when to do it

Ok so i am only 8 weeks, and I was thinking about doing a baby registry. Yeah I know wayyyyy to early, but the question is when should I do it? We want to give everyone enough time to find things before the shower, so when should we do the registry?

  • I would do it once your in your 3rd trimester. Probably between 6 and 7 months. (I'd say 7 months)

  • I had my baby shower about two months before my due date and I had registered two months before then. If you are going to find out the sex of the baby then I would wait until after you find out. If you want it to be a surprise then I would check with the store that you want to register at. Some delete the registery after a certain amount of time has elapsed. Just remember though, if you register too early, that same product may or may not be available by the time you have your shower.

  • I would definitely wait until you are halfway through your pregnancy. You never know what could happen. You don't want to do a registry and then miscarry, ya know?

    We had our shower 6 weeks before my due date. I think I registered about 4 weeks before that. So I was around 30 weeks?? Not sure.

  • Yeah you should def wait bc you dont even know what the sex is yet.
    But i started mine at 22 weeks.
