Not sure how to address this situation...I know that hubby's family will want to throw me a baby shower (like they did bridal shower) whether it's his mom/sister(s)/sister-in-law or whomever. BUT I know that I want an early one for several reasons. They are 3 hours away and it'll be thrown there since that's where everyone lives (family/cousins/aunts/etc). I'm due in early April, I have a demanding job and am in graduate school and am high risk so I could deliver early. I'm off in December/January for work and graduate school so I thought mid January would be good.
BUT how do I bring this up if no one has yet offered? My bridal shower was 1 month before the wedding (which was very stressful since I teach) and sister in law was pregnant last year and it was thrown 3 weeks before her due date.
That's just not doable and extremely stressful to me....
Do I just have to wait until someone on his side brings it up....or can I nicely mention to someone "if there's going to be a shower, then x date would be good"? Maybe hubby can mention to his mom (in case anyone asks her)
Oh and my best friend has offered to throw a shower in our/my hometown (but that'll be for my immediate fam/close friends here, DH's side will want to throw one in their town since they're 3 hours away. Plus that's A LOT of people for my gf to host since his family is huge)
