My hens night is coming up next weekend, the plan is to go out for dinner at a popular theatre dinner and show place at the coast where we will be staying for the night (same hotel room)
Im very excited!! My dilemma is, One of my very good friends just had a baby (he is adorable!) and the other is around 20 weeks pregnant. I am very happy for both of them don’t get me wrong but im concerned that the hens weekend will turn into a sort of mothers group that I wont be included in. The party is quite small, the two friends mentioned and my two sisters who both have small children. And both these friends do have tendencies to turn everything to be about them.
I in no way want a baby ban or anything similar but don’t want to feel like an oddball at my hens celebration.
Being drunk isn’t an option as we moved away from any clubbing type thing due to friend being pregnant (which im perfectly okay with, I hate the taste of alcohol anyway)

Eh this is a tough one… invite more “non-moms” maybe??? I am not sure- good luck! Sorry I couldn’t be more help.

@Pokemon: I don’t really have any advice but are you going to Draculas?? Best place ever. I’ve only been once but I don’t think it’s the type of place to sit around chatting about your babies.
One of my two bridesmaids was pregnant on my hens night and we still went clubbing, she just didn’t drink and went home a little early, it was a shame but we are going to have a night out once she’s had the baby to make up for it.
Hopefully if it does start to go in that direction you can just change the subject and make it all about YOU YOU YOU, you only get one hens night and hopefully they understand that and are super accommodating to you.
I hope you have an awesome weekend, the weather has been amazing too so hopefully it stays that way, i’ll be thinking of you 🙂

It never bothers me when people bring their kids or talk about them. Most people who are important in my life already have kids or are actively trying. We have moved away from doing activities that are not kid friendly so I don’t see it as a big deal. Is the baby coming or is her husband watching him? Either way I am sure it will be fun.
