I have two baby showers being thrown for me. One is close to mine and my parents' home and about 50 people were invited. The second is close to my fiancé's family's home which is 2 hours away from our place and about 40 people were invited to that one. Between the two parties, I've only recieved about 20 responses (not just to attend, that's total responses both yes and no). The first shower is this Sunday and the second one is the following Saturday, so I doubt more people will respond. I'm getting nervous about A) how many people to plan for with food and drinks, and the fact that we were really heavily relying on cashing in on a lot of gifts from the shower because we've been struggling so much with our finances (due to both of our stupid cars almost dying on us at basically the exact same time and costing each of us thousands of dollars, which is everything we had saved for baby...perfect effing timing). What in the world do I do? I've posted on Facebook twice now with a friendly reminder to RSVP so we can plan the food accordingly, but I'm not getting anymore responses. I've checked our registries to see if anything is being purchased and maybe people just suck at replying, but nothing has been taken off of either one. I don't know what to do if we don't even get cash or gift cards because we are dead broke and have NOTHING for this baby right now. Not even a crib or anything. I feel like I'm going to lose it. I can't stand the thought of not being able to provide even just the essentials for our child, but I think I have to face the fact that that might just be the case. What do I do?!
