34 weeks or so. And you shouldn't be depending on others for your baby's things, so most of your stuff should be ready regardless..

Yeah but you can't expect others to be buying you such expensive things. And some people feel gift cards are impersonal. I didn't get any. And a lot of people bought what they wanted even though I had two registries. Just dot get your hopes up and make sure you save to get the bigger stuff.

Mine was at 35wks. We had already bought all the big stuff ourselves, we waited to buy a lot of clothes because that's what most people give at baby showers.

not worried about the crib for a while. my mom is getting us a bassinet. we will get the stroller once my husband has been with his new job a bit longer. trust me its all in the world. I'm only 19 weeks right now.

I'm having mine at 30 weeks. I dont have a history of preterm labor, but you just never know when your LO is gonna be ready. I want to have everything here and done by 36 weeks. I figure having the shower at 30 weeks gives me 6 weeks to get everything else I want/need.
