I only had a baby shower for my first. I was around the 36 week mark. I think? Hard to remember, it was 20 years ago. All I remember is having cake. My mom's friend threw it for me.

I think I was 27 weeks when I had mine, I just had finger foods. Like cookies, a cracker tray, some chocolates, those tiny bbq sausages, cupcakes & a welcome baby cake of course. (:



I am very glad I had mine early, I had a lot of stuff to go through & since I hit 30 weeks I have been super lazy. So IMO it is best to do it early.

I had my shower at 35 weeks.



As far as food, we probably had at least 20 different dishes total including appetizers and dinner food. But my shower was a Caribbean/American mix so we had to have plenty of both kinds of food.



Plus cake, cupcakes and cookies

That's why i was thinking its better to have it early.. Im not gonna be use to being big at all since i had LO at 25 weeks. Plus it will give me more time to prepare.
As far as foods. I was thinking pizza but i was wanting something else to go with it?

I can't really help there.. mines a secret. I assume it'll be mostly little snack type things though.

I know nothing about mine lol I'm not allowed to know. I just know where it'll be and what day. I don't think they've sent out invites yet, they only came up with the date like a week or so ago. It'll be Dec. 9th.

I was 30 weeks when I had my shower this time because it was in summer and everyone was busy and I wanted it done before kids went back to school.
