My sister is pregnant with her fourth child. I never thought she needed a baby shower in the first plac, but she guilted me into promising to throw one for her. Well, this was before I lost my second child(I m/c back in Oct) Last month, she had me go down to her house and clean and scrub it and paint it all while she did nothing. She blew up at me because I took a day off to go visit a friend, and told me I was lazy, disrespectful, and a b*tch. (No, she didn't pay me to do this for her, I did it because she made me feel like crap about having a nice home and her home being dirty) So, I finally blew up right back, and in a REALLY cold voice told her to "Never ask me for help again".
Now, her baby shower is on Mother's Day weekend(I know she did it on purpose so she would have all the attention instead of sharing it with my mom and I) and I don't want to throw it. She uses me and she is insensitive to my pain w/m/c. What do I do

I see nothing wrong with having a shower with EVERY child. Just because they are the second, third or fourth doesn't make them any less special. Granted they probably don't need all the baby items like they did with the first but baby showers that are given after the first baby are about celebrating the pregnancy and expectation of a new family member. With that said..if you don't want to do it then don't.
