Re: Tell me I'm not being stupid

You totally should. And have fun and enjoy it! Something could ALWAYS happen - even at 36 weeks or whatever - and your biggest risk time is past so I see no reason not to start preparing, especially if you need to move stuff around anyway! Plus you'll be way more comfortable moving and bending and cleaning, etc. now than when you're huge.

Not meaning to freak you out by making you feel like something bad might happen at any time - just meaning to say that we can never really totally take pregnancy for granted, and so we just hope and pray and trust that it will work out and do what we need to to get prepared without being huge worrywarts when there's no reason to.

Have so much fun - I can't wait to get started on DD's room...our nursery is set, but the room we're moving her into needs renovations, so it will be fun to fix that all up.

All of this! Go for it!

Re: Tell me I'm not being stupid

If you want to go for it, its not like the pee stick isn't even dry yet, you've heard the heartbeat, you're feeling movement, its not unreasonable to start getting things ready.

Re: Tell me I'm not being stupid

I did the same thing Kim, for the same reasons. We were rearranging the boys' room anyways, and the changing table was still in there. Kian's been out of diapers since October so it was just being used as a dresser. So we moved it to our room for the baby, along with the nursing rocker b/c we had a big lounge chair in our room and the rocker in the living room, but needed to check the spacing for the changing table and rocker to fit on one wall etc. So, they're in there. I was kinda nervous at first, but its super cute! DH thinks so too. Fun to look at and dream. Looks so sweet.

Re: Tell me I'm not being stupid

If you have to move them anyway, why not? I agree w/ all the other mamas on here....

Re: Tell me I'm not being stupid

Not dumb at all! I have been slowly setting things up and rearranging. Better do it now than 35 weeks pregnant. I don't know why anyone would say that. I know people who have the nurseries set up by 20 weeks!

Re: Tell me I'm not being stupid

I agree with the others. Of course you are not being stupid, mama! Shame on those that put doubt in your head. For goodness' sake, you're halfway there already! And just think about how much easier all of that will be now than in 10+ more weeks when your belly is a lot bigger? You already have some rearranging to do, so it makes perfect sense!

I've already reorganized all of my cloth dipes, got DD a new bed and moved her clothes to that, stored away all of my nb clothes, bibs, receiving blankets, and linens in DD's old dresser, and filled up my rolly cart of nursing supplies, cds, covers, wraps, etc that will live in our bedroom next to the pack n play. I'd already have the crib set up but we need to move DD's old bed out first and storage is still a mess. LOL!

Re: Tell me I'm not being stupid

Another vote for "Go for it!". I think most new mamas take advantage of the 2 trimester energy to setup! Do it while you can, don't procrastinate, you will be too big and tired and clumsy to do it one day...before you know it! You may get a nesting 'wind' closer to due date and may not be able to resist the urge to wash everything AGAIN and rearrange stuff...try to conserve this energy for MUST DO's like take a walk, go on a date (do this LOTS if it's your 1st child...as much as you think you will do a monthly or weekly date night...you wont...it will be biyearly...LOL)...I wish you the best. And if you are worried about 'jinxing' yourself, remember 2 things: 1: Miscarriages are from nature/science/medical science not 'karma' or stepping on a crack or breaking a mirror, or walking under a ladder... 2: Worst case scenario---Hubby (or another loved one) packs up and gets rid of the 'baby's things' or it will still be there for you to do if you want to...when you are ready. I am due with #2 Nov 13 2012 and I have been buying galore (new to Cloth Diapering), we won't find out sex so I have boy and girl diapers and neutrals, if it's a boy he can wear pink at night or I'll sell them...LOL!!!
