I would really like a big comfy rocking chair/glider for the nursery... I hate the look of typical $100-$300 gliders, but the chairs I love are closer to $1000-$1500... I'm not interested or really able to shell out that kind of cash for a chair right now, so I think we may forgo it all together. (or at least revisit it down the road)

Baby will be in our room for the first 3-6 months at least anyways, so most night time feedings etc will probably be in bed. And during the day we have a rocker recliner in our living room.

It's one of those things, I'd like, but just don't see how we are going to make it work right now, so it can be skipped.

Anything high on your "I want" list, that you probably just aren't getting?

I would love a glider, or a recliner.

Something I wanted that is not on our do-able list, is an Angel Care monitor. It's probably about $100 and just not high enough on the financial totem pole to be something we're going to do. I'm probably going to buy a regular monitor (sound only) because our son lost the handset to his a few months back.

I would say a rocker too. If we were planning more kids, I might consider it, but dh already got the big v so that is closed. I can't think of anything else.

I'd love to get a double stroller, but I just can't justify the expense right now.

I've bought or already had everything I want. I'm actually trying to keep it simple this time around.

You should look on Ebay! I bet you could find a cheaper one. I have sold a lot of DD's baby stuff for dirt cheap, just to get a little something for it.

I want a $200 diaper bag, but I have a very nice one already, so I'm trying to be sensible.

Probably the things I am holding back on that I would "want" if we had the money to blow is boutique style clothes. I can't wait to dress her up but I know it is silly to spend 100s of dollars are clothes she will probably just be uncomfortable in.

I will splurge on a few outfits for pictures along the way

I'd love a Woombie......but they don't have them here in Canada, and shipping to Canada is CRAZY expensive.....so one woombie would end up being over $50.....and that's newborn size only.

I found an alternative at babies r us here though, called a Swaddle Pod.....so I hope it works as well.

Oh gosh, I am the cheapest person on earth... well, the poorest too. I literally did not buy anything for this baby. Was going to re-use my DD's clothes (most of which were gifts btw).

But I always stare at the rocking chairs wishing I can have one... I also want good nursing bras and one of those bras to pump. I also always wanted a jogger (now a double stroller jogger). What else? I like how lots of people invest in decorating a nursery and buying beautiful crib sheets/bedding and wall decals etc. But I can't spend on any of that. It would be awesome if I woke up one day and found all those at my doorstep lol

probably one of the bras that you can pump in. I hate pumping with a passion and that would make it easier.

I'm with you! I love the cute nursery decor but can't afford any of it.
With DS, the only thing I bought for him was one single newborn sweater. The rest of his stuff was given to us, including a whole bunch of diapers. We didn't have to buy diapers for months.
