I know it is an odd request, but I'm wondering if we could just skip the upcoming weekend and move right through to the following week? Whats that, you'd like to keep your weekend? Well, I guess if your going to be picky, maybe we could just skip Saturday.
If you hadn't already guessed, I have a baby shower to attend on Saturday afternoon. While I am extremely happy for the mama-to-be, I can't help but despise the idea of going and sitting in a room FULL of pregnant women ogling over tiny baby clothes. Unfortunately the shower had to fall 2 weeks after our final failed iui cycle. It would have been worlds easier to attend if I were still feeling hopeful in the 2ww, but why would things start going my way now?!?!
I think the part I hate the most is that I was asked to co-host this shower shortly after the pregnancy was announced early last fall. I confided in one of the other hosts that it would just be too difficult if I still wasn't pregnant and facing fertility treatments to make cute decorations and come up with fun party games. I had it all counted out and I knew when our last IUI would be approximately. I knew if those didn't work, that around this time we'd be moving on to IVF. Deep down I think I knew then that this is where we'd be. Maybe I jinxed myself!
Perhaps I deserve a pedicure on Saturday morning. You know, to relax a bit before heading into the lion's den. Too bad the majority of my friends are co-hosting the shower and will be together preparing for the big event. For some reason pedi's are always better when shared with a friend.
Ok, enough is enough. This pity party is O-V-E-R! I have 4.5 days to suck it up. I can do this. I can do this. I can do this!
