Originally it was me, a friend "Beth", and another girl "Jayne" looking for an apartment. A few months pass, and I find us a great place 3 bedroom for a nice price. However, last week Jayne asked if her husband could stay with us for a few days. In this arrangement, Beth and Jayne would share a bathroom and I would have my own.
I did all the work to find this house, and I was already planning furniture to fit in the room. However, I agreed for her husband to stay a for a while because it would make rent cheaper, but I thought it would only be about a month.
Now, she says he's staying at least 4-5 months. And though I love the fact that rent will be cheaper, I was planning on bringing a large pet cage, dresser, my bed, bookshelf, and night stand. But Beth is upset because she doesn't want to share a bathroom (even half the day) with Jayne and her husband.
I need outside advice. Am I being selfish or am I justified?

Was it already decided that you would get the master bedroom? If so, then it shouldn't be a discussion anymore. It's a bathroom, not a bedroom lol I don't understand why Beth is fussing over sharing it. Hell, she should be lucky that you girls are even trying to accommodate her boyfriend during his stay.
To play Devils Advocate, if together Beth and her boyfriend will be paying the most rent, then I could see them getting the master. BUT it's kind of late for that if who gets what room has already been established, and now she wants to change her mind. It doesn't work that way. Sounds like Beth should suck it up.
(Side note, I hope I haven't misinterpreted anything).1
