I’ll try to make this story as short as possible; I guess I just feel the need to vent in hopes that someone might understand how I feel. I’m almost 37 weeks pregnant with baby #2. I did not have a baby shower with #1 because a.) no one offered b.) we were moving to a different state in a few months. Fast forward we are now in a new state with new friends. When I was around 25 weeks pregnant, one of my closest “new” friends told my husband that she was going to throw me a surprise “Sprinkle”. One night I was telling my husband maybe we could do a BBQ and diaper raffle and he had to tell me about the surprise so I wouldn’t plan a get together myself. He made me swear to forget about it and let it be a surprise. Every weekend since then, I have thought “OH maybe today it’s happening!” And nothing. Now that I’m so far along I finally asked my husband if it was happening and he said he would text her to find out. She never responded. The kicker is that this friend finally got pregnant from IVF and I know she has been super busy with all she has gone through. I guess I just feel bummed because I never really got the whole baby shower experience, I wanted the pictures with the friends’ hands on my belly and just the overall experience of feeling “special” for the day. A maternity dress, all that Jazz. My husband feels like a total jerk for telling me. Maybe I’m just being extra emotional and sensitive? I’m trying not to be mad about it because she has had such a tough time getting pregnant! Sorry this was so long, thank you for letting me vent!
