Who is supposed to throw the baby shower? I was going to throw our own baby shower but it got to be too much with little to no support from anyone. We just cannot do it financially so I cancelled throwing our own. So frustrated and feel so unsupported.

I'm sorry you aren't feeling very supported. Typically a friend, relative, coworker will organize it.

I am sorry that you are going through this. I think throwing your own baby shower would be tough. Could you make a wish list from stores you like to send out if anyone asked for it?

I'm sorry. Do you have any friends or coworkers who can help you out?

The mom-to-be's mother or mother in law.

I'm sorry you're going through that and it's hard feeling unsupported. Throwing your own shower can be stressful and expensive Perhaps you can talk to a friend or relatives you are close with (on both sides of the family) and maybe they can come together and split the cost? You of course would give your input as to the theme and your expectations.

Usually the grandmothers-to-be are the ones that throw the baby shower.

I never designated anybody to throw my shower, but my mom and mother in law offered and took care of everything (food, games, "prizes", etc), which I was super grateful for. I don't think anybody should have the extra stress of planning their own shower because it is A LOT. I hope somebody pulls through for you because you deserve it

Our church had a shower after the baby was born. It was like cultural or something. Usually it was co-workers or family or friends. You should have input if you want to, no harm in that.

Do you have a sister, SIL or friend that can host? All the ideas can come from you

I planned mine out because I have had ideas in mind since before I ever conceived, but my mom and mother in law actually "hosted" it.

I agree a lot with Katya and several others on here, it should not be done by you. So sorry you've felt a lack of support. I hope things turn around very soon on that!

First things first, I'm so sorry you're not feeling supported. Secondly, I don't think there's a specific person who should throw the shower but it def shouldn't be you! Take care and relax mama

I always thought it is thrown by one of the grandparents from either side, or a family member in general, or a close friend. So sorry you've not felt much support. Sometimes I think that folks tend to forget or remember less easy about the bundle of joy we are prepping for and the time frames, while we, think about it ALL the time. I felt kind of not supported or thought about with my first pregnancy because no one had offered to throw us a baby shower until I just came out with it in communication about how it had bothered me. Then it was like everyone wanted to help.
