Haidee's Virtual Baby Shower - UPDATE

This is a reminder to RSVP to this event by tonight! The blog links to Haidee's Virtual Baby Shower will be up around Thursday, 19th May (AEST).
Please also let me know if you can no longer participate by comment or email.
Thank you!
My Super Special virtual friend Haidee from Maybe Baby... (or Maybe the Loony Bin?) is expecting her first child in July. A fellow IFer who experienced 3 years of infertility and 3 cycles of IVF will finally welcome her son. I have known Haidee now for a few years after we met in cyberspace on a baby and trying to conceive forum.  I was already a veteran at trying to conceive, in fact I only joined the forum when all of my failed assisted conception treatments were over and done with and I had gone on a break and was trying naturally again with the help of Chinese herbs. She was beginning her journey. Haidee was one of a few wonderful women who made the effort on a regular basis to reply to my comments or questions and always kept in touch with advice and support, even after I graduated to motherhood. She truly is a compassionate, supportive and caring person and most especially a beautiful friend.

I also know that she has touched many other women during their own IF journey.

I can't wait to meet you In Real Life Haidee.

I am proud and honoured to host her Virtual Baby Shower. Please show your support for this amazing person and also participate in this Virtual Baby Shower.

1. Please leave a comment on this blog post OR email me at:  and let me know that you are participating/RSVPing to the event. You have till the 16th May (AEST) to let me know. Provide your blog link and any questions you may have.

2. As this is Virtual, all you need to do is pick a gift(s). On the 19th May (AEST) put up a blog post that is dedicated to Haidee's Baby Shower. Your gift could be anything. A photo of baby clothes, a poem, a recipe/picture of your favourite sweet, a picture of a cigar for her husband. Anything creative or unique. Remember as this is "Virtual" there is no budget limit.

3. On the 19th May (AEST) I will provide all your blog links on my blog. This will allow Haidee to link to your blog posts and "receive" her gifts.  Please also take the time to visit these blogs yourself and have a gander at what everyone else has given.

If you do not have a blog, I am happy to host it for you along with mine. Please let me know.

Looking forward to hosting this for a very special friend. Please make the effort to participate as it's also an opportunity to network and follow other bloggers.

Thank you!
