Nope. We had 3 days notice from the time we found out about her and the time we brought her home. Because we were adopting, family members didn't want to spend the time and the money on a shower in case the birth mother changed her mind. So I kind of got "screwed" out of a shower.
Yes, for my first born I had a girl baby shower but 4 weeks until my due date, I found out I was having a boy...I was sooooo sad. I had so much girl stuff....
my second son, I didn't have anything...
Yea we did and it was actually fun all I did was eat the whole time and opened my presents before half the people arrived
Yes but we all had to cram in the lower half of my in laws house. My mil is a real piece of work so I didn't want all my family members around her house so I had the shower away from them... my fil showed his face once then disappeared. My mil stayed and helped out, cooked food and everything. I was really surprised. I guess she's just bi-polar. The shower was nice :) But if I could do it all over again, I would've had it upstairs like I first wanted to.... my dh said she would've gotten over it ;)
Yes with both my kids.
Nope, it's not part of the British culture. Or at least it wasn't when I had my first dd 20 years ago but it may have grown in popularity since then.
Yes! It was amazing! After 2 years of trying and many IVF cycles, my babys hower was perfection! My mom did it which means it HAD to be perfect. I got absolutely everything on our regisrty and then some. My BFF surprised me from Florida (we are in NJ). And it was a surprise. I had no idea until that day. I had so many presents all I did was open them! I didnt even have time to eat anything! I took a couple bites from my present-opening seat. Lol
It was awesome. And for my 2nd, nothing. We dont believe in more than one shower. Plus I was having another girl.
