I haven't had any this time. DH's work said they wanted to do one but we haven't heard anymore. My cousin said they wanted to do a small one (just close family on my mom's side) but I haven't heard anymore. I'm getting a bit anxious myself... I only have 3 weeks until we meet DS. I really just need to know if I need to make arrangements to purchase the stuff I still need or not.
I haven't had one and I'm not banking on it either. New town, meeting new friends and well over 1,000 miles from family. My parents gave us a $300 check and I've stretched that for most of the stuff I need. We're going it alone though for everything else that their check didn't cover b/c my inlaws haven't even expressed sending anything as small as a blanket or sleeper much less helping buy anything of significance. Not that I expect much from them, but I just thought she'd at least send a little gift for him. The way I see it though is I just need to focus on what we need currently. It's not like we need 3 packs of size 3 diapers or something or a closet full of 3-6+ months clothing. As long as we can get through 3 or 4 days at a time in the size he currently is wearing, that's all he really needs. ::sigh:: I am sad that he won't get the same attention and gifts that Abby did. Again - not for me, but for him...not that he'll know any different.
Evidently my SIL & MIL are throwing a meet the babies/stock the freezer shower after the boys arrive. Works for me...we still have all of DS#1 stuff & have already purchased all the duplicate things we needed used. (2 swings, double snap and go...etc)
I would really appreciate a full freezer.
Yep I had one back in July...

Didn't have one with dd, and not having one with this one either. That being said, my family on both sides have been amazing stepping up to buy stuff, even though it is not needed, it is certainly appreciated.

I havent had one yet but some friends are doing a "Girl's night" with drinks at one of the ladies' houses. They invited me but kept asking me what I needed for the baby. so I have a sneaking suspicion that it is actually a shower for me. They arent giving me any details just everyone keeps checking that I will be there that night.
Another friend keeps talking about giving me a shower but she is kinda crazy so I dont know if she will get it together or not. We know a whole different group of friends together so it would be different people. we will see, yesterday she was talking about doing October 1st.

I've actually had two o.o One was thrown by a friend, and the other by some coworkers. Some other coworkers want to throw me another one (eek), not sure if it'll happen or not with this baby trying to make an escape attempt last night!
