Not feeling ready enough

"13" weeks left until my buzzer goes off. And I feel like I cannot get ready fast enough. I am trying to take it as slow as I can but my anxiety is popping up because not everything is ready.

I came VERY close to rearranging my room today to put the crib in its place. I am going tomorrow to get 5 crib sheets off of CL (for $15!). I have an Amazon order on its way to me with 2 changing pad covers, a set of bed risers (to have the crib be the same height as our bed), a new aqua pail liner and some deodorizer disks for the diaper pail. I am trying to get DD to stop wearing diapers but I just don't see it happening. I don't want to have to wash her diapers and Squishy's but I might have to.

I still cannot find the 5 drawer plastic dresser I want to get for Squishy. That is causing me the most stress. I had one for DD that I liked so much and worked so well but DS took it when DD was done with it and broke some of the drawers. Now I can't find another one or even a suitable replacement. (Though I think I just found it at The Container Store!) http://www.containerstore.com/shop/s...C0&Ntt=drawers

I hate not having everything ready and set up already. I tried so hard to delay getting things ready before I even hit 20 weeks. Once I passed that, I have gone slow to make sure I don't scare DH too much by having everything ready already.

My thinking as to why I am stressing about this and nesting before I should is because this has been a wanted baby for over 3 years, the fear that I will be in too much pain to set everything up, and the fact that I am having "regular" contractions. I want everything ready and I am fighting it being too early to do so and my need to have everything organized.

Anyone else in the "nesting" mode too?

Feed your children human milk as long as possible, it might save their life. It did my son's.
