Shower?

When is everyone planning their showers? Im due May23rd and have the date April 13th... Is there a too early or too late?

 There are some crazy cute ideas on pinterest if ya'll havn't found them yet. I am having a girl, so the pinkness is too fun!

 I'm doing a creat-it station for keepsakes from people. I'm gonna have some onsies, blocks and bibs for people to decorate with cute sayings.

  • Sounds like a perfect date for me! Not sure I'm having a shower this time around, but during my 1st pregnancy, I had my first shower about 8 weeks before my EDD.

  • I'm due May 30th and my shower is April 27th.  I'm actually kind of nervous to have it that late, but the location we wanted only had two dates available and that was the more reasonable of the two.

  • I think that's a good time to have have it. I'm due May 9th and one shower is on March 16th and the other March 24th. I'll be 32 and 33 weeks along.
  • My hostess and I have decided on March 2nd. It's a little early but March and April are very busy for my family with birthdays and we have a friend getting married in April with wedding festivities planned throughout the month. Since we have a very close group of friends I decided to go with a day that I don't think anything has already been planned. 
  • Cool thanks ladies! Sounds like we have a good date. Yeah I thought I may have to do it the first week of May as I have 3 sibling b-days in April and don't want to steal their time, but conveniently the week of the 13th was available!
  • I'm due 5/1 and my shower dates are 3/9 and 3/30.

  • I'm due May 5 and my shower is being planned on March 23. I'm not involved at all in the planning, but since my mother and sister who are planning it are coming from 1500 miles away, they wanted to make sure it was on a weekend that worked for me. (Plus, my childbirth classes are in March, and I needed to make sure it wouldn't conflict.) I toyed with April, but wanted more time to shop for things I still needed after the shower, before I was too tired/too big to move. haha

  • I won't be having one this time around but with my DD my friends planned it around the time is was 32 weeks, still early enough for me to enjoy it. Plus had I had it any later, I would have ended up buying everything on my registry... I wanted to have the nursery done by 36 weeks.

  • I am due May 29th and I'd like to have my shower mid April or so. I am not sure of the dates yet as the hosts have not started to plan.
  • I wish someone else would plan mine, but as my mom had to go spoil my life and inform me she is divorcing my dad of 22 years. I am now on my own for planning ;( They finish everything in March... my 20th birthday, as for now she is in an apartment alone...
  • I'm due May 19th, but will have a c-section no later than May 12th. The friend who asked to host a shower for me suggested early to mid-April. I think about 6 weeks ahead is a comfortable time to hold one. 

    I have no idea what kind of keepsakes or decorations she'll be planning, because all she's told me is that it will be squirrel-themed. I can't wait to see what she comes up with!

  • My Mom is throwing me a shower in my home state March 24th. MH mentioned having a co-ed shower (I know, right? Adorable) mid-April. I told him that it'd be a little tacky for us to plan and throw our own shower, so maybe his Mom or SIL would do it?
  • My mom is hosting my baby shower on April.13 and my csection is scheduled for May.6. We are only doing a "Bare Essentials" baby shower since this is baby 2 for us.

    I'm not planning my shower, so I don't know anything. Just as a I knew nothing for my bridal shower. I think for my bridal shower my sister asked for a list of names/addresses maybe a month or 2 before, but that's about it. Perhaps it will be the same this time around.

    OP...regardless of your situation, please don't plan your own shower. It's tacky and gift grabby. Ultimately, you and your child's father are responsible for providing for your baby. A shower is a gift in itself.  If someone doesn't offer to throw you a shower, then you don't have one.

    This. If stuff is happening with your mom, maybe a friend would throw you a shower. Throwing your own is beyond tacky. Sorry.

    To answer your question, I am due May 5 and my mom is throwing me a family shower February 10 (a little early but they are moving at the end of Feb), and my friends are throwing me one March 30.

    Sorry, I'm with them. Maybe a friend or another family member (aunt, cousin, sister, etc.) would offer if they knew that your mom wasn't going to throw you one. But don't throw your own.

    Anyways, I'm due May 5th as well, and I actually already had my shower- my mom had it December 28th because Spouse and I were home for the holidays and wouldn't be back again until next Christmas (we live on the opposite coast of my family). So that was pretty early but nobody seemed to take issue with it, since it was the only time it made sense to have it.

    Simply because it seems a little gift grabby. People aren't required to give a pregnant woman gifts and baby showers are simply a formal request for them. Kinda like planning your own bachelorette party.

    My shower is being thrown by my mom. Due may 7th and the shower will be end of match beginning of April
  • *happily joins the near beer*

     O wow... never thought. Actually sadly enough it is about the gifts ;) While hunny and I make decent money, I was hoping to have a load lifted in possibly receiving some diapers and stuff... lol

    At least you're being honest. Who doesn't love getting gifts right? But the PPs are right. Hopefully youve got a friend who can host because you absolutely should not. You would be inviting everyone to bring you gifts.

    I'm due may 20th and my mom is throwing me a shower on march 23rd and 2 of my aunts are throwing me one toward the end of April. I kind of wish we could do it earlier but that is what works for them!

  • Not sure who in my family is throwing me a shower.  My grandma asked me when I wanted it done and I said I would prefer March.  I'm due May 14 and I don't want to do it too late.

  • I had a shower at 21 weeks when I went to visit my family in Canada for Christmas. My MIL and cousin are throwing a co-ed shower for us sometime in late March, when I'll be around 33 weeks.

  • My cousin and sisters are planning one for me but I have no idea when. I'm sure they'll let me know when it's closer. I figure probably towards the end of April of beginning of May. I am due May 25 but they usually cut things close.

    I don't think there's a too late. Some people are quite uncomfortable at the end of pregnancy (I was last time) but at least at a shower you can just relax. (or at least I plan to)

    I know the shower will be low key because I like it that way but I wouldn't care whatever is planned. No games and no creative stations, just lots of food drinks and talking.

  • My sister is having one on Feb. 17th.  It's early but it's also 600 miles away, so I didn't want to travel very much later.  I think my church will have one, but it's not scheduled yet.

  • My shower is really early in my opinion as it is scheduled for February 23 and I am due May 11.  There are 5 girls in my group of friends who are pregnant with their 2+ child that are throwing my shower and they are all due before me.  They wanted to make sure to have the shower before any of them were due and the first is due March 16.
