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?

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
