I'm feeling alone. Please come in if you aren't buying anything until after your shower and aren't setting up a nursery until after the baby is born.
I don't need anything crowding up my life right now
I am not buying anything until after my shower! We are in seriously saving mode as we are either buying a house or moving! So don't really want extra stuff around if we are moving and can't afford any stuff right now! Truly hoping everything I need is bought through my registry!
Also not setting up a nursery due to the same situation - we are either going to move to another city and rent or we are going to buy a house here but we aren't sure yet!
I can't do anything yet...we're moving to my husband's family lake house north of Atlanta from Miami next week, but we'll only be there for a month...so, it'll be mid/late March before we do anything.
hst:I think this is smart! I lived in a one bedroom until DD was one, then we bought a house and set up a room for her. When I see nursuries I think they look like a waste of time! Everytime I thought I needed something I would try to wait and often the "need" would go away withen two weeks. I'm trying to do the same with 2.
Yeah I figure with the wonders of Amazon Prime I'll have a month to stock up after the shower on anything I think I will need and we've always planned on having Gizmo in our room until we move in the fall. I like looking at nurseries and all but reading some posts makes me feel inadequate.

I haven't bought anything yet & won't until after the shower. The few things I do have were gifts from Christmas. I don't have a nursery room, so that solves that issue. I'll probably only have an Arm's Reach co-sleeper for awhile next to my bed. Needless to say, that doesn't require fancy bedding...so here I sit...without anything to do or "plan" as far as shopping & decorating goes.
MeghanKG:The "nursery" is currently an empty spare bedroom filled with sh!t we don't know what to do with, and I don't see me organizing it anytime soon.
This exactly. The crap has been there since we moved here in July and I don't see it going anywhere in the near future.

Pick me! My husband and I don't find out where we will be living for the next 3-4 years until mid-March (residency match day) so obviously we not only have no nursery yet but no room to store stuff in our little apartment now even if we wanted to start buying stuff!
Our plan will be to figure out living arrangements in March, shower in April, move in May, and baby in June. Yay for summer chaos!
We dont know what we are having and dont plan on buying anything for a nursery until after its born. We dont want green or yellow so we are waiting. Finishing a remodel and doing research on the best things to buy and deciding on names are what we are doing until after the shower.
Baby will room with us in the beginning and we are moving in November so I'm not even buying a crib until we move and not decorating a nursery.
The only thing I need to buy is a Rock N Play for baby to sleep in and if it's a girl, some clothes but I have enough gender neutral stuff to get me from NB- 3months. So I probably won't even shop for awhile.
I'm not having a shower or buying much at all because I have most everything already. What we di have is in the basement... somewhere. Half the time I forget I'm even pregnant, not just sick. I'm truly not doing sh!t.
We won't set up a nursery because baby will be in our room.
We will buy a few things eventually, but I'm not in a hurry.
