DH and I decided not to find out the gender, so I won't know if I'm team pink or blue until the baby arrives! I am guessing boy though =).

Definitely not completely prepared! I need to get some white onesies for the first days, and a pack of newborn diapers & wipes. I don't want to overprepare clothes & diapers because, well clothes, I do want gender specific stuff once we know the gender, but also I was over 9 lbs and I don't want to end up with a bunch of newborn stuff that doesn't get used!

Also need to get some more inserts for my cloth diapers and prep all that, so they will be ready when baby fits into them. I've got a few other odds and ends that I want to get, but am trying to do with the bare minimum for the first few weeks as my shower will be after the baby arrives. We've got a crib & carseat. The crib is set up in our room as we live in a 1-bedroom place.

Does anyone have any good storage solutions? With our small space that's my biggest concern at the moment. Where am I going to put clothes and everything when I actually get them??

We got a Graco 5 drawer dresser from walmart.com for $150 which is definitely coming in handy. Also we have a few of those plastic 3 drawer storage things

Yeah... unfortunately I don't think we have any more floor space for furniture. DH and I each have a dresser & night stand, and we also share a closet for the rest of our clothes and shoes. We went through and decluttered over Christmas, and got 2 drawers free... then DH promptly filled his up with something else My free drawer is stuffed to the brim with baby stuff. We actually bought a mini crib, not a full sized crib, and I'm glad we went that route as we'd have even less space left otherwise!

I'm due May 17th with our second girl! We are moving over 2,000 miles away on Wednesday so I have nothing done for this baby girl. Our house is a total disaster with boxes everywhere and the movers come tomorrow, ugh!

Ahh IDK then lol we also have one of these for the closet http://www.walmart.com/ip/Delta-24-P...Beige/15161946 which is amazing and will totally come in handy, but if your closet isn't big, I wouldn't suggest it cuz it'll take up most of it lol

Yeah there is no space for something like that in our closet! I'm hoping to get DH to hang up another little rod or something so I can have a place specifically for baby's clothes, but I need space for diapers and stuff too!

Mummy2Corban, I'd been sleeping great until a couple of nights ago! Now I'm inexplicably not able to sleep well, because I'm just not comfortable. I wish I could figure out what is making me uncomfortable!

I am due 21st May! We are team yellow although I am convinced it's a girl, we'll find out in about 10 weeks time!

Only 8 weeks left at work and I CANNOT wait, really had enough now

Nursery isn't ready at all but I am sure we'll get there, or rather I hope we do!

Hugs for all May mummies :-)
