With DD2, we went very minimalist. We bought a swing just because she had silent apnea/acid reflux. That was it. I'm a member of this thing in town called Life Choices. It's a Christian pregnancy center. I donate all my baby clothes and gear there, and I get clothes, diapers, and gear from them. You can seriously get everything from them. Cribs, changing tables, toys, etc. I've only done diapers and clothes. Minimalist that go. =)

I won't be buying a bunch of gear this time, but there are a few things I'm getting that aren't needed.

Tummy Tub
a nice wrap
Breast Friend Pillow
tandem stroller
and hopefully tons of boy stuff

Since Alice has autism, we have a lot of baby toys still. We have toddler mattresses. All I really need are clothes at this point. I already have diapers and all the gear needed.

We still have all of our stuff from our first pregnancy but I want to get myself a good diaper bag (not a crap one like the first time around) and we just need a couple odds and ends. I'm going to buy a new bedding set too even if we have another girl. We feel like even if it's our second they deserve a new bedding set

First Ultrasound:
5wks 5 days - Heartbeat 120

12 wks - Heartbeat 151

18 wks - Heartbeat 174

May 7th - It's a Baby BOY!

26 wks - Heartbeat 142

I actually am set for most everything except clothes if it's a girl. I am an avid knitter, so once we find out what the gender is, I plan to knit a baby blanket and some clothes. I do want to buy more cloth diapers if it's a girl. Will probably sell half my stash to be able to get more. I have to buy DS2 a new car seat since he's outgrown his Britax, so I may just buy both carseats (Radian) at once and sell the Britax.

I'm pretty sure I'll go nuts if it's a girl. I don't have any big ticket items to buy, though.

I have one of each and we always planned on having three. My oldest is only 4, so most of our things are still good. We will buy a swing, I'll make another ring sling cause I gave mine away last year, and I'm planning to design my own diaper bag because I HATE all the ones found in the stores, I have NEVER found a diaper bag that I thought was worth anything at all.
otherwise, there are two fun items we will eventually buy, one is a teddy bear, both of my other babies first present was a teddy bear. And the other item will be a 'coming home' outfit, although this seems stupid because we are planning a home birth..lol.. so i guess it is a 'coming out' outfit...lol.

I already bought a couple cloth diapers. Once I have my OB appointment and see the baby on ultrasound I'll feel more confident about buying stuff. I plan to get a new breast pump and accessories once I have my ultrasound.

For this baby I need;
New carrier (ergo or beco)
Convertible car seat

I just need a bassinet or something for the baby to sleep in our room. We're not doing a nursery like we did last time. Plus I bought all the big things neutral so we're good.
