Gosh, I'm just not and it's not fun this time. Having dh be between jobs (well he has a job but it's becoming very clear that it's not going to work out) has just made this pregnancy kind of suck. Getting things together has just been so slow moving....

I have a list of things I need/want but I'm waking for something to give so I can move forward with it!! Anyone else dragging their feet or just not prepared??

I can get by with what I have. I dot necessarily need anything else so long as I can get by with minimums. My husband is a party pooper and doesn't agree that we need a new car seat for her. I will be getting a new swing for her.

I have her clothes all ready. And all of her diapers ready. Boobs will be ready when she gets here I just have to wait another 14 weeks or so.

I guess I should say I have all of the big items. It's the hand full of things I really want that I don't have. I am not going all out for this baby by any means so it's depressing that I can't just buy the swaddlers I want for him and the last couple baby things. I'm just having a rough couple days and feeling sorry for myself. This month was supposed to ease some of the stress and it's just not :/

All we need left are diapers.'ll pull out clothing when we switch out winter. I'll see what I have from the boys that'll work for him. We had this problem my last pregnancy.

We have a lot of stuff from having a previous daughter so I'm not stressing.

DH has some priorities of things he wants to do which do not involve the new baby and that's fine too. I still have a baby shower and a few things on that list. All in all we would be fine if she came tomorrow minus diapers lol

I'm dragging too. I'm swamped at work right now, trying to clean things out and rearrange our apt to make room, but I get so tired that it's slow going. Plus my mom is having heart surgery next week. And- even though I'm almost 28 weeks- I still kind of can't believe I'm having a baby. I had 3 losses, and its still hard to accept that everything will be okay.

Well I guess worse case a few diapers and wipes and I could make do but there are a lot of things I still want to do. We have just been really busy with other things for the last couple of months. Just started back working on baby stuff today but with a 4-year old, a DH who travels a lot and my lack of energy it is pretty slow going!

Yeah......we don't even have the dresser yet.....but its coming in on Saturday so then I can start kicking butt and setting stuff up. I kept tons of stuff from DD so Im pretty sure I have most of the essentials. I just didn't bother going through it until this dresser came in.

We have enough that if she was born today, we'd make it a couple weeks. Except diapers, you've all reminded me that we need to get some diapers.

But really, we're not ready at all. Her room is not quite done being painted, so no furniture in it yet. I have the very basics in clothes (waiting for hand-me-downs from my sil for the rest). We have a bassinet she'll sleep in for a couple weeks, at least. I think all the complications with this pregnancy have kind of overshadowed the excitement of getting ready, like if we're ready too soon, maybe she'll come too soon.

I'm not ready room-wise or baby stuff-wise, but I CANNOT wait for my baby to get here! I'm so, so excited and am getting anxious (in a good way) to meet him or her!

Hope everything turns out well and she recovers quickly! And I can imagine your worry. Hugs!

We don't need much so if she were born tomorrow we would have everything. I bought a couple outfits for her yesterday which were the first things besides the crib that we have purchased They weren't really a need but I couldn't help myself. The only other thing we need to get is the new stroller and I will probably be buying some more cloth diapers to add to our stash but that stuff could easily wait until after she arrives.

I kind of know the feeling...if dh had his way we wouldn't really be buying anything so we could save the money but there is just something about nesting that makes you want to prepare for the baby even if you already have almost everything. I don't technically need the stuff I purchased yesterday but I kind of feel like she deserves some of her own stuff that is new too.

The only big thing I had to buy was a car seat and things for the nursery to be painted. My parents gave us a Christmas check and we spent it on those two things but still need a light for the nursery and a curtain minimum.

But, being that I have two girls and he's our first boy- all the little things really add up! I am just mostly feeling like going and having a huge spending spree and yeah no that's not going to be a good idea for a long time to come!

I am seriously stressing out lately. We need a new vehicle. We are SO close to being debt free after the over spending on the wedding this past summer.... UGH. It makes me so unhappy that I might have to add more debt to that amount when we are so close. It honestly is just making me sick to my stomach when I think about it. Its so silly.

Other than needing a new vehicle I think we have all the needed items.

I am not ready at all, we haven't received the furniture yet or any of the baby items I have on my registry....I am not even sure if there is a shower or if my family has just been buying things for me which is so sweet but I wonder when they are going to give it to me if there is no shower.... 12.5 weeks left, not that much time!

I have boobs and diapers so I'm calling that "ready"!

Few more things I'd like to get in the house (our swing which we loaned, a changing table because we gave ours away) but mostly we're set with stuff from baby #1.
