I am 27 weeks pregnant, 2nd child and have been separated for 3 weeks (no chance of reconciliation). I wasn't going to have a baby shower. I didn't with my first and I have never been one to be the centre of attention. But....given the separation and the fact that I feel I haven't focused at all on this new baby due to a broken heart, I am suddenly feeling like I would like to pre-celebrate/honour her in some way. I would like to invite my gf's for an afternoon of silliness and a glass or two of bubbly and to make a memento book for my dd to have. She is not going to have her dad at her birth like my ds did and I would like something special for her in case later in life she feels 'ripped off'. What do you think? Is this a hormonal trip or do you think this is a good idea? Anyone else been in this position and done this? I would love some feedback!
