I’d somehow separate the guest list so you don’t invite people to 2 showers.  They shouldn’t have to buy you two shower gifts.  So depending on who is throwing the showers, and who they know, divide the list in a way that makes the most sense to you.  There is no cap or minimum on how many people are supposed to be invited to a shower.  I’ve been to showers with 9 people and I’ve been to them with 50.  My basic rule was to invite the women on the list that I actually knew, in some capacity (friend, co-worker, relative, FI’s family).

It sounds like you should invite all the women on FI’s side of the family to the shower being thrown by his mom and godmother.

You can invite all the women on your side of the family and your close friends to the shower being thrown by your sister.

Who is throwing the third shower??

I think that sounds like a better idea, than having 3 showers.  That might be a bit too much for even you.  I’m sure your BM’s won’t mind joining forces.  And it doesn’t sound like you’re being ungrateful, if anything, it sounds like you’re being mindful of the fact that showers cost money to throw, and you’d be saving everyone some money by having them collaborate.
