Quoting March 2013:" It does seem hurtful. Have you talked to your sisters or your mom about how you feel? I had one baby ... [snip!] ... But this is your first Im assuming so you should have one. you could do it yourself if it helped or is that besides the point?"
It is besides the point. My daughter has just about everything she will need. I tired holding out but I was worried that no one would throw me one so I started buying everything I needed myself. She could still use more diapers and diaper wipes. Also she needs a baby swing and a pack-n-play but I think me and her father are going to buy them next Friday. It just I put a lot of effort and thought into every shower I ever threw and now no one cares enough about me to even try it.
