Among the good strategies of dealing with stress of infertility and IVF (apart from acupuncture, of course!) is getting more information about your condition and what you can do.
Another one is reading stories of people who have been in your situation. I can recommend you a couple of good books.
One, The Infertility Cure, is on acupuncture and infertility, but it also gives you a good roundup of diet and other things you can do yourself. Another one recommended by one of my patients, is Legs Up and Laughing. In this book Vanessa Bates takes you on her “Big Great Fertility Ride”. This one is for you AND your partner.
