It's bad enough to get an invitation to a baby shower. It's even worse when it is clear that the invite is solely a grab for a gift. And even worse that it is from someone who herself had some IF issues. I just can't believe how rude that is!
I don't know much about DH's cousin's IF. All I know is that they got married a few years before us and when my MIL told us she was pregnant, she mentioned they had tried to get pregnant for a couple years, did some IF treatment, and then gave up and a few months later got pregnant. I don't know if my MIL has told her sister about our IF struggles. Or if this news has traveled on down to the cousin.
But the problem is I don't even know the cousin! We met once, at the funeral of DH's grandmother, where I had to rush out because it happened to be the weekend we were moving across the country and I had to meet the moving truck. So imagine my surprise when I open the mail and see a baby shower invite. To a shower 4 states away for a person I met once briefly. WTH? Who does that? Can you make it any more obvious that you want lots of gifts?
