When you’re going through infertility Christmas can be especially tough.  Be gentle with yourself and try to avoid situations that may trigger you.  One fellow blogger wrote, “I advise my friends to shop when Santa is not on duty, that way they are much less likely to run into a lot of kids and babies.”  Some days seeing Santa and all the kids may be an encouraging thing as you imagine your future family but other days it may trigger the sadness that accompanies you missing out this year.  Do what’s best for you.
