Do you have anything left? All done nesting?I cleaned until like 2 am cause it hurts to lie down and figured id be tired no matter what.

I still need to paint my sons picture. I've painted something for each of the kids i just have no clue what to do.
I finally got someplace for him to sleep. (Took me long enough)
diapers are stocked (4 small pkg and 2 large boxes of size1 and next week i start on size2 so i dont have to worry about it im co-clothing cause 5 people worth of laundry not including me gets to be a large enough task)
wipes are kinda stocked
fix swing (still need to find the bolt that attaches seat oops lost it in the move.)
have bouncer
bath tub
robes clothes towels wash cloths and blankets all accounted for

Finally ordered bras and bought a few tank tops

I have everything I need, but it's real minimal compared to other people.

The only thing I'd like more of is cheap bras for nursing and a boba wrap/carrier thingy.

She could come today and we'd be fine. I like to give thus house a deep clean and get school stuff ready before baby gets here but if it doesn't happen we'll be fine.

I think I have all of the necessities taken care of for me and baby. I'm starting to get "nesty" so I am finally starting to cross things off my crazy long list of things I want to organize/clean. I was up until 1am organizing my pantry last night.. what in the what? lol

We are ready, completely. The only thing I have left is like one load of baby clothes that can be washed in dreft but its such a small load I probably won't do it until I can add some worn baby clothes to it! Otherwise I have all my nesting projects complete. A once over of daily cleaning duties will done by my mom or a friend before we bring baby home from hospital.

I need to pack the hospital bag and clean/vacuum my van so we can move car seats and install the baby seat. As far as buying I need to get some nursing pads and more size 1 diapers. I got tons of diapers at my shower but for some reason everyone bought size 2.

Oh carseat. Yea, DH has to install that for the ever-dreaded hospital transfer if it's needed.

We got the car seat installed... sorta. DH failed at this and read the directions wrong. I figured it out but its not done since we are using the truck to move things tomorrow (FX), the backseat will be needed.

I bought pads and witch hazel, going to make some frozen ones this weekend once we are settled. I washed a load of new born clothes/blankets/hats/socks/PJs and packed the diaper bag. We don't have wipes IN the bag because I found the travel case for them AFTER packing the large bulk sized boxes. I will wash all the pump stuff and bottles once we get moved. I wiped down and re-packed the pack n play & the changing table/napper attachment.
That's all though!
Still tearing down the current house in prep for the move that may/may not happen. Its almost 1pm and still no approval from the USDA
I am hoping we hear something after lunch!

I'm ready. There is always something to do around here but if the baby waited until it was all finished her siblings would be in college. But we are ready enough which is more than I can say for the other 3 times, so all is good!

All done except for a few last minute things! Finishing the nursery this weekend Most of her clothes are washed, but I have another load I'd like to do. I'm getting the cloth diapers "prepped" (they're all new so they have to be washed 5-6 times for absorbency), but I have about 100 newborn disposable diapers we'll be using to start out with anyway.

My breast feeding camis came in the mail yesterday, along with her diaper pail liners and more cloth wipes. I can't think of anything else we're waiting on or need!

I have some more stuff I want to do around the house, but besides that it's just a waiting game now!

We need to get the car seat in and I should probably pack my bag too. Other than that, we are probably as ready as we're going to get. I'm much more relaxed about things this time around!!! Lol

We have everything we need, I would love to have a serious cleaning day in the house but things have been really stressful lately and I have been staying out of the house as much as possible, we have our bags and baby boys bags packed for the hospital and are just waiting for labor to hit!

I have what I need but could always come up with "extras."

I'm still unsure how breastfeeding/pumping is going to work out so I don't have anything related to that. I figure I'll get it after baby comes. The hospital is 20 minutes from my house with Walmart is 10 minutes from the hospital, Target is 20 and Babies R Us is 30 so nothing is far away if/when I need stuff.

I may pick up some Tucks pads for after delivery if I remember.

I'm almost finished painting the bookshelves for the baby's room. Maybe I'll finish today?

The room isn't finished but that won't be done until later anyway. It'll stay the playroom/baby's room until we figure out what to do with the large entertainment center (and tv) that's in there. One day we'll get my dresser from my mom's house for the twins and pass the cube storage to the baby. I'm not in a rush.
Mom to 4 girls - age 11 (1/05), 9 year old twins (1/07), 21 months (7/14) and baby BOY is due May 26, 2016.

I have mostly everything together. I really need to get all the stuff from the list of household items my midwife has asked for together in one spot in our room. I have everything on it already, though.
I want to get some witch hazel and some pads and prep those for the freezer. And I just want to clean in general. Other than that, I am all ready. =)

We have everything, but still need to put things together. Right now we are putting together her dresser.
