I know that this upcoming Sunday is going to be rough on a lot of you, especially for those who are conceiving their firsts, so I thought this article about How to Overcome the Mother's Day Blues might be helpful.

I had a good rant and cry to my DH, which helped alleviate some of my sadness. The rest of the Mother's Day blues can't be overcome, IMO. I'll be sad no matter what because I'm not a mom yet and it won't miraculously happen overnight.

I did call my mom and chat with her a bit. Not so much about mother day stuff, but just to talk. It is always nice to talk to her, but it still doesn't fully relieve the underlying sadness/ache that I have.
