So I'm kind of getting ahead because the RSVP deadline of H's cousin wedding isn't until July 11th but I just got the invite in the mail and it got me thinking what should I respond?
My EDD is July 20th and I'm a FTM. I know this means I could potentially go later than 40 weeks. I'm also just feeling like I won't even make it to that date though, like a lot of people are saying I just feel DONE. I do feel like she is going to "cook" for another 3ish weeks or so. I'm hoping for a 36.5-38 week gestation after a conversation with my mom that freaked me out that all her kids were preemies by current AAP standards and she wouldn't be surprised if I go into labor in the next few days to weeks O.o. I'm happy last weekend of June to 1st weekend of August. I don't want any NICU time (obviously.)
Anyways. I'm considering RSVPing yes and put a note on it that says essentially "maybe, depending on baby timing." We would like to go but it depends on how old LO is, and really how I handle it. I have no clue if I'm going to be one of those mamas that are completely overwhelmed and can't function for months or one of those miracle people who get it and are fine after a week.
I'd be more comfortable if the RSVP was going back to the bride or her parents. It's going to the mother of the groom though, whom I've never met and I've only met the groom once also.
