  • Nope, nope, and nope. I'd say start your registry at 7 mo, baby shower at 8 mo, and hospital bag after baby shower

  • Def make a baby registry, 'cause if anyone asks you where you're registerd, you can be like, blah blah blah and then they buy ya something! I'm about 5 months & my mom told me to get that done & she told me to register at two places, because people like to have options. i did at target & babiesrus. the baby shower thing should probably start getting planned, since you'll have to give people at least a month's notice as to when it is. and hospital bag you can probably wait on 'til maybe 4 weeks before you're due, just in case you go into labor early.

  • Not agreeing with anon, i've had friends/relatives already purchase things off my registry!! and you can have your baby shower early if you want, i am, 'cause i don't feel like dealing with party nonsense while i'm in school & working, SO is in school and working & we'll be moving - too much to deal with!!

  • I did my registry when we found out the sex as did my SIL. I had my shower just shy of 7 months because it was in another state and I didn't want to have to ride in the car for 10 hours at 8 months pregnant. Still haven't done the hospital bag. I'm planning on having that ready to go the first week of August. I'm due August 27th.

  • do whatever you want to do and get it over with so you can relax and enjoy the pregnancy

  • I'm going to the hospital tomorrow to deliver (c-section) unless by some crazy miracle the baby decides to come tonight and I go into labor but anyway I didn't do any of those things. In fact, I just finished packing my bag a few minute ago
