We finally cleared all of the hurdles that the HMO put us through, and tried for baby number 2 on Valentine’s Day. I had to miss Property to be there with Jen. It was exciting and went really smoothly. The nurse there was really chummy and chatted the whole way through. When she was done, Jen asked if there was anything she should do for the rest of the day. The nurse replied that Jen should have me take her out to lunch. After all, what had I done? Jen answered that I had carried our first child.
The nurse then says, “That’s nice, you guys trade off like that.” But then she turns to me suddenly and asks, “Or did YOU get too OLD?”
Ha Ha. Oh lady, you are so not my friend.
She then recommended the restaurant next door. She swears it’s nice. It was called the Longhorn. Why I couldn’t see what a restaurant named the Longhorn would be like is beyond me. Its all steaks and beef, but on the wall are heads of cattle. Like I want to see my meat as I eat it? Why don’t they just reenact butchering the cow?
That was strike number 2 for the nurse. At any rate, we are officially in the 2 week wait. I will let you know what happens!
