  • There is no best time. If someone wants to give you a shower, let them at their convenience.

  • I was 4 weeks away from my due due when I had mine. It doesn't really matter though. Anywhere between finding out the sex and a month b4, is fine lol

  • I think it should be done around the 6 month, that way you already know what you are having and you have plenty of time to get the things that you didn't get a the shower and time to set everything up. With my son my baby shower was two weeks before my due date, I was in the hospital the night before and had actually just been released and had to go straight there. And then went back up to the hospital that night and had him, I had no time to put everything up, and my husband had to rush around and get a few things we still needed.

  • 7-8 months. You do want to have everything set up at 36 wks just in case.

  • Don't wait to long. My sister had her baby shower 4 wks before her due date and had the guest of honor(baby) joined her. It was cute though. We put him in a basket as the center piece.
