That is seriously sucky!!! Why don’t your friends let you talk about being pregnant???? Do you have any sisters/aunts/or in-laws who would want to throw you a shower?

@TheFutureMcBride: Do people know that you want one? Maybe they think that you wouldn’t want one because of what happened with Moose…they might be trying to walk on eggshells around the whole thing, you know? Or they might be feeling scared/nervous themselves. Do you feel comfortable talking to one of your friends about the fact that you do want a baby shower?

What about your family throwing you a shower instead of friends? I’m sorry they aren’t throwing you one!

PS I love me some cakewrecks!

Obviously I don’t know your family or friends, but if I had a friend/family member in your position I would be iffy about throwing a shower.  I would be soo afraid of pouring salt on a wound and doing something to hurt or offend you.  Having said that, I would not plan a surprise but would ASK YOU (or your husband) how you feel about it.

that is junk.  I want to throw you a shower!  And I think your family and friends ar ebeing selfish by not allowing you the opportunity to talk about Wombat and celebrate him or her.  EVERYONE deserves to be excited about the arrival of a baby

Oops!  WB cut off my post.  I said at the end that in all seriousness, I hope your friends get with the program and throw you the awesome baby shower that you deserve!

Are your friends parents? I know that as a childless couple with only a few of our friends having kids, I don’t understand the ins and outs of celebrating children. It wouldn’t occur to me to throw my friends a baby shower because I’d assume they had someone else doing it. Or maybe your friends that ARE parents and would know what to do don’t understand how to identify with you after Moose and they’re scared to make the wrong move?

Of course you deserve the party, just might have to approach making it happen differently because of your circumstances :(.

You’re 30 weeks pregnant, you NEED pampering.  Your friends and family need to get on the ball.  They’re probably a bit unsure of what to do so don’t be subtle.

@TheFutureMcBride: Ah ok, so you’ve made it clear that you do want one…in that case, boo, they suck! Maybe they’re planning something and don’t want to tell you yet? I would definitely be getting on my husband’s case about it, lol–if nothing else, he should definitely be able to either rally the women together to plan something, or plan something himself.
