Here we go again.
Deep breath. In, out. Quiet your brain.
You’ve got some time yet.
Do some yoga.
Drink more water.
More green things.
Try not to worry about the weight you’ve gained in the last few years.
Try not to worry about any other medical issues they may not have found yet.
Try not to worry about getting time off work, it’ll happen.
Try to think of how to write it down on paper. How to express this anxiety that seems to be coursing through everything.
Mute your watch’s heartrate warnings.
Do some more yoga.
Breathe in, out. Don’t forget to do that.
Focus on work during the day, and being calm at night.
Calm. You’re supposed to be calm.
Don’t try to rid yourself of the worrying thoughts. Just turn them down. Lower their volume. You can worry all you like – hell, you’re going to whether you try to or not. Just try and lower the noise.
Think positively. Or something.
Don’t be scared of the negative thoughts, too. It’s normal.
Think about better success rates for round 2. Think about going into it with experience.
Think about the injections being a breeze, the scans being old hat, the ovaries doing their thing.
You’ve done it all before.
You got this.
