A Christmas miracle? 

As I tap this little message out, my head is whirring, as it has been doing most of the night.

I’m back to work after a lovely Christmas break today – But that’s not the the reason sleep didn’t come easily last night.

As we we’re due to start our 3rd cycle of iui in the next few weeks after suffering a mmc a few months ago, we just wanted to get through christmas as best we could. I enjoyed a few drinks (5 on NYE!) which I hadn’t done since around July 2016, I totally relaxed my diet and ate brie. As someone who was once morbidly obese, I’ll probably always have these little blow outs now and again as my relationship with food is a complicated one! But, I digress…

Over the last few days I’ve been suffering with heartburn. Which is very unusual for me these days. I put this down to Christmas excess – as you read above, there was quite a lot of it! So have set about reigning my food choices back in and have started exerising properly again.

On Monday, I noticed that my jumper bumps were a little sore. (Nipples particularly) not unusual, I guess. Sometimes for a day or so in my cycle I get hurty boobs. 

My heart rate has felt a little unusual too… Sometimes,  slightly elevated, other times more pronounced somehow (like I can really feel it booming?)

And finally last night, I was peeing at least once an hour.

As someone who’s endured many more fruitless 2 week waits than I care to remember, and spotted every “symptom” that wasn’t really there in the book – I’m willing myself not to believe there’s a chance that we’ve conceived naturally.

But this is pretty much exactly what happened after our second (successful) cycle of iui, when we got our first and only positive pregnancy result.

Realistically, we can’t test and hope to get an accurate answer until the weekend. So in the meantime, I guess I’ll knuckle down at work, not think about this (haha!) And hope to progress to feeling slight waves of nausea 😉
