So I just had a positive pg test yesterday & I have my dr's appt tomorrow to confirm it. I'm totally in baby-mode right now and I've convinced Dh to let me use some of our tax refund to go on a shopping spree for things we never could afford for our 1st dd. Since I haven't shopped for baby items in 3 years I need some help w/ the latest & greatest stuff. What things are you ladies wanting for your LO's? If possible please post pics or links to the items in stores (walmart, target, babiesrus, etc). 

Things I'm trying to get:

Swing

Bassinet

Stroller/carseat combo

Nursery decor (gender neutral)

My baby is 17 months old and I haven't shopped for baby stuff in 5 years. So I have no idea what to suggest. I just have to say, I so hope the next time I'm pregnant that money won't be an issue. Because buying everything I want for once sounds so nice! Have fun!

I do have a swing suggestion though now that I think about it. The Fisher Price cradle swings are awesome!

My friend had a swing/bouncer combo, loved the idea but the motor was so obnoxiously loud I could barely stand to be in her apt while it was on. I don't know anybody who has one of the fisher price swings yet but they are sooo cute! I wish I could test one out in the stores.

I have this one: http://www.fisher-price.com/en_Us/products/63186

It is amazing, not loud at all and the lights and motion are so soothing. I really wish they made one for adults!

I'll list some of the things we have or ones I would consider:

Bouncer-http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=10802994 (have)

High chair-http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4024388 (have)

Carseat-http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=13320148 (have)

The stroller/carseat combo isn't available anymore.  We still have the same one we used with our first.  The Baby Trend stuff at Babies R Us is very neutral.  Rainforest, jungle animals, frogs, ducks, farm animals, etc are all neutral decor.  It depends on what you like.

We have this stuff:

http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=16401606

We also have Jungle 123 (no longer available, but you can find it on amazon and places like that).  We had Lambs & Ivy papaygo bedding/mobile for our first.  We are re-using that.  We co-sleep/bedshare for a while first though.

Mamaroo is a great swing.  I've also considered this one, but we don't have space right now: 

http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4360510&prodFindSrc=search

I don't use bassinets.  Good luck :)

Thank you ladies for all your input I really appreciate it. As for a stroller I'm looking into getting a sit & stand type:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Graco-RoomFor2-Stand-and-Ride-Stroller-Metropolis/19852876

Which means I'm going to have to go w/ an adaptable car seat, although I really wanted to get a Chicco, but they don't make a sit & stand. :-( I just know if I don't get something that my dd can either sit or stand on if she gets tired of walking someone is going to wind up carrying her, lol.
