Tell Me to "Just Relax" and I'll . . .

June 3, 2010

"If you just relax, you'll probably get pregnant. I have a friend who decided she wasn't going to even think about getting pregnant, and then it just happened!"

If by now you've visited with a fertility doctor, then you know nothing "just happens."
Surely, people dispensing this not-so-sage advice don't mean any harm, but hearing them tell you to "just relax" might compel you to do them some harm. Instead of fantasizing about shoving them really hard and throwing a right hook, take a deep breath and say . . .

    "Thanks for the advice, I'll see what my doctor has to say about all of this."
