How about a day bed?  I know you have a queen, but you can get a full size day bed and it still works as a couch and guest bed.

I think if you remove everything but the frame and mattress and push it in a corner you could totally make it work! sort of like this?

you could also look at mini cribs as they take up less room than a full size crib.

I am not currently pregnant but this is most likely what we will have to do as well. Luckily for us we have a day bed so it is a little easier to work with but I struggle with the room currently being safari themed and wanting either a fireman (boy) or care bear (girl) nursery theme….doesnt seem to really fit together but I guess the look of the room doesnt really matter as long as it gets the job done.

How much DIY/carpentry are you comfortable with?  I’ve seen some super cute rooms done with fold down beds, where the bed looks like an armoire/cabinet when its folded up, and then can be opened into a bed when needed.  There are DIY instructions for this online- it just depends on what you are comfortable doing, as it definitly takes some power tools and assembly.

You could definitly use the matress you have.  Cost would depend on the style you pick/materials.  A basic one can be constructed with some two by fours, plywood and heavy duty hinges.  A cute paint job will dress it up to match any decor.

I haven’t seen them used as a guest room as well as a nursery. I do know a few people who put a bed in there for when it was going to be a LONG night with the baby and they wanted a place to lay down and not take the baby back to the master bedroom.
