My oh did it this week (week 26) just painted it though we are going to hire a carpet cleaner and get curtains etc and build furniture around end of November so week 31. Baby will be in with us but the nursery will be handy for night feeds to give other one a rest

It was mine when I was a baby and it was my moms when she was a kid. It's very old and had to be duct taped together to move it O_O. It holds together fine set up, but just wondering if it's time to retire it :-\ My intent was to paint it and see. If not, my mom'll take it back to her house and we'll find something else.
SO... dresser is the last bit to do I will be using that as a changing table for him.
Aw, so exciting! LOL about the duct tape! Would be amazing to have something like that used by three generations. Wish I could make my own blankets, my granny is knitting one for baby though

Ooh, carpet cleaner probably a good idea! Not that baby will be on the floor much at first but it'll make it generally cleaner and fresher in there. Might do that! Hmm seems like most of you ladies are doing it earlier than I was planning so maybe I will actually bring it forward a bit exciting!

We're not having a nursery this time as baby will be sharing with his big sister once he's old enough. In the meantime we're on the lookout for a space saver cot for him so he can be in with us as long as possible. We really need to move

Didn't do my daughter's room until she was about 3 months old because we moved when she was 4 weeks. This time we decided our son and daughter could share so we had to redecorate and oh wanted it done before the baby came so it was done at about 30 odd weeks. I keep redoing things with stickers (which my daughter keeps peeling!!)

We aren’t going to do anything until it’s time for baby to move into one of his brothers’ rooms. Two of our kids will have to share, so I’m avoiding doing anything too early as DS1 and DS2 have their own rooms at the moment and since the baby will be in our room for up to the first year, there is no point in a room sitting empty for so long if we baby will get a room to himself. And there’s no point completely changing around one of the boys rooms if the baby is going in with him when we won’t move the baby for so long.

So all we’re going to do prior to moving baby out of our room is buy a new chest of drawers for the baby’s clothes and putting it in one of the kids rooms.

Also one thing to consider is making sure there's not too much going off at one time for the older child, as we were moving out daughter into the bigger room to share with the baby we wanted to get used to the new room first before

Absolutely!! We have been slowly doing this with DS. First we moved him out of his crib, then to his big boy room, we are now working on the highchair. Even though that isn't something she will need it helps that he isn't associating losing it to her either. Plus he seems to think it is now his thrown.

I hoped my daughter wouldn't think all of the stuff was hers but as soon as the baby stuff came out she started saying it belonged to her lol, his bouncer has become her chair to watch t.v. in Lol. She lays on the play mat and sits in his car seat, all of which she claims is hers. Luckily she is a proper little mother hen and loves him too much to be angry when he uses 'her' stuff

My little guys nursery has been done since around 24 weeks ish because I was still able to help fairly easily plus I needed a place to put all the clothes etc that we were buying personally I think leaving it until 36 weeks is a little late but each to their own.
