Baby Shower Question

The affectionately named "honeymoon trimester". Your belly is getting bigger and you start to feel your first baby kicks. Are you having a boy or a girl?

I think unless your husband is good friends with him or you are inviting more make friends it would be odd to invite him. If it's a women only shower plus your dh a and his buddy I think invite the wife and use other social events to hang out with him. Just my opinion :)

I would say, if there are no other men, I would not invite him. If you really don't know his wife all that well, I wouldnt invite her either. However, I'm not a people person, so I tend to want only close friends/family at these types of things.

Invite both him and his wife. Buying into gender roles and segration of sexes is so a thing of the past. If he is your friend why even consider excluding him from your special day?

This is tricky! I don't think I would invite her without inviting him but as you said, you don't want to invite them as a couple and not let others come as a couple. I agree with Kodak that unless DH knows your guy friend, it might be awkward for him to be in a room with all ladies. The other thought being maybe you can just do a separate get together with them, apart from the shower? Good luck!
