  • I would wait until around 32 - 35 weeks. I'm superstitious.

  • I'm 30 weeks and the crib has been up for a week :) I just wanted the piece of mind that if anything should happen early, everything was ready. Even though I know the baby will be in a bassinet for awhile, next to our bed, it's something about knowing her room is ready to be used that makes me feel better...

  • Whenever you feel comfortable setting it up. There is no right or wrong time to do it. Some people set it up right away others wait till they are further along in the pregnancy. I set up our nursery once I hit 20 weeks. I had a friend that didn't set anything up till baby was home from the hospital.

  • I was 36/37 weeks before I even bought a crib. LOL So, yeah...I bought everything in the last month. Because I quit work then.
