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?

Have you sent out invites?

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.

With my first, my mother threw me an all-out baby shower and I was 36 weeks..With my second, she made a dinner and everyone who wanted to attend had to bring a baby boy outfit (I was 37 weeks)..With this pregnancy, I had my 'dinner' last Sunday at 38 weeks..28 weeks is definitely not too late and will be good for you to be able to have the energy to get everything settled before baby comes!
