As far as I'm concerned, you were never invited to the shower. So you are not obligated to send a gift.

Tell your sister that you will be purchasing a gift on your own after Baby arrives. I'm sure you would have done that anyway. I wouldn't even bother mentioning the lack of invitation, just leave it there. What good would it do if she found that out? (I am assuming that she is not the one giving the shower when I ask that last question.)

I'm personally superstitious about baby showers; I have had one nephew stillborn (just before the baby shower was to be held) and I just feel that it's better to shower the baby with gifts AFTER the birth.

I understand your feeling of jealousy about family going out of their way to spoil some other baby in the family when they never spoiled yours.
