Is it tacky to throw your own baby shower?

I don’t really have any family, or friends for that matter. I have a few people from work. I consider friends, and that’s it. I was just talking to my future sister-in-law about having a baby shower in mid-April and how I didn’t understand why her mom would throw out that the sister is planning it and not me. The sister-in-law said, “Because it’s really trashy and tacky to plan your own baby shower. I’ll plan the games for it, but that’s it.” If you don’t have anyone to throw one for you, do you honestly think it’s trashy or tacky to plan your own baby shower…?

I had to plan my own… My own family never thought of it…

No it wouldn’t be. My best friend threw hers

No and I think that women that shame other women like that are the trashy and tacky ones.

Wtf lol thats the dumbest shit ive ever heard im sorry lol
Im a first time mom.
And i planned my own baby shower. Some Family helped in different ways.

No it’s not trashy or tacky. I’m sorry you were made to feel like that. If no one else is doing it, then by all means go ahead. I mean I never really felt anyone was actually throwing one. It was just a baby shower.

I dont think so at the end of the day it’s for the baby not for you

No, your sister in law sounds like the trashy one. It’s your baby and you do whatever you want.

There is no rules for nothing party’s get togethers . If you wan to make one I’m sure everyone will understand. And go and have a good time . I don’t have fam and friends either . And I’m pregnant . I don’t think any one is going to throw me a baby shower never have … I don’t plan on having one . But if I did I’d make it my self and invite people …

Good day everyone, am here to testify about the greatest spiritual healer that helped me believe in life again after my husband had left me for another woman.
Life has been so difficult for me these past few months and I had given up on myself knowing that I will not find love or true happiness again. My husband left me for another woman of whom he was working with at the same station and this really left me with no more reason to live and i even once had thought of giving up on my own life but decided to give myself another chance to live, so i decided to contact my elder sister and tell her of what i was going through. My elder sister told me to contact Mama TINA after Mama TINA helped her bring back her husband who had left her for one year and went and stayed with another woman but when Mama TINA did a love spiritual for her, the husband came back in 2 days and from that time they are so happy and so in love and we all see it. So my sister sat me down one day and talked to me as woman, to woman and told me I should do everything in my power to get my boyfriend back because he had also broken up with me after I caught him with another woman. I was so hurt when I knew my boyfriend was having an affair with another woman but my sister told me not to cry and be strong and that if I still love my man I should make sure I get him back from that woman. I contacted Mama TINA and told her my problem and she made a love and binding prayer for me and in one day of the prayers my boyfriend called me and begged for my forgiveness and promised never to hurt me again. We are back together so much in love and recently he proposed to me and we are getting married soon. I thank u Mama TINA for doing a strong love spiritual prayer you made for me.
You can call or whats-app Mama TINA on +27673788758 in case you need any spiritual help for am sure many of you out there are in this same situation or even worse.

No I don’t I have been pregnant 2 times the first time the person backed out . So I never had one then.
The 2nd time another person didn’t come threw . For the day that was planned and I had some family coming out of town . So I had to throw it together last min in a garage . If I was to have another one I would think about throwing one . But I honestly have no one that is close to me family or friend wise . To have one

No absolutely not. I was made to believe this for my first kid, and was in tears (thanks hormones) at 30 weeks cause none of my friends were planning one… my amazing husband contacted a mutual friend and asked her if she’d help him throw me one.

This time, I’m planning my own with the help of an amazing new friend. Of course now I’ve had to deal with people shaming me cause it’s trashy to have one for a second child cause “you already have everything leftover from the first”… not after 9 bloody years I dont :roll_eyes:

There is always gonna be someone out there quick to tell you you’re doing the wrong thing, especially as a parent. Stuff them, and do what makes you happy. I hope you have an amazing baby shower :heart::heart::heart:
