Baby Sprinkle

Baby Sprinkle

I’m not 100% sure how I feel about it, but my sister is coming into town this weekend to host a baby sprinkle for me. I am excited about having her come into town and celebrate this baby (which I have done so very little of), but at the same time I’m still a little bit cautious with my celebrations. I definitely don’t want to jinx myself by celebrating before this baby is firmly in my arms (hooray, I’m realizing I can now add paranoia to my long list of issues with this pregnancy). Plus, since this is my second baby . . . I feel a little guilty about asking people for gifts when I already have so much stuff to reuse.


I’m sure everything will be fine and maybe for an hour or two I can just forget about all of the unknowns and whatifs and just enjoy being pregnant. I mean, at this point I don’t have a choice. The invites have been sent and the cake has been ordered. I guess I better go clean!

  1. My friend wanted to organize a baby shower for me…I told her I couldn’t possibly have one! She was sad…but I would like a baby welcome party instead!!! Always before infertility I’ve never been comfortable with baby showers because it feels like a jinx! OK so everyone I know has never been jinxed after their baby shower, it’s just a strange concept to me!!! I love the idea of celebrating being pregnant but the act of gift giving for a baby yet to be born is weird – especially as ultrasounds can be wrong on the gender!
    Having said all of that they are fun when it comes to that moment being with your friends all together and having a good girlie day. So I hope that is what happens for you and your anxieties disappear!! X

    1. Yes! I definitely feel a little weird about this baby shower, especially since we’ve had such a hard time getting to this point in the pregnancy. A baby welcoming party sounds a whole lot smarter! Thank you for your warm wishes on the sprinkle day. Hopefully it’ll be low-key, stress-free day 🙂
