Not just Bulgarians. The people in most other countries don't normally host baby showers. It is an American/British tradition, and not a very old one at that.

Generally baby showers are given when the mother to be is six to eight months pregnant. It is wiser to give the baby shower when she is six months pregnant because the closer she gets to her due date the more tired she would be and she may not enjoy the baby shower to it's fullest potential. It is also wise to ask the mother or sister of the mother to be if she wants a baby shower before the baby is born as some new mothers are superstitious that it is bad luck to have a baby shower before the baby is born in case she loses the baby. Some very successful baby showers are given after the baby is born and then everyone can see the new baby. If you choose to do this them wait a month after the baby is born so the new mother is a little more rested.
