I want a baby shower.
My first baby was a preemie. He was born 4 days before my shower was supposed to be. Perhaps if the shower had been scheduled for the following weekend we still could have had it, but no way was I physically and emotionally up for dealing with people 4 days after unexpectedly giving birth and with my baby in the hospital still.
So I never had a shower. We kind of considered having a sip and see or something, but honestly I didn't want very many people anywhere near him the first 2 months of his life.
I've always been opposed to showers or even really "sprinkles" for a second baby but...I wish I could have one. I'm sad I missed out. The first baby shower I went to after my son was born made me extra sad I didn't get one. Especially because my sister had planned all sorts of awesome decorations and stuff for my shower.
So, I'm bummed that it's an experience that I'm missing out on and just needed to get this off of my chest.
