Infertility Doesn't Care About Holidays

Posted on January 2, 2012 at 4:58 PM
I will start this post by wishing everyone a happy and healthy New Year. Not just because it's the cliche thing to say this time of year, but because I really wish you happiness and good health this year. By happiness, I mean the fulfillment one feels when realizing their goals. By good health, I mean whatever it takes to be happy, while taking the best care of the body, mind and spirit.
Whether your family building happens biologically, or through a donor egg/sperm, or through a surrogate, or adoption, I wish for you that it comes true this year, in whatever form it takes shape.
Over the holidays, many of you spent days or weeks continuing your quest for a family. Or maybe you took a hiatus. Maybe you spent your holidays close to home, while enduring another IVF treatment. Maybe you spent time with your families, dodging questions about why you're not with child yet. Maybe you were preoccupied, waiting for your adoption attorney to call you with good news.
To someone undergoing fertility treatments, the holidays represent the best and worst time of year. The best, because once a child blesses your life, you can't wait to share all of the traditions and experiences that the holidays represent. The worst, because without a child, the holidays are just filled with tension and stress (OK, even with a child, the holidays can be stressful, but let's just get there first!).
I hope whatever your situation, that your holidays were also a reminder of the importance of family and friends, and how comforting their presence can be during darker times. Lean on them as much as you are comfortable doing, and pull strength from wherever you can. Most of all, be kind to yourself. It's the best gift you can get.

People in their lives are in constant forward, or climbing, or row, or walking or sitting, or even lying down nor did give up.

In some cases of infertility, if with the treatment a couple could not get results in the shape of baby then they feel disappoint and cannot enjoy their holidays either Easter or Christmas with peak of fun. On the other hand, if you have IVF and having hope of pregnancy then it will doubled your happiness on the holidays. To someone undergoing fertility treatments, the holidays becomes the best and worst time of year due to the hope of baby. I hope people who read your post will get maximum inspiration and will enjoy holidays apart from worries.
