    Unhappy Holidays_Family

    So dreading meeting my family! They will start where is the baby? How come you guys are not pregnant yet? I am going to scream! My husband might go off on them, he can't stand when they make comments like that, cause you do not know what type of situation the couple is going through. We've been trying for about year and nothing, so it will be hard not announcing were not pregnant, oh boy, I can see their faces now . Geez another holiday coming and no baby, here I go again!!! Do you know what makes it worse, is that my twin brother already has 3 kids, but is expecting another one! Gotta love life!

    That's awful! I'm lucky that my mother keeps her mouth shut about the baby thing, she asked me once when she's getting another grandchild, not since. I know they are all expecting us to have another one soon (I have an 8 yr/o from a previous marriage and have been getting the when's she getting a baby bro/sis for 8years now), we've also been trying for a year and nothing, time for us to head to a fertility specialist
    My younger brother and his wife have 2 kids that I love to death it's a constant reminder that we're still not PG

    Fertility problems are especially hard to handle around the holidays when it seems like everyone is shopping for a LO or asking about when you will have one. So sorry you have to deal with this! I would say you might want to tell them you're trying, but then you have to deal with "if you'd just relax it would happen."

    I'm sorry you're having to deal with this sweetie. It really is miserable. This is the first holiday season we've been through while TTC. Of course I thought for sure I'd be pregnant by now and these holidays would be the best ever. Well, that hasn't happened at all. I didn't really think much about what people would say since no one knows we're trying. I got it ALL weekend with DH's family. I think 5 or 6 different times in two days. It was "Well hopefully next year you guys will have a little one here with us on Thanksgiving", and "Seriously when are you going to give your niece a cousin", and "When are you two having kids anyway?" It drove me nuts! I finally told my SIL that we were trying so she'd shut up. Apparently she was convinced I was pregnant and about to announce it. Instead of it shutting her up though she just got all excited and then they ambushed my husband the next day. BIL is a pharmacist and he wanted to know which fertility drug I was on, etc etc. DH acted like he had no clue what he was talking about which was funny but man what a mess! I know exactly how you feel! It's so miserable. I also finally told DH's aunt because it took her over a year with each child and that included multiple miscarriages with each too. I knew she'd understand and also appreciate our need for secrecy. Hopefully at Christmas she'll be a buffer when this junk comes up again.

    I hope it gets easier for you throughout the holidays. Good luck sweetie!

    TTC is stressful enough (especially when it's been a while), add in the stress of the holidays and tha last thing anyone needs is family pressure on top of that. Thoughts go out to all and I hope we can all survive the season with our sanity intact!
