among the people I know everybody has the baby shower after the baby is born mostly so they know if they are shopping for a girl or boy

You will still need stuff for the baby when he comes home in August. Just take pictures of the baby with you so everyone can see him, or wait until he comes home and have a welcome baby party for him.

No not at all. My baby shower was planned for Sat and I gave birth Fri. I couldn't even attend so my husband did in my place.

My nephew was also a premie and we had his baby shower after he was born and still when he was in NICU as well.

Thanks its just some of my friend was saying it was kinda weird but my family and I didn't think it was weird because we do need some of the stuffs. But one of my friend said the same thing just make like its a baby party for him for being born. And she made me feel good. It's just I felt a little hurt inside because the way my others friends was saying how weird it would be to have a baby shower after the fact that I gave birth. But thank you for that more of support in words. And understanding
