I guess I should clarify, I'm asking about a pre-baby shower.
My mom wants to throw one before the baby is here, but we have two issues with that - #1 - we are Team Green, so if the baby is a girl we will need a lot more than if the baby is boy. We don't really need any neutral stuff or the basics for every baby. And #2 - We are almost out of time... It feels too late to have a baby shower to me, and I'm thinking a meet the baby party would be better.

I would probably do a meet the baby party if you don't need anything right away. That is more fun for people in some ways especially with the second. Some people get funny about having a shower with each child. My sister is throwing one for me I will be 31 weeks. Its been 5 years since we had a baby and we don't have anything. Or at least we didn't LOL.
I am having mine at a point I am sure people would say is to early, I'll be 25 weeks, But I have to travel and my insurance won't cover an opps I'm in labor and away from home, therefor I cannot travel after 30 weeks and that was the only week that really worked for both myself and my mom. I would have loved to have it around 33 weeks or so.
If I were you though I would at this point do a meet the baby or try to get invites out this week for a 37 week shower
