Ok so so far I've scratched one thing off of my list, bought my stretchy wrap. I'm sure the rest will get done in only a few weeks, once the craziness of my sister going home slows down.

Re: Pre Baby preparation list

Wow! I need to get on the ball! This is our first so we dont have much of anything. We are also moving in a month (totally last minute decision) and nothing is packed. I also feel at a standstill cause baby hasnt been very cooperative at our last two ultrasounds so we have no clue whether we are having a boy or girl . I have been on bed rest too and the only good thing is frequent ultrasounds so baby has one more chance next week! So, my list is...
pack up the house
Buy a crib
Install the car seat (luckily we already have this)
pack hospital bag
finish buying diapers
buy baby clothes
wash all the baby clothes we dont have yet
Set up the nursery in the new place
attend birthing classes & tour hospital
And probably a million other things i just cant think of now. I know it will all get done
but i am seriously frusterated
t i am very frustrated in the process

I crossed off one major item off my long list. Finally got a book case we so badly needed. Dh still needs to set it up and unpack so I Can move in the books and random crap in it. Then wash/prepare the closet in use now for baby clothes. I think it's still a lot of work ahead But at least we got started somewhere..

One thing is done, DH set up the futon in the nursery (I like to sit/lay on it in the middle of the night for feedings) we still need to take out the rest of the toys and such though. A lot of the stuff that has to be purchased will happen after DH gets his taxes back so a lot of stuff will be crossed off at once!

Still can't decide if I should add a nursery rocker / glider as a nursing chair. Another expense But I really felt it as a necessity last time. Who here had one in the past? I'd appreciate some input... Thanks

I loved having a glider - it was just so relaxing to sit and nurse and have that movement. But if we hadn't loaned ours to my brother (so I can get it back!), I wouldn't be getting one this time. I can nurse anywhere, ya know.

Ya truthful I Can nurse anywhere But that means at the kitchen table. During the day if I ever use my bedroom or leave my door open my older ones take the bed apart, iykwim lol. Dunno... Should wants me to have one But the thought of $$ AND the thought of another thing to add to my long list is annoying!
