If you’re my patient, you may have heard me talk about the three words that I think may help you cope with the stress of fertility treatment. Here they are:
1. HOPE: Let yourself hope that you will get pregnant this cycle. It’s okay – let go and hope that you will and can get pregnant. Cheesie I know, but seriously……..keep the hope alive!
2. BELIEVE: Believe that you can and will get pregnant. Again, it’s okay to believe. Let go of the past and let yourself believe that this is the cycle that will work.
3. PERSEVERE: Regardless of what happens, remember this: YOU WILL PERSEVERE. No matter how much it hurts when you find out you are not pregnant, you will get through it. There is always tomorrow, another cycle, another plan and more hope. Surround yourself with the support system you need and the medical team that will hope and believe with you.
I hope this helps.
