  • Close to the end of your pregnancy.

  • anytime that works for you. usually toward the end of second trimester or third sometime. I had mine at 27wks after finding out the sex but before I was too big to travel comfortably (had a 10hr drive to Ohio)

  • I had mine about six weeks or so before my due date. I think usually somewhere around that time is pretty normal. You don't want to push it too close to the end or you run the risk of early labor, plus it was nice to have plenty of time to get all of my gifts unpacked, clothes and blankets washed and ready, thank you notes done, etc. And I had time to buy anything I had wanted but didn't receive as a gift, too. Plus I wasn't so enormously pregnant that I didn't want to venture out of the house.

  • Towards the end of the pregnancy. I'd say any time in the last trimester.
