We've moved recently, but we're unpacked. I just didn't want to pull all the baby stuff out and stare at it for the next 12 weeks. I think if I were still working I would be getting it ready because I'd have less time. But now that I'm staying home I'm trying to reserve all that activity to GIVE me something to do.
Anybody else still waiting to get things ready?

Maybe I will be nesting soon and I can do everything in like 2 days.

I finally got a few little sleepers/ clothes and dug out my infant carseat that needs a clean. I still need to get a dresser for the new LOs clothes as there is just not enough room in the one we just got for DD and DS when our old huge one fell apart.

I can see you are are a couple weeks behind me. I hadn't done or bought almost anything until I hit week 30, and I am a first time mom
I have a Moby wrap. That's it. I'm about to kick it into high gear though, as I finally moved. I haven't unpacked a thing, mind you, but I've moved. The next month is all about baby, although my mom is encouraging me not to buy anything until after my shower on the 26th. We'll see.

I survived 16 mos! Ask me about breastfeeding a baby with posterior tongue tie, high palate, and weak oral motor skills- whew!
That said, as of right now, it'll be sleeping in a laundry basket...but at least it will be well dressed while doing it.
We've also recently moved, only been in our new house about 3 weeks and so I've done nothing for the new baby. Because it's my third I have everything but it's all in a pile in the middle of her room. I keep thinking there's lots of time yet, right? I'm also having my first homebirth and I've nothing to prepare for that. With everything else going on I've basically forgotten I'm even having this baby.

This is baby #3 for us, and ds1 started his first week of school this week, and has his birthday on Sunday. After we're through all that, maybe I'll have room in my head and schedule to think about baby stuff.
Oh, we ordered a few more OS pocket diapers, but that was mostly because ds2 decided he's not interested in the potty after all, but refuses to keep anything with velcro on. I could pretend it was for the baby, though . . .
With dd #1, I was so on top of things...she had this dreamy nursery, precious clothes, diapers ready and waiting, freshly painted walls, coordinating decorations, hand-knitted sweaters. This baby? I am vaguely aware that I will be having another baby soon, but nothing really registers right now! I guess I'll do something constructive this weekend. Or not.
