You can really have it any time you want, but I have known people who had it in their 20 week range, baby was born premature and did unfortunately died. They had all the baby shower stuff at the house and it was really hard for them.

It is in poor taste to throw your own baby shower. Hell, you still need time to research and figure out what you need. People LOVE coming to baby showers when the mom is really close to popping cause they get to see the big belly.

Maybe etiquette says someone should though you a baby shower in month eight... but couldn't your own rule book open to the possibility of a "Surprise its a ____ party?"

Heh, waiting isn't always the best idea. I was going to have one at 8 months, hosted by a relative, but I gave birth at 28 weeks. I didn't mind not having a shower at all, as my daughter being healthy was actually the best gift. It just goes to show though that the best laid plans....etc!

no. Someone else should throw you a shower around 8 months preggo.

Do you mean host and throw your own shower? Etiquette normally suggests that someone else throw one for you. I think the timing is really fine whenever it suits you.
