Shower for 3rd child- tacky or no? - Page 2

post #21 of 23
I dont think its tacky at all. I want to do a shower but not really for gifts or anything just to celebrate.. I need to get my butt in gear though because by gosh Im doing this time while still pregnant...

I had one with my first.. but the only people that showed up were the hosts.. My son was already born and was a preemie and I didnt want kids around my baby so I asked for no kids.. Well people didnt like it so nobody showed up

With my second.. He was also born when the shower was done. It was just a few family members at that one.

This time.. I dont know who will show up but Im just going to make it a huge party.. Nobody has mentioned doing one and time is running out for me so Ill be planning the party soon.

I dont think its tacky at all even to ask for gifts though..

I think if you have the opportunity for a shower and you want it, go for it! I think this whole experience should be celebrated even if you've already been through it. It's a whole new human being growing in there after all!

I agree...not tacky. We are having a "sprinkle" instead of a shower offered by my best friend. My first shower was for DD over 4 years ago, and only 1 of my current girl friends was able to come, and only 5 family members. I have since donated almost everything or sold it to pay for infertility treatments. This baby is a miracle because I got pregnant as soon as we started adoption proceedings. She is doing a sprinkle instead because we already bought all of the big stuff recently and don't need much. I won't be adding registry cards, people know where to check if they really like, but I don't really expect gifts, though some filler stuff would be nice.

I agree the people who have them after having one 3 years or less ago are a bit annoying, but only is registries are mentioned.
