As we head into Mother’s Day weekend, I am keenly aware of how difficult this day is for those battling infertility. Here’s a list of ideas on how to survive Mother’s Day while living with infertility, developed with the help of some beautiful women I know who are walking this path right now. 

🌷Celebrate your mother/ grandmother (giving honor)

🌷Send cards to your friends who are mothers (loving others)

🌷Do something for yourself you can’t do while pregnant (loving yourself)

🌷Jump on your bed, dance freely, take a run – release the painful emotions through hard activity (express your pain).

🌷Skip church and do something fun with your husband instead (protect your heart).

🌷Plant a tree or flowering bush (build memorials).

Do you have any other ideas?  If so, drop them in the comments below.
