I think it really depends on what is traditionally done in your family and circle of friends. In my life, a second baby shower is usually a co-ed, casual thing, with no gifts expected. One friend of mine had a "shower" like this, and everyone brought gifts because her girls were eight years apart, and everyone was really excited for their new addition.
I think people (like a lot of women on the baby showers board...) sometimes go a little overboard in their snobbery, calling almost every second baby shower "tacky."
Like others said, if someone wants to throw you one, be a good sport.
I can tell you that this is my second child, my first is 5 and a half (see siggy), weather this baby is a boy or girl I know that my BFF is throwing me a shower (she already told me). It has been almost 6 years. I have passed down everything I had through those years to family and friends who really needed them. So now I have nothing. And I know those same people will be there to help me.
coachswife3:Yes and this will be my 3rd. All of my family and friends believe in celebrating each baby
