A baby shower, an event every mother should have to celebrate every child. I have seen so often that we spend so much time wonder what is right to everyone else that we forget pregnancy is about celebrating the baby. So, let me start by saying forget what everyone else thinks and do what feels right!
I am sure I have said this before, but each child is a blessing, another child opens your heart for a little more love. It allows you to love in a way you would have never thought possible. When planning a baby shower, you are sharing your love for this child with friends and family. I’ve heard that the perfect time to start your registry is about 20 weeks.
Notice how I said that is what I have heard, there is no book that tells you when the right time is. You only have the opinions of what those around you want and what your gut is telling you. By then you are half way through your pregnancy, you may have done research on the products you would like and well the baby will be joining your family soon.
A baby shower is a celebration to welcome a blessing
A baby shower is an opportunity to share the joy you are feeling with your family. The registry is fun, it brings you joy. Being able to walk around a baby store or if you are like me going on Amazon to sign up online is exciting. You get to click and all anything you like to your cart. You’ll get to see as items you want are bring purchased. Plus, I forgot to add you’ll even a gift for starting your registry.
The next time someone tells you that you shouldn’t be starting a registry so soon kindly tell them to bug off. Don’t worry about what the norm is or what everyone else wants, do what makes you happy. Enjoy the pregnancy from start to finish, enjoy the highs and lows. Embrace the pregnancy and all that comes with it because there are many who wish they could be blessed with giving birth.
