    I think it depends how good a friend.  If it was a really close friend?  Yes.  More of an acquaintance?  No.

    Sure. Why not? I have never been pregnant, but I’m assuming you can still live.

    @LondonLover:  Is she invited alone or with her husband/partner? I personally would go with my husband and enjoy the alone time (get mom or babysitter to watch the kid overnight) as long as I wasn’t physically uncomfortable about being pregnant (which some people can be at 8 months). I know that my boss has 3 young children (7, 5, and 1) and she has gone to at least 3 weddings this year (including my own) and leaves the children with family or friends overnight to go party with her husband and stay in a nice hotel and have a good time 🙂 At the same time, I wouldn’t blame somebody who is very pregnant and with small children if they said they couldn’t come…but I would be slightly disappointed, hehe

    Edit: And at 2 hours away, you don’t even have to stay overnight, if that makes you uncomfortable!

    I probably would try…but I guess being 8 mo. pregnant with a 2 year old things might come up.  But if she can meet up with you once a month I’m not sure why she couldn’t come to the wedding.  Maybe she has a valid reason though…hard to say without asking her.

    It depends. How good of a friend is she? Does she have disposable income for the trip? Will someone be able to watch her child?

    If you were a good friend, yes.

    I haven’t been pregnant yet, so if this is my first child and I’m almost 8 months pregnant, no way in Hell I’m leaving to go to a loud party!  LOL!  But I’m weird.  She already has another kid, so she’d probably be fine.  It’s probably going to depend more on if she can get the time off work, get a babysitter, afford the expense, etc.

    Having been pregnant, I probably would say no I wouldn’t come. 

    Honestly, I was such a fat cow by 8 months pregnant.. I would have been so uncomfortable all evening, and I wouldn’t have wanted to spend the money on a new dress when I was that size since I would never wear it again, you know? 

    On the other hand, if she isn’t unfpcomfortable in her pregnancy like I was, maybe it would be a fun night out for her and her hubby before the new baby came. 

    I  wouldn’t give it a second thought if she can’t come tho, at 8 months pregnant sometimes you just aren’t up for a night out.
