when did you start to decorate the baby's room or start setting up stuff for the baby? Im curious, we haven't gotten anything yet, i have been looking in some baby stores for things to get, im only 18weeks, and we are going to have a baby shower as well, and get things ourselves for our baby too but i was curious as to when you started doing up your baby's room, nesting is a big thing for most women during pregnancy and it has been something in the back of my mind for a few days now, if anyone could help me out it would be really appreciated.
thanks

so its really up to when you feel ready or when your a little closer to the due date?
or does it not really matter, as long as its done before the baby comes and everything is settled

luke still sleeps in our room so I guess you could say I still haven't gotten his room done and he is 7 months. We have chosen to have him sleep in our room till he is 12 months.

We are moving in a few months and then he will have his own room so I will get stuff then.

my baby is going to sleep in our room for a while too, and then be moved into his or her own room, so i guess i have all the time to really plan on doing our baby's room, it just has been bugging me to make sure we have pretty much everything we need ready.
O another thing, when did you start packing your bag for the hospital when you would deliver your baby, i know i have a long way to think on planning that, but im curious

I'll be 35wks Tuesday, and all we have is a car seat... We don't have another room for the baby, so we're really not worried about having EVERYTHING you see in the magazines and TV. My mom has a crib and bassinet, but we can't get them until after the baby is born because she kinda lives 500 miles away. We are saving up money right now so we can just kinda splurge after s/he's born cause we don't know what it is.

I bought the paint the day after I found out I was preggo (yellow & dark brown). I already decided that if it was a boy or girl we were going with classic pooh, so I got stuff here and there as I've been going along. I'm 35 weeks and 3 days. This past weekend I painted the baby's room, and am working again on some touch-ups tonight when I get home from work. Tomorrow my hubby is going to put the last coat of polyurothane on the floor, and then we'll start haning stuff up and moving his stuff into the room. Smile I made a quilt out of classic pooh material to match the room and am currently also working on a glider that I bought that needs redone. I wish we would have started a little earlier because now I feel a bit rushed, but it is coming along anyways.

The closer you are to the due date, the more tired you will feel, so any big jobs I would suggest you do them sooner versus later. The little things might be nice distractions for later on in your pregnancy when you are beginning to feel impatient. Some parents won't do the nursery until after baby is born because of either wanting to know the gender or for superstitious reasons. Some care providers don't want women painting due to the noxious smells from paint, but you will need to decide that on your own. I did the room at about 6 months along. I remember so well because it was when i was painting that i first noticed my boobs were leaking a little. funny memories! I did the nursery in yellow, dark blue and light blue moons and stars theme so it was gender neutral.

aww thats cute!
most likely if we do our nursery before our baby is born my fiance and probably brother in law would paint, they dont want me around any paint fumes, my brother and sister in law painted their bed room a month or 2 ago, and they were like ok try not going up stairs too maky times it smells like paint! lol my sister in law and i would do things like setting up cribs and other things i would like to put in the room.
IKEA has some cute ideas for baby nurseries i was just there today!
any other big jobs my fiance would help me with too
thanks for input Smile

I started putting together my sons nursery at about 5 months into my pregnancy. i had all of the main nescesities at 6 months along. my son is 2 months old now and hardly ever sleeps in his room lol. i just cant be away from him! =) for nesting... that kicked in at about 5 months a tiny bit, faded, then came back strong at 7 months and again at 8 1/2 months. there after i started to pack my hospital bag as i thought labor would come soon. at 8 1/2+ months i had my bag packed. ended up being induced, son was 1 week over due and i said ok to the induction because of the risks i would face if i let labor come on its own.
