  • I think it's normal to want one...but it's up to someone else to throw i for you. Good luck , I hope someone does.

  • I wouldnt think so. I have 2 children and i had a shower with my first but not with my second. I think every mom deserves a baby shower whether its for her first or her third.

    I would as for one, every bit helps especially with having 2 kids. Plus, its just fun!

    Best wishes!

  • Of course you are not wrong to want to have people around you celebrate the life you are carrying inside of you. I would really express it to your close friends that it would mean a lot to you. If not throw one yourself and invite who ever you want. Congrats on your new baby!

  • Your friends or family don't neccessarily HAVE to through you a babyshower. Do it yourself. My mother had told me, she was going to make me a babyshower and at the last minute decided not too. I was fine with it at first, but then I thought about it and really wanted one because having a babyshower helps a lot and those are wonderful memories of when you were pregnant. I decided to make my own babyshower, and it worked out wonderfully. =] If you really want it, then you should make it yourself.
