Hey football fan mommy-to-be, are you searching for some football themed baby shower ideas? This article will certainly give you some good ideas for your baby shower party. It is a little frustrating not knowing what is available for preparation for the party.

I know exactly how you must be feeling. When I was having my first child, I wasn’t planning to have one at all but luckily I have a mother-in-law who arranged one for me.

During my pregnancies, I felt so horrible. It felt like it took forever to get through my pregnancy. Seriously, I was counting every day to pass on the calendar. I weighed 90-something pounds during my first pregnancy. Yes, I lost a lot of weight due to throwing up a lot, and couldn’t keep anything down in my belly.

My last trimester was not any better either. I had a very bad experience. So as you can see I wasn’t in any mood to prepare for a baby shower party at all. All I wished was for my pregnancy to be done already. LOL…..

I did have a very nice baby shower party though. It’s all thanks to my mother-in-law who has given me a chance to create some very nice memories.

“IT’S A BOY” Football Announcement

This is nice football to have and to use to announce to everyone that you are having a baby boy. The football is about 5 inches wide. What I like the most about this football is that you can actually write information about your baby boy on it, like Name, Date, Weight, Time, Length, and Place.

With this information written on the football then you don’t need to dig through looking for your baby’s birth certificate. Trust me you won’t be able to remember all that information when each passing year your baby is getting older.

I am serious, I can only remember my boys’ names and birthdays. The rest is gone like the wind. LOL…………
