Surviving the Infertile Holidays

Status message

Active context: desktop

The holidays can be a difficult time for anyone experiencing infertility. You are bound to hear a few unexpected pregnancy announcements, and you may dread the "are you pregnant yet?" annoying inquiries.

Here are our tips on surviving the holidays (while still having a great time!):

  1. Buy yourself an extra special Christmas treat. Our suggestion is a girl's day out at the spa (we love mani and pedis!), or treat yourself to a new book or a day out at the movies.
  2. Make a list of everything you are grateful for this year. When you’re feeling down, look back at that list to cheer yourself up.
  3. Challenge yourself to baking the world’s most delicious cake (just don’t eat it all yourself!).
  4. Shopping therapy! You don’t need to spend a lot of money, but treat yourself to one amazing new outfit to wear to Christmas dinner.
  5. Enjoy the time with your family. This is (hopefully) your last Christmas without kids, so enjoy some special time with your special someone.
