The Unshower Shower

Posted on: November 25, 2014

When we found out we were pregnant, I contemplated whether or not we were going to have a baby shower.

This is my second child.  We have all the big ticket baby items, stroller, playpen, carseat, high chair.. etc.

We didn’t NEED anything new.

However, most of the other smaller items we have are for a girl.  If we were going to have a boy, we’d have to get a lot of new things in “boy.”

But then, we found out we were having a girl again, so I figured we didn’t need a shower at all anymore.

As the pregnancy progressed, we hit one scare after another.  From the bleed that left us with a 50/50 chance of miscarriage, to the bedrest and daily progesterone due to a suddenly shrinking cervix…

I felt compelled to celebrate the pregnancy and this new little one.

So, I agreed to an “unshower shower.”

It’s not a shower.  It’s a celebration.  It’s a celebration that the pregnancy has lasted this long and that despite the hardships, the baby has been completed unaffected.  By the grace of God, she’s been growing at a normal pace, and she moves around like she doesn’t have a care in the world.

I didn’t register anywhere and am not obligating anyone to get me a gift or diapers or anything.

I just want us to all get together to celebrate this pregnancy and all the hardships we’ve gone through during this journey.
