The holidays can be a very hard time of year, especially when facing fertility issues.  I found a great article with tips on coping during the holidays, and it has a section that you can even pass on to your family and friends: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mary-hinckley-md/infertility-coping-during-holidays_b_1120336.html

Will you follow any of the tips they suggested?  Have you already thought about how you'll handle the added holiday stress?

I find that if I stay busy, the less I get down about wanting to get pregnant.  It sucks to see other people with their families though.

Thanks for the article, I think I might be sharing that with some of my relatives. I plan on giving myself plenty of me time, especially if I am having a day where it's harder to cope. I also plan on keeping busy in the kitchen or with other tasks.
