Okay I'm 34 weeks and due next month (February 19th.) I haven't really bought anything baby related yet. I'm getting nervous because I see a lot of other girls due near me who have almost everything ready. I'm planning to go shopping for everything maybe late January/early February.
Has anyone else waited this long? I'm nervous that I won't get everything in time!

Yeah, I didn't start buying anything real until I was about 36 weeks. I was nervous of experiencing a loss, and also I'm just a last-minute type of person.
Just remember, you don't really need all that much when baby's first born anyway. So don't stress yourself out over not having a certain item. All your baby wants is your b**bs, your arms, and your love.

We just put up the crib but I went nuts and got rid of a bunch of stuff that we need to re buy and we haven't even gotten started yet. I need a pump, bottles, baby monitor, stroller, I have to put the carseat together. I feel so behind!

Yeh all you really need is a place for the newborn to sleep, diapers, and if your not breastfeeding, bottles.
