Does anyone have any suggestions on how to simply relax? What do you do to reduce your stress level? All I can think about is TTC, whether it's my charting or opk...now the doctor suspects I may have endometriosis. So I just don't know what to do to take my mind off this and just relax...

Managing stress is very important when dealing with endometriosis. Here are some relaxation techniques that can help you reduce stress:
- Controlled breathing- inhale slowly and deeply through your nose for a count of four. This really helps you to counteract stress response and promotes calmness.
- Walking or swimming- it keeps you fit and promotes relaxation.
- Meditation- your mind is a very powerful tool.
- Get enough sleep every night- this helps your body regain energy.
- Massage- it really helps a lot on pain management.

We just tackled this in our seminar last week. Hope that helps. God bless you.

Time to myself is the big one for me! With just me and my puppy dog and the tv or computer. Spending the day with no one else around to do exactly what I want. No cleaning or working!! Just exactly what I want.

Good luck hun

Crazy enough to try all over again for a second together baby! Hoping for a much less wild ride this time!

TTC with PCOS for 5 very long years. Annovulatory cycles. Multiple doctors. Different meds. One horrible loss. And then one wonderful success, born 2/18/14.

I never knew until that moment how badly it could hurt to lose something you never really had. - Missed Miscarriage at 10 weeks - 3/26/13

I learned how to crochet to keep my mind off of ttc and all that surrounds it. I sit down with my sewing and a good movie or a good book on cd and sew for hours.
