First, I promise that this blog is not turning into a baby blog. My posts about babies and pregnancy will be very limited. But I do need help with one very important thing, the nursery.
Even though I just started my second trimester and I realize I have plenty of time to make nursery decisions, it’s not going to be an easy choice for me. What’s going to make it even harder is that we are going to keep the sex of the baby a surprise until he/she is born.
So, instead of stressing out about this a few months from now I decided to start looking at options sooner than later.
Here are my current ideas.
All opinions are welcome. Please let me know what you think of these choices. Thanks!

For a gender neutral design, I’d go for #4.. if you want to wait to get the bedding until after the baby is born, I’d go with #1 for a boy and #2 for a girl.

Congratulations! I did not know you were expecting! How exciting. I like the 4th picture a lot. That way you can throw in splashes of gender specific colors once the baby arrives. Congrats again!

Well they are all so nice but I think #4 is more you. I too feel that you can splash in more colors when the baby arrives. I like the last one too but I think you will get tired of that more quickly. #4 is very neutral & soothing. They are all nice choices though.

I like #1 & #4. And, speaking from experience, only spend money on the sheets. As an infant you don’t need the bumpers since the baby doesn’t move or roll. And then once they start rolling over most docs reccomend you remove them due to suffocation risks. Spend the $ on cute accessories, not crib bumpers!

I like the first and last ones the best. The first with the blues and greens are very soothing and have an organic feel about them. And I love the fun animal shapes and their contrast against the white. I read somewhere that contrasting colors arranged geometrically may stimulate brain activity which may lead to a higher IQ down the road. You never know…
