Less than 2 months and I think I'm starting to freak out!

My first shower is this saturday and then I have another 2 weeks later and my bachelorette party 2 weeks after that. To be honest...I don't want any of them! I don't like to have everything centered around me and be "showered" w/ gifts, etc...
So I agree to have all this to make everyone else happy. I registered at 3 different places for pretty inexpensive things because I am a simple person and don't need fancy things and also because most of my guests are the same and I don't want them to spend alot.
So FMIL (who is already giving us $5k so she says) calls us yesterday (me first to wish me happy b-day and then my FI) to have him drill me on what I might really want as a gift at the shower because she says the things on the registry are just so blah and inexpensive! WHAT! Well then you just described me and hey by the way you should know me after years!
I hate to sound mean because I really do appreciate the gesture...but it was hard enough for me to find things to register for and now she is saying what I picked is not good enough and I have to all of a sudden pick something better?? WTF? If I knew something better I would have put it on there to begin with. So my poor FI is in the middle of this and he hates it. So he just called me this morning to ask if we decided on something to tell his mom and I ripped his face off and started crying!!
What is going on and why am I so emotional?

It's hard because logical me knows everything will be ok, the wedding & registry needs to be about what we want, etc. But the emotional me kinda freaks out over nothing!
I'm at 79 days so it's finally starting to feel real. On the one hand I feel pretty we-prepared but I have this fear that I'm forgetting something major!
Try and relax and enjoy your shower for what it is. Remember it's the thought that counts. As far as your FMIL...she can buy everything on your registry or pick something out that is her taste/price range. It's a gift, you shouldn't be expected to do all the work to acquire it!

I know where you are coming from though...at least I know I am not the only one...
