A group of friends on DH's side have offered to host a meet the baby party in his hometown.They approached MIL a few days ago about doing a shower, it is our first child and we will be 33 weeks tomorrow. MIL explained that I can't travel past 34 weeks (his hometown is 6 hours away), so they suggested something after baby arrives.
I am on board for this my only concern is timing. DH is in the military and deploys a few months at a time. He will be deploying again right before baby is 2 months old and he will be gone for two months. Would it be wrong to wait until DH returns and baby is 4 months old? My concern with doing it before baby is 2 months is that the baby won't be vaccinated and people will want to hold her (which is kind of the point of a sip and see). What do you think?
I am thankful so many people want to share in welcoming baby and I am gracious for the friends for offering to host.
