It might be because I work full-time, but I have not done a darn thing to the nursery, or bought anything of substance for Blake! I registered, which for a FTM was QUITE a feat, but I just don't even know where to start on the rest of it! I think I will wait until I have at least one or two of my showers before I start the nursery so that I know what I'm working with. It's just so much to do at once! I promised myself (I have the summers off) that I would finish the nursery by July.

I haven't done a thing, but I know it will all get done, especially the clothes buying, HA! I stressed with my first 3, my last baby and this one I didn't. It does get done. I'm just getting excited to go girlie shopping.

Yep, all day every day. I'm trying not to be so anxious but its not working lol maybe its an early form of nesting?

Btw, you are one step ahead of us because we STILL havent registered lol its been on my to do list for weeks but somehow we end up cleaning every weekend instead

Oh I forgot to mention, you will be nesting BAD in the last trimester and will get it done, or at least the important stuff, so don't stress now

We haven't started on our nursery yet either, so you're definitely not alone there. We have all our furniture but it's still in the box since we wanted to paint before assembling it. And we have to buy our bedding set before we can even start painting so we know if the colors match. I work full-time too and am exhausted on my days off... I have the nesting urge but no energy to actually do it! And getting registered is a big task you can cross off your list, so that is progress

I haven't bought or thought about buying a darn thing. I know he's coming, but I haven't done anything and always so busy with the three others sporting events to think about setting aside time to shop for anything.

I feel very behind too. We have no name picked out (or at least DH is not sharing). We have clothes and I bought a pack of diapers on Saturday, but otherwise, we have nothing!

I put the crib up and received a bunch of hand me down clothes, but I haven't bought anything myself except for a wrap and some headbands. I did start working on the mobile this week.

I haven't registered either! I feel like I have to take half a day off work to do it because there is no way I'm going to BRU on a Saturday!

I have a crib and a dresser. Other than that, I feel like I have nothing. All the things that you need to actually take care of a baby... I feel so clueless and don't know where to start.

We're behind too... we have some clothes and bottles and that's all. We're hoping to move before baby comes so we're holding out on buying all the big stuff for now. But if we can't sell the house, we'll be out of luck and having to do it all last minute

We are getting married in May so i am waiting til after that. Otherwise it would be too much at once. Lol. A friend gave me a baby tub yesterday so I have that. But that's all. I am trying to stay relaxed about it. Baby's room not even cleaned out yet.

Not doing much of anything. I have gotten some hand-me-downs and some promises of hand-me-down stuff. Haven't thought or worried about it too much! It's just a baby; doesn't take a lot of STUFF!

With my last I didn't do anything until the weekend before the monday I was supposed to be induced. (Didn't end up going that monday YAY!!) So it was a full weekend of staying up late clearing out the room, shampooing, painting etc.
