I was just wondering when it was a good time to have a baby shower. I'm only  6 weeks, so I know its too early right now, but wanted to know when I should have my sister plan one.

I liked the fact that mine was after my daughter was born. I got to show her off that way. :)

A month or two before your due date:)

A month or so before your due date is the norm I think. That's how mine were.

I had my first one at 24 weeks. I loved being prepared. Whatever I didn't get at the shower that I still needed we had time to go out and buy before he arrived.

Definately after you find out what you are having (if you are finding out what you are having.) so that the guests know what they are buying for :)

Around 6 months...early enough to (hopefully) not run in to going in to labor & having baby, and also time to return & pick up things you still need.  Plus, you won't be sooo uncomfortable while doing all the shower stuff.

I think that's a great idea. Thank you.

I like them around 7 months. That gives you time to get things you may still need.

i say anytime during your second trimester because i had mine later and i didnt get much then i had my baby 3 weeks later i had to rush for missing things so id have it early so you can shop after and its your shower when you feel ready go for it

If your having one, i would say between 30-35 weeks, closer to 35. Unless of course your having twins or more, then id plan a little earlier
