I understand what that feels like. With my first, I had the exact same thing. Now that I'm on my second baby, I'm dealing with it all over again. Because there were already kids on both DH and my side, we got hand-me-downs from everyone in boxes, and the baby shower got bypassed completely. Even though my second is supposed to be the first boy on both sides, I'm still not getting a shower... Guess the baby is going to be wearing pink for a while. wink1.gif


It's not selfish to want a baby shower. I too would love to be pampered-- maybe have a day away from DD... Or even a few hours... I can dream.

kblackstone444 - I don't think you should consider yourself out of time to find a student doula to be with you. A student doula might really enjoy the instant gratification of signing on with a mom so late actually! I hope you decide to make a few calls and see if you can find someone. Perhaps posting in your tribal area might get you a lead or two....

I wish I could get my hands on a pregnancy suit so that my hubby could get the experience a tiny bit! Not pregnant, getting up off the floor or couch isn't a big deal but it's a whole other story pregnant...
