Well, it's Mother's Day. While I am certainly glad to be able to celebrate my awesome Mom and my mother-in-law on this day, it's not exactly my favorite holiday. Last year it had only been a few months, so this holiday didn't bother me. This year, well it's a reminder that I'm still not at the place I thought I would be when we started this journey. It's a reminder that (seemingly) all of my friends are celebrating Mother's Day. It's a reminder that I may just be the only person on Facebook that doesn't have a picture of my uterus for all to see.
So to celebrate my un-Mother's Day I have scheduled myself for a massage and I've got a stack of magazines I plan to read while laying in the sun. It's likely I'll have a glass of wine or two as well, ha! take that pregnant ladies! What will I not be doing? Going to church. I know, I know. This is a controversial topic in the infertility circle, but to tell the truth, I just don't think I can handle going to a celebration of motherhood. Maybe one day.
