Ohhh... EVERYTHING! lol We've done NOTHING. Gotten nothing, nadddddda lol
Mainly for 2 reasons: First, we want to know gender before we look at anything. Second, because we're planning to move in the next few months and we think we'd be better off not buying any furniture until we move because we can't clutter our house up so it's more likely to sell

We still need a monitor and baby bath stuff. We bought our car seat, sling and bottles last week and yesterday I bought some pacifiers just in case and little travel sizes of shampoo and conditioner and stuff for my hospital bag. Getting ahead of myself lol!

I don't think we need too much else. Dh and the kids will go out and buy a coming home outfit after baby is born and we know the gender.

I'm sure there's more we need but I can't think right now

Oh I also bought this from Amazon during the week. Amazon.com: Jolly Jumper Arctic Sneak A Peek Infant Car Seat Cover Black: Baby
Love it!

Everything! I'm hoping my hubby will take a new job and we'll have more money for things. We just have to watch our spending for the time being. Once I start picking up more hours at work, we should be good. And I haven't bought anything because we don't know the sex yet.

So far we've cleaned out the room which will be the baby's and we put DS's changing table in there. I ordered the crib the other day so that should be here soon. I like to have the crib even though we co-sleep / use bassinet for the first 6 months usually. So we got DS's old bassinet set up in our room.

What's still on my list for the things I want to buy/do is a crib mattress, a Beco carrier, more cloth diapers, dresser and other furniture, and paint the baby's room.

I've got to
@Paint dd's room, find out gender/ start setting out girls things OR start buying boy clothes/ blankets

Get a small deep freezer and in early July I'm going to make this; 46 freezer meals in four hours for $95! | Money Saving Mom®

That way I won't have to cook for a month after i have the baby (and we wont live off pizza either)

I need diapers, baby care items, hospital bag items (just in case of transfer), look into and set up mothers day out solution for dd,
There is more but this is all that's coming to me right now.

I've got to clear out our spare room which will become the babys room, rearrange the den to accomadate all the kids toys that are currently upstairs and we need to declutter to make room for all the new baby stuff. I've got several pink things leftover from my niece so if this one is a boy we'll have to shop for some boy items!

How about I tell you what I did get, haha. I have a diaper bag on its way, its back ordered so hopefully comes before baby! I have a wrap on the way. I got a boppy. And some pacifiers and a few gender neutral items. Oh I also got lotions and diapers from size 1-6 so I need to get some newborn and a pack of preemie, because even on a 7lbs 15ozs boy newborns were too big for a week! I'm waiting to meet a friend for a bouncer seat.

I have been buying things every pay since things are tight financially right now for me. I have the crib, stroller/carseat combo, a couple bottles, breast pump, swing, bouncer seat, a baby bath, a box of sizes 1,2,and3 diapers, a boppy, some clothes and a diaper pail..

I still need clothes, bath/health items, diapers, changing table, play mat, burp cloths, blankets, crib bedding, a pack n play, bassinet, pacifiers, baby carrier, car mirror, humidifier, diaper bag, high chair, car window shades...

I think that will about do it.. Lots of big stuff done.. lots of small things to go.. but I did save the stuff I dont mind getting used for last so I can get them at yardsales this spring since its starting to warm up. However, I keep feeling like Im forgetting some things.
