Get the guests to bring a photo of them as a baby and play a game to guess who’s who
Also on amazon there’s loads of games you can order but depends on budget - things like who knows mummy best, who will do the most when baby’s here. There’s also one I’ve played where you use a piece of string to guess the bump size - winner is whoever’s string is closest when out round the mum but it really depends on the mum - I know I’d be uncomfortable with that particular game.

Sorry but I hate the games, I usually try and avoid them, especially the dirty nappy one 🤢
Food drinks and chatting is good though!

at my sister in law’s we had pin the sperm on the egg, dummies in a big bowl that you had to get out with toy fishing rods, plain baby vests and fabric markers to personalise the vests, cards where you could fill them in with advice for mum, guess the birth date and weight, and a game where you had to guess whether the woman’s face was a labour face or orgasm face (bit awkward but fun!) it was very cheesy but great fun.

I’m not a huge fan of traditional baby shower games. But porn or labour is quite a good one! x

That's repulsive! Porn or labour??

My mum organised a surprise baby shower for me and we had quiz type games where you had to say what the baby version of the adult animal was called, like kitten was cat, but it's actually quite difficult with certain animals! Also a quiz about me and the baby like 'when is the due date' with multiple choice. And we did 'gift bingo' where everyone had a bingo card with various possible gifts on them, then when I opened the gifts they sould cross off what I opened if it was on their card and then the winner would shout line or bingo. I quite liked that one as I felt pretty awkward opening gifts and it felt like a bit of a distraction!

Sounds like the games were pretty tame compared go other ones!
