Did you regret not having a baby shower?

I’m not having a baby shower and it kinda makes me sad when I think about it because I hate this entire pregnancy. I’ve been alone and I feel like celebrating it is just a joke. Has anyone else not had a shower and regretted it?

No, always thankful for what was received. I needed any and all help I could get. It helped me not resent due to being able to have things for baby the I originally resented for because I couldnt afford on my own.

You could also have a baby shower after you have ur baby! If you do regret not having one before there’s always after when you feel emotionally better

I didn’t have 1…i regret not having those memories. And the gifts would have really helped. We are fine tho. most close friends got me a gift and just gave it to me randomly…also lots of handmedowns from a family friend. W

We had our showers after they were born. We got awesome gifts and everyone loved having the baby around.

I had one the first time. My second I didn’t. Don’t regret it.

I had a shower for my first born but not with the other two. No, I don’t regret it.

I regretted not having one with my other kids so I am determined to have one with this pregnancy, especially since it’s my last.

I didn’t have one with either of my other 2 kids…this one is no different.

Girl, you need to have one! Once that baby is born, you will change your mind about everything. It’s the greatest blessing.

I didn’t have one and I didn’t care after lmao

My baby shower with my son was over the top and expensive and only a couple people showed up so it was a waste of money and food. I didn’t have a baby shower with my daughter. I don’t regret it. Saved myself from getting my feelings hurt and saved all that money too.

yes … i had one for my first daughter and my son but not my youngest daughter and i regret it to this day (shes now 12)

That’s a life inside you and it deserves to be celebrated. You might feel alone but your baby has you and you have your baby, so you’re not alone. You have to try to look at your pregnancy positive and a blessing. Have a baby shower and celebrate the life growing inside you. Best of luck mama. :heart::heart:

I would definitely have one for your first… the gifts help tremendously. I had my son 3 months ago and have yet to buy any new wipes or clothes for him.

Also the memories of that day will be something you and your child can look back on in the future as well…

I’ve had showers with both my babies, and they were not worth it. BUT I’ll have one for my next because even though itll probably be the same outcome I still want to celebrate my baby like I did my others.

My first shower sucked :sob: and I didn’t have a second one because I was afraid no one would come

I didn’t have one for any of my kids. It did kind of suck, but only because I was completely jealous of everyone else who had one…plus, all the free baby stuff that they would get, because I had to pay for everything for my kids myself. Basically, it upset me because of my own selfishness. Not saying that it effects anyone else that way, only saying that is my own personal experience and thoughts I had.
