    I wouldn't bother going to a baby shower of someone who wasn't my friend. I'd just decline, I don't think you need a reason.

    Default Declining Baby Shower Invite?

    The heavily pregnant as an excuse part I don't get... But the not close to her thing I do. But if she went to mine I'd feel like a jerk not going to hers...

    I don't really buy the 'I'm heavily pregnant so I won't be able to leave the house' thing, I mean most women work until 36 weeks so I'm sure you will be fine.
