Just relax and it will happen. There isn’t an infertile in the world who doesn’t bristle at that horrible, misinformed piece of advice. It’s a ridiculous, tired, old cliche.
I have nothing against relaxing. I enjoy relaxing just as much as anyone. I believe that relaxation is good for one’s health, but I don’t believe that it has magical powers that will increase anyone’s chances of getting pregnant. Nor do I believe that stress will prevent a woman from getting pregnant.
Nevertheless, for the past few weeks, I’ve been relaxing like it’s my job.
But, Kitten, making relaxation a job kind of defeats the purpose, don’t you think?
Probably, but that doesn’t make my weekly massages, daily mediation, and frequent glasses of wine any less enjoyable.
