    Just spoke to my sister and she wants to throw me a baby shower yay! Well more of a get together than anything as we are sorted for baby things for the most part.

    Thing is, she wants to do it the Saturday after I finish work when I'll be 38 weeks. Am I pushing it having it that late? It's my first bubs so doubtful ill go early, although she is breech at the minute.

    So, anyone had a late shower? Am I mad for thinking ill be ok at 38 weeks?

    Mine is next week at 36 weeks. If you're working up until 38 I guess it will be a nice way to finish and look forward to baby's arrival!
    A few weeks ago I thought I might go into labour early due to being really ill and in hospital etc and the baby shower did cross my mind, but I just thought 'oh well if baby is here it will be a chance for everyone to meet baby instead!!' xx

    We just threw a shower for one of my friends at 38+2, her baby came at 40weeks exactly. It is cutting it close but it's one of those things you can;t really predict. If that's the earliest time that's convenient, I'd say go for it.
