Lately, I have been more and more determined to have a baby, which has caused some stress.  I have tried meditation and relaxation once a day for an hour to calm my mind and stuff, but sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. 

I have waited for so long to have a baby, but I am worried that this stress of trying to hard to conceive is affecting my hormones?


How do you all keep your cool when trying to have a baby?  Does other relaxation techniques like yoga or massage, help?

This is a good question.  I do meditation, yoga, acupuncture, pedicures and anything else that works.  You might want to check out the Sane TWW thread in Trying to Conceive.  It is a big discussion on how to maintain your sanity and remain zen while TTC.  Good luck!
