    All we have so far is :

    Pram
    Carseat
    Moses basket & stand
    Steriliser
    Bottles
    Bottle Warmer
    Few Bibs
    Bath Support


    Thats all......... Arghh i just feel so unorganised :nope:

    Absolutely! All we have is a new moses basket matress and all of Grace's stuff. The purchase that is worrying me the most is the double buggy... I'm still considering the Baby Jogger City Select and know I'm going to have to make up my mind pretty sharpish as these things can take ages to arrive and it would be awful to be without any way of transporting a newborn and LO (who incidentally still cannot stand even with support, let alone walk!) aaaggh!

    You've got more than I have! We have a few vests, a couple of bottles and a steriliser. That's literally it!

    I have absolutely nothing. Zilch. Zip. Nada. :(

    Am 19 weeks tomorrow and can't buy anything until mum and dad have moved all their furniture out of our house (they just moved and were redecorating).

    I want to get ON with it!!!

    ive got nothing at all ready for baby. Me and my OH have recently moved into a house together and we have a room for the baby but its currently cluttered with our stuff. A lot of people are saying we should wait until we find out the sex before we buy anything but im itching to start buying things. We are so not prepared!

    Wow you have waaaay more stuff than me!! :dohh:

    We have moses basket/bottles/mobile/quite alot of clothes/tonnes of nappies thanks to Mum!/bibs/monitor and thats about it!!

    We dont have any of the "big" stuff, so OH started freaking out last night (think its because I have started to show now, he wasnt this panicky last week!!)

    So I am setting up a babyplan with Mothercare! Just waiting for the lady to ring me from the shop and set it all up. We have ordered the travel system cotbed and mattress.. so thats the main big things done!

    Dont realise how little time there is left LOL only 3 more paydays til baby comes! :help: time if most definately flying!!! xx

    We have a steriliser and a pack of babygrows.

    I'm not buying anything else until after the next scan on the 23rd June then I'll start looking at cots/prams etc

    Arghh i am going to book a 4d scan i think as i cant quite believe im having a girl , and would be soooo gutted for me to buy lots of pink and give birth to a little boy :blue:

    I know the feeling. I have quite a bit, but it doesn't seem enough. I feel like I'm soooo not prepared at all. We are moving in the next couple months, but we have no clue where. I feel like I should have a nursery all set up by now lol.

    Aww see im sad as i wont get to do a nursery this time round as we only have a 2bedroomed house, but our bedroom has a big groove type part where i am going to place the cot & moses basket etc so i might just make that bit look a little more "babylike" haha , feels strange not planning a nursery this time :(

    Wow I think you have loads!! I have nothing at all and I am 25 weeks tomorrow! I feel like I've had a mental block on buying stuff but I am going to start in the next few weeks. Have ordered some catalogues (babystyles, mamas and papas etc) so I can start looking for prams etc.

    I've done exactly nothing - but I've thought about it loads. No real rush quite yet :lol:

    clothes - got loads of Adam's that we'll use again, some won't be the right size for the season, so I need to go through and check, then wash. some is at my mum's, some in my friend's basement. will be buying new babygros and bodysuits but not much till the new season's stuff is in the shops :D

    pushchair/pram - we have Adam's, and I have two slings (one of which I have to get back from my SIL). sort of planning to buy a second hand P&T, but need to do more research

    moses basket - at my mum's. need to get a new mattress

    cot - Adam is still in it, need to get him a new bed when we move house

    car seat & base - Adam's is in storage at my friend's, going to buy a new cover as I think it might have gone a bit moldy down in her basement. :(

    steriliser & bottles - at my mum's, might buy new bottles, defo buy new teats

    breast pump - need to buy new one, sold my old one

    muslins/bibs/etc - got loads, just need to be washed

    nappies - all Adam's size 1s are at my mum's, need to go through them and decide what more I need

    monitor - got Adam's somewhere in storage

    this poor baby won't be getting much stuff new! will get some clothes and maybe a mobile (Adam's is a bit dusty and not sure if it can be washed as it's fabric)

    Phew, travel system, cotbed and mattress are officially ordered! :wohoo:

    Got them on the Babyplan at Mothercare, came to £400 and odd and paid £40 (10%) deposit, and have until 1 week before delivery (1st Sept) to pay the balance.... getting the pram money off my Mum and the cotbed money off my Dad, so me and OH only need to pay the remaining £45 off for the mattress! (damned thing was only £15 less than the cot!)

    So happy to have sorted them now, OH was really starting to worry about baby coming and having to push him around in a wheelbarrow or something!

    yaay x
