Baby Shower

Awhile back we had been invited to one of Sarah's old time friends baby shower. At first, I was super excited I had imagined myself pregnant at the baby shower after all we had been invited before we had even started our IVF treatment. I had forgotten about the baby shower until a couple of weeks later when I was going through my "junk drawer" (because we all know everyone has one) and noticed the invitation. It was soooo cute laced in pink my heart sank. It brought back memories of how we were not pregnant yet. I know its been more than two months since our failed IVF cycle but it still sometimes seems so fresh in my brain, so fresh in our brains.

We RSVP and before you knew it we were shopping for a baby gift at Babies "R" Us. The last time we had stepped foot in that store was when we had first started our TTC journey. We wanted to go and look at all the baby stuff, not knowing anything we would soon face. Not knowing that in fact the TTC is not as easy as we thought it would be. I entered the store and all at once I felt excitement, joy, happiness, sadness and loneliness. I wanted to buy everything in sight, I pictured us registering for our showers and what crib we would pick. We both stood between the strollers and car seats and hugged each other. We didn't even have to speak to each other we knew exactly what was being thought. We know our time will come and when that time comes that baby or babies will be the best thing to ever happen to us, our blessings.

The baby shower was beautiful filled great food and fun games and beautiful decorations!! There were so many personal touches it was just beautiful and the creative me just loves that about a party!

The basket I made was a hit along with the swing we purchased. I love parties and I love wrapping gifts. Call me crazy but I guess it's a stress reliever for me. Sarah laughs but shes grateful she doesn't have to worry about it, lol!


The games were awesome! I love baby shower games they are always so much fun. We both know that we are both very competitive people so I told Sarah that I will win a prize! I just have to, LOL!


I won! LOL! 

And the prize you ask?!

OK, so I was SUPER excited to have won this gift!! Reason being was that is a microwaveable heating pad. Not only is it super cute, but its a heating pad! I remember that after my egg retrieval I was in lots of pain and I complained because I didn't have a heating pad. Well guess what!? I got one now!! Is this a sign or what?!

On top of this being a sign, a wonderful lady came up to us and started talking about how she has abilities to see the future. She commented on the fact that we are TTC and that we are going to have a boy. I have a hard time believing people like this but I know Sarah does. I was just happy that she sees a baby in the future.

Well were off to bed!

God I cried when I read this.

We had such a similar experience. Our best friends actually put off trying to conceive their 2nd child so that we could time to when my Dh had his vasectomy reversal surgery. All four of us were so naive about IF then....

Fast forward to now and their son is 4 months old. We just found out we're pregnant so it's been over a year of baby showers, visits, shopping for baby gear and all of that. But every time I look at thier son, whom I adore, I think of all the time that went by.

Oh and that heating pad.....

Very awesome.

sarah said...

glad i found your blog. we are planning on trying in a couple of months, and i'm so very nervous about the whole thing. look forward to reading more.


Lexi + Sarah said...

Expectingtobeexpecting; I couldn't agree with you more. We were totally naive about the how fertility thing. I mean we really thought it was a quick bam, bam and your pregnant! I laugh thinking back to when we first started! One thing I know for sure is this entire process has made us both stronger and we have grown from these experiences.

Sarah; Glad our blog could be of some use. I know when I first started to look for other blogs I was frustrated at the lack of blogs. Little by little I have come across some awesome blogs! Good luck to you and if you ever need a shoulder to lean on I am here for you!

Mina said...
