Just the stroller left to buy and I'm having to return the valances that match her bedding since the windows are too big for them so I'll need to find some replacement curtains also.

Stroller, car seat, glider, up to 6 months diaper covers. I think that's all.

EEEEkkkkk!!! This thread scares me!!!!!

We have done almost nothing yet!
We actually just told close friends that we are expecting last week.

We discussed names for about 10 minutes and decided we are going to continue our tradition of using dads initals. We did not even talk about any specific names.

I have picked out the bedding (online) but I have not ordered it yet.

Nothing is is bought for the baby or the nursery.

Soooooo I guess I still have the WHOLE list to check off!

I really need to get started but I always have that "acute high risk" thought in my mind and dont want something to happen to the baby and have to come home to an empty nursey. Not sure when I will get started shopping.

Everything. We have nothing. DH and I are going on a date this Sunday (we have like one a year) and since it's Mothers' Day I'm hoping he'll take me shopping for baby stuff at Target and BRU since we'll be up that way but I'm not going to hold my breath. He seems dead set on having a mad scramble to get everything together that last month, which for me means July since I'm technically due at the tail end of that month. I've even written down on the calendar every week that I tick over all the way up to my due date but he's still managing to ignore it. Sorry, that turned into a rant but it's the reason we have nothing done yet so...

I still need my playpen, I've picked one out and am actually planning on buying it later this week.

Clothes, we still need clothes.

A name would be good too.

A manual breast pump and freezer bags for it.

Maybe some more diapers, I should have plenty now, but I have to check.

A big diaper bag since we're doing cloth, I need more room.

A diaper sprayer for the toilet.

Another wet bag for upstairs, possibly a trash can with a lid to put it in.

A wet bag for the diaper bag.


I think that's it.

I only have my carrier and a few outfits. I need everything else. It's really starting to stress me out. I'm starting to wonder if we're even going to get it in time. The kids are draining our income right now, and it's limited as is.

Well up until Friday we were pretty much set, not that we got a new truck, we need new car seats.

I have everything else for the baby for the first 3 months or so but I'd like to stock up on winter clothes and a few good yard sales will take care of that.

Getting my girls into their own beds would be helpful too.

We needed so much but this last week has been productive. We just ordered our cloth diapers and bought our playpen. Still in need of waterproof mattress covers, bed sheets, diaper bags, some clothing, a breast pump, and a bigger car seat. everything else is just a want so we can get the rest later or once the baby has arrived.

Gah. EVERYTHINGGGGGGGGG. . . .

Okay - I am only keeping sane because we have everything we need for her to come home: My boobies, my bed, clothes [somewhere out in the garage, hah], a car seat, blankets and diapers.

However, as I've said before - We had everything set up early for DD1 [and by we, I mean myself. or my mother and I as DH was deployed]. So I feel so behind. 2.5 weeks until we move - And then it's Operation: Get ready for Adalyn.

-I've gotta go through DD1s boxes of clothes - Wash & organize them.
-I need to wipe down the crib and then set it back up.
-Clean the dresser.
-Wash the carseat - And install it.
-Hose down the bath seat.
-I want to make a new boppy cover - But I don't NEED that as we do have 1 cover.
-I would love to buy a 2nd boppy to keep upstairs.
-I need to make more cloth wipes & burp cloths [I have everything to do so].
-I would like to get a few more NB diapers [cloth].
-Set up her pack-n-play in our room [even though we'll most likely co-sleep, I like to have it for diaper changes. . . And storage, hah].
-Set up her bounce seat thing.
-Get her swing from my friend.
-Sanatize pacis.
-Find a homecoming outfit.

I also need to make her crib sheets, crib skirt and decorations - Which I plan to do next month with the help of my friend.

And I am sure there is more to be done/to get.

I suppose it would be easier to type the things I don't need (ha) but here are the things I still have yet to buy:

Crib
Changing Table
Changing Table Pad
Changing Table Cover
Diapers/Wipes/etc
Rug
Glider (technically purchased but still on order not yet received)
Double Stroller
Car Seat with three bases (me, DH, our nanny)
Bathtub
Boppy
Swing

I think that's it. Whew.

This is my husband too, but I think it's starting to get there with him now that I'm under 100 days.


We don't need a ton of stuff since I just had a boy last February but I still want some things, and need some things.

I need to finish making the diapers.
I just finished making a baby wrap, but I want a jersey wrap too so I need to get fabric for that.
I need to get clothes together. We don't have ANY clothes (I guess I passed on all of my clothes from my youngest).
I also need some new nursing pads and breastmilk bags.
I still need to buy my birth kit as well.
I'll need a crib eventually, but I'm thinking we'll get the crib for the baby for Christmas. We'll see.


I just got started, lol. I got a dresser this week. Now that I have a place to put things, I guess we can start getting them together.

I had a baby filled weekend! I got a ton of outfits, and had a surprise shower from my former coworkers so my list is shorter now But still long. Nothing we can't get buy without for a few weeks (so I think....I'm new lol). I'm not nearly as panicked as I was last week when I saw I'm now under 100 days!

We need just about everything. Also waiting on our shower in June. After, I guess we will head out and get the essentials we don't receive from the shower. I have bought the bed set for the nursery but have yet to get any of the furniture
