This is our third, and honestly, I feel pretty badly, but I don't have any real desire to buy any new stuff. I bought a special blanket that I loved the print and feel. I'm knitting a new blanket for babe, and other than that, this little one is going to be living in the hand me downs of her/his brother and sister's stuff. Of course, when baby is born, we'll likely get some special things just for her/him, but right now, other than some knitted things, I'm not getting baby anything. I did buy her/him a special toy in Paris (I found out I was pregnant the day we left to go over there), so that was it, but it's really small.
Our preparation right now consists of transitioning DD to her "big girl room". I found the most amazing deal on craigslist, two antique jenny lind twin beds. I bought them both and for under $100 for both together!!!!!! I'm refinishing them to match the decor, and then we'll have the spare twin for either this baby to share a room with DD, or for DD and DS to share a room together. That is our big transition so far. Maybe I'll feel more inspired once baby comes.
This might sound weird, but DH is really adamant about not finding out the sex of this baby, and I think that sort makes me less motivated to prepare...I can't wrap my mind around WHO this baby is, whereas with DS and DD, I was preparing for DS and for DD. I don't care who is coming, in terms of the sex, either would be so precious, but I feel pretty awful about this weird apathy, but while I'm thrilled to be pregnant, love feeling baby move, and so excited for baby to come, realize how lucky I am to be pregnant, truly, it's just such a mystery as to WHO is in there...I'm having a harder time really bonding the way I did with my first two. I hope that doesn't make me sound awful. I'll stop now.
