I was under heaps of stress during our fertility treatments, because of the and my husbands impending kidney transplant. Infact by the time the transplant came I didn’t think I could be any more stressed!
After his transplant we took a break because we were both so exhausted, and we needed to focus on him getting better. We even booked a vacation to Ireland to mark his 6 months post transplant. Now I have gotten the advice to “take a vacation and forget about trying so hard” and I did want to punch those people at times, but this is when we actually got pregnant! On our own (well, with the use of progesterone only) during a time when we were simply being happy instead of stressed to the max.
I’m not saying the vacation did it, but I went from feeling stressed out and upset a lot of the time, to just accepting everything and letting go a lot of the upset feelings. We had also started exercising (road biking, a great de-stresser) and I think that helped me too, as I lost some of the weight from treatments.
Anyway, I guess I would say if you think a heap of funny movies will help you to laugh and de-stress do it! For me it was biking that de-stressed me, and the trip was just a one time really awesome thing to do together. I personally feel like the lack of stress in our lives gave us an edge in getting pregnant. Best of luck! :babydust: :babydust:
