I was reading through some old posts about that fabulous (eh-hem) holiday that most people in the infertility community have some trouble with: Mother's Day.
Oh yes...it's back.
Some women struggle, because it is a reminder that they are not yet mothers. Some women struggle, because they already are mothers and believe they should feel grateful for what they have; the guilt can overshadow the joy.
Partners struggle, because they don't want to see their wives/girlfriends/loves-of-their-life hurting anymore.
I was going to write a whole new post about how to cope with this one day a year, but last year's post is still totally appropriate: The Holiday You've Been Waiting For (and waiting, and waiting, and waiting)
In short: Be kind to yourself. You deserve it.
Until next time...be well,
