My mother is already talking about baby showers (ugh) which has gotten me thinking about it. I really don't want my SIL to bring her twins to the shower. It's weird. If I were the one pregnant I don't think I'd mind at all. If I had a belly people would be exclaiming over it and asking how I felt and if the babies are active, etc. But considering I won't have a baby bump I think it won't be hard to turn people's attentions towards her cute little 3 month old twins (at that point) and away from me. And yea, I want the attention, I admit it. I don't get any of the "normal" attention pregnant women get so this one day would be nice.
So I just have to get up the guts to put something like "Adults only" on the invite. I'd really love to not have to write that though. And the odds are that she might not even be able to come, since she lives 3 hours away and would she really drive up with the babies for that amount of time when they're only 3 months old? But I could see her feeling obligated (I know I would). She might think since her mom is also invited (she invited my mom to the shower next weekend so I need to do the same) she can handle one while her mom handles the other. Oh, family.
Speaking of attention, yes, apparently I'm an attention whore. Apparently 4+ years of trying will do that to you. Or at least to me. So I've decided to throw a little gender reveal party at the end of September for me, L and our closest friends. The very closest of friends who think it's just fine to do so (I asked ahead of time) and RSVP'd to my invite within a day. I even invited Gabby after asking if she'd be interested! She did want to be invited but when she got the evite saw the date and isn't sure she can come that day. Oh well, it'll still be fun. Don't worry, I will totally be posting the genders here as soon as I find out. The party isn't until over a week after the gender reveal and I can't tell any of those close friends so I will be busting with the news :)
So I sent everyone an evite, which is so funny because most of them knew the date of the party before I sent it out. But I wanted to do so, it's part of the fun! I used this Punchbowl evite originally meant for a baby shower - just switched the wording to a regular party.
Gabby found both heartbeats tonight again! She said she thinks it's getting easier now that they're both bigger. She mentioned that while both were good heartbeats, one was much louder than the other. Not faltering or uneven or anything, just one was quieter. Do you think I need to worry about that? I already am. I guess it doesn't make sense to think they should both be at the same loudness, but it was enough for her to comment on. I don't know. Paranoid, of course.
