  • With my son we bought at crib at 8 weeks and but the thing up by the middle of my second trimester. We bought blankets and stuff before we found out he was a boy but at 20 weeks we we did find out the gender we went out and bought tons of stuff. I am 8 weeks with this one and we havent bought a single thing.

  • I bought the crib pretty early because it was a really good deal. I bought things here and there throughout my whole pregnancy, but made sure I saved stuff for the baby shower. We didn't set the crib up or fix the room until about 7 months, that's just when we got to it.

  • the crib is still set up because we just put our 2 year old in a toddle bed, and just decided not to take it down, pretty much everything is still set up besides the swing because its another boy and my 2 year old is a boy!

  • I never had to buy anything but diapers for the baby and we bought those mere weeks ahead.
    We started setting up the month I was Due.
    This time around (third baby) we're setting up this month or next. I am seven months now.
