Not a single thing. I feel sort of bad but he is our third boy, and there is nothing we really need. Like, at all. I will probably get him a few things of his own at some point later when we have more money. I don't see us getting much though.

Just a pack of cute onesies. He is going to have TONS of clothes from DS#1, so I won't have to really buy him any until he's ready for shoes or I want something special for him.

I need to start a layaway on his crib and stuff at BRU. I wanna sell the furniture in the guest room though so I can use that money to pay for his stuff.

A lot. I go a little crazy with the prep as soon as I find out the sex. I did with both boys as well.

We got her wall letters (just JO, they are 2' tall!) and I want to go to the fabric store and look for curtain and bed skirt fabric this week. My mom makes our "room set" (which is basically just the bed skirt and curtains). I have gotten a bunch of clothes for her, as I knew I would. I got some awesome new girly diapers and some woolies for over fitteds. I bought one pink blanket and one pink towel. My mom bought the outfit that I think is going to be her "going home" outfit. But I think it's gonna be a hard choice. I had difficulties figuring out what to put the boys in for their going home outfits. I apparently am indecisive in that regard.

We don't need furniture or anything though, so it's easy to start with the small stuff and get carried away quickly.

We purchased his whole furniture set and all the décor for his room. My mother in law is making his bedding and we have received a couple outfits as gifts. We also have a baseball going home outfit for him that we actually bought when we were dating. It's a newborn size so I hope he fits! My husband is pretty tall so there's a chance he'll be too long for it.

We have registered for his carseat, stroller, and other necessities. We are getting excited!

I have been given some items, but I haven't bought anything at all for the baby yet. I have to wait until we're all moved. Can't wait to start, though!!!

Some summer rompers, a cruising motion soother chair, and 4 velour crib sheets. I have a list and a schedule to buy things. I'm giving myself $100 a month until delivery to buy baby goodies. I want to go on a shopping frenzy, but I'm going to wait until March. When I go on Spring Break in mid-March, I will go NUTS!

I've gotten her a matching outfit to my other daughter, some booties, a bath buddy, swaddlers and that's pretty much it.

nothing. We just confirmed on Thursday that she is all she. I need nothing since we still have all DD's things. We need to buy DD's new bedroom furniture and get her moved out of the nursery. I'd like to look at a double stroller to see if there is anything I like. I'm not sure how much we will use it. It might be easier to just use two strollers if we go anywhere that we need one. The other thing I would like is a video monitor.

I'd like to get her a coming home outfit that is all hers. The only thing we NEED is diapers.

Nothing either. I am actually thinking of using all my baby girl's stuff for the new baby even though it's a BOY! haha Good thing I bought half of them in neutral colors though we did receive a lot of girlie clothes. They'll be too little to remember, plus, they'll wear them like a few weeks..? that's it.

I bought the Fisher price Rock and Play Sleeper, 2 outfits, a boppy, one of those activity play mats, and 2 nursing covers. Although this is my 3rd I have nothing from my last son because they are 8 years apart and I got rid of everything.

My sister did tell me that she and my mom will be throwing me a "Sprinkle" so Im excited about that. Im starting to feel a little panicked that I wont have enough or what we need by the time he gets here but I know its me starting to nest.

I haven't bought anything big but did get some clothing, including a cute Christmas outfit that was on clearance at Baby's R Us and a couple of cloth diapers. I don't really want to go overboard yet since my sisters are planning on throwing me a shower. It's hard though. I have to completely avoid the baby section when I am at stores!

So far I've just bought some newborn binkies and a 4-pack of long-sleeve onesies. I have one newborn sweater knitted up and another one in the works.

Clothes, it's a good thing it's a boy or I would be even more clothes crazy. I'm not sure what to expect for my baby shower. I know people often don't buy off the registry, but kind of waiting to see what I get at the shower. We are supposedly getting a hand me down crib/dresser from one of my husband's coworkers, and it is supposed to be good quality (they make a lot more money so I think they spent a lot on it). It's not too old, but I guess I will have to find out more so I can make sure it is not a recall.
Very confused on what to do with a stroller. Do I get the infant carseat/ stroller combo or just a regular stroller? I have read different reviews on baby bjorn and other brands, but it sounds like most are not for newborns. I am very klutzy so I can't see myself using a baby sling, too worried I will drop the baby out of it.

Can I suggest the Mei Tai? I had a baby bjorn and another wrap carrier and they killed my back. You can wear it different ways and it's not like you need a lot of practice to put it on and stuff. It carries a lot of weight comfortably, so you can use it for longer. AND! It's totally customizable!

I have one and my husband loves it because we got two different fabrics on each side and he has his side and I have mine.
