How far along should you be to have a baby shower?

What’s an appropriate time (weeks of being pregnant) to have a baby shower … I just found out an old friend is having a girl, and I’m just so excited for her!!! She has two boys already, and when I found out she was pregnant, IDK why I started saving ideas on Pinterest for a baby shower, and it was all girl themed related, and now that it’s confirmed, I’m stoked! I’m asking because my baby showers were a day or two before I gave birth.

My first child I had my baby shower on memorial day and I had my son on June 6. That was a little bit too close LOL. You want to make sure you have time to set things up and wash them. :+1::blush::heartpulse:

I had a baby shower in March and I was due beginning of May… it gave me about a month to set up and go through everything!

I always did mine around 7-7 1/2 months then I have a month or so to get anything else needed.

I say around 30 weeks. That way mama is still feeling good and has plenty of time to go through stuff, wash it, and put it all away without a panic.

When ever you decide you want your baby shower

7-8 months pregnant. Dont want to have it to late.

I had mine around 30 weeks

I was 29 weeks at mine

I planned mine for 5 weeks before my due date and went into labor the day of my shower.

I had mine at 32 weeks. I wanted to get everything all set up and organized before I hit 36-37 weeks and I would be all fat and exhausted haha. Good thing too, had baby early at 36 weeks.

I was around 30 weeks

I was 28 weeks on my first pregnancy and 36 weeks on my second xx

I always had them ( I had 4 showers) after I found out sex and by then my morning sickness was subsiding and I wanted to be around people but I dont think there is really a wrong time to have one

I had mine at 32 weeks, 3 weeks before I had an emergency csection.

I always had mine after my babies were born. (Just because I wanted to make sure babies were here and healthy). I don’t think there is really a right or wrong time.

I had mines at 5 months and sooo happy I did. Gave me so much time to get what I needed and not have to stress about money having to buy things last min, plus I was/am single and work crazy hours and went into labor early so I’m very happy I had the 3 months to get things ready :pray:

Whenever you want, I suppose. I’ve even been to baby showers that the baby was present for (a month old, but still).

Ive never had one for any of my kids…is it too late lol they are 4 and 2 yrs old and 1 week old

We planned mine at 28 weeks and i ended in the hospital 5 days later, had her at 30 weeks. So happy we had it just in time or I wouldn’t have been able to attend lol. I think around 6 or 7 months is usually good, gives the parents enough time to set things up, make returns/exchanges, buy the stuff they weren’t gifted.
