Why am I not pregnant yet? Even though everything is fine with me and my partner.
In my practice, I see a lot of women for conception issues. Most of the time both husband and wife are healthy. Both of them often have been tested and the results come back normal. So how come they are not getting pregnant? Some of my patients get sad and cry every month when their period comes, some get depressed or angry.
"Why do other women get pregnant and not me?"
Some get insomnia from over thinking and some get so tensed up, their shoulders look like they're attached to their ears.
It is not easy having to count days, or take basal daily temperature or look at the vaginal discharge just to know if ovulation is occurring. And the stress of telling the future father that it's time to perform now! This process is supposed to be fun but end up being more stressful than a root canal. Often stress is the cause!
Here is a true story that I often tell my patients
When I was younger in my small village in France, one of my school teacher and his wife tried to have a baby for 5 years (small town, everyone knows everything). They got tested and nothing was wrong with them so they kept trying but after another 2 years, they decided that adoption was a good choice for them. It took another 4 years before they receive the news of a new baby girl who was going to fill their life with joy. 1 month after the news: they got pregnant! They have now 2 beautiful daughters who are just 3 months apart in age. So suddenly when the stress of conceiving was out of their lives and a baby was finally going to be part of their family, both their bodies relaxed and "poof" they conceived without even trying.
It will happen for you also, just relax, eat well, sleep enough, and just breathe deeply. Think positive thoughts and be happy; act like you are already pregnant: GLOW! Enjoy life because soon you'll be doing 2 am feeding and changing diapers all day long :))
Try acupuncture: it really does work very well for fertility and stress.
