I am 39 weeks prego with my 2nd and my oldest is 7 years. My Sis-in-law is prego and due in November. It was just announced that my MIL is throwing sis-in-law a baby shower appx 1 month before her baby is due (invites went out this week for a shower in October) All my immediate family is 9 hours away so they had a baby shower for me when I brought 1st baby back to my family's home (in laws weren't invited due to distance). I am assuming that I won't get one here from my MIL...I don't want to be pissed but I am really hurt and upset that I would be treated so differently than my sis-in-law and I am trying not to let this consume me but I'm having a hard time letting it go. Why would she send out invites with me due in a week? Why not at least wait until after? It makes me not want my MIL around after the baby is born as it's not about the stuff you get, but more so that I've been "brushed" aside as if I don't mean anything to this family because I really thought that we had a decent relationship, but obviously not!!
