I just voted no, but I didn't have a shower the first time round either. It's becoming more common here in NZ, but showers aren't as much an expectation as they are in the US.
Having said that, I feel like I might organise a lunch or afternoon tea or osmehting. Not a gift giving exercise but a, "now I know what I'm in for, let's have a bit of fun before I get buried in sleepless night for the next few weeks/months."
Stellar1:When we had DD we had a big couples shower. The second time around we were having a DS. My best friend and mom threw me a "sprinkle" to celebrate the new baby. I got mostly boy clothes and diapers/wipes. Where I live most of my friends have had some sort of celebration for their second baby. I know that is not the norm everywhere.
Same here, but I had DS first and we are having DD this time. My SILs are working together and were so excited to celebrate a baby girl.
MYLYNDA:I am having one, but it has been 15 years between my babes, so I have nothing left from my sons LOL
this for sure. my girls will be 16 years apart when she is born.
