Me and my DH moved to CA from MD. I dont have any close friends here. We have only been in CA for 8 months. We are involved in our church and attend weekly meetings. My question is that I dont know if they would step up to throw me a shower. I do not want to ask, either. They dont know if I have made any other friends outside of the church. I know that if I had some kind of gathering they would come. They have already expressed that they would help me and DH with the baby and our toddler. I have neighbors that would also come if I had one. I never had a baby shower for my son and I really would like to have one this time. People asked me why I didnt have 1. I do not plan to ask for big ticket items. I will register so people can pick what they would like to bring. I will allow kids to come because my son is coming, so I want to do before she is born. There is a sickness going around here.Answer Question

Forget about the presents. You can just have a party to welcome the baby. You could call is a Blessingway. There is lots of info about Blessingways as alternative to baby showers online.
You really don't need that much stuff to have a baby and most of it gets in the way. You can find great stuff at yard sales and have fun getting great deals. All I wanted by my third baby was a car seat and a sling. I borrowed a co-sleeper type bed. I got clothes and blankets at yard sales, really nice soft things for $1 or less. I didn't think I would have more babies and had gotten rid of all my baby things.
