    I live 1200 miles from my family and I just do not have the time/money to be making that trip. If I do have a shower it will most likely be friends at work who throw it, but I doubt that will happen since all of them are pregnant and due before me.

    No one could do an August date for mine (which is totally fine, I’d rather not look whalelicious) so we went with 31/32 weeks.

    One of my best friends is throwing it at a hotel. About 30-40 people on the guest list. I expect about 25 at the shower.

    When are you having your shower(s) in terms of pregnancy weeks? I’ll be 33 weeks. We planned it around when my sister would be able to come down.

    Who is throwing your shower(s)? My mom, SIL, and good family friend.

    How many people are invited? We sent out 53 invites, but it’s a couples shower so about twice that. We’re not expecting them all to come… but it’ll be pretty big.

    Any theme/pictures? Well, we’re having it at a minor league baseball stadium. We’re having a girl, so that’s not the theme, it’s just the location and we figured it would be good for the boys to have something they like to do when we open presents. Plus I’m not a fan of the traditional showers with games.

    I’m in the probably not getting a shower group. My husband and I registered for some stuff in case people want to get us something, but I’m using it more as a list to help me be organized. We have already bought our crib, changing table, linens, and a couple of outfits.

    If there is a “shower”, it will probably just be family. I told my mom if she wants to have something, we can do it out at the pond, and make it more of a BBQ thing, no gifts necessary. I don’t have a ton of friends left in the area I grew up in – we all moved away, and I haven’t made friends with anyone up here well enough that I’d be comfortable inviting them to an event that’s sole purpose is to give me presents. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My shower will be at about 33 weeks.

    My sisters are throwing it at one of their houses in the Boston area. We live in Philadelphia. Could be a little tricky getting all the stuff back home in our car, but my mom will be visiting a few weeks later so I plan to ask her to bring down what didn’t fit in our car.

    About 40 people are invited. We expect about 25. Majority of invitees are my cousins (who will probably go in on gifts together), then my friends, then my mom’s friends, then DH’s family. I am hesitant about inviting DH’s family altogether, but that is a post in and of itself.

    No theme that I know of –my sisters are keeping the details to themselves. But there will be cake!

    This isn’t my shower but I’m throwing one for my Future Sister-In-Law so I guess I’m qualified to answer…

    When are you having your shower(s) in terms of pregnancy weeks? She’s due in early August and her shower is in late June so I guess around 35/36 weeks.

    Who is throwing your shower(s)? Myself and my Future Mother-In-Law are throwing my FSIL’s shower. Her sister and mother are throwing her another shower for their side of the family (they live a few states away).

    How many people are invited? 20 or less.

    Any theme/pictures? We’re having a jungle theme to match their nursery.

    My Mom is throwing my shower and there are 50 invited but I think about 30 will come. It will most likely be a Princess theme! But I dont get to know the details! I just know the time and place. ๐Ÿ™‚

    When are you having your shower(s) in terms of pregnancy weeks?

    I voted for 32 weeks.  I’m not too sure yet, I just know it will be some time in July.  (I’m due mid September)

    Who is throwing your shower(s)?

    My mom and my sister-in-law

    How many people are invited?

    I’m not sure.  Maybe about 35 people or so.  Probably all the ladies who were invited to my bridal shower.

    Any theme/pictures?

    We find out in 5 days the sex of the baby!  So I guess we’ll go from there!

    Who is throwing your shower(s)? My sisters are planning it, it will be at my mom’s house

    How many people are invited? I’m not sure yet.  Probably 50ish…my husband has a big family!

    I will probably also have a work shower in June (before school gets out).

    When are you having your shower(s) in terms of pregnancy weeks?
    Mine was a week ago (I was 32-33 weeks). I think any later and there wouldn’t be much time to exchange things or if you have gift cards to use them online (and have to wait for shipping).

    Who is throwing your shower(s)?
    One of my girlfriends from college and my mom.

    How many people are invited?
    We invited around 40 and ended up with about 24 – it was a good size since it was at our house (which was super convenient especially when we got big stuff like a car seat and high-chair).

    Any theme/pictures?
    Teal and brown – which are kind of my nursery colors. And birds…just because. ๐Ÿ™‚ Pics below!

    Invite:

    My hostesses:
    (oh and I didn’t wear any of the dresses I made everyone vote on…oops)

    Decorations:

    CAKE!

    We got these cute washcloth “cupcakes”:
