To Invite or Not Invite (Baby Shower Help!)

Mercedes - posted on 02/10/2013 ( 2 moms have responded )




So, I am pregnant with my second son (due May 25, 2013) and I will probably have a baby shower at some point. I have a friend who has a daughter a few months younger than my older son (he is 18/mo) and she found out that she was pregnant with her second child around the same time as I did. We are not close at all, basically facebook friends that "like" each other's stuff occasionally, and we usually invite each other to showers and things like that when they come up, but we never hang out or anything. Still, it was neat that we were both pregnant around the same time again. So, the problem is that she had a miscarriage shortly after we both found out that we were pregnant, and I haven't seen her since then because we just generally don't hang out. She seems to be doing fine on Facebook and everything, but it's not something that you get over quickly, you know? So, do I invite her to my would-be baby shower, or should I skip the invite knowing that she may just spend the entire time in gloom over the fact that we were supposed to be due around the same time? Would it be more mean to invite her, or to not invite her?

I think it is a really nice gesture to extend the invitation and letting her make the choice to attend or not.

I agree with Char Schmitke, it would be nice of you to extend the invitation to her and let her be the judge of weather she can handle being there or not.
