    I'm due in 5 weeks.

    We're supposed to be moving house before then, but we don't have a date yet.

    Because of the supposed move I haven't bought anything for the baby yet.

    All we have is a couple of hand me down newborn vests and some knitted squares that might be a blanket one day.

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The last thing I want is to stress you....Chill. However, I'd move and get the necessities in as soon as possible-inevitably you could have bubba anytime now. :wink:

    I'd just make sure you have stuff like:

    1 pack nappies
    1 pack wipes
    6 sleepsuits
    6 vests
    hat
    blanket

    I would say those are the essentials if you're planning on breastfeeding. Don't panic, everything else you or hubby can pick up after the baby has arrived. If it comes early you'll just have to send him out for a crib if you don't have one yet!

    I would also add a car seat, because you can't take baby home without one!

    otherwise, i'd agree with everyone else, the rest can come once baby is there.

    good luck :)

    I'm the same as you, my baby is due on Sunday but as you are probably aware they go over due aswell, i have a house waiting for me to move into (i lve at my mum's at the mo) and they said it will be by the end of Jan but can't give me a definate date :(

    I have the advantage of having all of Amy's baby stuff, which is washed and in black bags waiting, i haven't out my pram up and i haven't bought a cot yet or got a nursery set up and it will be alot of work to sort out if this baby comes alomst the same date.

    It's so awkward

    Thanks guys. I think I will go ahead and get a few more things - just the essentials as suggested - in case she does decide to show up early. I'm really really hoping we can move first, but also sort of worry that the stress of moving might increase the chances of her arriving on time or early!!

    Twin buggies are apparently only suitable for up to 3 year olds and Amy is ok with her walking so we are not buying her one as it is alot of extra money for the sake of 12 months.

    It definately would be worth it for you to buy one. :D :D

    I would recommend it yeah cos she will still be needing sleeps etc won't she.

    I was thinking of a buggy board, but they are £40, she'll be going through that stage of wanting to walk everywhere as well soon.

    I don't know what to do
