Holidays can be hard and challenging when you’re going through Infertility Treatments, but Halloween, mainly marketed and geared towards kids and their parents, might be the scariest one. Another year passes, and you’re reminded of all the plans you made about trick-or-treating with your little one in a costume, having fun. There is no way for a stranger to know how difficult this is for you.
Just because you’re waiting for your own little to go trick or treating, there is no reason you can’t have fun at Halloween. Here are some tips we recommend to help you enjoy this holiday without surrounding yourself with reminders of becoming a parent.
Some candies may be therapeutic during this day, so buy a bag of your favorite treats and simply enjoy them! Candies lower stress by stimulating your body to produce serotonin and dopamine. Those are the neurotransmitters that will make you feel much better.
If you love watching scary movies, a Halloween marathon at home will make it for you. Another option – if you are more of an extrovert – is to go to the movie theater to catch the newly released films. Whether you like light-hearted, comical or truly scary movies, you’ll be surely set to have a fun and comfortable night!
If you have adult friends with no kids yet, invite them all over for a fun night of non-alcohol drinks and treats at your place. Get some spooky decorations, a great Halloween soundtrack, and a creative costume. Having a good time with your friends will allow you to let loose and relax.
Consider going trick-or-treating with a friend or family member that could use help with their little ones. It can even be a nice gesture if a family has lots of kids and needs an extra hand walking around the neighborhood. You can also do this with your nieces or nephews. If you are not in the mood for something like this, you can stay at home and gift candies from the coziness of your home. The point here is trying to participate and being accompanied if needed.
Naturally, everyone is at different stages of their infertility journey. What works for one person may not work for you, so don’t put pressure on yourself, you’re doing the best you can. The important thing is to give yourself room to feel however you feel, and not to beat yourself up if you’re not into it.
