I'm pregnant with my 2nd baby and my MIL keeps asking me if I want a baby shower. I mean sure I'd like one since my dd was early and I never got one with her, not to mention I have nothing left. My dds 4 and I've gotten rid of everything except a few baby clothes. The things that are bugging me are 1) isn't it to early to worry about a baby shower and 2) I don't know the first thing about throwing one or if it's even a good idea since this is my 2nd baby.

I'd really love some feedback on this, since this is not my cup of tea at all.
Thanks.

As an event planner myself its NEVER too early to start planning an event even as small as a baby shower. I would say to your MIL if you want to plan one be my guest. I don't think people care any more if it's your second baby or whatever. I however do think it's not right to be throwing your own baby shower.

Hope this helps!!

Thank you. I was thinking along those lines, but kinda wanted conformation.

If you're nervous about having a shower for your second child, you could always have a sprinkle instead.

If your MIL wants to throw you a shower, let her. Why not. I don't think anyone cares anymore about whether it's the first or second. The fact is you need new things for the baby so let her throw you one.

Thanks for the advice, I'm going to just tell my MIL if she wants to have a shower do it, but I'd prefer gifts like diapers, clothes, etc. Nothing extravagant.
