We are pretty much ready for baby. We still need to put the crib up and wash some baby clothes. I borrowed a lot of clothes from friends. I plan to breastfeed so that is taken care of. I do have a couple boxes of diapers but decided not to stockpile after reading all of your comments.
We have a swing and vibrating bouncer. The only other item I need to check is our infant car seat to see if its expired. I don't buy into the notion that babies need a ton of stuff. They need somewhere to sleep, something to eat, diapers and preferably a swing. We used the swing a lot when Lil Punk was a baby.
I also need to get my baby monitor back from a friend I lent it to. I think she is still using it and her kid is 2 1/2. She knows I need it back so hopefully.
I'm due in 2.5 weeks so I'm getting very uncomfortable. I expect to go to my due date but we shall see. As of last week, I've gained 46 pounds so I'm sure I will hit the 50 pound mark. I'm hoping this baby is under 10 pounds as Lil Punk was over 9 pounds. I want to be back in my jeans by 6 weeks out. Lofty goal.
