6 months since last update... ops

As the title states it's been 6 months since I last updated this puppy. To be fair I keep having those "I really need to update my blog" moments, but never sat down to do it. It was only reading my cousin's blog that I decided to visit mine and proceed to fall off my chair when I realised how long it has been.

The last few month have been a bit crazy with the wedding etc, which by the way, went swimmingly. I then found out the day after the wedding that I was pregnant, and I was so relieved that I barely touched a drink on the wedding day. I had planned to drink a lot more the day before and the day itself but a upset stomach (I'm not convinced it was nerves because I wasn't nervous at all, though now may have been pregnancy) stopped me doing so. Maybe I'll write a blog post just about the wedding soon.

It was around this time that I got an idea for some crazy project... again. I bounced the idea off someone I've worked with before who loved the idea and then I went on the hunt. So far so good and all will be revealed.... at some point. There is a good reason not to spill the beans yet :) but it's going to be big.

So fast forward to present day and I'm sick... booo. For the last 5-6 weeks or so I haven't been feeling right, couldn't put my finger on it but I just put it down to pregnancy. I saw my midwife last week and told her, and she wasn't convinced what I was feeling was related to pregnancy so she booked me a GP appointment for the next day. I went to that appointment and the GP agreed with the midwife that he didn't think it was pregnancy related, he believes it's a cardiac issue. So I have an appointment tomorrow with the cardiologists.
I have been to A&E in the mean time as instructed by the GP if I got the palpitations and felt dizzy, but after it took a care assistant (note not a nurse) 20 minutes to get blood out of me, I was told 'you're not ill enough for A&E, we don't know why you are getting these symptoms, just go home and wait to see the specialists'. Lovely.
Oh and you want to see the aftermath on one arm from that care assistant? 3 attempts each arm by the way!:

So that's about where I'm at. Sat waiting for tomorrow to see the doctors. The slightest bit of activity kills my energy at present. I tried making an omelette a couple days ago, I had to sit down 4 times during making it because I felt breathless and dizzy. Highly annoying.

  1. Oh dear... I hope it is nothing too serious.
    That picture reminds me of how my arm looked after they took some blood from it last summer even though my veins are not really hidden. Lack of skills I guess.
