I have really mixed feelings on this. I know that my mom and sister want to plan one for me and they both want it to be before baby is born, but I just don't know how I feel about that. I know that I want one because I will need several things for baby. I just feel like I "should" have had one for Abby and then now I would just be using her hand-me-downs. It is very sad for me right now because I feel like I am letting others down if I don't let them throw it before. My sister is telling me that people like to play the games and see you all big and preggo at the shower, but its so hard to grasp the thought of actually bringing this baby home. I hope that doesn't make me sound like a bad person. I guess it is a good thing I have more time to make up my mind. With being due in Dec. I think that people will be tight with money because of christmas anyways, so a shower in January might be the better way to go. Any thoughts?

I know exactly what you are saying hon...
You know what i did Rhonda when I started to feel a little more comfortabel? I set up my registries and gave out the info...
if people wanted to start buying & giving gifts before the baby is born great....if they decide to wait that is fine also.
honestly now, I really do not "need" a shower at all !!
concentrate on the basics for when the baby first gets home then opt for a shower after that....there is nothing wrong with it.

My family and my dh's family want to throw one for us. But I told them I didn't want one. We live so far away that the only way it would be doable is if we just got gift cards. And I feel awkward asking for that. Kind of like asking for cash. We'll see what happens.

I had a "birthday" shower for Erin. It was thrown just after she was born. It was just easier for me that way, since I had a shower just before I lost Cora and ended up returning several packages of diapers and wipes. I couldn't handle the idea of returning stuff again, so my friend threw it for me after she was born. It was a very small affair though, since I have no family nearby.


For the next one...I don't think I'll get one, since we'll be moving in December, and if I have my way, I'll get pregnant in September and be due in May/June. And I probably won't have any friends or family where we end up, so I probably won't get one.

My mom is throwing me one in July and my SIL is going to host one sometime in October (after the baby is born).
