Crib & Gender talk!

I am soon to be 4 months into my first pregnancy, my husband and i have already started looking around at cribs and have one basically already picked. When did everyone/will you buy yours? Im reading online and people wait until theyre very late in second trimester?? But i would actually like to be able to kove around and be comfortable as were decorating the nursery, wouldnt you agree? I kind of think its silly to wait THAT long. What are your opinions? When did you start buying your nursery items??<br><br><br>Also! How far along were you when your dr gave you a gender guess? I know, im a typical 1st timer qho just cannot wait any longer and it drives me NUTS knowing there is a little boy/girl just hanging out in my belly and im not aware of what he/she is! I have a dr who will not give me another ultrasound until im 22 weeks! ( id actually really love to watch my first baby grow, but i guess he doesnt seem to find it a big deal....) so he wont tell me the sex until then unless i purchase a 3d ultrasound which is around 250 and some change

Re: Crib & Gender talk!

Hmm... I think we got our crib in the second trimester with our first child. That sounds about right. Geanted, he's three now so forgive me if my memory is a bit hazy about the less important details!
Our anatomy scan is in our 20th week, which is pretty typical. Any time between 18 and 22 weeks is ideal for checking all of baby's parts, including the sex. Skip the 3d. If your doctor's office is relatively updated they'll have the 3d option on their ultrasound machines and will likely switch it on for a good picture if baby is cooperative. :smileyhappy:

Re: Crib & Gender talk!

Dr gave me the sex!! YAYY! How ever our actual gender ultrasound won't be until this coming Thursday. Can you believe its not 3d? 4 separate drs in one practice and only 2 of them do a 3d anatomy scan. But whatever! I get to see my little cup cake!

With my first we didn't buy nursery furniture until about 8 weeks before my due date. However, we lived in an apartment and couldn't do much decorating anyway.

Re: Crib & Gender talk!

We also found out the sex of our little ones. Both girls :smileyhappy: We are lucky since they are twins we see the specialist every 2 weeks for scans. We just ordered our cribs from the store and we are 22 weeks. They quoted us 8-16 weeks for the cribs. I guess Natart makes them as needed and doesn't mass produce them since they are made in Canada.
