Hi everyone! I never thought I was a "support group" type but my conversations with you all and hearing about your experiences have really helped a lot. So in the past couple of days, by some twisted "fate", I ended up sitting next to a woman at a wedding with 250 guests who is due the same date I was. I couldn't believe it- what are the chances. She was the only pregnant one at the wedding! She was so nice but I tried to steer the conversation away from babies. She mentioned being pregnant and I was just like "Congratulations" and moved onto another topic. Then, I get home from the wedding, and what is in the mail but a Baby Shower invite for a wife's friend who, oddly enough, also has the same due date that I did. I feel bad but I declined the invitation- I just think it would have been way too hard to stay in good spirits at the party. Do any of you have a hard time being with pregnant women who are due when you were? I feel like such a shallow and weak person feeling like this but I just can't help it. It's like I just feel the need to "protect myself" during this difficult time...Any thoughts?

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
