Everything LOL including more clothes. I don't need much more for decorating the room, though, so I can start that soon!
Thank you Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy!

I have bought some clothes for little miss but nothing else. We are waiting for our tax return to come in hopefully later this week and we will be buying all of her furniture, playyard, and some other things. Other than that we just need to order a new girly cover for DS's infant car seat, a new highchair, and then just clothes and bath stuff. We may get another bassinet but I am not sure.

We don't need much at all as I still have most everything from our boys. If we have a girl, I'll need some girl clothes, but otherwise we do all gender neutral big items and bedrooms. I will need to get some consumables: small disposable diapers, nursing pads, milk storage bottles, a couple new bottles/pacifiers, a couple new clothes for this baby only.

But, we are moving out of state in July, so we need a place to live, preschool for my older boys, and new doctors! And to clean out tons of stuff pre move (and before I get too uncomfortable to clean out closets). And to decide if we are going to have this baby born here or in our new home city. Just a few things to do!

We have to buy pretty much everything!!!
We are being given a crib & change table from family but haven't bought anything yet. Still waiting til we know the gender & waiting to announce to everyone other than family & close friends. I think I'm scared to buy stuff because I'm worried I will jinx this baby and it won't come! I'm glad we've got months to go still..

I'm a FTM so need everything! Most we'll be getting online, so shopping and research take a bit more time since I can't actually go look at things myself. I've been obsessively researching car seats the last few days, and also cloth diapers. I still need to figure out what we need/want and what we don't (thank goodness for places like this where I can ask and get advice!).

I know my MIL is itching to start shopping, so for now I'm working on just putting all this stuff on our baby registry and seeing what she and others decide to buy. Then we can get the rest ourselves (though obviously not waiting too long for the essentials).

We have nothing and have done nothing. Starting from scratch as my youngest is 12. I have looked a tiny bit but not really. Maybe in a month or two we will start.

My To Do List:
Finish Basement remodel- Our storage room is where the nursery is going to be so everything needs to go downstairs once its finished
Nursery- Paint, Decorate, Put together furniture
Buy- Cloth Diapers, Video Monitor, Nursery Decor(if it's a boy), Dresser, Rocking Chair [DH broke mine ]

We have everything else from DD but I need small cloth diapers. I didn't start with her until she was into a medium bc I received so many sposies at my shower. I also have a really cute bedding set someone gave me and I never returned it bc it was so darn cute and clearly marked clearance. So, if its a girl I am set. Just need the few items mentioned above.

This is our first and we have a very supportive family. My husband and i are waiting for our showers to go shopping to fill in any gaps. We made our registry already for boy and girl and will update in 2 weeks when we find out what our little one will be.

My mil has already told us she is geting the baby furniture/crib. I know clothes will be covered.

Um everything! We are in the middle of our HUGE bedroom/bathroom renovation and the nursery is currently filled with all our clothes and stuff from the bedroom. So until that is done, I cant do a thing!

I need everything!! I kept everything for years and years buying just replacement items as things wore out. All my boys are 4 1/2 years apart and after my moving from my house (after living there 12 years) I got rid of everything , but the crib and matching changing table.

we have to wait until we find out if baby is a boy/girl. I have a pink/brown stroller and I still have some girl clothes left but I have nothing for a boy. Well, except ONE thing- a lady at church game me a little boy outfit..she said she thought it was cute :-)

I am glad I'm not the only one waiting! Last time I hardly bought anything. Almost everything was given to us or handed down. Towards the end of my pregnancy I went out and bought a couple small things like nail clippers, first aid stuff, and diaper pail cause that was all I was missing. Of course I don't spend a lot of money on stuff so I didn't worry about things like room decor. This time I might buy a little bit more just for fun, but it's not really necessary! I still feel like it is too early for me to do much yet. Plus we are building a new house next summer so there will be a ALOT going on and less stuff will be better!

I don't have a clue of what I need. We are moving these days and it's a complete mess. Hopefully I'll now when I start going through the boxes.

We have plenty of baby stuff. My youngest is still in his crib so we need to transition him to a toddler bed to free up the crib. Otherwise, we don't NEED anything but diapers. However, if this baby is a girl, you better believe I'd buy her some cute clothing! If it's a boy, we are all set because I saved everything from my first two.
