who all is having one?
when is it?
If nobody volunteered to give you one would you throw your own?

I thought about a meet the baby party but with it being so close to Thanksgiving I don't think I would have a good turn out plus Im worried about so many people passing my baby around and its gonna be cold/flu season

Yes. My mom is doing it, although I think I'm going to be doing a bunch of the work! I wouldn't throw one for myself. We'll have it in September.

I want one, and if I have one I'll probably end up throwing it myself. My cousin suggested a football themed party/shower where family can just come together and watch the game, cookout eat and just have a good time. Might happen, would have gone better with having a boy but I'll see. It would be good to have it be more of an informal party.

No shower for me

I wouldn't have a shower for myself, but when we had mine we had it at my house. My mom's house was having the kitchen/dining too/living room redone at the time. It worked out well though because we didn't have to move the gifts anywhere!

I'm having one on August 3rd; it's been 14 years since my 2nd child.

I was going to throw one for myself (my aunt is hosting it at her house) but my mom volunteered to take over that duty.

No one has offered yet, and with a second girl, I bet no one will. However, my girlfriends always do something special for second timers, even if it's not a real shower, and more of a dinner party, so I suspect something will pop up. I truly don't need anything except perhaps a few gift cards for the crib and bedding.

I wouldn't throw one for myself, but my best friend offered as soon as I told her I was pregnant. It will probably be sometime in October, but not sure when yet. Her SIL is due 2 weeks before me, and she is throwing that shower too, so she will be busy!

who all is having one? Not sure at this point but, it is my third baby so I doubt it

when is it? Don't know

If nobody volunteered to give you one would you throw your own? No, especially not on my third baby

Nope, won't be having one especially as this is our second girl. And I wouldn't throw one for myself either.

Apparently mine is scheduled for August 3rd. I believe my sister-in-law is technically throwing it, but think my mom is helping out quite a bit too. They're trying to keep it all on the down-low but I told them they at least had to tell me the date. :-)

I probably wouldn't have thrown a shower for myself, but I would have had an official shower/party if no one else had offered. We need all the stuff we can get! And even more importantly (to me) I really want to celebrate these little miracles with my friends and family!

I am having one. It is August 31st and my sister will be throwing it. I would probably not throw my own just because I need all of our funds for our bundle of joy! But I'm excited!
