I am so frustrated, I really don't have anything for the baby, I am due in 9weeks. My niece threw me a baby shower and no one really showed up so that means very and i mean very few presents. I know this is my 3 child but seriously its been 7yrs and my last babies were girls and this one is a boy. I really am getting stressed and i don't know what to do. Sorry just needed to vent.

Sorry, but you're 30. A baby shower shouldn't be the sole preparation for your new baby. Especially if it's not your first.

Yea its frustrating but you cant fall back on people for something you did. Im 23and although this is my 3rd baby, its also my first boy. I had nothing but a bassinet and crib for this baby. I donated all of my other stuff thing if i had another kid, it would be years away. No one is helping us out at all. My husband is working 12hour shifts to try and get us caught up on bills so we can take care of this baby. We wont be recieving any assistance. The only thing thats going on is my 4yr old wants him to have a birthday party and we are inviting my parents and his and none of them have money for anything really. They will be getting him something small. It sucks when you dont have people to give you all this free shit you need but thats why i have hit up the yard sales and thrift stores. Good luck.

There are things you can do to cut costs....cloth diaper/ breastfeed/ cosleep......check out church donations...thrift stores...consignment stores for clothes/ toys....my mom got everything for my son from garage sale....he is overloaded with stuff
