My best friend is expecting twins- this is her second pregnancy - she also has a 6 year old (she has leukemia and is in the middle of treatment lots of expenses). I know....I know..... second showers are tacky, etc- but this is how our group of friends does things. (Personally I hate all showers- first, second, etc- I even hated my own)
Here's the tricky part. I have suffered a late loss on Feb 12th (I was 27 weeks). I can barely talk to said friend for a multitude of reasons, not just her pregnancy. I just need a break from her right now. I just don't think when the time comes (it is scheduled for the end of June) that I will be able to handle sitting in a room talking about babies and baby things. Am I being a jerk? Do you think it would be ok if I just sent a gift? I have known this couple for 20 years.
