Hey, ladies! I've lurked on this board a lot. I've seen the rule that baby showers are not like weddings in the sense that you don't invite everyone, which makes perfect sense to me. If you don't mind, give me your opinions on my situation. I have a few cousins and a friend who are very far away and will definitely not be able to come to a baby shower. When they were pregnant, it was the same situation (I live far away, and could not make it, but I sent a gift). I don't want to appear gift grabby, but I'm not sure if I should invite them since they invited me to their shower. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings by not including them when they included me. There were hurt feelings surrounding my wedding and bridal shower. With my pregnancy, I want things to be positive and people to feel included, but not taken advantage of. Does that make sense? Thanks for any thoughts you have!
