Maybe plan a Sip N’ See for a month after the baby is born? If anyone has anything they think you’ll need before the baby they could send it now. I’m sure people would love the opportunity to see the baby afterwards. I think 3 weeks before your due date would be fine but 2 might be pushing it.

Id tend to agree with @camrie: 3 weeks would probably be ok, but 2 is pushing it.  Id go with the Sip n See and have people drop off or ship gifts

I think it’s a good idea to wait until your doctor’s appointment; everybody’s different, though, so you just have to make the decision based on how you think you’re going to feel.

For me, we didn’t have a baby shower, but about 1.5 weeks before I had Addie (2.5 weeks before her due date) we drove two hours to another town to buy all of the baby stuff we thought we’d need.  We spent a half day walking around town, and then spent about 2 hours shopping for all the little baby stuff.  Then we drove back 2 hours that day.  I was dilated 1+ centimeters and effaced about 30% at that point.  It was fine for me, a little tiring but fine; I also had an easy time at the end of pregnancy, and I know it’s not that easy for everyone. It wasn’t a big deal for me, but I think if I had a harder pregnancy at the end maybe it wouldn’t have worked out so well.

I say go for it before the baby is born! Yes, the baby might come early.  But if not, it would be so nice to have that shower in advance as you eagerly await the baby’s arrival.  Obviously if you go early, everyone will understand if it doesn’t happen and then you can arrange something post baby.  I had a friend who had hers 2 weeks early and it was great!!  You will feel big, and maybe a little tired, but I would imagine have plenty of energy and excitement for your first baby shower 🙂

I would see how the doctors appointment goes and then plan! My baby girl is due in two weeks and if I had 30 people over giving me presents right now I’d be okay with it 😛 I think it all depends on you and your baby.

Good luck!
