Just wanted to add I'm 30 weeks so I really don't have anymore time to wait
Go for it! There is nothi g wrong with doing it yourself, you get to pick everything, and invite anyone you want =)
I'm doing mine. I see nothing wrong with it. :)
Thanks for your replys ladies and its nice to hear I'm not the only one who isn't getting a shower thrown for them. I don't know if its the hormones or not but I've been so upset about it!
Im doing mine too with the help of a friend.
I personally think all babies should be celebrated but my family is old school and they believe it's tacky to have any after the first baby. This is my first and I'm super excited for my upcoming shower! I know that if i have more babies that my family wont throw another one though.
I'm going to plan and throw mine! I say go for it. Maybe your friends/family don't realize you want one. But if you initiate things, there's no doubt your loved ones will jump on board and help you plan things. And if you throw your own party, it will be exactly how you want it. Congrats to you!
I think it's perfectly acceptable to throw one for yourself. Like you said, it is your first boy so you will need different things than you have with your daughters. I always thought that rule of thumb, you can have another shower or "sprinkle" as I've heard it be called for your next child if the sex is diff. We did that for my sister last yr for her boy after she already has a 6yr old girl. Especially with that age difference, you don't have alot of stuff anymore that you need. And like others said, if you have it yourself it will be just what you want. My mother is throwing mine, and not to sound mean I don't really trust her. I try to get involved but her and my husband won't let me. They keep telling me to sit back and relax. I just want things done so I like it and enjoy myself. Every time I mention something that I want to my mom she turns her nose up at it or has a snide remark. I'm honestly kinda nervous for it, I have 3 more wks till shower date...
