I know we've talked about baby shower's a little bit but who is having one and when is it?? I'm sure most of you are probably having them in the next month or 2 right?? Are you getting excited?!?

I'm a little sad I won't get a shower since this is baby #2. I don't really care about the gifts, I just see a shower as a party to celebrate this new baby and am sad this baby isn't getting that but I guess that's just how 2nd babies go.

MIL is throwing me a "sprinkle" on may 18th. the idea still makes me uncomfortable since i was raised that showers are for 1st babies only, but she's super excited.

A friend is organizing a little one for me on Apr 21. It will be co-ed, no games or anything. So really it's just a party which is perfect. I've been promised there will be cupcakes.

This is my second baby but I'm throwing myself a shower. Lol I never had a bridal shower or baby shower so I feel like this is my one chance to do it. It's not about the gifts for me, just a hance to celebrate the baby and pregnancy. I think we will do the shower in late June. I have started planning food but that's it. Lol

No plans for a shower for me. This is my second baby (gender still unknown) and my twin sister literally just had her baby 9 months ago. I threw her a shower and had so much fun. She threw me a shower 5 years earlier for my first.
I don't really need anything but I like your thinking MJBABY. Cupcakes are always welcomed!
My friend at work is really trying to convince me to have a shower. I figure if they throw one, I'll be happy but otherwise I don't expect one

I'm having one May 18th or 19th (guess I need to find out what day, huh?). I know that it's going to be pirate themed and there will be cake, but that's pretty much all I know. My co-workers are also doing something small next week too.

My twin sister is throwing me one April 20 (!!!). That will mostly friends. My inlaws are having one in their hometown on May 31, and my mother is having a "meet the baby" party sometime after he/she arrives.

I feel excited to be showered with so much love! I was depressed and feeling quite alone at first, because I don't have any real friends here so none of these parties are in the city where I live- I have to travel at least 2 1/2 to 5 hours for each of these showers. I'm feeling a lot better now.

I'm having a little get together in the beginning of June but this is our 3rd child so I don't feel right about it. We didn't have one for the second and hubby REALLY doesn't agree with this one, but my grandmother-in-law insists and it will be nice to celebrate our last baby I guess..

Not here, but we welcome visitors and will probably have a bunch of people over one night for a BBQ to welcome baby home!

My best friends are throwing me a shower and its my third baby. I am excited but said keep it small. I am cloth diapering and am set for that. For those of you on your second or third that feel like you should not have a shower, maybe you should have a diaper shower. Everyone brings diapers and just celebrates the baby. I had that with my second and it was really nice!

I don't know of any shower plans, but we'll be having family over for dds bday in early June, then probably do some sort of housewarming/welcome baby party in Aug or Sept.

I always thought of baby showers being a first baby only thing, so we're going to have a party after the baby is born so we can have a celebration for him/her as well. It's not fair for just the oldest to get all the celebration!

I really want to have a diaper shower but don't exactly want to throw one for myself! haha! A lot of our friends and family are beer drinkers so I thought it would be fun to have a party at our house on a Friday or Saturday night and have a keg, bonfire, and food and anyone that comes has to bring diapers. Like I said though, I don't really want to put my own diaper shower together because then I feel like I'm begging. I don't know what to do??

No baby shower here. This is baby number 3 for us, I did throw myself a very small shower for my first and I like the idea of a welcome baby get together after baby is born but we live pretty far from family and don't really know anyone around here. However my birthday is April 20th so I will be making cupcakes and me and my kiddos will eat them! Lol maybe I'll do pink frosting and say they're birthday/baby cupcakes!
