So my dh and I our having our first baby together. I have a 5 year old DD that I had at 18 and I was single (her dad left when I was 4 months pregos).

Is it okay for my mama and friend to throw a baby shower since this is my second and a boy? Or tacky?

My youngest and middle child are 5 years apart. My family threw me a very small baby shower while I was visiting over the summer. I would have had a full blown shower if I lived closer. My sil threw one after I had my daughter. I was on bedrest and she came 4 weeks early. I also had one with my oldest.

It's fine. There is a large enough gap in your kid's ages. Plus, this is hubby's first baby. I'm sure his side of the family, especially, would like to be able to celebrate.

Awesome! My dh thought I was crazy for thinking it was okay lol! Who doesn't want to be showered with much needed gifts after being pregnant for 9 months? I need something new to nest with lol

I don't see why it would be tacky. Seems fine to me.

One for each gender is perfectly fine...

Now...when you're on your 6th dd, and expecting a baby shower (like my cousin), I'll laugh in your face.

My cousin wants me to throw her a baby shower...she has 5 girls (all dif fathers, 2 of which are in prison fo drug trafficing) and shes pregnant with her 6th dd....I laughed and told her to quit smoking crack, because it ain't happening.
