  • i would only worry about resting and keeping in that baby long as possible. 27 weeks is scarey. let your fam or friends do a shower. u relax momma take care of that baby.

  • You can have a baby shower after the baby is born. Then the baby gets to go.

  • I would do it after. Not to scare you but 27 weeks is scary early. You don't know what problems you may encounter. Keep that baby in as long as possible, take from this NICU mom, what I would have given for just 2 more weeks!

  • I don't see why u can't have a baby shower after u have your baby.... But I can tell u this, depending if u go natural or c-section u will not be feeling like going to your baby shower, especially if u have a c-section. I had mine that way, and I tell u this, it hurt like HELL! Of course, I am a wimp from hell, but u will at least stay in the hospital for 3 days to make sure there will be no infections and forgive me for being blunt, but they will niot let u go intill u do the #2. This is just my experiance, so u might differ and your insurance is different. I was on medicaid when I had my daughter. Wjhen I got home, I didn't want o do anything for long time, almost a month, again u might differ....anyway, congrats on your baby, do u know what th baby is yet?

  • It's more than ok to have one after and a lot of people actually prefer it so they can see the baby.

  • After the baby is born. For now you need to focus on keeping the baby inside a little longer. Has you doctor put you on Terbutaline/Brethine yet?? It might be something to consider. Stay off your feet as much as you can and good luck!! Baby shower after the baby gets here unless you really want to do it before, but I wouldn't recommend it under high risk conditions.

  • I would prefer to have it before, especially if it is your first, that way you would have alot of the items before he comes. We got the car seat and alot of diapers at my shower, so I'm glad we had that stuff before hand.
