Quoting can111:" My mom is inviting 45 people, that's mostly my family with a little bit of SO's family. His family isn't ... [snip!] ... whatever, I'm just happy some of his family is supportive and our child will have nothing to do with that side of his family."
I feel you. My husband's family, NONE of them will be at the shower. His brother is too stuck up, his dad doesn't do baby showers and stuff, he won't let me invite his mom because of the fact that.....well, he doesn't even talk to her. So, it is all my family and some friends. Most of his family doesn't even care that we're having a baby! Which is sad....But my son will have ALL the love and support he needs, no doubt. He won't be missing out, they will.
