I have a little boy who is currently 13 mos and we just found out we are expecting-twins! Immediately one of my close friends said to me she wanted to throw me a full shower because I'm going to 'need so much stuff'. I have incredibly mixed feelings on this! We had such an elaborate shower the first time around and everyone was very generous. I hate the idea of looking as if we're looking for hand outs. I've been doing research on the topic and read a lot of people like the idea because every baby deserves to be celebrated. That thought process is very cute but still I don't feel it's anyone's responsibility to provide us with baby essentials. My husband and I already agreed we would start a mock registry so we could take advantage of the BRU complete your registry coupon but we are NOT advertising that to anyone! Also as this was a surprised pregnancy my husband will be deploying and miss everything! Even the birth! My friend says this reason alone I deserve another shower to help support me. I reached out to other friends for opinions and everyone is split down the middle. Some say yes shower every baby especially twins and others say I'm right to feel this way because its tacky for a second shower. I am VERY conflicted! Please help!
