When I first found out I was pregnant with my first I was really excited about eventually having a baby shower, but now that I’m 26 weeks not sure if I want one anymore due to recent events. My dad was recently hospitalized and my sister (who had previously offered to host) and I are in the process of getting him moved into an assisted living facility and selling his current house which is going to take up a good chunk of time. I know my sister is already super stressed and frazzled with getting everything in order for my dad (she has been doing the vast majority of work) and she already has a ton on her plate as a mom to a 2.5 and 4.5-year old.
My hubby and I both make good money so we don’t need help buying things, especially since I’m already getting a ton of hand-me-down stuff from my sister, and I’ve been scoring good second-hand deals on Facebook marketplace. I’m a little sad because we are only having one child and it would have been fun to have an excuse to have a party with friends, but it just seems way too daunting right now.
Did any of you ladies skip a baby shower for your first?
