So excited.. I get a baby shower!

This is baby number 4, first little girl.

I honestly didn't expect to get a baby shower, and I was ok with that. But yesterday two of my friends said that they are going to do my shower for me!

I'm so excited. Not sure when it's going to be.. but they're going to hostess it at my church in the Fellowship Hall (both of them have very small houses and multiple animals).

I'm so excited.

So here is my next question.. I'm due Sept 23rd.... should we do it in July or in August?

Also, my one friend, Amanda, who is hostessing, has told me that she and her husband are doing a renewal of wedding vows, and since they didn't have a "real" wedding when they got married.. it's going to be the whole big shebang and she was thrilled when I offered to help with the planning and to do all the bouquets and boutonnieres (I did them all for my wedding and for my mother's vow renewal). She wants me to stand up as brides maid, and my husband has been asked to stand as a groom's man..... but get this.. their date is EXACTLY ONE WEEK BEFORE MY DUE DATE! LOL. Not sure how THAT'S going to work out.. guess we'll see. I'm super happy for them though.

God bless!

Oh wow! How exciting! Last year I had #4 and my friends gave me a shower. It was actually the first shower that I had ever had!

I would do the shower in July. Could your friends move their renewel sooner? I always have my babies a week before my due date. I wanted to go to IBLP's 2011 ati conference in TX a week before my baby was born. Thank the Lord we decided not to because I delivered him on the fist day of the conference!!

God bless you Mama! I am pregnant with #5 now. Due in late December.

Thanks so much. I'm super excited! That will make July a busy month.. .July 19th is my 10yr wedding anniversary, and July 23rd is my birthday. LOL But yeah, I was thinking July too.

As far as the wedding thing...I'm going to ask her if there is a reason they picked September 16th... like if it has some special meaning. Both DS2 and DS3 came ON their due dates. LOL So yeah.. I'm a little concerned with the timing.

God bless!

I would say July. That way you will have time to organize and put away all the gifts.

Thanks.

I sent a text to Allie, and asked about the last weekend in July or the first weekend in August. So it's going to be July 28th.

YAY!



God bless!

Re: So excited.. I get a baby shower!

How exciting! An end of July shower seems good to me (of course what do I know as a first-timer). It gives you plenty of time after the shower to purchase the things you still need.
If it were me I would regretfully decline participating in the wedding renewal if it's going to be one week before your due date. Hopefully your friends are understanding. It would be nice if they could move the date a couple weeks one direction or the other. Good luck with that!!
