I hear you on the money issues--we've ended up spending a lot of money on birth expenses, some baby items, home maintenance/repair, plus some unexpected and costly veterinary care for my dog. We're feeling pretty broke!
Haven't spent too much on diapers this time though, but I did get a couple dozen preemie prefolds for this baby--DD was about 6 1/2 lbs and gained slowly, so the newborn size prefolds dwarfed her for the first month or two! I figure that the preemie size will fit the baby for the first few weeks folded in 3rds and laid in a cover, and then afterwards will be really good as doublers or pocket diaper inserts. I got a couple more NB size/small covers and one nb size pocket diaper I think for this baby, too. And I knit two pairs of nb size longies, and will hopefully be able to knock out at least one soaker or so before baby comes. Now that I'm all prepared for another little baby, watch me end up having a 10 lber!
I've had a bit of a rough time the past few days, not sleeping/resting well and feeling sort of discombobulated and zonked out. Ended up having a bunch of contractions last night for a couple of hours, which happily eventually fizzled out, since I'm a couple of days short of 36 weeks and really the midwife wants me to get to 37 weeks for a homebirth, which I agree with. But I really, really, REALLY don't want to go to the hospital--so I want this kid to stay in for another week at least! I'm just not quite ready, at any rate, pragmatically or emotionally. Although I must admit that I'm getting to the point where not being pregnant is starting to look pretty good at least some of the time and I'm getting a bit more curious and impatient to see this baby, find out whether it's a girl or boy, see what it looks like, etc. Hard to believe that I'm getting so close, though!
