My mom and my aunt offered to throw me a shower with all my aunts and cousins (BIG family). (My whole family lives in western New York state while I live in Western Mass near my DH's family.) I had originally said maybe I would make the drive out there but then decided I would rather not to the drive at this point (32 weeks pregnant, uncomfortable, and wanting my own bed). It just seemed like too much to take on. I was worried they'd be bummed out. But instead, I get a call from Mom asking if it would be OK if they threw me a shower in my absence and brought the presents to me!! It is such a wonderful offer, they really understood my situation. So, in August when DH is away on business my mom and two of my aunts are going to drive out here, stay with me a few days, and bring me my baby gifts. I'm so excited!
