Let me start by saying I am extremely grateful and appreciative that my mom & sisters offered to throw me a baby shower... That said, I guess there were some minor conflicts with the original dates of the shower when they started planning it due to several family members being away on vacation and saying they would be offended if the shower was held when they werent around and blah blah blah... So it was finally settled that my shower would be scheduled for the end of July.
I am due on 8/23 with my first and cant help but feel a little anxious that the shower is so late. I guess I'm just a little worried that I'm going to be caught unprepared if I end up having my little girl early... I want to buy the essentials just to have something put away just in case, but my mom keeps telling me "dont buy TOO much stuff - wait for your shower!"
I guess I'm just wondering if anyone else is in a similar situation and what youre doing to make sure you're as prepared as possible.
