congratulations

It's great to get a few books, join a moms group, go to classes...
When are you due, do you have help,  and what are you doing to prepare?

Follow your instinct. Your baby will tell you what he/she needs and your quickly be able to decipher the cries. I was 19 and i figured it out :)

You still have a lot of time to get ready. Do you have any specific questions?

I have a million questions. Is it normal for me to be tired all the time? And I'm kinda in a hard money time so it be nice to get a discount does anyone know any good places? And I'm was very under weight before my pregnancy and aren't gaining much wait and am not sure what to do about that.

Eat healthy balanced meals. They weight should still come. For baby items like cloths try resale shops and garage sales. Baby stuff doesn't get worn too long so most of its new. The essentials are clothes diapers food and a place for baby to sleep. You can breast feed which is free. Cloth diaper which costs more upfront but can save you thousands in the long run.

I found I didn't need or use my changing table highchair (at least not till you introduce solids around six months or later) bouncer

I loved swaddle blankets and the pajamas that were like a pillow case around the feet instead of pant legs. Made midnight diaper changes a breeze.

You NEED an infant car seat to bring baby home from hospital.

With this baby all I will get is a crib a swing clothes cloth diapers and a set of bottles. (I didn't produce so I'm not counting on it this time) a wrap to wear baby, a double stroller and a carseat. Anything else can wait or ill buy when I need it.

For tiredness or nausea you can take b6 vitamin. That normal. Thrift store and yard sales have awesome deals. Craigslist. Depending where you live:)
