Did you have a baby shower?

I'm asking...because I have three children and not one person threw me a baby shower (it has been awhile since I was preg) but I started thinking about it for some reason. My Sis in law and I were expecting our babies at the exact same time, she was thrown a huge shower by hubbys family, but when it came to me, they did nothing, nor did anyone else

  • Yes, I had one for my first son. I was 17 years old and it was a huge party with a lot of visitors 10 days after he was born. I also had a small shower thrown with my second son because it had been 8 years since I had my first. I didn't have anything left and my cousin put something together. But not my third. I wouldn't have wanted one for him anyway! I'd had enough! Seems strange you never had a shower, especially for your first babe.

  • For my current pregnancy, I didn't have a shower. My first son is 3 and we have everything we need for our pending little boy. My co-workers did have a nice lunch for me though, as with my husband's co-workers.

  • I did have a baby shower when I was expecting my twins. I had two, actually. One was a surprise thrown by my co workers, and one was thrown by my mom.

  • I had a large baby shower for my first born, 13 years ago. When I was pregnant with my second child, 11 years ago, I did not have a shower nor did I expect one. With my third child, almost 3 years ago, I had two showers; one that my friends threw and one that my DH's family threw.

    When children are born close together, it's not traditional to have a shower for the second/third child. When they are several years apart I believe the second shower is more common.

  • I am so sorry this happened to you. It is one of the most fun things about welcoming a baby into a family. I did have a shower for my first pregnancy, but not my second.

  • My husband and sister threw my shower. I don't think it would have happened at all if it wasn't for my sis.
