  • about 2 or 3 months before the big day. It gave me time to enjoy my baby's new things, set up (and re-set up) his room, and wash or return all items recieved.

    Also, any closer to the due date and you may be uncomfortable, cranky, and in the bathroom every 20 minutes:)

  • I didn't have a baby shower with my first.
    With this one, we're planning around 5-6 months, depending. I went preterm with my first, so I'm angsty that I might with this one without being fully prepared, but we'll start rolling the ball as soon as I find out the gender.

  • I had my family/friends shower on January 31st and my work one on February 18th. She was do around March 6th and came on February 25th. I had my family/friends one on the 31st of January cause you never know when are you going to go and I really wanted to be showing for my shower. And my work one, it was so late cause I fought to not have one and they gave me one anyways.

  • I'm due November 9th and I had my shower yesterday! I'll have another one for all the girls that I work with since they weren't able to make it, because of work.

  • I had one at 29 weeks and one at 30 weeks. I liked the timing. Gives you time to go shopping for the stuff you don't get that you will need.
