The gifts are wrapped. My amazing buffalo chicken dip is made and ready to go. Today is the shower for my friend who is due one week. Before I was supposed to be due. She's gotten huuuge and it's been fun to see her pregnant, but it's a constant reminder of where I was supposed to be. And it's been a little tough to hear her complain about things. I let her know early on that it was a little hard for me but that I'm really happy for her. I can tell she's tried to be sensitive to that.
I'm in a good place, though. I think. Day 2 of +OPK. We DTD last night and I plan to again today (DH doesn't know that part yet;) ). I know my time will come. Things like this baby shower just remind me that I really hope I get my sticky BFP before my original due date rolls around!

Ha, thanks. I didn't throw the shower. I just pitched in a bit. It actually went well. So glad I didn't have to do this right at the end of a cycle. It helped a lot, I think, to be in a place of possibilities instead of getting another BFN or something this morning. Hopefully I'll be there soon enough!

I hope the shower went well. I agree, it's probably a little easier depending on what point of your cycle you're in.

I'm supposed to have a shower this weekend. My friend is due 5 days before my first EDD. However, I feel like this baby is not coming into the best situation, so I'm still undecided if I will go yet. I was really going to try to suck it up and go, but I'm leaning towards no now.
