my first daughter was in our room in our bed until 11.5 months,

 and my second daughter is in our room in our bed as well she is a little over 9.5 months....I set her crib up next to our bed (as a toddler bed so it's kind of an extension of our bed) she starts out there and a few hours later ends up right next to me to nurse for the rest of the night

my plans where to move her to her crib in her room with her sister around 11.5months as well but it's been emotionally difficult for me to think about making her leave our bed being that she MAY be our last baby=( she is so precious to wake up to. and they are only so small for such a short quick amount of time ='(

 My son was in my room with me in a bassinet for a few months, it was just easier that way because of the frequent night time feedings.  It will be the same when I have this baby too.  Every once in a while my son wants to come back into bed with me for a little while, so I put him in there for 30 minutes or an hour (until he starts to calm down and nod back off to sleep) then I put him back in his room.

Our little girl slept in her own room. We use the walk to her room to wake us up.

 Our room for the first two to three months and then in his own room. We did this with our daughter and it worked out fine. The baby will be in a bassinet in our room, not in bed with us. I do not want this one getting used to sleeping with us like my daughter did. It took us forever to get her out of our room.

She will stay in our room until she sleeps through the night, just like her big sister did =)

 ATM We all (will) sleep in one room. Ju (18 mo DS) will be moving into his own room in August.

My son slept in the bed with me for 6 wks when he came home only bc I was sleeping on the couch bed since I couldn't go upstairs.then I put him in the bassinett for a month or so and then onto the crib in his own room after that.this new baby will be in a bassinett in our room for a while since my kids will be sharing a room then on to the crib when I'm ready.lol

I prefer to have the baby in another room so we can both learn to sleep through the night. It worked with my 1st. Not so much with my 2nd. We'll see how number 3 feels about it.

When she gets here, it will have to be her own room.  There just isn't the space in our room.  We live in an older house where the bedrooms are 10*10 and our bedroom barely holds our bed and two dressers.  And its not like the dressers are huge either!  I couldn't imagine fitting a bassinet or a crib in there.
