This time of year drives me quite batty with the constant litany of Christmas songs (enough Mariah!) and driving in circles looking for a parking spot somewhere in this hemisphere.
It's a stressful time for many people what with presents, holiday parties, travel, etc.
In a way, it's good that fertility clinics close for the holidays. That means IVFs and IUIs can wait until the new year.
It's nice to have an enforced break from thinking about fertility, no?
Wait for the New Year when you're recharged and ready to go.
What it comes down to is that you've created an environment where you already know that the holiday season won't result in you getting pregnant. Your priority is elsewhere. No fertility treatments. Get a little lax with your eating habits. No pressure.
2018 rolls around. You're back on your fertility journey.
Just as you create an environment (although not consciously) where your chances of getting pregnant are reduced, on the flip side, you can also intentionally create an environment where your chances of getting pregnant are increased.
So what's the environment you'll create where getting pregnant is almost inevitable?
Here's one way to put some of the pieces together...
The holidays is a wonderful time to evaluate what makes you happy.
Who are the people that you enjoy spending time? Make a note to spend more time in 2018 with them.
Who is an energy vampire? Minimize your exposure to them.
What activity did you love doing? Schedule time to do it on a regular basis in 2018. Maybe weekly or monthly.
We are a product of our environment. Pay attention in the next few weeks to tailor yours so that you can improve your chances of getting pregnant in 2018.
