My cousin is pregnant with her first baby, a girl due this spring. Numerous problems have been found such as Trisomy (13? 18? I don't
remember which), cysts on the baby's brain, heart defects...my cousin was told the baby could die at any time. If the baby is born alive, and that's a big IF, she won't live for long.
So my question is...in a situation like hers, would you still have a baby shower? My aunt is throwing her one, and I agree she still deserves it. The baby is still loved and deserves to be celebrated.
My inlaws and another aunt, on the other hand, do NOT agree. What do you think? Would you attend a shower for a baby that you know will die? Would you still buy a great present or do you feel you'd buy less? If you were the mother having a baby that won't make it, would you expect a shower? I know my cousin has registered at a few places.
