  • It is very possible that you could be in labor at that time! Their is nothing you can do to stop the labor process! If your body feels its time then its time! I wouldnt worry though, you can always do it after you have your baby! Good Luck!

  • You could, but I wouldn't worry about it. I had my shower a month before my due date, just so I had plenty of time to get organized and get the rest of stuff I needed.

  • I think you will be fine. Most first babies are late anyway. If anything, you may be uncomfortable and tired. Even if you have the baby before your shower, you can always reschedule. It may even be more fun to open gifts with the baby there anyway. If anyone has anything vital that you need to give to you as a gift (like furniture or a bassinett) that you'll need as soon as you come hope from the hospital, your family can ask that guests drop those gifts off at their home so you can get them as soon as you get home from the hospital.

  • My friend had her baby shower after her baby was born. On purpose. She lives out of state and couldn't travel while pregnant. The baby was a few weeks old when they had the shower. I actually think it was better than normal ones. That way you get to see who you're giving presents to. :)

  • I had my baby shower on April 6th last year and I was scheduled for a c-section on April 22nd... but I ended up having to get him out sooner on the 16th. So I only had 10 days to prepare, lol. But it worked out fine.
