Quoting Fatty McButterpants:" :twisted: It's tacky period to throw your own shower, the ammount of children comes into play because it's no one else's responsibility to help provide for you continuing to pop out kids."


what if someone else threw it for her? Would you still be against it even though its her 4th child and first babyshower?

Throwing your own shower is super tacky, IMO!

Quoting The Mrs:" Girl, if it's between this or no shower, do it! Everyone should get to experience a baby shower. And ... [snip!] ... may be a little easier. But if that's not happening and you need/want a shower, go for it. Every baby needs some diapers :)"

If everyone was as excited as her, she wouldn't need to throw her own :twisted:

I personally, would NOT attend a shower thrown for herself, by herself.

I personally see NOTHING wrong with having multiple showers for kids.. 1st 2nd 3rd but after the 1st you shouldn't be asking for gifts, but a party in honor of your new baby is fine ( cake, cookies, sandwhiches..whatever)

But I would NOT be attending a shower where the pregnant lady threw it herself. Sorry.

my friend had her first child kind of young and didnt get a shower and then she had two moys after that and did need a shower because obviously she had hand me downs from all the boys - then she got pregnant with her 4th and final baby which was a girl and I threw her a baby shower and her sister threw her one!

No, I wouldn't be against it then because it's not HER asking for gifts.
