Funny you say that bc just now I was just chatting with a friend and mentioned Mom and I kinda jointly planning it and said friend just took over acting like she was throwing it. It's hard for me to let go and let others plan things bc I'm a control-freak planner by nature, LOL.
I'm sure it will be fun no matter what.
Just let it go. I promise, the day is going to be wonderful even if it isn't exactly what you had in mind. You have so much other stuff to stress about with baby on the way, leave this one to someone else. It is a gift in itself, so have a good time.
Are you having one? If not, why? Nope. We may have a meet the baby type of thing where people can bring diapers but I'm not sure yet. I really want to do some sort of meet the baby party but we don't really need gifts. I just want to share the baby with everyone!
What # child is this for you? Baby #4!
Have you had one before? If so, how did it go? What would you change? Yes, I've had three! My best friends threw me one with each baby and I was so thankful for them. I wouldnt change anything!
Do you have a theme in mind? NA
How many people will you invite? NA
Is it women only or co-ed? I've had two co-ed and one women only
Children invited? They were at all mine
Are you team blue, pink, green or yellow (don't know yet)? We don't know yet
What month do you want to have it in? I've had showers in July and November
Are you having one? If not, why?
No, because a) I don't enjoy them and b) we really don't need anything!
What # child is this for you?
Have you had one before? If so, how did it go? What would you change?
Yes. I had a family one that was lovely but had some awkward family drama. I am the oldest grandchild on that side and the first baby-haver of my generation so all my aunts were really excited to buy baby girl stuff it was nice though! Then a really awkward one thrown by my husband's coworkers who barely knew me and I got a lot of stuff I didn't want or use from people I didn't know (though I acted very happy and wrote nice thank you cards obviously!). But they *really* wanted to throw one... I felt like I couldn't say no. It was a generous effort on their part and I did it more for DH's office harmony than anything.
Do you have a theme in mind?
How many people will you invite?
I would keep it small if I were throwing one
Is it women only or co-ed?
I would do coed if I did one
Yeah sure, make it a party!
Are you team blue, pink, green or yellow (don't know yet)?
What month do you want to have it in?
I think it is best to have them in the 3rd tri sometime but not too close to your due date
The best baby showers I have attended are small intimate ones where people give really thoughtful, needed gifts. It sucks when it's too random IMO.
Just curious as I've been toying with having my 1st shower ever and this is my 4th baby so yea.
If you want one, you should have one!!! After 3 dry babies it is time
