Hi! : )
I'm just seeking opinions on etiquette mostly.. I'm expecting our second child. DS is nearly 7. We are having a little girl this time and to top it off we got rid of almost all our baby stuff a while ago thinking we were done.
My mum and SIL are busy planning my SIL and brothers wedding.. they have enough going on and i don't want to ask them. The wedding is on the same day as my EDD.
My two best girlfriends don't live in Aus atm and won't be around till after the birth. So my question is.. Would you find it rude or odd if I threw my own baby shower?
I had initially thought I wouldn't worry about it and just have a little get together after bubs is here. But as I get closer.. I'm starting to feel a bit bummed that this pregnancy hasn't really been celebrated much.
We had alot of complications early on and seemed to be treading on egg shells so there wasn't all that joy and excitement you would expect when we announced we were pregnant. Mostly everyone was just crossing their fingers it would all work out. I suppose I'm feeling like having a shower might be a way to get some of that fun and anticipation back a little and also share this pregnancy with friends and family I haven't seen much of lately.
Would you feel put off by an invite if I organised my own shower? Would it seem like I'm just scrounging for presents or being greedy?
