Where else can I vent about this but here. I can't even watch tv, every frickin' commercial is Mother's day! I'd like to completely ignore the whole thing, but I do want to honor my mom, gram & dh's mom & gram. Like I really want to shop but anywhoo, just irritated and wanted to vent somewhere where I'm understood.

Last year we had just started trying at Mothers day and I was pretty hard for me - this year we will be visiting our mothers and I really DON'T want to have a hard time so I think I will really really focus on MY mother and MIL and not on myself. With two families to visit I should be able to keep myself busy.
The thing I dread, and have for quite a few years is church - they have great talks about mothers which is fine - then they pass out flowers or something to all the women in the congregation. All the women over-18 regardless of childbearing status - I know they do this so as not to single anyone out but it seems so fake and subtracts meaning from really being a mom - of course if they only gave them to mothers then I would be upset about that to. Perhaps I'm just grumpy.

I hate Mothers day for me because it brings home all that I am not - a mum but on the other hand I love the opportunity of showing my mum just how special she is to me.
Mothers day like Christmas Day, Easter & Fathers day are all yucky reminders of what is missing from all of our lives.
Hoping that we all have as painless a Mothers Day as we can.

That is hard. I'd have a hard time going to church for that reason. Maybe you and hubby should just go out to breakfast or do something special for you two. God knows you deserve it. Last mother's day I was pg. and then miscarried a month later. This mother's day I am due for my beta. My friend said wait till Monday. I don't know which way to go. I'm dying for the 2ww to be over, but then don't want to remember mother's day again with bad news.
