You and your partner are trying to conceive for a few months now. Last month, your friend broke the news that they're expecting a baby and this month, another friend is having a baby shower. It seems like everybody's getting pregnant except you. What should you do?
Trying to conceive can sometimes be very stressful and depressing to some women, especially when they feel like everybody else is getting pregnant. Don't be too hard on yourself. It is normal to feel sad about it, but don't beat yourself up too hard for not getting pregnant right away.
If you think joining a pregnancy-related gathering will just hurt you, politely decline the invitation first to give yourself some time to be away from the things that may cause you more depression.
Be with your partner and try to enjoy each other's company without talking about getting pregnant or trying to conceive. Just relax and have fun with him. Sometimes, trying to conceive can put a risk on the relationship. Make sure to be there for each other during this difficult time.
There are things that you can do in order to boost your body's fertility. If you and your partner have been trying to get pregnant for more than 6 months, set an appointment with your doctor. He or she should be able to assist you further in your trying to conceive journey.
