Okay,... so we were trying for over a year with fertility treatment to have baby #4 and we didn't conceive. We decided to stop trying and were quite sad yet so thankful for the 3 beautiful munchkins we already have. We came to acceptance of not having a fourth child. I donated all our beautiful baby stuff away.
2 months later - SURPRISE!!!
And a wonderful surprise it was too. We are just so thrilled and it all happened naturally which is a miracle all in itself.
I can't see myself buying all the brand new items again. Baby stuff is so crazy expensive! I would probably get some gently used things to replace the big stuff and I was hoping to get other peoples thoughts on baby showers:
My family had a big baby shower for me with my first pregnancy which was for the twins but not for the next baby which was perfectly fine as we had everything but now LOL,... we haven't got so much as a onesie or a receiving blanket let alone,... an infant carrier, swing etc etc...
What do you think others would think if I had a shower even though I'm on baby #4. I am a bit fearful because I think people would naturally assume I MUST have everything I need and I would hate to appear greedy and or needy. Perhaps mostly I want to respect the boundaries of etiquette. What do you think?
