I had finally announced to my co-workers today that I am expecting. They were excited and all gushy about it. One of them mentioned having a shower further down the line. The thought never occurred to me at all as this is my second pregnancy. I was not with this employer w my first pregnancy, so what say the board? Is it ok to let them go on and plan something if they want?

We said goodbye to Tiny 1/4/16 Fresh cycle #3 2/16 8R/7M/5F BFP 5/12/16 We said goodbye to flutter on 5/27 and poprock on 5/28 BFP 8/30/16 We said goodbye to Samuel 10/3 (Trisomy 16) Moving on to Donor Embryos BFP 12/20/16 We said goodbye to Turtle 12/30
I think I'd make 1/2 an attempt to say "Oh- that's so nice of you. But as this is my 2nd pregnancy, I wouldn't want anyone to feel weird about it.". If they insist "we do showers for all babies!", then I'd roll with it.
Thanks for the replys My department is all women my parents' age, but their own children are either high school or college/aged. They just seemed very excited to actually "know" someone having a baby.
In this case, I'd think of it like the church ladies who like to throw a little church shower for anyone in the church having a baby. They mostly like a reason to get together, eat cake, make or buy cute little outfits and gush over adorable booties and blankets. Make a token protest, if they insist, let them do it and have fun.
