Some of you know I was not able to attend my baby shower because of bed rest. My shower hosts sent me a picture of my shower cake. This made me so sad...

I have not gotten a chance to talk to them since I told them that I was put on bed rest. Last I know shower was getting cancelled... I am wondering why the cake still made it there..

When was the shower supposed to happen? I wonder if the hostess can change the location and some of the activities. That way you can have the shower at your home while you rest either on the couch or in bed. I'm not sure what type of bed rest you're on though.

Impossible.... This shower was planned in PA, USA and I am in QC, Canada. DH and I were supposed to drive down this weekend. All my guests were supposed to be my friends and host family members from the states (I lived in the States for 5 years ). My bed rest is till I am 36 weeks. It will be to risky to take a 7.5 hour trip then. Our new plan is to drive down after our baby is here. I will have a shower here in Canada.. I am very sad that all those people won't see me and my baby belly. I love them all a lot and don't get to see them very often.

That's too bad, Karina!

I know someone else who was on bed rest and couldn't make it to her shower (hospitalization), so they had the shower and did it all over Skype. It was a GREAT idea and she felt like she could attend, even virtually.

Too bad they couldn't do something like that, where the others could have fun too and you could at least see them open your presents for you (and somehow get them to you later?) and you could partake in some of the guessing games, etc...

Looks like a yummy cake!

I'm sorry Karina. Isn't Dawn (sherlockholmes) having an online baby shower? Maybe you could still do something like that -- you could Skype with your American friends. This way, you could celebrate together. They could mail you the gifts and you would wait (totally hard but you could do it!) to open them then. I bet it's not too late to set something like that up.

Just a thought. I'm sorry you couldn't go to your party. (((Hugs)))

So sorry about your shower. Maybe they are going to still get together and save and/or mail all the gifts to you?

:dothu: I'm sorry, Karina! I bet they had ordered the cake ahead, so it was already paid for by the time they went to cancel. I think either an online shower or an after baby celebration would be fun! If you do it after, then all your friends can meet baby I'm sorry, though, that your shower had to be canceled
