How far along in your pregnancy did you start to work on the nursery? I'm almost 6 weeks and would like to get the room that is going to be the babies cleaned out at least, but I'm not sure if we should do anything yet.

  • You have plenty of time. I wouldn't "throw myself" in to it. But you can always slowly clean it out here and there. After you start showing and whether you decide to find out what "it" is then you'll have more of an idea what you want to do. :) Enjoy being preggers!

  • my mom came and pretty much did everything when i was around 7 months along with my first. with this one, i don't know when we'll be able to do the nursery...we're moving, so the added stress sucks! lol fortunately, my christmas list for me and dh has been for everyone to chip in and get us the stuff we need..nothing really matched as far as furniture with our first, and i really want matching this time.

  • i put the nursery together when i was about 7-8 monts pregnant. you have plenty of time to decorate and get the room together. just enjoy being preg for now.

  • We started when I was around 25 weeks but only because we had to take my son out of his room and put him in my room, the larger of the two so had to redecorate 2 bedrooms rather than just do the nursery! I really wanted to get it all done asap but you really do have plenty of time :)
