is it wrong to have 2 baby showers in your opinion??

Im pregnant with my second baby, we have not found out the gender yet.
Our first was a girl she is now almost 14 months old. So if its a girl we can use the same stuff our daughter used but if its a boy we have absoloutley NOTHING. everything our daughter has is PINK ha.(seriously)
But if its another girl i still want to have a party you know just to celebrate a new baby. how could i do this with out people thinkin bad??

  • I would just have a party--not a shower! Go ahead and register, no matter what, I buy all my friends gifts for 1st or 5th baby! It is nice to know what they would like, happy birthing!

  • Forget what people think, when you find out the gender if it is a boy, make up a invitation like this:

    Another birth, another blessing, but this time around he is not a she.
    His name will be:

    I ask my friends and family I love to join us for a celebration, of my new born son.

  • I refused a baby shower. I didn't want to feel like I was begging for gifts. After our daughter was born, we invited the people we love over for brunch, and to meet our new family member.

  • welcoming party, baptism/christening party, birthday party whatever you want to call it. A shower is too much about the gifts and usually women only. I say invite everybody and do it after baby comes.

  • Nothing wrong with having another baby shower, why not? Your not having the same baby again. Even after I knew the sex of the child I was having I asked that everything be something that is alright to use for either sex. As I stated to people I don't think you can be 100% sure of what they tell you the child's sex might be. They can tell you your having a girl and you still might end up with a boy because the genitalia does not always drop right away and it can still appear to be a girl and it does not drop till the last minute then you have a situation if you have everything only for a girl. If they say a boy then you can be pretty sure its a boy.

  • The shower is for the baby, not the mommy. I feel that you should have a shower (or sprinkle since you don't need as much stuff) for every baby. It's a celebration of the child.

  • I don't see anything wrong with it either. Except are you throwing it yourself or is someone throwing it for you?

  • I had three baby showers for my first baby, and for my second, ( I didn't know the gender) I waited untill right after she was born, and we had a 'meet the baby shower" which was really cool and she got her own precious mementos. I think you should definately have a shower for this baby.

  • Traditionally showers are for first babies only. Have a celebration and call it just that and put no gifts please on the invitations. If you truly want to just celebrate then no biggie, just be honest.
