Ugh, it's going by way too fast, I wish it would slow down!!!!!!

I just want to buy cloth diapers and some California Baby stuff, so I hope I get some of that from my shower off my registry. I also want to get a new car seat and a carrier.

I think my to do list is bigger than my to buy list lol. I cant believe how fast this pregnancy is going. Ill be 24 weeks on friday, feel like I just poas and got that positive.
I went through all the clothes from my son and we have SO much. Not so much light weight for when he is first born but my sister is giving me some from her son. Once we are in the colder weather we are set.
Also need:
-tommee tippee bottles and binkies
-medela calma bottles
-breast pads
-pack n play and sheets
-crib sheets
-swaddle blankets
I know Im missing something but thats pretty much the important things

first time mommas, don't feel bad, the only reason a lot of us are mostly done is because we still had our nurseries set up/stuff from our previous babies. Otherwise if this were a first time deal for me good night I would have nothing We have been doing a lot of cleaning and organizing (by we I mean me) very little buying.

To buy:
Crib mattress (buying in a few weeks even though we don't need it for the first few months)

To get done:
Shelves hung
Name wall decal hung
pick up swing from friend

To pick up (when finished):
Refinished dresser from my brother
Bassinet (made by my step dad)

Otherwise nothing to buy, there are little things on my shower list but nothing that is a must have.
Oh and my MIL gave us some $ towards the BOB stroller we want and then a few of my friends said they would chip in for the rest (baby shower gift), so excited!!!

Getting very excited to meet Matteo!!!

I think right now we have everything we need, we have some stuff I would like to get still but I also haven't had my baby shower yet. We have all of the big things though! Oh except we still need to paint but I think we decided for nesting purposes we are waiting until July so I don't drive myself to crazy the last month! LOL

Only reason I'm done is because I skip a lot of things. No crib, no mattress, no changing table, no swing.

This is our first. I think we are doing pretty good so far. We have the crib, changer, some diapers, wipes, baby clothes (nb to 1 year already), bedding, room painted, decorations placed, bibs, blankets, paci's, bath towels, bath robes. More clothes, a baby bouncer seat. Burp cloths (embroidered by my mom), and some stuffed animals/security blankies. And a rattle.

Still on the needs list are stroller, pack and play, car seat, bottles, and a glider (my husbands only request). Possibly 2 showers to come, so not stressing out too much. Family has been amazing so far.

Dh and I are wanting to buy a matress to put in our guest room and a small tv to put in baby's room (mostly for us during feedings/late nights). And a small bookshelf for her room, and i think we will be set. 101 days left.

I haven't hit the third tri yet. Still, we have nothing done. We bought the crib and mattress, but haven't set it up. We have some diapers, blanket and clothes and that's it!

I am waiting for after my baby showers to go out and have a spending spree! That won't happen until end of July!

BF and I have everything we NEED! There are a few things I still want to get like a diaper bag, portable changing pad system and hangers lol

I can't believe how quickly we got everything! Our families really helped us out! This is our first. They bought all the big items like the nursery set, stroller, carseat, pack n play... yayyyyy!
