Quoting Nicole (::" 22 weeks and up 10 pounds. Any ladies done their gift registry yet for a shower? I just got a rude awakening ... [snip!] ... have to plan dates for the shower! Im getting excited but nervous! How is everyone feeling? I feel pretty good for 22 weeks! :)"


I have a question!?! I it bad luck and what not to plan your own baby shower or help someone plan it? I am not sure how this all works. And is it better to register in store or online?! Also what are some good places to register?!

Typically I think friends or sisters (sil) throw it for you. Me being Vietnamese we don't do showers but throw a party when the baby is here. It's like a debut party. I don't have anyone to really invite (makes me sound like a loser!) and I hate to seem like I'm intruding on others so I'm thinking of just not doing anything. Don't know if you have buybuybaby stores near you but they seem to do better than babiesrus. I heard Burlington coat factory is affordable as well but I liked the selection and openness of buybuybaby. It's affiliated with bed bath & beyond and as long as the coupons are not expired you can use the coupons from bed bath at BBB.

Hopefully they can expand near you! The one I have to go to is just 30-45 mins away. They are going to end up opening one in the next city over but not until next year or so. I had heard good things about it but didn't think it would end up being anything special. I totally loved it! The layout for me is much more comfortable than being in babies-r-us. I was super lucky that the store I went to was so new that they were pretty dead. I had the best customer service experience. I had a girl just show us everything we wanted to see. She gave us a full run-down of strollers and car-seats and showed us how easy it was to set-up and take down, and swap out everything. At the babies-r-us i've been to, mostly everything is put up high and you have zero room to really push the strollers around. At BuyBuyBaby she told me to just take the stroller around the entire store to test it out. I know, i'm blabbing too much. xD

I think i will end up having 3 showers...I have a lot of people i want to invite/who want to come i dont want to have a HUGE shower and no time with certain people. My mom is throwing me one and my work is throwing me one and i thought about doing another one by myself if no one else wants to lol! and i think im going to register at Walmart, Target and Babies R Us. There are a few things from each place i like. Hahaha. Then there is a variety of places people can shop and wont have to travel all the way to a certain place if they are closer to another...

hubby's coworkers threw us a shower with dd2, and they've volunteered to do one for ds. Last time my MIL and AIL showed up, which was nice. Hopefully it'll be the same this time around plus I have like one friend in this state. Everyone else lives in NJ, PA. I still have baby lotion leftover lol I got so much of that. He was in LPN class during dd2 so his classmates and teacher threw him a daddy shower :) With dd1 there was no shower but FIL paid for 1 yrs worth of diapers. That was awesome esp since we didnt CD then. Online crib shopping tonight and heading to bed we're going to a Super Bowl party tomorrow. Hubby is like over the moon bc him and FIL's team- Ravens- are playing. *Fingers crossed* they win. Hubby even pulled the girls' Ravens cheerleading outfits out lol *eye roll* I don't get football, but it's nice to see him so happy. Night ladies!!!!
