My baby shower was everything I wanted it to be –
– Relaxed and intimate: filled with the love of my son, closest family and friends
– Pretty: I was getting into the groove of this girly thing
– NOT a surprise: surprises are a control freaks worst nightmare.
It was held 6 weeks before my due date, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise because I landed up in hospital 4 days later with early contractions (at 32 weeks). Fortunately, my gyane was able to stop them, but after that I had to rest as much as possible.
I got everything I wanted and more!! It was organized by my sister, Nomhle and one of my closest friends, Sazi (in the pic below). I tried to slip in a few hints by sending them pictures of what I had in mind, but was asked to let go and just enjoy the day. The ladies didn’t let me down because everything about the day was perfectly planned and rolled out.
