New Year's Resolutions for Women with Infertility

Breathe. You've done it. You've gotten through all of the major family holiday celebrations despite the fact that you were dealing with the emotional ups and downs that infertility can cause at this time of year. You survived. Now it's time to look forward to the year ahead and see what you would like to have happen. Of course, what you want to have happen is that you'll get pregnant and have a baby at this time next year. But there are probably also some other things that you want for your life. You want to be more relaxed about the process. You want to get more information about a certain procedure. You want to find a doctor that you actually like working with. The end of the year is about getting through what's left and reflecting on what it meant to you. But the end of the year is almost over. We're about to enter the beginning of a new year and that's all about setting some goals and envisioning some dreams. Here are a few New Year's Resolutions that women with infertility might be making this year: - Taking more time to just relax and focus on your own health. - Learning more about all of the options out there including in vitro fertilization, surrogacy and adoption. - Starting a journal about the process. After all, someday you're going to have a baby and you'll want him or her to know how much work you wanted to go through to get to that bundle of joy. - Networking with other women who are dealing with infertility. - Letting people (like your boss) know that you're on fertility treatments. - Having more intimate moments with your partner that are about the intimacy and not about conception. - Being less hard on yourself about the circumstances. There are many different things that you can do for yourself in 2008. Make a few resolutions that will make the year go more smoothly for you. After all, a happy mom is a good mom.
