There is always the fear of receiving a baby shower invite but I feel like other people’s pregnancies can be a minefield lately with gender reveal parties. How many parties can a poor infertile have to avoid? Then I read this article and I feel sad for any infertile that gets invited to a party like this.
People are having ultrasound parties. They pay for an ultrasound technician come in and give an ultrasound while your family and friends sit around and watch. I’m sorry. As an infertile, the thought of being invited to such a party gives me a sick feeling in my stomach. Even as a fertile person, who would want to go to something like this? I can’t imagine how awkward it would be to sit around someone’s living room and watch their ultrasound. Aren’t ultrasounds one of those things that only parents really enjoy watching, like a dance recital. You only go if your kid is in it. You wouldn’t enjoy it if your kid wasn’t there.
I just don’t understand who the women are that do this.
