2 baby showers

Yes I went to both of them. I must be a masochist!


First of all I had a total break down on friday. I can home from work in tears because Im 99.9% sure I am not PG. I started to feel my right ovary on thursday, and on friday I felt it again AND felt my left. I can feel my follies grow. How can I feel that and be PG? Not possible. DH made me feel better and took me out.


Shower #1. I felt too guilty not to go, it was for a friend. So I went late and sat with my girlfriends. Lucky for me they are a great distraction. They talk though the gifts and everything. I got though it no problem. I was surprised. But then some people started to ask me for updates and they want to know how this are going for me fertility wise. Well I cant talk about that at a shower. Come on! So I kept brushing off the question and leaving the scene sorta speak.


Shower #2. This was for my SIL. I went yesterday (excuse for being late to the other shower) and decorated the house, wrapped a gigantic gift basket and got things ready. This was the hard one. So first I almost but my back out placing this supper heavy gift behind her special shower chair. So my back is killing me and I cant take anything strong because I POAS on wendsay. So just incase I am still being careful. Oh and About an hour after that I get a migraine. Just lovely! I sat on the floor next to her and helped with the gifts. I was doing ok. Then after I started to feel it, stress. I didnt want to talk to anyone, no distraction. No one there was a friend it was all family. Im just glad no one asked me if I was going to get PG soon. I would have lost it. There was my SIL and her 2 PG cousins. Just lovely, belly rubs. Got to love that. So later the guests are gone and her husband shows up. Now its time for party #2 of the day? What? They want to know what time DH is coming over to eat. (I married an Italian, its all about the food) I tell FIL and MIL that he isnt coming, hes not feeling well. I got the third degree from their eyes! They were pressuring me to bring him. WTF! Cant I just finally go already! I think 4 hours of hell is enough! So IU make a break for it and leave.


I walk in the door at home with tears in my eyes and DH asks "whats wrong?" DUHHHH idiot! So I start yelling at him about my crappy day and stomp away. When I walk back though the room he tells me HES upset over the shower and his parents and I need to give him a few minutes to cool down. EXCUSE ME! I just went though hell but he needs a few minutes!!! UGGGHHHH!!!!

Sorry Cynthia, two in one day is just more than anyone should have to deal with. At least they are behind you now and you don't have to think about one for hopefully a long time!

Cynthia,


Wow you had quite a day.


Sorry you had to endure all that and in 1 day no less.


At least it is over now and I think you handled everything quite well. Not sure that I would have:)

Very smart, skip out on all 3 if you can get away with it! I skipped the last one I was invited to and it was great. Weekend time is too precious to waste on that.
