Baby shower for my 2nd baby?

I am currently pregnant with my 2nd child - my first child was born 13 years ago when I was 17 yrs old. I have been married to a wonderful man for the last 8 years! As stated before we are currently expecting our 1st child together. I would like to know if it is ok to have a baby shower for this baby?

  • I think this would be totally fine! There is a big gap between your kids and a lot has changed since 13-years ago. Good luck!

  • I think so. If anyone opposes you could have a diaper party but I doubt anyone's gonna complain, congrats!

  • of course it is! you haven't had a baby in 13 years lol there's got to be so much stuff you're going to need. i see nothing at all wrong with having another baby shower, and most likely since it's been so long the excitement of a new baby coming will cause someone else in your family to throw it for you. but even if you do it, it's been such a long time. both you and the baby deserve to be showered :) congrats!

  • Oh, yes!! My kids were 10 years apart and no one questioned me having a second one.

  • Thank you everyone for the kind words and advise! I have been reading info on google they all say it is selfish to have a baby shower after baby number 1. Thanks again!
