I'm editing to add that: I AM HOPEFUL. I AM ACTUALLY OPTIMISTIC in spite of the number and quality of embryo. I believe a miracle could happen!!
But I just wondered how you have absolutely ZERO stress and no activity and how you do it for a long time.
I think I had almost 3 days with very little stress (with 1 tiny exception) and very little activity.
But I had to fly after my 3 day bed rest.
I mostly didn't lift my luggage but I thought there was one thing that was light and I did lift it. It wasn't quite as light as I thought. Then I also sort of spaced it and lifted some groceries. Not super heavy but not super light.
I had trouble sleeping last night because my sleep cycles was a little wonky from the bed rest and the travel. My heart was beating fast and I woke up several times. My sleep's been irregular and interrupted.
I have to go back to work in a few days.
My question is: How do you have absolutely ZERO stress after undergoing a critical procedure and leading a normal life?
I'm really taking it easy!!! Life is just intervening on me.
This is a somewhat stressful process. Life is sort of stressful too, right? I'm assuming everyone has complicated lives.
Someone in my family had a stroke and someone called me to upbraid me for not calling (How was I going to know)...my husband forgot to call me when he was on the road and didn't answer his hotel phone for hours so I got worried about him. Then, I could not sleep at all for hours. I think it just keyed me up.
I accidentally raised my heart rate slightly when I was walking up a bunch of flights of stairs. There was no elevator and since I walked those stairs so many times, I really did not think of it as 'exercise.'
I know it sounds like I'm not taking care of myself but I really am!! I'm mostly staying in bed but I simply had to get back to my family after 3 days and then someone had a stroke and there are things to do...Life is complicated!
I am finding THE MOST STRESSFUL part the imperative to have NO stress.
But this would ALWAYS be my life. And I don't even feel THAT stressed about it. It's just normal life. I'm only stressed because I feel like I have to blissful and serene and I don't know if that's ever possible...at least in my life.
But there is a little stress here and there. Which I find is magnified by my feeling like I am doing something wrong by having any stress.
I meditate and I do this kind of yoga breathing that relaxes me.
I'm just giving examples. But I don't anticipate that I will have a period where nothing will ever happen or I will feel absolutely no stress at all.
