  • It was years ago...I was around 8 months pregnant. I didn't know the sex of the baby. We got a lot of green and yellow stuff. Wow.....that baby is 29 now. How time flies.

  • I ended up having her 3 days before my shower lol. If we had planned it based on my original due date, things would have been fine, but we went by the BS they told us with my 20 week ultrasound and it was too late to get an earlier rental at the place we had the shower, so DD came home the day of her shower and got to be there.

  • My little sister threw my baby shower 13 days before my daughter was born (at 39 weeks via induction/c-section). We knew it was going to be a girl beforehand. I am too OCD not to know, LOL.
