When should we start the nursery?
Posted 24 January 2008 - 08:06 AM
So with that being said when do most people start purchasing, painting, etc. We've heard some say it's bad luck. So when do you all think we should start? We are still early almost through the first trimester and time is flying.
Any suggestions??? :-)

We had our hospital bag/luggage packed at 30 weeks!! People laughed but it sure came in handy when we got the 5 AM phone call at 34 weeks that this was it!!!

I can't wait to see the finished product when you are done with it. The rest of your house is gorgeous and I'm sure the nursery will be absolutely adorable!!!

I agree with the pp, can't wait to see pics - the rest of your house is so beautiful!

Anyway...I think third tri is a good time to start if you are quick at it but it looks like you guys have a lot of work before you can get to the nursery so I would start on that stuff now then just get to the nursery as soon as all the other is finished...

Seriously! They had just moved their older daughter in to her new room, got her in a big girl bed, got all the newborn stuff out and ready and all that jazz, and 3 days later I had the baby. Talk about close!
I would say definately wait until after the 'big' u/s, and even then I would probably wait until closer towards the end of the 2nd tri / beginning of the 3rd just to be on the safe side.

With #3 I think I had it all ready by the 6th week of pregnancy.
With #4 ~ I just kept trying to figure out where to put anymore... so no nursery, he just slept with us.
We ran out of bedrooms in our 2 bedroom house and 4 kids. Barry and I now sleep out on the Florida Room.

Believe me, time will go by at a snail's pace in that final trimester. You will want something to preoccupy your time in that last trimester. Registering, decorating the room, and buying cute baby stuff is a great way to help that last trimester pass.
