Wondering what everyone here is doing?? I am preggo with my 2nd child dd is 7 and I am overwhelmed by everything that is going on with this pregnancy. I never had a shower with my first child tho I really wanted one becuz I didn't have Anyone to give me one . Seems I am in same boat again and it is really upsetting me . Maybe its silly but I feel like every mom should have that joy and honor at least once and I'm bummed by the idea that once again it may not happen for me. About 9 mos ago I "broke up" with lifelong bff permanently and even tho it needed to be done I can't help but to miss her a lot now becuz she would have been the godmother, auntie and 2nd mom to this baby. Before anyone asks its irreparable unfortunately. Not only that but I kno she would also have been the one to grab the bull by horns and give me a wonderful shower. I do have other friends but idk the etiquette around asking someone to throw me a shower and frankly the thot of having to do that just makes me sadder. I am not close to my mother so she is out and my MIL lives in another state. DP is not speaking to SIL and she is only other person who would have done this on her own without prompting or needing to be asked. There is so much negative going with this pregnancy that I just want something good and fun to look forward to. Sorry for the downer post, I'm just so bummed right now by so many things I thot i would reach out for ideas.
