So I never expected a baby shower the second time around. However, I find now that my feelings are quite hurt because I didn't get one. It wouldn't have mattered except that the other girl that shares my due date and works in a different department got not one but two showers at work.
But then I told myself that it's because she's having a boy. Different gender. And then my husband's co-workers through him a shower. And now I just feel hurt and left out. I suppose it would be different if I had been working here when Ethan was born, but I wasn't. This is my first pregnancy here.
It just seems a little mean that the women I work with didn't think of me. And then I thought, well maybe they just haven't done it yet. I'm due in less than 2 weeks. They want to take out a damn pool on when I'll have the baby, so they should know time is running out. No one has a shower this late.
Am I silly for feeling hurt by this?
