It's been awhile

Hi Ladies-

Its been awhile since I've been here. I lost my little angel on December 2nd. I have been having some really hard days, with my due date just 6 short weeks away right now. I HAVE to go to a shower this Saturday (its my husbands cousin, and everyone would be highly offended if I didn't go), and am not looking forward to it. She was due just 2 days before me. I have talked to her, and let her know that I don't want her to mask herself in front of me. They have tried for years, and were not able to conceive, so they so deserve this. I just want my baby sooo bad right now. I don't really have any questions, just coming to vent. I am so sorry for all the loses that you all have experienced.

A coworker and close friend of mine is leaving on maternity leave in two weeks. As I'm technically her boss, I'm supposssed to throw her a baby shower at work. I'm good enough friends with her that I told her flat out that I didn't want to do it and that I was going to ask someone else to be in charge. I wanted her to know that if she doesn't get one, it's not that I don't care, it's that I just couldn't do it. I'll buy a gift though. Family is different. I'd have to go if it was family. I know how you feel though. It's dreafull to wwatch other people who have the things you want so bad.

Hugs. I could not go to baby showers for a long time.

I have been avoiding baby showers, and thankfully the big ones have been on days that we had other big things going on. I don't think I could handle it at all. Hugs! I hope you make it through okay. Maybe plan on having an excuse if you need to leave before it is all done, and also plan on rewarding yourself after, with a milkshake or a new shirt or something.
