Is it okay to throw your own babyshower? Motherof 4 Due May 21 (girl); 3 kids; Greensboro, North Carolina 10 posts
Mar 18th '11

Im pregnant with my 4 child...a girl, and I have 3 boys. This will be my last child and my very first baby shower. I wanted to ask is it appropriate to throw your own shower if no one has offered to have you one. With this being my first shower I didnt want to look silly throwing myself a shower. My boys are 9, 6, and 5, so its not like I have any hand me downs. My shower is April 9th and im due May 22nd. If you have any ideas or suggestions please feel free to comment. Thanks!

I dont see why it would be inappropriate.

If it's your fourth kid, I don't think you should have one at all! But that's just my opinion.

I threw mine and my bff basically threw hers (I bought almost everything but she threw it herself). So no there is nothing wrong with it.

For your fourth child?! Uh, yeah, it's rude with your first child it's just absoloutly horribly tacky with your fourth.

Usually I would agree but it's her first girl so she has no girl stuff so I don't see a problem with it.. though.. I am having my first girl and am not having one but whatever works.

So the first child is more important than the others? To me baby showers are about celebrating the birth of another life... not about the gifts...
