5 things women dealing with infertility need to do
eat chocolate: Go for a walk and bring a bar of dark chocolate. Nibble as you walk and let yourself daydream.
buy baby clothes: Go to the shops and buy a coming home outfit for the baby you would love to have. Have fun touching the cute clothes, picking the right pattern and hoping for the future.
see a specialist: Do not just hope for a baby. Get proactive and find a good doctor. Make an appointment that your husband can come along to. You'll want both your medical records and be ready to undergo tests for fertility. Lean on each other as you travel through this scary phase.
eat a salad a day: This is not about losing weight or dieting. Eating a salad takes longer, you have to slow down and chew your food. Fresh and raw greens are great for your health and gives you lots of energy to pursue your hobbies and your baby making. Make a salad of steamed chard, butter lettuce, carrots, peas and bell peppers. Create a daily meal time for you and your sweetheart to enjoy munching and talking together.
