I’m due July 19th and had wanted to have my shower in early June.
Unfortunately that won’t work because my mom and sister are leaving the country.
My mom will be back by early June but my sister wont…
I can now either do the second to last weekend in May or June 24th.
I really would rather June 24th, but do you think that is way too close to my due date to be planning on having a shower??
I’ve never been pregnant and I’m not super huge yet… but I’m gaining weight pretty averagely and the baby is growing pretty quick.
Any thoughts or advice are appreciated!

I think you’ll being ok if you have it later as far as birth goes, however, are you going to want to deal with all of that stuff in that short of a period of time?

I would do May. A friend scheduled her baby shower for 4 weeks before she was due…and she went into labor about 4 weeks before that! She attended her shower post-baby (baby is still in the NICU but doing very well!) I would say the sooner the better!

I would do May. I am due one day before yours and I am a teacher. Mine is scheduled May 6th. I figure that will give me, hopefully, a full two months to wash and sanitize everything I got as a gift and purchase anything that was not fullfilled that is a necessity prior to the babies arrival.

I would do it in May so you have more time to deal with getting your house ready for baby and buying additional items that you need but didn’t get at the shower. Also, I was a little confused about your poll option, what does your friend having do work have to do with your baby shower? Is it going to be held during normal work hours?

It will be on a Saturday over at my step-dads house.
We had just kinda originally thought that it would be nice if she was off work for the summer and we could enjoy a full week of planning and decorating over there.

I was born on the day of my mom’s baby shower (1 month before due date), so I HAD to vote for the other option lol!

I’m rolling the dice on my baby shower and going with a june date, we are doing sometime in mid to late June and our baby is due July 12th, but he’s measuring big and just overall a big boy, so I’m hopeful he won’t come too early.

I would do May. That gives you plenty of time to deal with everything, put it away or whatever you will need to do. I’m due the first week in August and decided to have my shower in the second week of June just so I have time and also if I need to purchase other things, that gives me time!
