Thank You girls What would I do without you all
. I know how bad that feels.
I have seen 14 babies born to close friends and family since we've been TTC. Now, there are four more on the way. One due in July, one in September, one in October, and one in June.
What helps with me, (but then again, I'm an odd person) when buying a baby gift for someone, I just go through and seriously consider what items I like, the price of them, and whether they'd be functional for us. Some how, to me, it kind of takes some of the sadness out if it to treat it as a thrifty business situation. You know, "Well, this item here is extremely cute and priced right, but we'd probably never use it. This one, on the other hand, is a little more expensive, but we'd definitely get good use out of it." That kind of stuff.
You know what else helps? When you go to get a gift for your friend, pick you out a cheap onesie or one on clearance/sale. Buy the silly thing. I don't know where you'll be shopping but places like Wal-mart etc. normally have $3 onesies. Buy one. It won't hurt anything, and when you do get your BFP, there's one item you don't have to run out and buy. You'll be so preoccupied with your adorable little baby item, that shopping for your friend won't be so bad. Try it.
As far as going and seeing her, nothing much helps with that. I love seeing the new babies, but it always makes me end up feeling like crap because I can't have one of my own.
Good luck. I know it's a tough situation, but you'll pull through it for your friend.[/b]
You are right I need to make the best out this situation, what matters is that she had a healthy full term baby, and I'm sure she is going to be happy for me when I do.
