  • sooner rather than latter. that way you have time to get the things that you need that you didnt get from the shower. With my daughter we had our baby shower and a month later we had her. we just wished we had more time

  • I was told 7 months is the average. Mine was a week before I delivered, two weeks before I was due, but I wish it had been sooner.

  • We haven't decided the date yet, as there is a lot going on during the month the shower will be. I will either be in week 25 or 27. My stepmom and step-cousin are hosting my shower and we have to travel to go to it. I don't want to be driving ten hours in my last trimester which is why we are doing it a little earlier than what others might do. This also gives us time to get whatever we still need after the shower is over.
