Keeping up appearances? 

 

What does that mean when it comes to infertility?

 

Think teeth, eyes, exercise, food, heart and more. We have this one physical body in which to move around our lives with, just the one. It has a lot of pieces and parts that need tender, loving care.

 

If you are focusing on infertility and fertility treatment, you may be neglecting the rest of you.

 

All of you matters. Every single piece that adds up to you as a whole.

 

Take care of all of you by making and going to the appointments that keep all of you healthy. 

 

Do the following, not necessarily in this order. You know what needs to be done first.

 

The thing you feel most guilt about neglecting?

 

Get that one off your list first and feel the relief!

 

  1. Your eyes checked
     
  2. Your teeth cleaned
     
  3. Speak with a nutritionist
     
  4. Complete physical
     
  5. Any other specialists that are indicated, including dermatologists, cardiologists, and more. The specialists that you need to see to keep your physical self in the best health possible. 
     
  6. Get yourself exercising, in or out of the gym

Fertility treatment takes a lot of focus and attention. But we are not made up simply of our reproductive organs and our ability to have a baby.

 

Take care of all of you. You deserve it.
