I am 6 months pregnant and none of my friends or family have offered to throw me a baby shower. What’s the general etiquette? Am I meant to organise my own or are my friends/family meant to offer to organise one for me? Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Thank you.

  • I would have a word with a close family member and ask them to help you organise a baby shower.

  • A friend usually does buy you can do your own

  • Anyone can do your baby shower. If a friend or family member offers to do the organising, lucky you, go for it. But if you want to organise it, go for it too. I don’t think there’s a someone who ‘should’ do it

  • I organised my own if I didnt I would have had one,

  • No you should not have to organise your own, your mum, sister or close friend/s should. It is to celebrated you and also your baby on the way

  • You throw it darling!

  • My best friend & sister are organising mine.

  • i think the god parent should throw you a party

  • there are some good comments here

  • i dont have anyone to throw me one so i dont know

  • I had my mum and sister help me to it. I couldn’t let someone take the whole burden of organising and cooking all the food for it.

  • If you really want a baby shower & no one offers, I don’t see any problem with throwing your own :D

  • Did you end up having one for yourself or did someone offer to hold it for you?

  • a close family member of mine organised mine with my mum. she offered very early in my pregnancy and i was just like yes go for it. maybe you could mention it to your mum or a close friend or throw it yourself. if no one had offered to do mine i would of thrown one for myself. you could always do a couples one and your hubby could organise it.

  • how did it go :)
