  • I was 37 weeks. But you can have it at anytime hun.
    I know a few girls that waited until the baby was born before they had theirs.

  • They say wait until the 5 month mark so your good to go. I had mine at 30 wks.

  • I think thats agood time to have one, that way if you still need to buy a few things you will have plenty of time to do it, and not be rushing out a week before youare due, that can get expensive too, buying it all at once like that.

    We played baby bingo at mine, and the yarn game where everyone cuts off a bit of yarn they think will be closest to how big moms belly is, the closest wins. And we gave out safety pins at the door, every time you said the word "baby" someone got to steal your pin, the person with the most won at the end of the shower.

  • I think it's better to have it early because 1. you could have the baby early and 2. you don't want to be 9 months pregnant running around trying to buy the things you didn't get but will need.

  • You can have it whenever you want to. I am 34 weeks now, so I will be having mine at 37. My cousin is due the same day as me and she having hers this weekend, so 35 weeks.

  • Its your baby shower! you can have it at any point. I knew a girl who had one at 28 weeks. I recently had mine at 34 weeks, butpersonally I wish I had waited a little. I now have everything set up, put together, and organized. Now I just keep looking at it all wishing she was here! its making the wait harder when I see her crib all set up, and no baby girl laying in it. but to each her own!
