Whats the earliest you or someone you knew had a baby shower? My friend is throwing me a shower for this baby since its our first girl and right now we're thinking July 20th, I'll be about 34 weeks then? If I'm remembering right. I'm 20 weeks today, I'm just thinking of how impatient I am to get her stuff and start getting it all ready for her and if I'll be able to be patient and not buy anything more until then. With my first LO my Mother thru my shower when I was like 25wks cause she wanted to have it in the summer time outside with a bbq since LO was due in December, but that's not the case this time.

I would think anytime after a pregnancy reaches viability is fine.

Around where I live at the moment, they wait to have the shower until after the baby is born. Every now and then you'll hear of it before but rarely. I think 34-36 weeks is perfect. Have fun!

I had mine exactly at 25 weeks. I had to travel to Michigan and it was really the only time we'd have.
Lucky we had it then too. At 29 weeks I went into preterm labor and was put on strict bed rest. I was constantly in the hospital to have my contractions stopped until I gave birth at 36 weeks.
