Baby Shower Platypus Due March 17; 1 child; Massachusetts 2633 posts

I'm not pregnant (yet ;-) ) but I want others' opinions on having a baby shower for the 2nd baby. I was 18 when i was pregnant with DD, If I get pregnant soon I will be 23 or 24 and engaged not doing it alone, so this time it's very different. I have a lot of girl stuff I saved from DD, so if I have a girl, I would just register for diapers and little things. If I have a boy, even then it wont be a whole ton of stuff.. Do you think its tacky? I want it more for the celebration than anything... Gifts are great, but I always wanted to have that party =) . Also, SO has family in another state... So I guess we would have to have two? =-/ . I just don't want it to come off as needy or greedy...

I had one for each of my living kids. One boy, one girl.

If I have another I'm doing a "girls day" with just brunch and pedicures for me and a few friends a couple weeks before I'm due and then a welcome baby party after.
