dizzi - i think it's from the anxiety and all the nerves building up to your IUI. i had the same thing last month. i think the whole process is overwhelming at first, so when it's finally done its like, PHEW.. and it all hits you. ya know?
So ladies .... I asked the Dr I saw today about exercise just to see if I got the same answer. His response was "there is no scientific evidence that exercise will affect your chances, if there were then there would be a lot of people who don't get pregnant". While he did tell me to avoid hot tubs, sauna's and not to "run a marathon" he said I should be fine.
He did say that doctors will tell patients not to exercise so that they can't have anything to blame it on if they don't get pregnant. As I said to him "I did nothing last month and I didn't get pregnant so clearly doing nothing didn't help me!"
So while I won't go out and run hard and long I do think that after 4 or 5 days I will do a light jog so I can keep my sanity!!!
Hope you are all doing well! I have decided that this is going to be a loooooonnnnng 2ww. I am not wishing it away as I have got two weeks off work but really need something to take my mind of it now! We are going away this afternoon for a week but know I am not going to be able to think of anything else :$ Is anyone else struggling to stop obsessing?!
DH has gone off to Body Pump and Circuit training this morning I really wanted to go too but have stayed at home and done our packing instead. I know I will only get nagged at if I do any exercise by my mum and MIL so will sit and get fat instead :'( I am planning on going on a nice walk down the beach tomorrow though
Well as you know I had the IUI yesterday and ended up having a sleep in the afternoon to try to get rid of my terrible headache. It did feel much better when I woke so it probably as a result of the anxiety of this week. I have been having a bit of cramping and really struggled to sleep last night. I was wide awake at 3am and 4am.... is this usual? or is it me just thinking about it all. I am finding that I am aware of every little twinge and cramp.
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. Will try and get online on my mobile whilst I am away
