    (well if i didnt ask for the addresses she wouldnt have gotten them already like i did & why is she picking and choosing who is going to get an invite? theres only lik 30 people majority are family and about 5 are friends. she also has to be rude and tell me..

    "its not like everyone is going there probably wont even be half of your list..."

    :( i just feel like hurt? and kind of irritated. im not trying to PLAN my shower, but she told me to make a list so i did. and thats the extent of what im doing.

    maybe i just need to vent. how would you feel or am i just being hormonal and pregnant?

  • I dont think your being rude or hormonal...I think your mom was being a little rude or maybe she has something up her sleeve. Hopefully you will make it to your shower but if not...it can always be a welcome baby home party!

    I am having mine on the 31st of January and I thought I was pushing it with 5 weeks till my due date.

  • Were pretty close.... I'm having my baby shower Jan.17th I'm due Feb. 24 but the doc says i will probably go early. I had my first son premature. Two weeks is a bit late.. Oh and my moms kinda of a slacker when it comes to invites so I always help her with any party . I don't tell my mom that though...... I just tell her I want to help her so no ones feelings get hurt. Congrats and good luck :)

  • Well. If you have the baby before the shower; you can have a meet the baby party with shower presents! It happens to a lot of people! Congrats! Can you call people and invite them yourself..at least your friends...I think she is a little rude...
