Oh I completely know what you mean Tamar. All of my family lives in NY/NJ and I live in VA. I have not seen any of my extended family since my wedding May 2009. My mother told me I needed to come up after the holidays so we could all visit. I absolutely DREAD it. I know they will ask me when I am going to have kids especially since my younger sister has her daughter. What do you even say? Ugh I am dreading it but I know I cannot avoid it.

I wish you tons of luck Tamar, hopefully it is not too painful. Maybe you will get your BFP and can talk about that.

Hey Tamar, I'm sending lots of cyber hugs to you. I know how difficult that can be. I hate to be in that situation but unfortunatley I am alot. I guess the only way I cope is by telling myself I will have a family too one day. I just have so much faith that it will happen and that helps me.

I hope you enjoy your holiday. Take care.
