    I think those sound fine! A friend of mine had a baby shower scheduled for 4 weeks prior to her due date and she ended up giving birth 6 weeks early. She just brought the baby to the shower, haha 🙂

    My shower is this Sunday and ill be 34 weeks. I think that’s a pretty normal time to have a shower. You’re fine!

    I had all my other showers early… I was about this pregnant with my first and second when I had my shower.  With #3 I had the shower like a month before my edd.  And with this baby, my friend wants to throw mw a shower the end of July or first weekend in August… I am due at the end of August/begin of September.  I think it’s late but I don’t mind… I didn’t want a shower this time around so I have no say.

    I don’t think it’s too late at all. I had my shower when I was 33.5 weeks and I thought it was perfect

    @amw511s:  I’m due 1/1 and my shower is 10/19. Very early to avoid the holidays and make sure my sister can make it.

    That seems reasonable to me.  My friend just gave birth to her daughter 2 weeks early and her shower was scheduled for the day she ended up delivering I think so she missed it 😛  They still had the party anyway without her as everything was ready to go.  Made for a funny story though!

    I’m due September 3rd and my shower is on August 3rd.  Everyone I know with a baby had their shower 4-6 weeks before their due dates so it seems to be the norm in my area.
