I want a baby shower, first pregnancy and all that- I just want to celebrate it with friends and family, and to be VERY honest, I could really use the help right now in getting baby things because I have no idea where to start. I'm due late July, and since this is my third trimester, I'm starting to really thing about it.
My SIL offered to throw one for me, but she's (now) 8-9 hours drive away, and even after she offered she hasn't mentioned it since.
My question; is it tacky for me to throw my shower, or for close family? I kind of want two (not for the double gifts, but because its easier for my husband and I to move place to place than a huge group of people, because his family is 4-9hours away, depending on who we're talking about) showers, but I don't know how to go about it, or if I should even go there. I read that its considered tacky unless a friend throws it, who isn't related to you, but all of my friends attend college and work (and one has herself a 2yr old) and I think they're a bit too busy for me to bother them with my want for a shower....
If no one close to me offers, and if SIL's doesn't pan out, do I just not get one?
Can I ask someone to throw one for me/help me throw one/co-host?
(I bolded the questions so you could find them easily within the background.)
