Not sure if I will have one or not since this is our 2nd. My work will probably have one.

No, I hope not. I had the normal big one for my first and then friends threw me a surprise diaper party for my second. I am the type of person that feels guilty about people spending money on me. If there was something I wouldn't want any gifts, just more of a celebration of the baby.

I'm not planning on it, since we had a pretty big one with Connor. Especially if we have another boy, we will not need anything! I am going to have a gender reveal party, though!

Never had one before. I did want one last time but my mom thought it was a silly idea. SO, ,this time it seems even sillier. I don't really have anyone to invite anyways. I have 1 local friend and 2 long distance friends. Only my mom and my Aunt lives nearby.

Short answer: no I guess.

I will need one since I have nothing left but not sure if anyone would come since this is number 4 and I dont have a lot to invite. We live in a small town and I cut off ties with all the drama so small guest list

Idk. I had a small one for my first, but I have a whole new group of friends and a lot of different people in my life that I could see wanting to host a shower for me. I kind of hope so

Yeah, this is our first, and my church friends are SOOO excited about the pregnancy. In fact, my one friend already claimed dibs on hosting my baby shower MONTHS before we even started TTC. Since we have no family near by, and I don't work anymore, that will probably be the only shower I have

Nope. This is my 3rd baby, I have one of each gender so I still have stuff... so I don't want one. I was never big on being the center of attention anyway. This pregnancy we are so much more financially prepared, so I feel like I can manage on my own okay.

Nah. I had one with my son so we have everything now. If we have a girl, we'll just get clothes later. I have a niece that was born this past June, so we'll get all her age-appropriate hand-me-downs.

This is my 2nd so no. We have everything except newborn clothes .
I had two with my first and both were just.....awkward. I hate opening presents (really how many times can you say thank you?) and i hate knowing people spent their money on things for my child.

We lived away from family for my first 2 children but a friend in WA threw a small get together. And I had one with friends and family with our 3rd. It was fun but kinda disappointing at the same time. My cousin scheduled her sons birthday party the same day as the shower but never sent out invites so no one wanted to come to the shower because they were going to the birthday party. So we moved it but hardly anyone came still. But I had a good time with the people that did come and so thankful to my best friend for throwing it. We will probably have a BBQ with no gifts to welcome the baby.

If someone wants to throw me a shower, great! But since this is our second child it is not really necessary as we have all the baby basics already.

Probably not... Maybe just a nice lunch with friends to celebrate the baby. But I'm not expecting any gifts.

I prolly will. I already have 2 friends fighting over who will host it. I kinda have mixed feelings about it though. This baby will be our first together but #4 to the family. I just feel greedy.
