Quoting Mommeh2bee:" You know I didn't have a whole lot of my friends come to my baby shower either. But I had all my family ... [snip!] ... like that are kind of obvious hurts for sure!!! My cousin did that too me for mine, yes it hurt. And her excuse was also bs."Talking with my DH about it at the moment and he basically said the same thing, "you find out who your friends are". I mean, I understand the legit ones, like one of my cousin's is having surgery the day before. THAT is understandable. Not because they just don't feel it's important. Makes me feel like I wasted a lot of time investing in my relationships with some of them.
Quoting julybabe:" i had that prob with my dds baby shower. so when i found out that someone was planning one for me this ... [snip!] ... planning one for me this time i told them i wasnt coming lol. the first one most ppl didnt even bring the baby anything ither."lol I felt like that after 4 friends told me they weren't coming. That's a shame though.
Quoting 💙Jenny&Boopy:" I'm sorry a lot of my friends are useless for plans. Only one came to my shower, a few said yes but ... [snip!] ... about not seeing people though, I didn't care about the gifts. It sucks when you support people and they can't do it in return."

Quoting Momma +2 Girls:" i had 4 showers total between my two girls (3 for the first.. family was fighting and being childish) ... [snip!] ... (and bullsmurf) but just remember this shower the next time they invite you somewhere or the next time you plan a party."Definitely! I think I've made a mental note and list already. lol
Quoting I'm His Amy He's My Rory:" Who cares if someone didn't bring you a gift. They still came to show support and celebrate your child. Greedy much? A baby shower isn't a requirement, nor are gifts."
Quoting Cameron and cayleighs mom:" 2 people showed up to mine, and they along with 2 out of the 3 hosts were 2 hours late and the 2 hosts ... [snip!] ... if they forgot etc etc etc the party was poorly planned, so it wasn't my friends/family's fault, but it still hurts either way."
