The holidays can be one of the toughest times for us TTC'ers, can't they? Family asking when we're going to have kids, having to see kids at Christmas dinner, being around pregnant family, etc. How do you deal with seeing new babies or kids during the holidays? It can be so bittersweet. Have you ever not attended a function because you were having a bad day and didn't want to be reminded of what you don't have?

Thanks Bokkechick for my wonderful siggy!

It was always really hard for me. But I always thought in the back of my mind how it's not others faults. It's really hard to be positive. I remember nights crying myself to sleep, especially hearing of others getting pregnant with their second or third child.

I hope it's ok I chimed in. I know I have a baby now... but I WAS their just like those trying right now.

Of course it is okay! You went through this struggle just like the rest of us. That doesn't change just because you have reached the end of (at least this chapter of) the infertility journey.

I feel pretty lucky this year because I probably won't see any babies or pregnant people this year.

I don't get on here much sometimes due to a hectic schedule, but it is nice to read things like this that assure me I'm not the worst person ever for thinking this way. My husbands family seem to all be incredibly fertile and seem to always ask "When are you two going to start a family?" practically every time we see them. I am completely not looking forward to that part of the holidays. We kind of keep our struggles to ourselves so apart from dh and I, only a handful of people very close to us know I have pcos and we have been trying for well over a year. Here's to hoping all of us having troubles will get a special Christmas surprise or something to start the new year out right!
