Hello lovely ladies.
I just wanted to get your opinion on baby showers and IVF.
We've been TTC for 3.5years and I'm 35, so as I'm sure is the same for a lot of you all too, it feels like everyone is having babies but us. And with those babies come baby showers
My friend has her baby shower tomorrow and she's aware of my circumstance and when I told her how it might be difficult for me to come she said it wasn't really a 'shower' just some girlfriends together and she really wants me there. I think quite rightly it will be a celebration of her forthcoming birth and everything that goes with it (even if I find the whole American import quite annoying) and I suppose it just depends on your own state of mind on the day as to whether you go or not.
I'm really worried about not letting her down versus metaphorically punching myself in the stomach by going.
I suppose it comes down to self preservation and good friends will understand. But maybe I'm building it up in my head more than it would be in reality, is it just tea, cake and a girly chat?
