Hair or Heart?

I'd like to get a haircut. Maybe a highlight or two......
I have a fabulous hairdresser. She's funky, talented, well priced, attentive & she can make me look hot.
No wonder I'm a loyal client. I want to ring and make a booking... but there's a small dilema.
She got married just before Christmas to a very, very handsome dude. They are a knockout couple. Actually quite perfect. At my last appointment she told me that they were going to try for a baby straight away. She's 29, so I appreciate her decision. I was excited & hopeful for her. I can't bring myself to call her....because I just know she's pregnant!
Until this IVF cycle is done I won't torture myself unnecessarily. I know I'll conduct myself appropriately after the 2ww has passed. Whichever way. Fabulous hairdo be damned.

Meanwhile......back in the lab our embryo's are dividing & growing. I am in complete shock that my body parts are finally conforming! After years of loathing my defective, mutant innards I am suddenly enraptured at my (and Peter's) productiveness!
Saturday afternoon I was busy loafing around when I heard my mobile phone ringing. As per usual I was unable to locate it and missed the call. Grrr.
I detest mobile phones.
Moments later I heard the home phone ringing. As per usual the handset was not on the cradle. I also detest cordless phones! Grrr! Grrr!
I began a frantic, blasphemous search....finally locating the phone in my Dressing Gown pocket (who put it in there?) and answered in an annoyed exasperated growl:
"YES... Y-ES..... HELLO ??!"
It was the clinic with an unexpected update on our embryo's.
I dropped the snarky tone pronto. "Ohhh !! Hello!" I purred sweetly.

[INSERT VOICE IN HEAD]
....Why did I answer with so much attitude? What if they think I'm a hideous, mean gargoyle and purposely neglect my embryo's!!?

...The caller's upbeat voice restored my senses. She gaily informed me that we had four 8 celled and one 7 celled embryo and everything looks good for transfer tomorrow.
I like her.
....In less than 24 hours I will have an "Embryo on Board".
Somebody pinch me. Awww! Owwww!! Not there!

Yay for 5 fabulous embryos!! Good luck! Btw, I'm also incapable of answering either my cell or the landline bc I can never find either phone. My husband LOVES this.

Wow, how exciting. It has to be great to get to the transfer stage with 5 great embryo's.
My hairdresser is TTC too, she has 2 babies so I am sure the 3rd is on the way. I am not looking forward to a belly in my face during shampoo's. As soon as you get that BFP, book the appointment!
