I went to the gym tonight. I Know. Big Call 🙏🤞🙏 I struggle with bouts of depression and before I begun IVF I realised that working out really helped to elevate my moods. I've been contemplating the pro's and con's of staying active during the first trimester and no matter how many pregnant women you see at the gym totally happy, healthy and thriving in their pregnancies you cant help but obsess over all the horror stories 😮 am I sweating too much??did I go too hard??did I drink enough before I started this set?? Wait, didnt that article say I shouldn't lift weights 😫 aaaaaaah! This was meant to be a stress reliever, not a stress inducer 😭 No matter what you do or dont do in IVF it seems there is ALWAYS an article somewhere about who it did and then who it didnt work for, you cant win! So for the sake of mine and hubby's sanity I made an executive decision (ofcourse I checked and double checked then checked again with my fertility nurses to make sure it was okay 😄) to start back at the gym and just pull back slightly to what I usually do. I had hoped I would come home feeling better but instead I'm just nervous hoping I didnt compromise our little pepi 🙏 Uuugggh come on 12 weeks... #mentalhealth #gym #workout #tww #earlypregnancy #13dpo #8dp5dt #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfnz #ivfmaori #ivfsuccess #ivfsupport #ivfcommunity #ivfpregnancy #ivfwarrior #ivftransfer #ivfbaby #ivfgotthis #ivfmiracle #ivfstrongertogether #fertility #fertilityjourney #fertilityawareness #fertilitytreatment #fertilityclinic #embryotransfer #ivfround1 #thirdembryotransfer #fertilitynz
