  • I felt the same way, it is uncomfortable. Just say thank you a lot and make sure everyone knows how grateful you are for everything.

  • If they want to have a shower for you be happy about it. Just embrace it and have a smile on your face. Don't say no to gifts for your baby. Remember the shower is for your baby. =0) You are one lucky girl. Have fun!

  • Most people have a shower for every baby now so don't feel weird about that. They probably just want to get to know you and show their support, just try not to be nervous.

  • Aw, I would probably be uncomfortable. But be glad they're nice enough to throw you a baby shower & be sure to thanks everyone for coming & the gifts.
