Share your nursery design ideas / inspiration pics! I definitely want to do a nautical themed nursery, but I also love hippos (obviously) so a jungle theme would also be cute… not sure! Some of my favorite pics:

How far along are you & when are you due? 15 w 5 days? Due March 1

When is your next appointment? Oct. 4

How old are you? DH? I’m 29, he is almost 28

First child or no? yes

Weight gain to date? none, really. 🙁 I’ve always been borderline underweight, and it’s fluctuated a couple pounds, but I definitely haven’t gotten to where it’s consistently more than it used to be.

When do you expect to find out the sex of baby (ie. date, week, or at birth)? Oct. 7. 19 w and a few days!

Share your nursery design ideas / inspiration pics! None, actually. We were hoping to sell our house first thing this spring, but I guess we’ll have to hold off on that for a few months with a March baby! We don’t really have room right now for a separate nursery, so baby will just sleep in a pack n play or cosleeper somewhere til we sell our house and buy a bigger one.

How far along are you & when are you due? 14w2d, due March 11, 2014

When is your next appointment? 9/16, can’t wait! Had to leave my doppler at home during vacation so I’ve missed “visiting” with baby every couple of days this week.

How old are you? DH? I am 30 (31 at the end of the month!) and DH is 30, he’ll turn 31 just after our meatball is born 🙂

First child or no? Yes

Weight gain to date? Haha, last time i checked maybe 3 lb but that was 2 weeks ago and we just started the second trimester (woohoo!) and are on what became a babymoon surrounded by awesome food, so um probably not so good at the next appt on 9/16

When do you expect to find out the sex of baby (ie. date, week, or at birth)? Maybe as early as our 15 week appt on Monday! We suspect boy already from the butt shots we got at 11w, but fx for a confirmation.

DH grew up on the water sailing and loves fishing so I’m thinking for our little boy a nautical nursery would be fun. Our guest room walls are already this shade of greenish grey (Benjamin Moore Nantucket Breeze) so to ground that color I’m thinking navy blue and white accents, but I can’t decide if dark brown or white furniture would look better (leaning toward dark brown, ), like this nursery

When are the rest of you ladies actually going to start working on your nursery? I’m thinking 20  weeks or so.

Yay, so excited for a new thread! 🙂

How far along are you & when are you due?  15w1d due March 5th

When is your next appointment?  Monday – Sept 16th

How old are you? DH? I’m 27 and he is 34

First child or no? First timer!

Weight gain to date? 0-3 lbs depending on the day

When do you expect to find out the sex of baby (ie. date, week, or at birth)? Hopefully on Tuesday at our elective u/s!  

Share your nursery design ideas / inspiration pics! I’m trying to stay away from looking at nursery things until gender is confirmed.  I started getting way too caught up in girl stuff so I had to stop myself.  We will definitely be painting the nursery gray though and will accent with either pink or blue depending on gender. Also, we aren’t into “themes” so we will see where we end up.

Share your nursery design ideas / inspiration pics! We are getting all our furniture/baby stuff from our siblings who have completed their families, the only thing I’d like that they haven’t got is a cocoonababy instead of a cot/Moses basket to start. We only have a 2 bed house so leaving spare room as is and just adding a cot!

I’m really LOVING (read obsessing) over the color grey and elephants. I want grey walls, white furniture and elephants. We’ll add lavendar if its a girl and yellow if its a boy. I am converting my office into the nursery so I’ll have to move in to DH’s office (ack we’ll have to share!) – I want to switch out the blinds to white wooden shutters & put in a closet organizing system but other wise the room should be good to go. FIL already hinted that they’ll be buying lots of the baby stuff, I was talking about nursery furniture and he said “good thing there’s a big holiday between now & when the baby comes.” – It’s their first grandchild and they are over the moon about the LO.

@ThePrincessBride10612:  I love that little elephant! Maybe because elephants look like hippos 🙂 But seriously, that is adorable. Such a fun idea.

How far along are you & when are you due? 12 weeks + 3 days.  Due March 24th.

When is your next appointment? October 10th.

How old are you? DH? I’m 31, DH is 38.

Weight gain to date?  I don’t own a scale but I was down 5 at my 8 week appointment and at my 12 week appointment was still down 4 and that was 2 days ago.  I’m feeling better and eating more now so hopefully start gaining a bit now. 

Share your nursery design ideas / inspiration pics! This is the inspiration pic, but we are using white furniture and incorporating some giraffe and safari stuff.  And less grey. The main area of our house is grey so I promised DH to go easy on the grey in the nursery.
