I’m almost halfway through my 2 Week Wait (2WW). I am currently in another country across the other side of the pond for a work trip. Despite the beautiful location in deep Bavaria and being kept busy with work all week, I am finding this a very different type of 2WW to any of the others. Being away from home and the 6 hour time difference has made it hard – on both of us I think – just to talk about things and how each of us is doing. A break from talking about Trying to Conceive, IUI and other baby making related stuff has been refreshing I will admit. BUT as I continue to have random pains, and thoughts of what is to be this time next week, I really miss Chris. Yes, of course, I miss him whenever I go away for work trips, but this time is harder. This time it is make or break.
With this being our third IUI, this time next week we will either be preparing to be proud parents (and not knowing if it is twins yet!!!) or preparing for a long journey on some other new path that we haven’t talked much about yet. Woah – scary stuff whatever happens.
As I am currently teaching 36 international students (mostly male, of varying age and backgrounds!) it is very difficult to hide any of the side effects I am having whilst I am ‘up on stage’ in front of everyone. Mostly trying to hide behind the lectern from the sharp pains I am experiencing!! Ordinarily after my day at work I would talk to Chris about these kinds of things. So I am talking to you all instead, sorry about that 😉
These pains suck, and I think that they may potentially be getting worse that I am going to have to ask the doctor about it next time. I really hope I don’t get what happened in my last cycle where I was doubled over in the supermarket, people watching and wondering if I was OK, debating whether I should go to an emergency doctor or not! I know that if anyone here sees me do that they would make a big fuss instantly, then I would have to explain it. Fingers crossed that cycle was just a one off.
Count down to make or break T-8 days……scary.
