I have been like a crazy person buying tons of things so i don't have to worry about it for a few months.. I feel like i need more toilet paper, paper towels etc. I even stocked up on hair products, cleaning products, deoderant, and contact lenses...Anyone stocking up on stuff like i am ? i didn't do this with first pregnancy but i know i won't be running out with baby (though i can order stuff online). DH asked me to not to leave him alone with baby until he is used to taking care of her. lol

Nope, not me ;) Wasn't like this w/ Tristen either. I do weekly shopping, and plan to still do it once the baby comes. Though I do wish we had the money that I could stock-up on some items (ie. meats that can be kept in freezer) but I can't spend that much money at once...we already spend a small fortune weekly.

I won't have any freezer meals (we don't make any casseroles or anything like that -with my food allergies and DH doesn't like vegetables and DD15 is picky with food too). .We make simple things. Dh will do that hopefully.

What a relief to know that your parents will be able to help with the kids.

I usually have a small stockpile of tolietries and favorite foods all the time - a couple toothpastes, shampoo, deodorants, diapers, wipes, toilet paper, paper towels, granola bars, cereal, etc. I do need to restock some of the items (toilet paper, paper towels, some snacks) that are starting to run low. I would love to have all of our favorites already in the house because I know if I ask DH to pick something up that we are out of, there is no telling what he will come home with.
