This isn't really about a baby shower but not sure where else to put it. I'm a few days shy of 34 weeks with my first. I'm not having a baby shower (at least not that anyone has told me anyway), and no one has asked about our registry or bought us anything. We went out at the 28 week mark and bought the bare necessities in case of an early arrival (real possibility), but now it's getting far enough along that I'd like to have things more ready so we don't have to worry about buying things after she's here. My question is, when should I just buy the things off the registry on my own? I read all these posts about baby showers and getting gifts, but we've only gotten some homemade blankets from my MIL and some hand-me-downs from my SIL. We're not hurting for money and are happy to buy our own things, just wondering if it's normal for people to wait until the last minute/baby arrives to give things or if I should just shrug my shoulders and use the completion discount to get everything off my registry.
