If you’re feeling that you’ll never get pregnant and time is fast running out, you may be thinking that getting pregnant is going to be impossible. But is it, or is what you’re experiencing now, just a bump in the road? Can you negotiate the bumps in the road and avoid destination impossible?
Firstly, “impossible” is usually a moveable goal: breaking the 4 minute mile barrier; going to the moon; IVF; heart transplants; the list goes on. You can often find ways to improve your chances of getting pregnant so that what once seemed impossible might now not be.
Secondly, “impossible” is often a state of mind. When Roger Bannister broke the 4 minute mile, conditions were not in his favour. Doctors had said it was physically impossible and on the day the wind was against him. He could have quit, or put it off to another day or settled for second best with a time of just under 4 minutes. But he didn’t. He stuck to his plan, kept his resolve and went out and did what he needed to do. And afterwards runner after runner broken the 4 minute mile.
Thirdly, “impossible” gets more embedded with stress. Allowing the bumps in the road to dominate your thinking causes you to focus on what’s wrong (what you don’t want) , rather than what you do want. Stress creates a ‘can’t do’, rather than a ‘can do’ mindset. So keep it light, roll with the punches and relax into the flow of life.
I’ve said it before: how you think affects how you feel, and how you feel affects your physical condition. You will be helping your chances of getting pregnant if you’re optimistic, relaxed and have a healthy balance in your life.
