I started my registries at about 18 weeks but only added basic stuff that was gender neutral at that point. After we found out we were having a girl at 20 weeks is when I really started adding a lot to the registries. I haven’t really advertised them to anyone yet except for my Mom and Sister (who are organizing my shower) so I’m not really sure that when I started them makes much of a difference anyway. But it was fun putting them together regardless! 🙂

I just started mine at 21 weeks, and would have probably delayed more if it wasn’t for my sister commenting about it several times. Not everything is there yet, hoping to finish it in the next 2 weeks so I can have it done and over with.

I’ve done just about everything for mine online. I did go into BabiesRUs to look at a few things, but I did all the registry online since DH hates doing those things.

I started my Amazon one last week (just shy of 13 weeks).  It’s like maybe 5 things and it’s all stuff that is gender neutral – stroller, diaper bag, baby bjorn, swing thing.  So stuff that I know we will need/want that won’t be gender specific.  Once we find out the gender I’ll add more stuff – obviously. LOL

I started mine at about 20 weeks, but you can start it whenever. People aren’t going to look at until it’s time for the baby shower.

I started adding stuff online probably around 8-10 weeks. Not “fun” stuff, just things I wanted to remember. Then further along, probably around 16-20 weeks (I can’t remember exactly), we went into the store and did the scan-gun thing.

I started and finished mine at 24 weeks. I wanted to wait until the point of viability for some reason.

I plan to wait until we find out the sex.

I am 22 weeks and have not begun my registry yet. I have been doing my research though for a couple weeks and know what “big items” I want to register for and the exact model, etc…(pack and play, travel system, crib, etc).

My friend who just had her second baby is going to do a quick walk thru Target with me soon and give me some pointers on the necessary items so that I can go back with hubby and let him have fun with the scanning gun… LOL.

I just started one at 32 weeks, but I’m not having any showers (no family or close friends nearby).  I wasn’t even going to register, but our parents wanted to buy us some stuff and I don’t trust them to pick out stuff on their own.  It’s also just handy to use as a list of what I still need to buy.

Haha, kindof emberassing, but I started my Amazon registry when we were TTC so that I could remember some items that stood out to me. Also, Amazon has a sweepstakes right now for people who make baby registries and put a certain # of items on it, so I started it way early for that reason, too.

I’m 10 and a half weeks, and I just started one yesterday to help keep track of things I like.  I’m definitely not making it public anytime soon though!  Once I find out the sex, I’ll probably really start adding stuff and sharing with family.

I will probably wait until 20-24 weeks… We haven’t told DH’s side yet so definitely need to wait until we’ve done that!
