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 questions regarding your TTC status?

I could really use some advice and suggestions on how to deal with this! I feel as though this is a very personal question and it really irks me when people just openly ask me about it. My husband and I have decided that this is a very personal decision and it's not really anyone's business. We finally caved and told our best friends (they are married and trying for their second); but they are the only one's we plan on telling. I have some medical problems and will be considered high risk so we are being extra cautious about putting it out there. There is this one lady at my church whom I may very well punch in the face one day soon...EVERY week she bugs me about when we are going to have a baby and I DON'T EVEN KNOW HER! Please help!!!
