The holidays are supposed to be fun but they can also be very stressful. Now throw in tubal ligation reversal and trying to conceive. Trying to conceive is another whole stress added to the mix.
For those who are using the OPK’s and BBT there is the waking every morning to make sure to not move around too much and grab the thermometer which in many cases goes flying somewhere in the dark. Then there is the timed “baby dance”. With all this you are trying to think of what to buy that one person that has everything and you had better make it good.
Having the holidays creep up and trying to conceive after a tubal ligation reversal is stressful to say the least. We get obsessed with the baby-making schedule and pray this is the month where AF doesn’t rear her ugly head. What a great holiday gift that would make!
The tubal ligation reversal message board on the Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center message board is full of women who are experiencing the same stress. But, by being able to converse with one another they somehow manage to keep their sanity.
The one most important factor to remember with the holidays, tubal reversal surgery and trying to conceive is that stress is not going to help any of us. Try to find a why to just take time for you or you and your partner. Even if it is a quiet dinner in away from the crowds just to unwind.
The Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center website has a great tubal ligation reversal message board for those who are looking for friendship and support. While you are on the website check out the new tubal ligation reversal videos as well as the blog.
