Do you stalk your registries?

my shower is in a week from tomorrow and only TWO things have been purchased!!! i'm worried this MyRegistry business was a bad idea for my family, although i thought they were all technologically advanced to handle it. my only hope is that people are buying things and not updating the registry to say that they bought it...
now i sound like a greedy bride... and i need to

Also, our William Sonoma registry is almost completed, yet I have tons of cheaper options and deals with no shipping/tax on myregistry, but nobody is taking the leap to buy from there. Maybe b/c William Sonoma is also listed at weddingchannel.com, and myregistry.com is only listed on my wedding website?
Finally, people don't bother to look at my website to see where I'm registered, and instead buy me gifts from Tiffanys or Bloomingdales (which at least have gift receipts) or some weird things from who knows where, so sometimes I wonder what the point of a registry is anyhow haha. I guess I've done the same a few times, though usually it was when there was nothing left on the person's registry.
Don't mean to complain - of course it is nice to get any gifts - though people's idea of an appropriate gift varies hugely.

The way I feel about it now is, you asked for x,y,z by registering for it. So it isn't like it's a surprise when someone actually buys yous x, so why not keep tabs if it makes you happy? Planning a wedding is stressdul, give yourself this one treat!
