    Oh geez I hate hate hate baby showers, tupperware parties, hen parties Unless its one of my close friends I flat out refuse to go. And all my friends know this...

    I would tell your friend how you feel and see what she says, i think if she really wants your support she would be happy to put both your names on the card.

    And then start letting your friends know how much you hate these occasions lol

    In your situation, all things would point to me not going...

    However if I did go to support a friend, I'd ask if I could kick in $10 to her present and get my name on the card. Easy!

    I also detest these things! They r purely for the presents. I don't believe in celebrating anything before it occurs. In this situation I probably wouldn't attend as she isn't a close friend. If she was I would buy something small for her not baby as I think it's bad luck to receive gifts before it arrives.

    I wouldn't go if I didn't know her but if you do, take a present for the mum, not the baby if she's already had one. Some massage oil or something like that.

    Totally agree. I would tell my friend i can no longer attend, thank her for the invite and go about my own business. It can be tricky when you feel guilted into doing something you aren't entirely comfortable with.

    On the other hand, you could take the leap and go, you might meet some new people and have a good time. Sometimes just getting out of our comfort zones can make for a fun time.
