I was one of the early posters on here!  This is my first visit to craftster since the baby was born  Shocked.  I actually haven't been here since about the second trimester.  My baby is now four months old!  Let me tell you--it's great, fun, and wonderful, but you will not have time to craft for the first few months!  So, if you want to make stuff, I have to repeat the advice of the other posters--there is very little time in the beginning, so make stuff BEFORE the baby comes.

Also--they grow fast, so don't spend hours upon hours embroidering a cute onesie that they can wear for two weeks.  I made some that were cute and quick, but I also have a couple that were really complicated with huge designs that are still sitting half done.  Instead make things that are useful (bibs, burp cloths, a sling, diapers, blankets) and that can be used for a long time (quilts).

Congratulations to all the preggers!  It's going to change your life in the most amazing ways  Cheesy.

well, congratulations! i would suggest making a quilt or blanket, especially a smaller one that can be put in the car seat. also maybe start making things for the crib or simplicity has a lot of really cute baby clothes patterns and pjs are always good! or decorate up some onesies cause those can be so boring!

i'm 5 1/2 months, about to work my last week at work, and i am finally starting the baby crafting. the delay wasn't due to morning sickness, but an insane devotion to my job at starbucks. glad that's over. i'm going to post some pics of my diaper bag when i finish it. i'm really enjoying the making stuff for babies thing, but i haven't made anything for my baby yet.

....and we rock harder than you ever knew....

So many mamas! I'm due in about 3 weeks. I've been trying to get some crafting done throughout this pregnancy but I was so sick for the first few months! And I have a rambunctious 2-year old, so I haven't been able to get much done. Maybe someday I'll have time for crafts again, hah. Congrats everyone!

Ooh, congratulations, everyone!
I think little embroidered bibs, or a snuggly quilt. My mom made one a few years ago for my little sister out of flannel and appliqued hearts on, and inside each one, she put a letter of my sister's name, so all the hearts spelled out 'Jacqueline'. It's adorable, and Jacqueline loves it. Also, my aunt made a little pillow to put under her baby's head for when she was bottlefeeding him.

i embroidered lots and lots of bibs,my son is now 3 and still he has new ones Smiley

further i made some paintings for the nursery

and i started to do a mural but finished it 2 months before moving (february 2006)

i'm due right now. i want her out of here!!!!
i'll have to post pics of her nursery mural (yes, i painted it myself... with waterbased, not enamel... so i'm not totally evil. plus i'm an artist, so she's used to it by now) i have NO more time and i still have to sew curtains, bedding and some diaper covers.

so basically, i'm posting to say DO YOUR PROJECTS BEFORE YOUR THIRD TRIMESTER!!!!  This is insane and stupid and I'm tired! Don't think you'll have tons of time and ability to do all of this throughout. i probably could've done better, but i broke my leg in the 7th month and we bought and moved into a new house THIS month.. what in the hell is my problem?!?!

the hardest thing is getting down on the ground and cutting fabric or painting etc. Luckily i didn't have to stand on a ladder or anything to paint (lots of help with that!) but it sure is difficult to get up and down, plus i have to pee every time i move.

i guess i'm just venting. I'm so tired of being pregnant. i'm ready to be a mom!!!!
