    This is her day and special time. Go along, smile and be her sister.

    It is hard some times with family or friends of our friends that we dont particularly get along with but I personally think its important to show maturity for the sake of our loved ones. You dont need to be besties but a smile, and offer to help.

    I think you should make an appearance for your sister's sake.

    The baby shower host must know you have been invited and they are obviously okay with you being invited into their home, so I think if you reject the invitation based on your dislike for them it'll only cause further friction.

    I can see why your sister is annoyed. It's a pain when people do the whole 'well if she's going, I'm not going'. It puts them in a difficult position.

    Definitely go! Don't be the immature one being a pain because you don't like someone.

    I would be peeved if I had to make special dinner arrangements etc for people who couldn't get along. It's extra stress and planning that a pregnant mummy doesn't need.

    Unless the sister's sister did something really really bad (child abuse, assault etc) I would go. Perhaps offer to bring a plate to help the host out... That might start things off on the right foot.
