Wedding weekend, and feeling sorry for my pregnant self

We have two weddings to attend this weekend, one tonight and one on Sunday morning. For me, part of the pleasure of attending a wedding is the chance to kick back, relax, celebrate, and enjoy life with my husband, sans child. Part of that enjoyment, at least for me, comes from indulging in a few glasses of wine, maybe even a mixed drink. I feel like it's a way for me to celebrate the occasion, and feel like just "Megan" for a few hours, not "Mommy." Of course, I will not be consuming any alcohol this weekend, or at the July wedding we are attending. And, call me selfish if you must, but that disappoints me. I am not an alcoholic, but when i'm not pregnant I do enjoy an alcoholic beverage on occasion. I never drink to the point of excess, especially not when I know I have children to go home to. However, I am a social drinker, and I take pleasure in a chilled glass of wine or two. Now don't get me wrong, I know how blessed I am to be growing this tiny miracle in my body, and I wouldn't trade the experience for anything in the world. I also know that there will be a multitude of occasions after October 8th where I can choose to partake in an alcoholic beverage. But right here and right now, knowing that I will be attending a wedding with nothing more than water in my glass, makes me sad. Hey, blame it on hormones if you have to!
