I guess I am writing this because I am a little bummed out. None of my friends can make it to my baby shower this weekend. I know they have lives and other things to do but I have been so disconnected lately.
background: dd is 7 weeks old now, and between me and her we have spent a lot of time in and out of the hospital so the shower was put off several times when conditions suddenly went south, some of them even took time off work for the original dates and I feel really bad about that and I don’t want them to feel guilty about this(they have said they feel bad).
everyone has been so amazing with everything that’s been going on that I feel like I should do something to make it up to them. Does anyone have an suggestions, money is tight right now but i am pretty crafty.

Sassy9226: I’m sorry no one is able to make it to your shower! I’m sure your friends feel badly about it, but unfortunately, that’s just life sometimes. I’m sure they will all want to celebrate the birth of DD with you individually, if they haven’t already.
With a new baby, I think you are off the hook with doing anything big (either time, effort, or money) for them. For anyone who’s been extra helpful, a nice, handwritten note would be appreciated.

I’m sure your friends feel really bad, as you say sometimes life does just get busy and if some of them had to take time off work the first time they might not be able to do it again. I know that it’s not always that easy to take time off from my work at short notice.
I don’t think it’s necessary for you to make or buy anything for them, but like the previous poster said just a nice email or note would probably be appreciated.
Hope you and your daughter are now doing well, sounds like the first few weeks were a bit stressful!
