My mom plans on throwing a shower for me (for family and family friends etc., that's how they do it, after baby has arrived) and she wants to throw it on Thanksgiving weekend (in canada thanksgiving is in oct) and I am due Sept 6 and will be induced on or before that depending on what's happening. Anyway, its a 2 hour drive away..I don't know if I will be a vaginal delivery or c section because who knows at this point, anything can happen, so I don't know how I will be recovery wise to go that far and stay over in their house for the weekend.
Should I at least be a little more comfortable by then? My mom doesn't understand excuses etc. and if I said I didnt' feel comfortable to go that far that early, she would be like "please you are so dramatic, you are fine, why are you such a diva etc." She doesn't get that not everyone is a work horse like her at all times. My mom hosted guests and stuff the minute she was home with her babies and cooking/making dessert for them etc. So I know she will think I'm being a wuss or something.
When she came over with my dad to go to dinner when I was 37 weeks she came in and was like how are you feeling and I said "tired" and she was like "STILL????" um I am still pregnant last time i checked and in the last few weeks..what the hell..
