My Infertility Roots are Showing...

I was perusing the weddings and occasions section of the paper today and came across this article and was totally floored.

Not only at the thought that people actually throw parties to reveal gender but that this couple wants to start planning a "we're pregnant" party so soon after finding out that they are pregnant.

What are your thoughts?


  1. This happens in a world parallel to mine.
    I announced my marriage at work in the out of office reply I put up during my honeyweek. And most of my acquaintances do not know I am pregnant again.

    So for me, this kind of silly parties are erm, a bit more than silly. I hope she does not miscarry and she remains in that frivolous world of announcements by gag-inducing parties.

  2. Jeeze, how much disposable income do these people have that they can afford to throw all these parties for all these people?!

  3. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little. The infertility part of me aside (I hope she doesn't miscarry) the part of me before infertility would still have rolled my eyes. I am generally not a fan of the celebrate everything culture. It just seems so... narcissistic.
