Our baby boy is due on our daughters 5th birthday. She was born 3 weeks early due to preeclampsia. I'm hoping things will be different this time and really hoping to avoid induction. So my dilemma is, what do we do for her birthday party, in regards to dates? Our parties aren't huge and just family and friends coming over for treats/presents. I'm tempted to plan the party four weeks early when I'm 36 weeks. But, that's a whole month before her birthday and I don't know if I like that. DH parents will fly into town when baby boy is born and it'd be nice to have them here for her party as well, but do I want to host a party when I'm possibly right at the end of pregnancy or have a few day old baby? I'm also planning on nursing (didn't nurse dd) and the thought of trying to figure out nursing still with a house full of party guests intimidates me.
On the other hand, I have a few cousins/aunts/uncles that it would be nice to have them all meet baby together instead of them all coming at separate times. It's so hard not knowing when baby will actually be here! Maybe I'm overthinking? If it were you, what would you do? Thoughts?
