Is a shower for your second child tacky? Whatabout third?

Whatabout if you know its a different sex?

 

I didnt get a shower or even after birth little get together for my ds because he was baby 2 and I expect the same with my third one. My family just doesnt think anyone but the first baby needs a shower. I fully understand the third one because we already have a boy and a girl and dont need anything really but diapers. Someone threw my cousin a diaper shower for her 5th baby and the ages of children were very close. I dont want it for gifts at all but I thought it would have been nice to have a little get together for my ds and even this one when he/its (not finding out the sex) was/is born. Instead everyone acted like he wasnt as important because he wasnt the first. People kept asking if I was doing anything and I would always respond "Its tacky for the mother to throw a shower for herself, its like saying I expect presents, so unless someone else is throwing it, no i dont think we are having one but you can come to the hospital after if youd like." I do think that a mother throwing the shower or the bride throwing the bridal party etc.. is tacky.

 

What are your oppinions? Did you get a shower for more than your first?

Everyone here has a baby shower for each kid. Its about celebrating the new baby and that is never tacky.

 Thats what I think but I dont want to throw one for myself lol thats awefull. Maybe we will plan a meet the baby party afterwards since we arent telling anyone the sex.

I have had a shower for all 3 of my children.

the first and 2nd are both girls (3 1/2 years apart)

2nd and 3rd (boy) are 16 months apart.

I never threw my own showers. My mom threw #1, cousin threw #2, and MIL threw #3
