And in the mail it came, the dreaded invitation..da-da-da!

I got a baby shower invitation in the mail yesterday from a good friend who is due a week before I was supposed to be. She was very supportive through everything & never insensitive at all. I think I am going to nut up & attend this one folks. Normally, I would do my drop off a gift & not attend move, but I need to be happy for her, respectful of her & get over myself for the day. I wonder how I will get through the event since there will obviously not be any alcoholic beverages served there. Hopefully I don't turn into one of those Life*time women who are running out to their car to swig back some Vodka on the the sly (I'm referencing you, Suzanne So*mers). I kid you, I can wait till I get home for that!! Agghh, I kill myself....

Anyway, feeling much better today & finally letting it sink in that there are other options for having children, aside from shooting one out myself. I'm getting ahead of myself, but I think I am just scared to hope that maybe, just maybe, we will finally get our wish this fall. Regardless, it will be O.K., I will be O.K. & everything will be fine.

Hey there - I'm glad to see that you have a plan for the fall. You will be a mom, one way or another. I don't think there's anything wrong with looking into multiple options at the same time - you could start getting some info about adoption now, so that you're ready to make a decision later if need be. It certainly doesn't hurt to be informed, or even get a head start on the long process.

But I am very hopeful that your FET in the fall will be the one for you!

and why no alcohol at the baby shower? Heck, the champagne was flowing liberally at both my showers. Just because I couldn't drink it, didn't mean everybody else had to be deprived. But maybe that just means that all my family & friends are alcoholics.... :-)

Alcohol at any social function should be mandatory. I have served alcohol at a baby shower that I hosted and I got compliments up the wazoo.

I am glad that you are feeling better. Options are a good thing - we have looked into many ourselves.

Hang in there.

You seem to have handled everything that was dealt to you with grace. Again, thank you for commenting, its nice to know I'm not alone.
