You can have an appointment earlier to your doctor maybe you will be finish there after the celebration started. Or you can go there at your free time it is better late than never.

if you really can't make it then maybe you could come a day before or after. What is important is that you really care for him and are not taking for granted special occasions like this. It's circumstances that had prevented you from attending his party.

I would try to see him either Thursday or Friday before your appointment. I am sure he will be happy to see your regardless. A one year old doesn't really understand birthday parties. They mostly look overwhelmed the entire time. First birthday parties are more for the parents than the kids.

I am working from Monday to Friday and they lived in the 3 to 4 hours aways from my place, maybe I could visit him on Saturday or just ask them to come here and sleep over night in our house.

You could probably talk to your doctor to re-schedule your appointment. I believe she'll understand since she handles most of the mother-child situations. It would be priceless seeing your nephew smile if everybody's singing him happy birthday.

If I am going to re-schedule my appointment, i need to wait for another one month before I will start my ovulation monitoring and pcos treatment again. The only best options in my mind now is to asked my sister to celebrate the birthday party here and were going to pay for it, so that my husband and I can able with my nephew first birthday.

hi bhebelen, My nephew is 4 months old and I need to wait 8 more months to see him turn 1 I am really excited to that day. If you think you can't cancel your appointment and it will be hassle for you I think your sister can understand that. But being her aunt your presence will be much appreciated happy mylotting

I really want to be there for him since its his first birthday and he is very important to me. Before the party they schedule Aug. 11 which is Saturday and I am available but for some reason they change it to Friday and I can't really make it.

How I wish I can change the date of the appointment to my ob-gyne but its very impossible and if I go to my hometown it takes 3 to 4 hours before I can get there. I am just hoping that they going to celebrate his birthday here in the city since most of there guest are from here.
