Welcome 2017 As The Year Of Successfully Building Your Family
Check out the image for today's PathtoFertility blog. That's where the title is, up above. The image is of a bunch of rocks, raising their glasses in celebration.
Welcome 2017 as Being Your Year for a Baby
You might not be in a position to raise a glass right now. There may be no drinking of this kind allowed as you wait for test results that show "yes you are pregnant" or "no, I'm sorry, you're not pregnant". If you are between cycles or waiting to begin fertility treatment, maybe you are raising a glass to 2017 being your year for a baby.
Celebrating early- means doing less or completely removing some things from your life in preparation to becoming pregnant. At least for the time being. Infertility means cutting back on caffeine, alcohol consumption, recreational drugs (cutting these out completely), extreme exercise and more.
Fertility treatment cycles mean adding things too. Adding doctor's appointments, procedures, blood draws, medication. Fertility treatment also means adding the real possibility of becoming pregnant and building the family that you have been dreaming of- now. This could be your year.
In regards to adding things to try to become pregnant, we want to be doing everything we can for you. And we know that you want to be doing everything you can to become and stay pregnant. Consider us your partner, even if you are not a patient of Reproductive Medicine Associate of Connecticut (RMACT)'s. Even if you are half way around the world. We will give you reliable, research driven information to help you achieve a successful pregnancy.
And we will offer lots of support while we're doing it.
Let's give 2017 the best chance of success. And let's do it together.
Happy New Year.
