I am very excited either way... but I have to say dreading the comments from others BUT I decided Im not telling strangers what we are having... I will keep replying we dont know or we are having a baby lol but family better be warned hopefully my dh will give them a heads up because I wont be anything less than blatantly honest and I wont sugar coat my reaction to their stupid comments.
Preparing a nusery is a lot of work. My DD room took a whole year for me to decide and then I changed it again after... Different rug, and a shade darker on the pink and a different tv and jeez the list goes on lol my DH was like wow glad we didnt do it right away when she was born bc 1) we cosleep whatever judge if you want but DD was breast fed and we enjoyed having her in there infact she still sleeps with us lol attachment parenting i guess. So her room wasnt used at all the first year except for like to store her stuff 2) He thought if I changed it twice than from the start I prob would have changed it a ton of times and drove him nuts and spent too much lol
I think you should get a few things in a theme you like. It will help you nest and make this baby feel special. They have some great matching blankets, bibs... small items that will all match to make a theme that wont break bank but will make you feel like you do have a theme and prepared in that way to make it special.
Retail therapy helped me get over my GD with DD. But I got over this GD because reality sunk in.
