Nobody to throw me a shower (sniff)

So I am having this child in a vacuum, seems like. I also have no mommy friends, and my closest girlfriend is 24, single, and not likely to be a mommy any time soon, and by her choice, maybe never.
My mother can't throw me a shower because she's on SSI/disability and has no disposable income, and also has no real social network.
Truthfully, I don't need one, because my DH's family have already "showered" me with hand-me-down baby clothes and such from previous births in the family, and we have all the stuff we need. But I feel kind of sad that I won't get to be the center of attention and have all the fuss and wrapping paper and cake and little cute items I don't really need, because not only is this my 1st, this is the baby I thought I would never be able to have.
This is my big chance to be princess for a day, and there's no party. Can anyone throw me a pat on the shoulder?
