Anywho, I had some 23 year-old (maybe, I dunno, probably closer to 27) do the procedure. I liked her. She complimented me on my shoes. One can never go wrong praising footwear. We were in and out in less than an hour. We then enjoyed a nice lunch at a local restaurant that I am now forever in love with, No Frill Bar and Grill. The service was excellent, Lily was well behaved, and the Salmon club was To.Die.For. Some night when Cayce and I have a sitter we will need to return and enjoy it on an adult level. After lunch we went home. Lily went down for her nap and I continued my quest for a ball gown.
Thankfully, I have had the never-ending shopping extravaganza for the Gator Ball to keep me busy. On March 1 we are attending the Gator Ball here in Portsmouth. It is for all the Khaki sailors (E7 and above and Officers) of Expeditionary Strike Group 2. If you look at that list, that is a WHOLE lot of ships and sailors. This is a formal event, and I'm a wee bit excited. Cayce's dress uniform includes a bow tie! That's a wee bit hilarious to me. I get to wear a gown. The last time I wore a formal gown was for my Senior Prom.

I'm just glad I've had this project to keep me busy. Last cycle I was a nervous wreck. This cycle, I can't lie and say I haven't been thinking about it, but at least I'm not insane about it. I have been taking pregnancy tests daily, but that is to test out the HCG trigger shot I received to ovulate. I *think* it's finally out. This cycle and last cycle both marked the HCG out of my system 8 days after the shot. Hopefully that doesn't foreshadow the end results of this cycle. Blah. Like I said I am thinking about it a lot. I had a friend direct me to an online support group for women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome called SoulCysters. They have a subsection all about infertility and trying to conceive... I'm on there daily lurking, looking for advice, trying to see myself in their results, and in general educating myself. But on the shallow side I've thought about a due date (Nov 2), names (Rocco, Luca, or Daisy), how to tell Cayce if I finally get a "pregnant" pregnancy test (That's a surprise), where the baby would sleep for the first few months of his/her life (in our room, obvi, but WHERE in our room), etc. So yeah, here I am again letting myself run away with the excitement of what could be. Clearly I did not learn my lesson last cycle. The day of the trigger I let my imagination run wild. I explained to Cayce, at that moment I was not NOT pregnant so it was safe to dream and fantasize about this magic little being who could soon be a part of our wonderful family. *sigh* Anywho, we're on the back end of this cycle, and soon I can stop fretting one way or another. Hopefully I'll soon have good news to report!
