  • As a rule, you wait until the third trimester. I had mine 3 weeks before my due date.

  • well. with my first, i had two. i had one for my moms side of the family and my friends that lived around her, and one for my dads side and friends that lived around him. i had the first one about seven weeks before my due date and the other one i went into labor during and it was three, almost four weeks till my due date. but this time around im having THREE showers, one for friends, one for dads side(just family), and one for moms side(just family). im doing three different registries and giving each shower invite a different place to shop. im having one when im seven months, one when im eight, and one when im nine. females are having showers at ALL different times now-a-days. if you want to plan an early shower, go for it!!!
    just make sure you have a unisex shower so that you dont have pink things for a little boy or blue things for a little girl =]
