Yeah, I need a lot also! We just got a second crib for caroline yesterday. I have to get another matress for it tho. And then I need a new dresser for her, and probably one for ella too so I can move ellas clothes to her and wyatts room. I need to crib bedding from potterybarn that's backordered, and everything to decorate his nursery, clothes, new boppy cover and a swing, new car seat for caroline, clothes, blankets, etc for the boy, the list goes on and on. Were just now getting started. Its gonna be busy until were ready. I also need an inline double stroller for going places without a shopping cart. I have a double jogger, but that won't work for inside places. Oh, and we need to figure out if were gonna put a dvd player installed in the car, or jimmy rig two new screens on our protable one that attaches to the headrests....and now you see why I've been annoyed with dh for investing money into stocks. Haha we need to use that money now for preparations!

I have all the big things, and more newborn size onesies and sleepers than she will wear now; thanks to an online yardsale(I got like 75 like-new pieces for $40!)
But I'm stressing too, still. My shower will be at the end of March (hopefully) so we will see what I am left needing. It is just a lot of smaller things though; clothes, diapers, wipes etc.

We need almost everything. Even the big stuff bc my old stuff was all pink. Can't do that for this guy. It makes it very stressful though.

Even with needing pretty much everything new this time..we aren't going to get much. Just need clothes, a new car seat for DS2 so we can pass his MyRide down to Trinity, and then probably a bouncy seat or the rock-n-play swing. I won't need a stroller since we got me a Beco to wear her. We have a playpen with bassinet for her to sleep in if needed for a few weeks/months while we transition DS2 out of the crib.

I think overall we are looking to spend less than $275 on everything..$120 for DS2's car seat, between $40-60 on the bouncy or rock-n-play..and then the rest on clothes.

I feel like I need a lot. I have the crib, travel system, and dresser. As far as smaller stuff I have bathtub, boppy, and clothes that are new and some that belonged to my boys.

DH asked me what bottles, diapers, and bath stuff I use. He was being evasive, but I suspect they are going to do something for us at his job. So I'm going to wait on all that stuff to see what I get first.

I was considering a baby shower or sprinkle at my MIL's. But she has ticked me off pretty bad recently so I don't think I am going to do it now. It was not going to be a huge group anyway. So I wasn't counting on the gifts to be a part of my baby stash.

I had to start over. Thankfully im OCD about getting stuff ready so i have gotten a lot of the big things, and i am stocked on clothes. I do have a few pink blankets left from DD, so i might pick up a pack of muslin blankets, so protect her from the sun. And i think i need my baby monitor, babyhawk and diaper bag. Other than that, im not concerned about the "little" things. I know it will all fall into place.

My biggest decision is do i cloth diaper her, or do Sposies. I cant make up my mind.

You have way more than me! IF he was to come now though, it would be OK. That is what I keep telling myself. I have the basics and that is enough.
