Yesterday my husand and I got into an argument about a baby shower. His friend's wife invited me to her babyshower. She lives four hours away in a different state. I only see and talk to her once a year. I have decided not to go to the shower because I just don't think I can take it and it's around the same time I will be doing IUI. My husband is supportive of me not going to the shower but then tells me he wants to go and hang out with his friend the day of the babyshower. He said that he understands it's hard for me but it's different for him and it won't bother him to hang out with friend during his wife's shower. I got upset that he wants to go on that particular weekend. I feel like it makes me look bad-like he could go but I couldn't. I feel like by him going without me, infertility is only my issue instead of our issue. I understand he wants to be there for his friend but at the same time I thought why can't he go a different weekend instead of the weekend of the baby shower. Has this situation happened to anyone else? Am I being totally selfish? Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated.
