Very cute! Good luck!

  3. OMG what a huge box. Like a magic treasure chest! I will be right behind you, probably in the next two months. Nerve wracking but exciting!! Build that Baby!!

  4. Build-A-Baby - that's funny:-)

    And holy shite, I wonder if my box will be that big when I do it. I never knew!!!

  5. Wowee-wow!

    Well, girlie, you have inspired me to dust off the fertility yoga DVD and keep away from the cookies. Just looking at your stash made me realize how um...laissez-faire I have gotten with the approach to babymaking over time. I gotta step it up!

    I'm so proud of you. Your blog is well-named. :)

  6. I hope you have one of those pill organizers to keep track of what you have and haven't taken!

    I really hope everything goes well for you!

    Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
