So far, the toughest part of being pregnant for me has been holding back from buying tons of stuff. And of course, there are good reasons not to buy stuff right away, I just don't like to listen to those logical reasons. First off, we still have no idea if the baby is a boy or girl. So I know anything I buy will have to be "gender neutral" at this point, which is fine, but then will I still be as in love with these things once I know the sex of the baby? Probably not, since I change my mind so often.
We have bought a crib. I have known for quite awhile I wanted a white crib. Something simple to go with the dresser and changing table we already have (mine as a baby). I saw this one from Ikea about a month ago after realizing how expensive the ones at Target or Babies R Us were. This was a steal. So many people have posted about how sturdy it is and how cheap! So I knew I had to have it.
