Both my mom and sister are throwing me (each a different) shower. My mom doesn’t have any date restrictions so her’s isnt an issue. Problem is my sister.
My sister who is in grad school as well as so many of the guests to the shower is wanting something no later than my 27th week. Reason being: everyone in my grad program is returning to campus (which is 1.5h away) and starting classes again as is my sister but my sister is actually in grad school out of state so she can’t plan my shower unless its ON or before July 15th (Sun). She leaves July 17th (Tue). I’d be 27w2d on my shower day.
Is 27 weeks too early? If so, any suggestions?

As long as you are showing, I think it’s fine.

i think its fine. my friend had her shower last July and her baby was due in December. i never thought anything of it. i think she may have had it in the summer because it was easier for some of her friends and family to travel

At 27 weeks, you’d be just about to enter the third trimester and I think that’s perfectly fine for a shower. I only get a bit funny about them if they are before the stage of viability and even those first couple of weeks of viability (24 – 25 weeks). After that, I don’t see anything wrong with it. And of course, given the circumstances with your sister/friends and heading back to school, I think it is more than appropriate in this situation!

Mine would have been around 27-28 weeks, but had to get pushed back until 36 weeks because of scheduling conflicts. I think 27 weeks is fine.

I think especially where it’s a specific group of people, it will be absolutely fine. I think my shower was a 32 weeks, which is really only 5 weeks beyond that. You’ll definitely be showing and it will be nice for you to start getting organized. I have to say that we are totally overwhelmed right now with going through all our shower gifts, ordering what we didn’t receive, and trying to finish projects in her room. Time goes by quickly!!

I think it’s fine… Better than my shower… my baby was there!
My mom decided on the week before I was due, but baby decided to be born on that day. It had to be cancelled and reschuled the week after (the day he was actually due!) My baby’s father was the only man there because he took care of baby while I opened the gifts!

@chrispygal: you’re right about getting stuff ready. I think that’s the 1 positive thing about it…i’ll get to wash his clothes and set-up any nursery items I get sooner rather than later!
@happyface: LOL! That’s hilarious. Aw, at least baby got to enjoy the party too;)

You know the funny part? I didn’t even know I was having one… but I guess baby knew before me and wanted to be there, got to give him credit, all the gifts were for him anyways! LOL

I had my shower at 28 weeks and it was fine. I still felt good at that point and since I had to travel for my shower it was best that I did it then. A few weeks later I was too uncomfortable to travel for so long. I am glad that I did have my shower then.
