I am not ready, but we are taking a minimalist approach to this baby, anyway. I will have a co-sleeper given to us and the only thing I need to buy is a carseat. I have cloth diapers and will be making a few covers - I will probably just get newborn disposables anyway. I have two boobs and some newborn clothes, so we are good.
My main stress is getting Carter's room ready so the nursery will be available for the baby. I'm more worried about the adjustment for Carter than anything because baby will be in our room for a few months anyway. But to get his room ready we need to get the basement finished and that hasn't even started yet :-/. It's supposed to be done in the next couple months but I'm finding that hard to believe.
As far as things to buy for baby we just need a bouncy seat, diapers, double stroller, and carrier. And honestly the only need is diapers, we have a bouncy seat (it's just girly in case this is a boy) and the other two could wait. We need some clothes too, but I'll get most of that after baby is born since were team green.
I'm trying not to stress beside ultimately I know we have everything we need or it's just a quick run to Walmart away but I'll definitely
Feel better once Carter's room is ready so we can turn the nursery over to baby stuff!!
Thank you Vicki... For the adorable siggy!
We just have to put the crib together and buy some diapers. I want to do the crib soon as it will be easier before I get bigger and more uncomfortable. Sams club has diaper sales early jan so we will be stocking up then.
We're minimalists as well, plus if the ultrasound are right and it's a girl we have nearly everything we need. We do need to buy a new crib for her; we moved DD to a toddler bed but the paint on the old crib is chipping. I want a new stroller, although that's not a need I really hate the one we have! We might look into buying a bouncer used because we never had one with DD. Aside from that we'll be using our cloth diapers from DD, and her clothing, although I will still probably buy a few things new.
We have a lot to do. Get married - so everything that goes along with that. Now that the holidays are over we are in wedding mode until march. We have to figure out our living situation, so move FH in, rearrange the apartment, figure out what to do about his apartment and with his stuff for now. We have to figure out sleeping arrangements for DS and probably find a bed for him, then turn his toddler bed back into a crib. We need to get car seats and clothes and diapers and probably some other necessities. Need to make a birth plan and do the hospital tour too.

I still need to do the hospital tour also. We also need to figure out who will watch DD while DH and I are in the hospital.
As for here, we need to get the new window for her room, new carpet (those should both be done within the month) and then paint. We'll need a crib, but she'll be rooming with us in a bassinet for the first few months so no rush. I have a theme I want, but after looking at Babies R Us yesterday for things I think I'll have to order online. They only had 1 star thing and it was a stuffed music star. Still will need bedding for the crib. Clothes. Diapers. We have some toys already (since BRU didn't have anything for bedding or decorations I wanted I used my g/c for some toys).
So lots to do, but I'm not worried as we have the bassinet already and bedding for that. Oh I'll need a breast pump as well as some bags/bottles for storage and feeding.
We are focusing on moving before we start buying everything the baby will need.
We have nothing left over from our dd except for cloth diapers and the crib.
We are waiting for a house to open up and hopefully that will happen at the end of January.
Then I can go on a shopping spree. Hehehe
*Thank you *Kiliki* for the beautiful siggy!
We have not done a thing. We do have a crib I bought second hand and it's super nice but does not match furniture already in room I want to paint it all or sell furniture and buy matching dresser but I doubt that's going to happen. Other than that we have nothing. I'm getting a little worried bc my DS came in four weeks from now! (30 weeks). But he was in NICU for two months so I guess we would still have time. My SIL has stuff in her attic from my niece but we have yet to go through it.
Have not done a thing. Not even a new outfit. I feel kinda bad about it but I haven't seen any nb things for little boys that I really HAD TO HAVE. We're waiting until after taxes to get the big stuff, and I really only have a list of 4 things that I need. So..... I guess I'm still mostly ready from DS1 yet. lol
We still need to finish the baby's room, but as far as things go we mainly need blankets, clothes, and diapers. The bassinet was a bust but we exchanged it for a Rock N Play. The crib has been ordered, mattress for it has already come in, high chair has been ordered. A friend gave us a tub but we'll probably need a new one because it doesn't have an infant support - will most likely get one at our shower. A friend is giving us a swing, someone says they'll give us a Pack N Play. We've been given a Bumbo chair and I ordered a cover for it because the chair is stained. We still need bottles and a breast pump. That's all I can think of right now!
