Psh, nowhere even close. Room totally not set up, no clothes pulled out, no bags packed, names not decided. I'm counting on AT LEAST another 10 weeks to get there. Hopefully closer to 12!

I plan on packing in a week or two. I have most all of the supplies I need except a crib. We had hoped my daughter would want to give up her crib for a "big girl" toddler bed but she isn't the slightest bit interested. So instead of getting her old crib, we'll likely have to purchase one. We do have a bassinet though in case we need to wait before getting the crib. Maybe the DD will decide big girl beds are cool before the baby is born?

Not yet but working on it. Nursery is almost done besides the changing table. Haven't had my shower yet but we we could survive with what we have right now if we had to.
We have everything we need for the home birth, all the supplies came today!

My shower isn't until 2/23 but I have all the essentials. The stuff on my registry is just filler stuff.

I have cloth diapers but they aren't prepped, washed etc. I just this weekend bought a dresser then I went through all the baby clothes and sorted, washed, dried, folded and put away everything through 6 months. I got the cosleeper out and it is upstairs but I won't set it up for awhile. I have finally decided what carseat I want and I have a trade in so I'll do it before that trade in sale ends Feb 10th. I still will need to buy stuff for ME postpardum. I had a list somewhere and there are a couple things I still want to pick up but I am getting closer

No, I really haven't started. I just ordered some replacement parts for my pump & bfing supplies, and probably going carseat shopping this weekend. Hopefully then I'll start getting my act together.

um...no, not even close. I generally wait until about 34 weeks to really get everything ready, including my hospital bag. My baby shower is not until 3/2, so I figured I would just wait until then. I do, however, have all of my big items. I luckily saved them after my ds was born, and they are neutral, so I can use everything that I have.

Where did you order your pump supplies?

I'm not really ready. I did start working on sorting out clothes, though. Need to get some gear out of the attic, buy a carseat, get replacement parts for the pump, get the rooms situated...I'm sure there's more. I probably won't pack until I'm in labor, but I do plan to have lists ready for DH.

I have the original Medela Pump in Style. Bought it right before they released the Pump in Style Advanced back in 2006, so the tubing is harder to find. I almost ordered from Amazon until I realized they were all knockoffs, not Medela brand. And of course that tubing is currently unavailable from Medela's online store, but I found a store online called The Nurture Center that sells the real Medela tubing.
https://www.nurturecenter.com/

I got all new parts, plus lanolin, a bunch of freezer storage bottles & bags, and a nursing bra that hopefully will fit...all for about $100 & free shipping!

Yesterday I hung up a bunch of clothes in the closet, but most of them are 6-12 months, so thats not really helpful, and other than that, it doesn't even look like a baby is on its way in our appt. I am having the hardest time getting DF to do any prep, and I can't do any more without him... Im on the verge of being a really pissy pregnant lady and re arranging the apartment while he is at work and he will just have to deal!

OCDers Unite!!!! I am right there with you girl. My bag is 100% packed, her nursery is about 85 % done, the last 15% is just fluff. Her cloths are washed, hung and sized in her closet. As soon as she is strong and ready so am I!
