Do/did you have a baby shower planned? If so, when is/was it?

Yep, had a little family only one on Sept 21st. As a group we went to my 3d/4d ultrasound and then had lunch together and a small shower.

No baby shower for me. If I do have one it will be a total surprise because no one has told me about it. I had a small one for my first baby and still have everything brand new, just waiting to be used.

My mom mentioned having a "meet the baby" get together where people can bring gifts if they want to. I think that sounds nice but I'm weird about germs and getting a big group of people together during cold and flu season. Not really what I want to do. I have a moby wrap so I plan on wearing Toren and hoping no one wants to hold him (yea right, what are the chances people wont want to hold a newborn?!) BUT even the meet the baby get together isn't written in stone yet. She was just brain storming ideas since there isn't much left I really need for this baby. Well... besides an electric pump. That's pretty much the only thing I want that I haven't picked up yet.

I'm not having one, either. This is our 3rd girl, so we pretty much have everything we need. My mom did buy us a woombie swaddle piece which I'm excited to try, as I haven't tried the zippered ones before. I'd like a new double elect pump, as mine's dying, but I want to wait to see if our insurance actually will cover one. Showers are fun, but we don't need much...

No shower here... After 6 Kids no one really cares if you're pregnant or not anymore... Totally didn't expect one. I had a shower off my first two though, so that was nice!

I had one already for DF's family, and one for my family this Saturday. The one I already had was pretty small, but we got a lot of things we needed. The upcoming one however... That one is going to be huge. I plan on going all out and decorating I'm not the type to let other people decorate for me ... I love to come up with ideas and themes myself

No. I did have more than one person ask about it, but I have declined. We actually could use a few things, but still I am at peace.

I have been fortunate to have had baby showers for four babies, as I have friends who love celebrating new life. We don't always make it about gifts! Then I have family members who DEFINITELY disagree with this, and they'd show up with a plant just to make a statement. I love plants! I just know what it means and how to read between the lines.

No shower here. These are babies No. 3 & 4. I'm sure they'll be getting Christmas gifts though. My mom has picked up some things for the babies, and my grandma is buying me 4 huge cases of diapers. We pretty much have everything we need anyways. Just need to buy another car seat...

We had our shower this past Saturday! We had a wonderful time and lots of good fellowship. It was a couple's shower so DH was able to be there and we definitely enjoyed it. The only thing that we didn't get, is our pack n play but we kind of figured that would happen. We received 2 swings, so we will take one back and exchange for the pack n play. We also haven't got our car sear and stroller yet but DH's parents are getting us that, they just haven't gone and gotten it yet. Other than a few small things, "just in case bottles" and such, I think we are pretty much set!

I had one on Saturday. The only bigger thing we needed was our pack and play and we did recieve that. We received tons of adorable clothes. We just need a few odds and ends and we will be ready and I'll be getting those this weekend. It was a lot a of fun and since DH's family threw it, I jhad him come too. I think he was the most excited and had a great time. I had more fun watching him take it all in
