It’s less than 2 weeks to Christmas and most likely you are already making arrangements for Christmas parties, family reunions and so on. It is really the season to be jolly and a time to let our hair down after a busy year.
But… it is not always a festive occasion for everyone. You see, because it is a family holiday, you might be faced with people asking you impertinent questions like when are you going to have a baby?, what have you been doing to get pregnant? or maybe they don’t even ask but you know they are thinking it.
And for some of women, Christmas reminds them that their family is not complete maybe because they really hoped to have conceived or had their babies by now or because they lost a pregnancy that they were so excited about.
So how can you handle this at Christmas/New Year?
Firstly, you need to work on yourself. Because no matter what people say or think, what makes you feel sad or angry is how all these make you feel. If you do not feel unhappy about the situation, then no one else has the power to make you sad. Try the following to help you remain positive:
- Remember that you are on a journey and you will arrive at your destination in due course. This reminds you that it’s not that you are never going to have a baby, you are working towards it and it will happen. Use this powerful visualisation audio to build the confidence in you. You can download it here if you haven’t done so already.
- Repeat positive affirmations to yourself. I always recommend Biblical verses because they remind us of God’s own promises to us. You can try The Lord is My Shepherd, there is nothing I shall want (whether it’s children, finances, good health or even just the strength to face the world on those tough days). Or I can do all things in Him who strengthens me. Choose the verses that resonate deeply with you and remind you that you are a cherished daughter of God.
- Do something about conception so that you know that you are on your way to having a healthy baby. If you are not doing anything or you have given up, then it is easier to feel depressed about the situation. As long as you doing something that is bringing you to conception e.g. following your meal plan then you know you can hold your head up.
- Last but certainly not the least, think about all the great things that God has blessed you with this year. It is so easy to remember what we still do not have but we forget all the blessings that God has consistently showered us with e.g. a better job, better marriage, good health, good friends and so many more. A grateful heart is a joyful heart.
Do these things and you will be able to enjoy the well-deserved Christmas celebrations with your friends and family without feeling bad, sad or guilty.
And to help you, I am bringing back the New Eve Conception Care Plan. I haven’t offered this since the beginning of the year. It consists of a private assessment, consultation and a detailed plan to help you conceive. It is different from my courses or classes because it is very personal. You will know why you are still trying to get pregnant or losing your pregnancy and exactly what you need to do to have a healthy pregnancy.
Sign up for it here at a Christmas special offer. These plans are only available until the 20th of December.
