@iheartnerds:  I’m due the first week of August (about the 5th) and I’ve heard that my baby shower is being planned for June 23rd.

It’s still early for us, but in my family showers are almost always held after the baby is born.

I just had mine on Saturday! I’m 29 weeks, but it was the only time I could have it since it’s the only time I’ll be in town during this pregnancy.

Hey due date twin! We haven’t decided on a date yet, still trying to figure that out, but in my circle of family and friends it’s pretty much the norm to have it about one month early. I’m really not concerned about finishing buying anything we need – I don’t think that would get done much earlier than a month out anyways because of how busy work will be keeping me prepping my department to not fall apart when I’m on maternity leave (that sounds bad but it’s true…they depend on me for WAY too much and are already kinda freaked about my leaving). But we’ll see what the people hosting it think.

Our EDD is Jan 9.

My big shower was November 3… so 9 weeks out from the due date.

I had a smaller shower with some friends from school the weekend before last… 5 weeks out.

I personally wouldn’t go much earlier than about 2-2.5 months out because you want to be nice and pregnant (but also not uncomfortably super pregnant). You also want time to get your registry rewards processed in time for you to buy some last minute things before the baby comes.

I’m due January 4th, and my shower was November 10, when I was 32 weeks.  We wanted to get it done before the holiday season started.

I’m due May 18, and my shower has been scheduled for the afternoon of March 24. It’s Palm Sunday, but my wedding shower also happened to fall on Palm Sunday (our wedding was also in May) and no one seemed to have a problem with it.. I wanted to have it before I’m so far along that I’m uncomfortable, and have time to finish the nursery after the shower and before the baby arrives…

I’m due March 11 and my shower is Jan 26. I wanted to have time to buy anything left from the registry and get it in the nursery.

@iheartnerds:  I think it’s perfect timing… and I think you’d have plenty of time to pick up the necessities and get everything in order for the LO.  Laughing
