SO and I are still TTC so maybe this won't be an issue when the time comes, but do I have to have a shower?
Because of his job, SO and I are going to be moving several times in the next few years. I doubt we'll be spending more than a year in one place for a few years. So the likelyhood of moving while I'm pregnant is quite good. To me personally it just seems kind of like a gift grab if I have a baby shower after only living somewhere a couple of months. I wouldn't go to a shower of someone I've only known a few months, unless they really needed baby stuff. (Which we won't. SO and I both have good jobs and good savings.)
Also, most of our family live out of state and it would be a huge hassle to have an out of state shower and then ship halfway across the US or return in the other state and buy again when we get home.
If someone offers me a shower to I HAVE to accept?
