Are showers supposed to be a surprise?? My mom is throwing me a shower the first weekend of June and she has refused to tell me anything about it? It is making me crazy! I realize I sound ungrateful, but you have to understand my mother, she is very controlling and I think part of the reason she is doing this is just so I don't have any say!! It is honestly stressing me out. She claims all showers are surprises? I don't mind a few here and there, but I am inviting some of my friends and I don't want my mom to plan some off the wall thing if I don't approve. Does that make sense or do I just sound like an emotional crazy pregnant woman?

By me all showers are surprises. It's a regional thing, I think.

Do your own registry and tell your mother where you registered. Also tell her "No XYZ, please. I've hated that when I've seen it at other showers and I really don't want it at mine!"

At least you know when your shower is and that you're definately having one. I had to do a bit of snooping before I even knew for sure my sister was having one for me.

Showers here really aren't surprises. I've just pretty much let my mom and sister do their thing though. I'm sure your mom won't do anything to embarrass you. I'd just let her know where you've registered and let her have her fun.

Thanks, ladies. I guess I'm just stressing out over it but I probably shouldn't be.

Some are surprises, others aren't. I think a surprise shower would be fun!

Personally, I'd just let her plan it how she wants it. You know? It would be so much less stress on you. I knew about my babyshower with DD#1 but I didn't have anything to do with planning it really. It was nice that way. The only things the person hosting my shower asked me to do were give her a list of people & addresses that she knew would like to be there but had no way of contacting them, if I had a preference in the theme (of course I said no), and where I was registered incase people asked when they RSVPd. She also asked me if a certain day and time was ok for me (I was working at the time so I needed to be able to get that day off). Other than that, it was all up to her.
