I started planning a nursery before we were even TTC. However, planning and doing are very different things! At 24 weeks, the future nursery is only partially cleaned out (there’s still furniture that needs to be rehomed) and I’ve only just started buying things to decorate. Painting probably won’t be done until I’m 30 weeks, as my parents plan to come in and paint for us while we’re away on vacation.

I looked at cribs a couple years ago before we were engaged.  lol….I know when we have a baby we will get one of those convertible cribs that turn into a regular bed =D

Aside from that….I got nothing.  I look online at baby stuff a lot and have a pinterest board, lmao.  No baby though.  I probably sound crazy.  *backs out of thread slowly*

We got a  crib and painted at 13 weeks, we have gotten a rocker this past week and everything except gender accessories/pictures/bedding/rug will be done by 16 weeks.

My husband is a baseball coach and I am very involved in interior decorating.  So his season starts late feb and ends early June.. So I wanted to be able to shop around as soon as I know the sex for the perfect decor.

I am 14 weeks and I already have bedding picked out for both sex, cribs, wall decor, etc so when we find out what we are having I can just start ordering.  It help passes the time and keeps my family very much involved because they are sending me ideas as well.

I am 21 weeks and we have looked at cribs, etc, but have not bought yet. I have bought a few other baby related things from a friend, and have some clothes. We plan on looking for a little while longer until we buy anything.

But that is just me! I don’t see the sense in rushing, personally, and I know that it will make those last few weeks pass more quickly to have something to do.

I’m just over 30 weeks and we’re still clearing out the office so we can start setting it up. I’m feeling so behind!!

DH and I have had a theme picked out since before we started TTC lol. Incidently, we are also going with a woodsy/owl theme so I think it’s an excellent choice! We started buying early before TTC, I’m a big bargain shopper so I’ve been picking up gender neutral clothing, some storage items that go with our theme, the bottles I love etc. Sometimes deals are too good to pass up! Recently we picked up the lifefactory glass bottles I love, a sleep sack and some great swaddle wraps for $5 a piece.

In terms of actually painting and setting stuff up, I think that depends on your comfort level. I would probably wait until after the first trimester just to be sure everything was okay, it’s one thing to have stuff, it’s another to have to look at it all set up if something happens.

Started thinking about it at 20ish weeks and actually (slowly) doing it by 26 weeks.  I’m almost 34 weeks and we are getting close to done.
