All I Wanted for Christmas was a Positive Pregnancy Test...

...and all I got was my period. On Christmas morning.

Obviously, DH and I were pretty crushed.

Still, we had a lovely time visiting family and friends. We had to endure a couple of Christmas parties stuffed with pregnant ladies and toddlers but all in all we were able to enjoy ourselves.

I'm writing all this on New Year's Eve and I am trying to look back and be grateful for all the good things that happened this year. For example, going through all this has made DH and I appreciate each other so much more.

In all honesty though, I pretty much want to tell 2008 to "Suck it." 2008 was a horrible, crappy year in which I think I have cried more than I have in my whole life put together before finding out I am infertile. We're going to get out of this hole one way or another, I just hope that it happens somehow someway sometime during 2009. I really do not want another period on Christmas (this year makes two in a row!). So here's hoping that 2009 is a better year for me and for everybody else out there in infertility purgatory!

I'm so sorry you were disappointed on Christmas. This holiday was so difficult for so many of us and I truly hope that next year's is very different. Out with 2008! Wishing you all the best in the new year.

2008 ~can~ suck it!!

I am so sorry AF found you on Christmas morning. But I am much impressed over your hand-made Christmas gifts! I would have had multiple nervous break downs and nothing to show for it in the end. You should be very proud!!

I was wondering where you were! Booo to AF on christmas day. I'm right there with you though. I had such a sucky 2008, 2009 is bound to be better. I'm praying for motherhood in 2009.

I'm sorry that your christmas sucked. I know its a bit late to be commenting, but better late than never. I actually had a wonderful christmas and was "pupo" which turned into a BFP on new years...and a miscarriage in January, what a surprise. After a shitty start to the year, I'm with you when I say: I truly hope 2009 is a better year for you both! (and us too).
