I am due 2/6. My mom and sister in law are throwing a big party for us, not just girls, everyone, which will be awesome. The only thing is that they don't want to do it in December, so it is scheduled for JANUARY 11, when I will be 36 weeks. What do you ladies think? Too late, or it will be ok? Almost all baby gear will come from the presents we receive at the party. So last minute or no big deal?

Mine is scheduled for Jan 17 and I'm due Feb 13/17. I don't really have a say in it so I say just roll with it.
I'm sure most will have their gift ready beforehand so if little critter comes early I'm sure folks won't mind handing over the necessities early.

Not having one this time, but friends was 17 weeks, his family was in Nov I think (Due Feb 2 first time) they say it's bad luck to have one before 7 months. Whatever I guess. My moms side did after baby was born so they could meet her cause we all live too far away.

I dont think Jan is too late. Whenever works.

I am having mine the 2nd weekend of November, I won't be 7 months just yet but I have never heard of the superstition about bad luck to have one prior to 7 months. Now I'm freaked out lol!
I am due Feb 2nd but it was either do one early November or in January. I don't think it is too late to have yours in January. We sort of lose 2 months due to the holidays and it's a little hard to plan a shower near Thanksgiving and Christmas.

For my first I had my co-ed shower on the last week of June and had baby the first week of August.... I felt it was plenty of time to get things ready for baby... I say it's a good amount of time and it's no big deal
My concern was how much energy I would have to entertain everyone but I felt great. Hope you do too!

When I was pregnant wth my son I had my shower feb 28 and he was born the next weekend and it was fine. He was born two weeks early though but still about the same timing as yours. Honestly it will help the last couple weeks go faster if you want cuz you will be setting everything up from your shower. My opinion anyway.

I'm due the same day and I'm having mine in Thanksgiving for the same reasons. Just wanna make sure I have everything ready and that the holidays aren't too stressful.

I, too, am having mine the second weekend of November. We scheduled it so that it would be before the holidays hit.
