All these posts about shopping, gender, names, baby room prep ..... Gosh I have not done anything. Am I strange? I just can't seem to bring myself to that next stage. Not sure if its because I am still scared from past losses or if I am procrastinating or just can't imagine a baby yet. Not sure but I keep putting stuff off. Guess there is still a lot of time. But we really have nothing and I probably should at least research ideas so I know what's out there. Things seem to have changed since my son.

Sorry long ramble it's been a hormonal day. I cried twice over pretty regular things. Feeling so sensitive.

Or maybe it's cause I am still so darn tired? I don't know. Lol

Haven't bought even one thing yet either! Until the anatomy scan I don't like to do much. A friend brought over a practically new rocker/ottoman for me today and it's sitting in the living room. Weird to look at it and realize that it is for the new baby!

It won't be long and baby will start moving, I will have a scan and then start buying stuff. I don't think it has really sunk in yet!

I haven't even started looking. I did start researching infant seats the other night but that's it. We won't be buying things until it gets closer.

You've got plenty of time! Don't worry about it yet if you're not ready to do all of that. I've mostly just started researching a few things, and that's just on days I'm at home and bored.

I haven't done anything either. I look online sometimes of new baby products but haven't bought anything. I have so much stuff i saved from Tyler and alyssa so i don't have to but to much. We haven't figured out where we are putting the crib yet. I wouldn't say we are behind but we should start organizing done stuff soon to see what we do need. My other two were winter babies so I'm thinking ill need some cooler clothing.

There's still a lot of time! I don't think I had much of anything done when I was this far along with DS. As a military family we have just learned to do things ASAP here simply because we can and may not be able to in the future when the time comes. Luckily it doesn't look like DH is leaving any time soon but he was gone for most of the pregnancy with DS and after DS was born with like 1 week notice. So nothing got done ever, that's why I'm jumping the gun this time

You have loads of time We have just bought diapers and wipes - those are always great things to stock up on. We have a rule that when we go grocery shopping, we buy a pack of wipes. It quickly adds up, so that could be one thing to focus on as its generic and universal.

As far as anything else goes, we haven't done anything. I have been so darn tired to be honest that I have had no desire to go shopping. Now I'm starting to get more interested in looking at nursery furniture etc. We will do our registry once we find out the gender, but will probably not buy anything big until then.

I won't do much of anything until we find out gender. Even then, I don't think I will buy too much until after our baby showers.
