    Congrats on the baby! Heck yes I would still register! Whatever is left on the registry you usually get a certain amount off (10% usually) that you can use on the items.

    I’m not having a shower for religious reasons but still registered as people want to send us gifts when the baby is born and want to know what we want/need.

    Do it.  People will want to get you something and then you can direct them there.

    I would regardless of a shower for the following reasons:

    1. Some people will want to get you something so make sure you’re getting those things you want/need.

    2. Use it as a checklist of things you still need. There are things on our registry I don’t expect people to buy – but it helps me keep track.

    3. Registry completion discounts! Why not get 15% off something you’re going to buy anyway?

    @sarahcisme:Peple love buying baby gifts. Even if you don’t want to have a shower you can have a sip and see. People can bring gits then too.

    I am interested in this topic as well, because I’m in the same boat. I am probably not having a shower either. My best friend just moved to another country and won’t be back for a year, a lot of my other friends are in grad school while working and I don’t want to stick them with the headache or expense of throwing a shower. I have no relatives that live in my state (even my parents are 400 miles away), and my husband’s family is similarly scattered. I might have a real small work baby shower, but that’s it.

    Anyways, my mom said her family will still want to send presents, so she really wants me to register. I am not entirely comfortable with the idea of registering though- I didn’t with my wedding and wouldn’t even think of it now except my mom wants me to. I won’t have to do anything about it until mid summer at the earliest though, so I have lots of time to think it over.

    We didn’t have a shower, and I still registered.  It was helpful to have a checklist of sorts of things we needed, and we bought of the stuff off the registry after we received our completion discount coupon.  That 10% goes a long way when you are buying so much stuff!
