I am wondering, when do you ladies think is the best time to have your baby shower? I am a mother of 2 but never had a shower. Both of my girls were 15 days early. And my youngest it snowed so bad we were stuck inside. I plan on having one this time around but don't know when is a good time.

They are usually around 6 weeks before due date on average, in my experience.

Usually from the ones I've attended, they've been around the 7th month. I think ours will be a little earlier though but only because we're expecting twins, I'm 39 and my last pregnancy I ended up on bed rest because he wanted to come early. We're half expecting to spend the last couple of months on bed rest so the family is shooting for 6 months.
My History:
Three sons (19, 17 & 14) from first marriage
2003--tubal ligation
2007--remarried, DH has no biological children
2008--tubal reversal
2013--diagnosed with too much damage to tubes, totally useless

IVF #2
3/14/14-- ER, 12 eggs retrieved, all 12 fertilized by ICSI
3/19/14-- ET, 2 Beautiful 5 day blasts transferred, 5 frosties!
3/24/14-- Faint BFP w/FMU.
3/31/14-- Beta = 578!! U/S scheduled for 4/14!
4/14/14-- U/S confirms TWINS!! Strong heart beats, perfect shape and perfect size!
6/11/14-- TWIN BOYS!!!!
11/1/14-- Jacob Roger and Josiah Todd are welcomed to the world!!

I think they *can* be anytime but in my experience, most commonly in the 7th or 8th month.

Thank you Kiliki for my awesome siggy!

I have no idea. I threw one once and the mom was 8 months. I had no idea what I was doing though. I think add long as it's before baby and mom can stand all the activity anytime after that cute belly is showing works.

I seem to remember mine being at about 32 weeks or so.

A couple I have gone to have been about the same, and another was when Mom was 37 weeks.

usually 8 months, but i think this time around since it is around the holiday season, probably around 7-ish months
