Did you have a baby shower for your 1st Pregnancy? 2nd? 3rd? Myself I haven’t but would have loved to have one but didn’t get the time too!

  • No I never had a baby shower.

  • I had a Baby Shower for my first baby but not for my second, although I’ve been to plenty of showers for second, third & even forth bubs. I think they’re a nice excuse to get together and hang out so happy to go along

  • I’m having a Sip and See instead. Never liked baby showers so refused to have my own. I don’t like attention, so when the baby is out all the attention will be on her instead. Plus it can be a lot more casual and chill (less preparation).

  • No and I’ve had 3 babies :)

  • Yep my sister and mum held one for me :) I was spoilt

  • We had a baby shower/bbq, we invited all our friends and family (girls and boys) to celebrate, eat great food and play some games. It was lots of fun and I liked it being non traditional but a little part of me wished a girlfriend would have organised an all girls celebration!

  • I had one for my second but not my first if i have another bub i would have one again was very fun and a great chance to catch up with friends and family before bubs born

  • No baby shower, would have liked to also but no time. If I had the time still not sure if I would, I’m very conscious about family and friends buying gifts for the shower then for the arrival etc. it can be expensive for others

  • I didn’t have one for any of my 3 kids. Wasn’t really interested.

  • I had a baby shower with my first but not with my second. It seemed a bit rude to ask people to buy gifts again.

  • yeah it can be really fun. it is great when your sister or mum organises it for you

  • I had one for bub1 but not for bub2 & won’t for bub3, it just didn’t feel right to have more than one.


  • I didn’t with my first but did with my second. Probably won’t do it again though, i just wanted to at least do it once :)

  • No i was pregnant with my twin girls and decided i didn’t want a baby shower. I find the expectation put on guests to baby showers i had been to really high, and the gift wish lists appalling. Baby showers in the past were about getting together and having fun, and a small gift was given so you had something to start with. Now i find it is about what people can get from friends and family. Then when the baby is born the expectation is there again. I decided i didn’t want this and opted not to have a baby shower. I was told by a few people at my work “your crazy , your having twins ,” and i informed them yes i am, and they are my cost not someone elses and you don’t have a baby shower for the presents.
