Logistics of adding a domain to Cloudflare account

I’m in the process of planning my move to Cloudflare. In reviewing the documentation, for a full setup (https://developers.cloudflare.com/dns/zone-setups/full-setup/setup/) I am curious to know if I can pause for a period of time between Steps 2 and 3.

In other words, when I add my domain, can I take my time reviewing my records for accuracy before I actually update my nameservers, or does that have to occur immediately after?

Yes, Cloudflare will typically keep your domain in the ‘pending’ state for a few weeks while continuously checking to see if your nameservers have changed, where you can indeed continue to change and manage DNS entries before changing NS.

Thank you, Judge, for your input. Very much appreciated.
