my pregnancy brain is kicking in! :( Help!

I made a post earlier about realizing that if my due date IS wrong, I'll be having a baby in the next few weeks! And now I feel SO unprepared!!! help!!!

So I'm a list person... Here are the things I have left over from my daughter, and things I've gotten so far:

Crib and crib bedding, cradle swing, wipes warmer, travel system w/ the car seat/stroller, pack n play with bassinet n mobile, clothes, socks, bibs, etc., bouncey seat, baby monitor, infant bath tub, portable swing, infant carrier (fwd n bkwd facing)

And things I still need: crib mattress (the one i had is in my daughter toddler bed now!) diapers, wipes, new bottles/nipples, liners (I use the drop ins), formula, snow suit, diaper bag

I feel like I'm forgetting something very important! Help!!!

I'm a 24 year old, *single* mom, to a 13 month old princess, and a prince on the way. I'm 33 or 36 weeks pregnant, I've had previa, abruption, gall bladder surgery, kidney stones, preterm labor and have been passing out, but this little boy is worth it all. I've been through postpartum depression, domestic violence, my parents divorce, losing my job & becoming poor, losing my car, and my license, and becoming a single mom... all in the last year and I'm still glad to be here!!


I *LOVE* my kids more than anything else on this planet!

i notice you did mention infant bath but do you have facecloths infant shampoos and of course you mentioned formula but do you have a supply of burp blankets and swaddle blankets.  oh yeah and i should remind you of your hospital bags since i was just thinking the other day myself i should start mine because i am due the end of march but jan5th they found amniotic fluid was on the low side.

I don't swaddle my babies, and I have the shampoo and baby wash and  wash cloths and burp cloths, etc. Sure, most of it is pink/girly stuff but whatever no one will know if he uses a pink wash cloth LOL

I love a boppy pillow, and a camera/camcorder, mittens...I have pregnancy brian as well, sorry! This is all I can think of at the moment, you seem to have yourself pretty much covered.

Things have been super tough on me financially after I lost my job, so as much as I want a boppy pillow, I might have to wait on that one unless I can find one cheap on craigslist or at the consignment place or on freecycle. And I have a camera and mittens (again who cares if they're pink lol) no I have some boy ones, and neutral ones... although my daughter figured out how to get them off on like day 2 or something.

Bottle brushes!!! How could I forget that?

I'm thinking I will get enough of those pads in the hospital, if i need them after I get out I'll get some tho.

I had the HARDEST time breast feeding last time, and it was so hard on me, put so much stress on me... I think its better for us both if I don't bf this time. i feel kind of guilty about it, but I hated it, and I think it brought on a lot of the ppd I had.

They have pillows like the boppy at walmart that are cheaper. Some off the wall brand...but just as nice! :)
