When did you have your baby shower?

How far along were you when you had your baby shower, did you have one with your 2nd child, and did you ever throw one yourself and if so how'd it go?

  • I had a baby shower thrown for my with my first son after he was born. I didnt have one with my 2nd son, then with my 3rd and 4th son i was given a baby "sprinkle" with both babies by ppl in my connection group from my church. I was close to 32 weeks both times when i was thrown my last 2 showers. Everybody pitched in for the snacks and drinks.
