Most of our pregnant pals say they’re aiming for the second trimester. After all, this is the time in pregnancy when you’ll feel most up to it, and decorating plans may become clearer if you’re peeking at baby’s sex.

Even if you aren’t quite ready to start painting, it’s best to go ahead and pick out the major furniture by month six or so — it can take several weeks to arrive and most likely more than one to trip to the store to pick it out. Make sure to measure your nursery before you head out to shop, and bring a tape measure with you to the store so that you make sure the things you pick out will fit into your baby room.
