They left their checkup appointment with Dr. Wilson quiet, thoughtful. It was one more step towards… more waiting. Tina was normally the patient one, the one who cautioned a slower approach. Wait and see she was always telling Bette. Wait and see. Well, shit. With the Cyro Bank in place it seemed likely that conception was just a matter of finding a guy willing to donate. Dr. Wilson was hopeful and encouraging but the appointment was more clinical than Tina cared for. Wait and see my ass she thought.
In the elevator, Bette reached for Tina’s hand, smiling softly at her, squeezing her hand gently. “You ok?”
“No. No. I am not ok. I am not even in the same vicinity as ok.”
“What can I do? Need lunch? A massage? A new plant? Take the day off, maybe… we could… you know…”
“Bette!” She chuckled as Bette leaned in to whisper in her ear exactly what Tina’s options were.
Tina squirmed, enjoying Bette distracting her, shaking her head at Bette’s ability to turn any event into an opportunity for sex.
They separated briefly as another couple entered the elevator. She was clearly pregnant, he clearly bored, checking his watch repeatedly. They did not speak. Bette winked at Tina behind the couple, her hand warm in Tina’s, her eyes dark and playful. She raised her eyebrows suggestively. When the doors opened, the couple got out and Bette waited until the doors closed again.
“Talk to me, Tee. Dr. Wilson…”
“We can’t pregnant if I’m not home, Bette. My upcoming traveling schedule is brutal. And I don’t agree with Dr. Wilson, I think we would be better doing the insemination at home. Just us. I don’t want to do it here.”
“It’s our decision, Tee. She said it was our decision…”
“With caveats. She basically said here was better. Better chances if we do it clinically, better odds of implantation. Better long term success. Less risk of complications…”
Bette waited for a moment then pulled Tina gently towards her.
“You want to do it at home. So, we will do it at home. Done. We will follow all the directions to the letter. I was born to follow directions, Baby. I like to follow directions. We will buy all the equipment. No matter how many times it takes, Honey. We will conceive our baby at home.”
