Have you been to any since your losses? Have you blown any off?

I haven't gone to any since my TTC experience. Too painful.

I stopped going for 7yrs. It was just too painful. The 1st one I went to after such a long time was my own. Now I'm okay with them. I guess it was too much of a reminder of what I couldn't have. I lost a few friends as a result but if they never understood they weren't true friends to begin with.

I don't go to them, and I wouldn't allow them for either one of my rainbow babies, doubt I will with this one. My oldest Makenzie was born still two days after my baby shower, so I kind of have a stigma with it.

I used to have a really, really hard time going to them. I didn't go to any after my first loss until my BF got pregnant when our husbands were deployed. I knew she needed me, so I went to every doctor's appointment with her, was her birthing coach, and threw (and attended of course) her baby shower. I found a lot of healing through her pregnancy.

No I haven't...My niece had a baby shower just 2 days after Ella was born...It was very hard for me knowing that all my family was celebrating the birth of her baby, when i was grieving the loss of mine...I haven't been to a shower since, and I honestly probably will NOT go to another shower...It's too hard, and I have a hard time being happy for other people when i'm so sad about my pregnancy losses.
