I am freaking out about....WHERE I will even be to have this baby!!! We don't even know what city we'll be living in! I am 34 weeks (almost) so at least I'm at the end of the month, but knowing we're probably still moving and I'll probably still have to find a new doc/midwife between now and then is starting to get to me
Kleine, I hear you about the homeschooling - I would normally take some time off from schoolwork when the baby is born, but we've already lost so much time with all the moving, we're quite behind already. Anyway, at least you can nurse or wear a sleeping newborn in a sling while hsing - right now my toddler is the big challenge while I'm trying to get the girls' schoolwork done, so I am hoping no one will be worse than he is - LOL.
As far as nursing "stuff" - I always suggest that less is more - there's virtually nothing you *need* unless you end up with special circumstances. And if you unfortunately do, you can always send DH or grandma or whomever out to buy a pump, Lansinoh, Soothies, etc. One of the best things about nursing is that it's free! The only things I consider essential are nursing bras (I'm pretty big on top so I'm picky about bras - I need a lot of support!) and nursing pads (I used disposables because I leak a TON). Nursing dresses are nice if you like to wear dresses, since it really is hard to nurse in a regular dress without getting half-naked
but I don't usually bother with nursing tops (unless I happen to love the top anyway) because you can pretty much nurse in any kind of regular top.
