"You like me...you really like me?"

So last night, I am chilling on the couch...surfin' the web. My phone starts ringing and it happens to be one of the ladies from Oakleaf Club (the group of Navy medical/chaplain/dental officer wives here at Camp Lejeune). She told me that she and two other ladies were the nominating committee and they wanted to know if I would like to be on the board for next year. There are a few different positions that are available and I get to decide what I would like to do. I am so very flattered to be asked. Of course my mind instantly sprang to the IVF and the possibility of being pregnant. I asked if being on the board would be hampered by being pregnant. She assured me that it would not be an issue and that we can always work around things.

So after thinking about it last night, I am going to make the call and let her know that yes I will take a board position! I am really looking forward to being more involved. This has been my goal and aspiration from the start....to be involved. I preach it to everyone I talk to...in order to meet new people, you have to put yourself out there. So here I go!

On the IVF front...I did my first big shot this morning. By myself...yep that's right...all by myself! I feel like such a grown up....this whole IVF thing may cure me of my needle phobia. Of course right now I feel nothing...didn't think I would....I am thinking it will be the end of next week before I really feel like an egg factory. My husband is being my biggest cheerleader and tells me how proud of me his is. Love this part of IVF! Since it is supposed to be nice this weekend...we are going to go do something. Not sure what yet but since I have to be at Womack on Monday morning and stay until ER, gotta make it fun! Of course nothing that makes my ponytail bounce!
And I had to include this picture from the other night. BJ has three of the four furbabies...practicing for triplets!

I am so proud of you I've got tears in my eyes and can barely type this. I am right there beside you always... even when I'm not actually in NC.
There is NOTHING you can't do! To think that when this is all behind you, I'll have new grandbaby(s) to love is amazing. Eye on the prize for sure.
