    I ended up standing my ground for my baby shower as my mum was getting out of hand not doing anything to benefit me but all for her. It caused a bit of tears at first but now it seems to be going fairly smoothly so all I can say is stand your ground. It's your day and you shouldn't have to stress about it.

    I did this (my cousin is helping me plan instead of my mum because my mum didnt like how I wanted it).

    Do you really want your hubby to come? If yes, then you can probably find a way to make it work by just talking to him and the two of you coming to some sort of agreement. That way at least you're both on the same page in dealing with his sister. If you don't really want him to come, then tell him and the sister no, and they can go and do their own thing together if they want. This is your shower. Be honest. Otherwise you'll end up having a lousy day with people and activities you didn't want.

    My thoughts exactly.

    This is why I didn't end up organising a proper baby shower. Too many people who would expect an invite that I didn't want to be there and too much drama trying to accommodate everyone else's wants.
    Instead, I am having lunch with a few close friends (and partners) and that's it. Nothing big, we're not even calling it a baby shower. It will be a nice opportunity for us to celebrate the next stage of our lives with those who mean the most to us, without all the drama (and stupid games :P ).
    Later on I will probably have a girls day out with my mum and sister.
