  • Why not? I mean if your due during a busy time of the year its probably best to do it before I think I did my DD's baby shower during mother 7 because I had thanksgiving and christmas coming up.

  • Yes, I think it's just fine. Pretty much past the "danger" zone, so to speak. Especially if 7 months in right now. With the upcoming holidays, people will be getting busy and less likely to have openings in their schedules.

  • I think that's fine. We had to do one of mine really early b/c they were putting me on bedrest. With the holidays coming up, I think it's a great idea. Congratulations!

  • It's an excellent time. You don't feel like a house yet, you're unlikely to have gone into labor, and you're most definitely pregnant.

  • Yes. Then you are far enough along to know the gender, if you so choose, and also far enough away from your due date to buy anything that wasn't gifted to you.

  • I think its the perfect time! :) Your showing but not bad to where you hate being pregnant, and like Jazz said its for enough from your due date that you can buy anything you didnt get at the baby shower!

  • General rule of thumb is 6-8 weeks before your due date.
