baby showers planned?

I told my mom I didn't want a shower this time, I would rather go on a shopping spree than spend the money on a party. I have a big family so by the time we buy food and everything it ends up being like $500.

Is Anyone planning any showers, I still love to hear about themes etc.

Re: baby showers planned?

My friend really wants to throw a baby shower for me.... I'm hoping that she forgets. This will be my 4th baby, so I really don't see the point, and so many people get their panties in a bunch about how tacky it is to have a shower for second, third, fourth children. I have 3 girls, so if this little bitty turns out to be a boy, we will just hit up our local thrift store and stock up on clothes.

I'd love a shower but I'd have to throw my own. Anyways, I think a shopping spree would be more beneficial financial wise than a shower!!

Not planning on one. Third baby and all. My mom is planning a diaper shower for my sister (3rd as well) but I have cloth diapers so not a good fit for me lol.

No shower for me either. This is number 3 and my second girl so I don't even really *need* anything.

I've never had a shower. I'm glad though because I'm a minimalist and getting gifts can actually stress me out, since I find it's often stuff I don't want/need, but I have to look super happy to be grateful.
Two friends of mine had babies wishing the past year and they each had a frozen food and prayers shower. So everyone brought something frozen for them to eat after baby came, and we all signed up to prayer for them in certain days for the few weeks before and after their due date. That's a shower I'd love to have

Re: baby showers planned?

my sister wanted to throw me one..because first baby was a boy..and this is a girl lol. I was pretty neutral on doing it..but figured why not. She wasn't able to be here for my first shower..so I think she wanted to be a part of this one. I don't know entirely what they're doing..just a shabby/chic style lol!

My SIL offered to throw me one but she hasn't brought it up in a couple of months. I doubt it'll happen.

I would love one but no one will give me one. It's my 5th living child. I guess after celebrating the first couple no one cares anymore?
