My MIL, who lives three hours from us, graciously offered to host my baby shower. It is scheduled for June 22nd and was to include both sets of families and friends.
The problem is I am having complications (high BP, contractions, being tested for pre-e) and my doctor told me this week that I should not travel. My MIL still wants to have the shower - my family isn't planning to make the drive now since I won't be there (it's an almost four hour drive for them) so now the guest list includes about 15 of my MIL's friends, all people I have never met, along with DH's grandmothers and sister.
I feel like the whole thing should just be cancelled, but my MIL is set on having it. Is that tacky? I did request that as people RSVP she let them know that I will not be there. Part of me thinks that since she planned it all and it's going to be just her friends and some of DH's family there I should just let it go, but I can't get over feeling awkward about it all. Thoughts?
