@alcrimmins The earliest I could do my shower for her was April 29th. I kind of wanted to do it earlier so I was still comfortable and nice and mobile and could really enjoy it. And I wanted some time to be able to buy all the stuff we still need after the shower (we're waiting until after so we don't end up with doubles/extras) I didn't even realize that most people wait until so late to do it. I'll be 30 weeks by the 29th anyways.
I had a different kind of WTF moment last night but mostly because I was caught off-guard.I was wearing an empire-waisted dress yesterday. I always look kind of preggers in it, which is why I don't usually wear it. When I got home, MIL goes, "Ohhh! I can see your belly. Can I touch?" And she hovers her hand right above my stomach and waits for me to answer.I was NOT prepared. I had read about people asking to touch your belly so I should not have been surprised. Except I was. And I just sort of babbled out, "Umm ok, but I'd rather you didn't. Is this a thing?"It didn't actually bother me, I was just really surprised and definitely had the WTF face as it happened. I actually felt bad afterward that I was such an awkward turtle about it.
@Rae1 I agree with close family. Especially if you have a close bond, it's not as strange. I think I had mentioned why it was weird to me in another post, but being so short I feel violated because it's not a huge jump to my chest or pelvic region so I immediately feel violated lol. I probably need to get over it considering I have over 22 more weeks to go and a larger belly on the way. I'm hoping as it becomes more baby it'll feel less like my personal space.
I can't fucking deal with my SIL and ever since finding out she is KU, every time I talk to her, it's all about her. I just texted her today to see how she's feeling since her first tri has been miserable. But, do you think she could even, just to be polite, ask how I'm doing?...NOPE. The same shit happened when we were wedding planning and I ended up stopping all communication with her. Guess it's time to cut the cord again. UGH.
@LoveLee85 sorry you're sick. The Noro is strong this year. Feel better.
Why do people insist on touching bellies this early? I get that once you can feel consistent movement from the outside, it could be fun for a family member of close friend but right you're just putting your hand on the tacos I had for lunch!
All this shower talk is making me worried that we're planning mine too late! We're looking at June 3rd and I'm due July 24th. I also worry about the planning. My mom is great and already has a pinterest board all about it, but we agreed to have one big shower (and I mean big, my IL side is huge) but I know my MIL will do minimal to help even with having at least 2/3 of the invitees. I warned my mom and she seems ok with it, I just need her to expect it.
