What to include on your baby shower invitations
How soon before baby shower should I send invitations?
Think about it this way: The typical baby shower should take place around your sixth or seventh month, and shower invitations should be sent out about four weeks beforehand. So you're looking at about your five- or six-month mark. Earlier than that, guests might forget.
When should you have a gender reveal?
Wait until mid-pregnancy.
Gender reveal parties are typically planned around 20 weeks, when your mid-pregnancy ultrasound checks baby's anatomy and can usually detect gender.
