what is the right time to begin the nursery? clicky poll

I'm wondering what people think....I have friends that are very superstitious and tell me it's bad luck to do it before 30 weeks or so...what do you think is the appropriate time?

  • I don't do the whole "luck" thing, but I voted for 20-30 weeks b/c it's typically the time women feel the best, aren't too awkward to maneuver, and are past the biggest risks of losing the baby like in early pregnancy.

    I voted 20-30 because that's when most people find out the sex (if they want to know).

    We decorated immediately after finding out!

  • I am having twins & started looking at furniture around 13-14 weeks, knowing it could take up to 12 weeks to come in. I'm very glad that I did b/c I ended up on bedrest at 26 weeks and thankfully the furniture was all in & I had the room painted already, so the decorating touches are the only thing missing but I'm not super stressed about that.

    ETA: I'm not a big 'bad luck' person but I will admit that it made me nervous to order furniture so early & risk something happening & then I'd potentially be stuck with the furniture/reminder...?

  • Purchasing or not purchasing baby things is not going to change the outcome of your pregnancy so I think that whole "luck" think is ridiculous.  Like if you did buy something and something horrible happened these same people would say it was your fault b/c you bought something? How awful.

    I said 13-20 weeks though simply b/c we started ordering things around 18 weeks.

  • I voted 20-30 weeks b/c I wanted to wait til my "big" u/s to start buying stuff, but I was thinking about what to buy since 16 weeks or so and that's when I actually started a registry online.

  • I think as soon as you know the sex of the baby.  If you're not finding out, then start whenever you can- probably after 12 weeks.  Better to be prepared and have it done than wait and get stressed or stuck on bed rest later in pregnancy.
  • dang!  we are behind the curve!  our crib just came in today and we have yet to start painting the nursery!
