Response to Have you changed your lifestyle completely?


I say do what makes you happy. I was on this journey for 4 years and tried everything. It made me truly miserable, especially the caffeine and alcohol restrictions. So basically I had no natural pregnancies for 4 yrs and finally had success on an IUI. My dd is now 22 mo and since she was born I have been living it up with alcohol and caffeine (because I felt deprived for so long), I have eaten moderately well, and I have exercised a lot because that makes me feel good. I also always took a multivitamin (one a day). We were trying sort of half heartedly but I was truly shocked 11 wks ago to get a natural bfp at almost 42.

So I think it is more important that you are happy and don't feel deprived than anything the supplements or restrictions can ever do for you. Easy advice from my position, and I probably wouldn't have taken it a couple years ago but there it is.

So far everything looks good, we have an u/s next week that I am very nervous about but certainly I have seen lots of healthy live babies born to over 40s here. Good luck to everyone here, I know how hard it is to face infertility but to have to give up some very enjoyable parts of life seemed so unfair to me.

Also, I think there is part of us that believes that if we truly suffer, we will be rewarded with a baby (at least that was part of my thoughts). Obviously this is irrational and if you are truly suffering that may inhibit your chances even more.

just my 0.02
