I haven't bought anything. I will probably get a boy and a girl one piece sleeper for coming home from the hospital since we won't know until then. After that I'll just use what I have for whatever sex it is from my son or daughter. I'm excited for a summer baby and minimum clothing in the beginning. My daughter was October and son was March so they both had to be so bundled up to go anywhere.

I'm excited for a warm weather baby too. Dd was born in late November.

Diapers! HA!

Now that we know gender I've gotten most of what we need for newborn clothing, the majority of diapers, and lots of swaddle blankets. Our big ticket items will be purchased after we move. For now I am working on our home birth supply list.

 we will have to move before the baby is born so I haven't bought anything yet..i don't want to pack more than we already have to especially while I'm pregnant so we will wait until we move to buy anything...whole reason we r moving I BC we don't have enough space where we are as it is and I can't stand the clutter we already have from not having anywhere to put things so I don't want to add to my frustration there

Yeah, I hear ya. We haven't purchased anything either yet. We're moving this coming up weekend and since there is no extra space here where we've been staying we've had to wait.
Have you found a new place yet or still looking?

We actually can't even start looking yet because we don't know where his job hunt is going to take us. He may find a job around here but he is also going to be looking for jobs in other towns. I am hoping closer to my family (2 hours away) but we won't know for sure until he gets the job and in the meantime the search is pretty pointless because even if we find a place we would like now, it may not be available anymore at the time we need it and he may not get a job in the area that it is in. Not being able to know for sure and search confidently is really driving me crazy but I am trying not to stress about it. I know we will get things figured out when the time comes :)

We are moving too -- waiting to hear back from our mortgage broker to see if we can buy a house, or if we need to look for another rental.

Everything I have acquired for Garrett is stored in plastic bins (already packed, lol!) in my bedroom, along with all our home birth supplies. It is driving me crazy - we need another dresser and a twin bed for our 1 yr old... :/ Nesting is killing me.

omg nesting lol I already dislike the clutter but i can normally put up with it to a certain point but with the urge to nest it is really driving me insane! There is so little space! we have so many things we use on a daily basis with no specific place to put them when they aren't being used. Things end up getting thrown wherever is convienent at the time which makes for lost items. I cannot wait to have our own place!! I have the urge to clean and organize but then I get so frustrated with not having a place to put things that I just give up. It is such a pointless battle right now :(
