  • Do it when you want its your day and really that is not that early! I think good rule of thumb is as long as you look preggo in the pics your set to go :)

  • With my first, the baby shower was 2.5 months before my due date. This time around it is planned for 2.5 weeks before my due date.

  • I don't think that's too early. It's better to give yourself some time to make returns and go buy what you didn't get. Mine was at the end of March and I was due the end of April.

  • I would say about a month or two before your due.

  • I had mine at 37 weeks ... I thought that was a lil too late though because I was worried I was going to go early and miss my baby shower. However, looking back I had such a good time and everyone loved seeing me soooo pregnant :)

  • With most of my kids, my shower(s) were around 2 months before the baby was due. Gave me plenty of time to go out and get the things that I didn't receive for my shower or the things I forgot to put on my registry.

  • I was 35 weeks pregnant. It gave me plenty of time to finish my sons room, make returns, & pick up the essential stuff that I didnt get from the shower! I wouldnt wait any longer than that though bc I naturally had my son at 38w 1day!
