For those of us who do not have other children... what are you doing tomorrow? It doesn't really help that yesterday was my due date. This Mothers Day I'd have had a baby in my arms...

Oh, I'm so sorry. You have the double wammy of due date and mother's day. Let's see, if I were you I would probably hole up with a bottle of wine and just watch funny movies all day. That way I wouldn't run into anyone who might wish me a happy mother's day.<br><br>
I actually have two kids already but I still cancelled mother's day. I still have to give my mom a card and we're having her over for dinner but it's just "Sunday Dinner". I don't know why it bothers me so much, since I do have kids but I just don't want to be reminded that I'm supposed to be pregnant right now.<br><br>
I think after dinner I will still hole up with a bottle of wine and watch funny movies the rest of the day.<br><br>
Whatever you decide to do, I hope the day is not too hard on you.

well, I was just gardening in my front yard and a sweet well-meaning neighbor walked by and asked how my first mother's day was going. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Poor woman. Tears just welled up as I stammered and searched for words. It's so hard to tell people under such awkward circumstances. this is so hard.<br><br>
So.. I think my husband and I are going to try to get out of town for the day and spend the day hiking in the woods. I just need some fresh air and some sun and to not have to talk to anyone today. I'm too emotional and broken-feeling.<br><br>
Sending everyone love and gentle thoughts today.<br><br>
I hope everyone gets to do whatever they need to heal.<br><br>
hugs

Hi Evenstar. Well, I stayed away from Facebook, not wanting to see all of the new mommies wishing each other Happy Mother's Day. DP and I just hung around the house (it was raw and windy here - so much for May weather!). We called our moms this AM and I took a long nap today. I just pretended it was like any other day. Because really, it was. It's so hard. I know. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2">

I went out back and worked in my garden, doing as much damage control on my plants as was possible after the last few days' wind and cold. It felt good to be out there all alone with my thoughts (where no one would catch me if I got teary, which I did a few times) doing what I could to keep my little seedlings alive. There was something therapeutic about caring for baby plants today.<br><br>
Alone with the plants.... that was about all I could handle.<br><br>
