My husband is military and we live far way from any family. Well Im 7 months pregnant and we're starting to think about a baby shower. I dont have many CLOSE friends, I have co-workers and some casual friends who would come to a baby shower but I dont have anyone really close to me that would go through the hassle to throw me a baby shower. Would it be wrong of me to throw my own??

Yes, I think it would be wrong for you to do it, but might you ask a co-worker to go in with you, for one? You could use 'her' place and you could supply food.

RE: Can I throw my own...

Um, tacky would be the word for that.

If people want to buy you some stuff for the baby, they will. Asking someone else to throw a shower for you is tacky, as well.

Tell your family you want a baby shower the next time you're on leave.

RE: Can I throw my own...

You could wait until the baby was born and someone could hold a welcome baby shower. That way people could see the little one, and know what to bring--girl/boy. This type of shower is very popular here--no games, just visiting and snacks and sometimes come and go.

RE: Can I throw my own...

i agree with the welcome baby shower.
