My mom wants to throw my shower June 3rd. I'm due mid-July, I personally would like to have it late April early May that way my husband and I can slowly pick up the things we will still need after the shower, because I am sure we will still need things as I don't have too many friends and a lot of our family members are really out of town (like across the country) and have already said they won't be coming to the baby shower. My mom hasn't officially started planning it, but is it ok to request it a little earlier. From the day we told her we were expecting it's like she has set this date in stone. Seriously Christmas eve after we told her she ran over to the calendar to look.
