As the wedding is approaching and is now 1 month away and I am thinking that my stress levels are at an all-time HIGH, I have been doing lots of reading on infertility and treatments and stress is a top reason to either miscarry or not get pregnant. I was informed that 75% of women who participate in Yoga have a successful pregnancy with a healthy baby. I know that I want to to everything in my power to alleviate any stresses during this time not only for my upcoming IVF cycle, but for my overall health.
I have been doing research on pricing and locations to see which yoga experience would be the best and most convienient for me. I thought it was sweet of Pat to offer to go with me to yoga to be supportive! He is such a wonderful partner with everything. I sure am blessed to have him in my life. :) Maybe he can try yoga one of these days...who knows, maybe he would enjoy it...I have several options to look into! A majority of my research has come from "Pulling Down the Moon." http://www.pullingdownthemoon.com/ They take a hollistic approach to infertility. I feel it supplements the IVF treatment very well. They offer schedules online and work with you to make you feel like part of a family. Even though there are so many negative sides to infertility. I feel that infertilty has the LARGEST support group. No matter who you are in the infertility world, I feel it an immediate bond with others that is similar to a bond of a family. I love that I can talk openly about what is going on with others who are going through the exact same emotions, events, dr appointments, scares, and excitements as we are!
My goal is to start yoga this month! I can not wait! I have always wanted to try yoga, but now I feel it is essential for my health and for the conception of our first baby! :) If anybody has ANY advice on the yoga world, please share! I would love to hear more thoughts on this!
