I was due in August with my first and had my baby shower in June. I just knew I'd be miserable later in the summer (and it was HOT!). I've made up a little registry for this baby only because it's my first boy after two girls. I'm not having a shower, but this way in case people ask, I have something that I can suggest.
I had a shower with my son when I was 6 months with family and then 7.5 mo with work friends. This time I am having a girl and my aunt is giving me a shower, but not until July! I will be atleast 8 months! Yikes, lol! They better not try to do the measuring game with me then! :) I am registered again, but from what happened last time, most people just buy what they want to. That is why I am already buying what I want and need, so anything else will just be a bonus. I believe each baby is just as important as the one before and each deserve a shower to celebrate them.
