What was the advice?
I am currently using IUI to try and get pregnant. We have done 6 cycles and have been trying for 8months with fertility help and a year and 1/2 total time so needless to say this has been difficult. The worst advice I think I have gotten is "All you have to do is go and get drunk and you'll get pregant for sure!"
How did you handle the situation?
I took a deep breath and said I wish it was that easy for us. It's not that simple.
I have been listening to a guided imagery on fertility and I listen to affirmations on a daily basis. So when people make these comments I remember to take a few calming breaths and I repeat a few of the affirmations to myself that have really stuck with me.
Tips and Tricks
- I remind myself that if someone has never been through fertility issues or has never known someone really close to them who has gone through it, that they can not understand and have no clue what's happening with you.
- Just take a few deep breaths and figure out a way to stay mentally balanced and focused (my favorites are yoga and guided imagary) you need to find some way to de-stress.
