Is it selfish of me to be upset that nobody in my family(or my husband's) will throw me a baby shower? This is my 2nd baby but my 1st son and I do have all of the baby equipment(swing, bouncer, crib etc.) from my daughter who is 2 years old, but I have no clothes for my son and still need all the necessary baby items(lotion, baby wash, diapers etc.) for him. My husband was just recently laid off of his job so money is really tight right now and a shower would really help out alot. My husband's brother's wife just had her 3rd daughter(in 4 years) a few months back and my husband's aunt threw her a shower, so I really feel betrayed by them for ignoring that my son will be here really soon(I'm 32 weeks). And I feel it would be rude to ask someone to throw me one. What do you think I should do?
