I so have a question for ya'll.... =)

This is my second pregnancy. Little girl this time. So I will have a 2nd baby shower since I have NOTHING for a girl. Serouisly I have no netural clothes at all. Anyways should I wait for the baby to be born then have the "meet the baby shower" or should I have it before the baby is born in May & when should I have it?

Hubby doesn't care...he justs wants me happy lol!
My mother says before & grandmother too!
Aunt says after the baby is a good idea.

  • If YOU are the one throwing it, then it should be a "meet the baby" after the baby is born. If someone else is willing to give you a shower for a 2nd baby, then let them do it before the baby is born. IMO, throwing yourself a baby shower is tactless. Clothes aren't THAT expensive!

  • Wait to see if someone ;like you Mom or Aunt plans it..It is tacky to plan your own baby shower especially for a second baby..

  • I so agree with ya'll too...its my mom thats wants to do it but I like to be part of the planning, control issues I know =(. & yes clothes aren't that expensive but my family has a way of if its not the name brand its not good enough....and I will take my happy butt to walmart. & buy clothes & they can kiss my booty!

    P.S. no bashers just answer the question please!

  • I'm having a meet the baby party for when my little girl is born. But, I don't really need any gifts or anything. I just want to celebrate her. =) It's totally up to you which you prefer.
