My DH and I have been TTC for just over a year. My problem is that I’m not ovulating and all of my tests have come back normal. (I’m suppose to start Clomid in January.) Needless to say I’m frustrated to know there is a problem and no explanation as to why. :grr:
Anyways, I know the holidays are going to be hard to get through at my in-laws. My DH’s step-brother and his wife have a new baby and that is all anyone focuses on anymore. When he’s there, everyone talks to him, about him or scrambles to hold him. When he’s not there, all my MIL talks about is his latest accomplishments. I understand that a new baby is exciting, but it’s becoming too much to handle. There was even a time when I was in the middle of a sentence and she up and walked away because the baby just came in the house!
I just don’t know how to deal with this with a smile on my face. I get so emotional now it’s hard not to break into tears on the spot. I’m running out of excuses as to why I’m not excited to see and/or hold the baby. No one seems to understand how difficult our situation is and emotionally draining these visits are becoming. (After Thanksgiving, I came home and cried for an hour.) Any advice on how to prepare for the next month would be appreciated!
