My friend organised all the games and I supplied some snacks and little prizes, but it didn't cost a lot. what a shame though as i'm sure you would have been looking forward to it.

If it's true you're supposed to pay for your own shower, then me and my SIL got robbed by my sister! They must be throwing you a surprise shower - that's really how it's supposed to be!

I think it depends...

Some people say if it's not your first you should host... Others say if you are having a child period you should have one hosted for you... Some say it depends on the age gaps between the children, others say it depends on whether or not the children are the same sex, etc...

I've honestly never heard of the expectant mother paying for her own shower. That's really weird, I hope you get a suprize shower as well!!

I have never heard of someone paying for their own showers! Even if it's not the 1st. My best friend is a single mom having her 8th so I am throwing one for her and I am a married mom having my 4th and she is throwing one for me. Even though we are due only a month apart we are having separate ones though because I don't want my friends and family feeling like they need to buy for her, as well as I don't want her friends and family thinking they need to buy for me either. We are going to recycle the decorations and use the leftover supplies for the other one. I am preparing the food for hers and she is preparing the food for mine. Our showers are going to be pretty small though because this isn't our first children. We are inviting only close friends and family, not everyone we know.
