who isn't doing baby's laundry bc I have MAYBE 2 outfits?
And I certainly don't have a dresser or closet to put it in?
I dunno, I have like 11 weeks...am I crazy?
I figure I will get a lot of clothes at my shower, right?

I don't think you are crazy. You will get tons of clothes at your shower if it anything like mine was. not to mention I'm sure you will have time to pick up anything else you additionally need after the shower.
we don't have a washer/dryer (typical for where I live) so washing things is a huge PITA!
I will when they come but I feel like, do I really need to have this done now?
I just want to get through the work day!
I am holding off on laundry until after my shower with the same thought... and we don't have furniture yet. I am becoming anxious.
I do have more than 2 outfits though... had a bit of a shopping frenzy with zulily. :)
You definitely aren't alone! My shower isn't until the middle of September so all we have is a crib and dresser... No bedding, no stroller, no carseat, pretty much no nothing lol. The crib is really the only thing that we have in our house that's baby related at all. I am anxious to have everything done but there is no point until after the shower. So I'm trying my hardest to wait patiently :-)
I only have clothes because we had our shower so early. I don't have a dresser or closet, either, so I feel you on that. I figure it will get done...I sort of want to wait and just do a few outfits beforehand, in case stuff doesn't fit. Or she turns out to be a boy!
I would say yes, you will get clothes. That was ALL I got.
I literally just started buying girl stuff 2 days ago and I'm definitely not washing it just in case I have to return it. (we were first told boy at our 20 week u/s, then girl at 24 weeks).
I might start washing things after our next appt in a couple weeks. I have yet to go through DS's old stuff to find and wash what is gender neutral.
To be honest though I doubt I would have done much more by now if I actually had more of a handle on things though. I don't think I did that kind of thing till mmm 34 weeks, maybe later with DS.
I didn't do baby girl's laundry yet and she doesn't have a closet or dresser. We're moving hopefully by next week so I'm waiting to do laundry for her until we're there and there is a place to put it. As to clothes at the baby shower I literally got over forty outfits easy. So I'd wait until your shower and wash it all at once.
You will get plenty of clothes, no worries!
My mom is insane, so I have a lot of outfits, but I haven't washed any of them. I want to get the crib bedding washed (since all I have is a crib), but first I have to buy appropriate detergent, which I keep forgetting to do...
Baby's room is a mess of laundry, her closet is actually all her stuff, but it's a wreck, but there is a crib set up in there.... whole extent of preparation so far. I'm with you--I have 11 weeks, so it will be fine!
We just did a load of baby laundry this week. The only reason we had anything to wash, though, was because we just had a shower a couple of weeks ago. Before that, we were in the same boat as you. Our dresser isn't supposed to come in for another month, so we just folded everything and put it in a laundry basket for now.
Yes, you will get clothes at your shower. Lots and lots of clothes. Don't worry, you'll be doing baby laundry soon enough
I have washed the left over's from DS#1 and any other hand me downs that have came into the house. (I'm weird about bugs) Otherwise, my nursery is painted but no crib is set up, not a dresser and all our clothes are folded in totes in the closet. Both my kids start school in 2 weeks so I will be alone in the mornings until baby comes. I am hoping to get things done while DD is in school in the morning.
I can't believe how many people recieved so many clothes for thier showers. I did not. (with DS#1) We received only a few outfits.
I'm in exactly this boat. My first shower was last weekend and I got my first clothes then. But I only got 1 newborn outfit and 1 0-3 month outfit. Everything else was bigger.
I'm going to hit some consignment shops this weekend for some onesies, and then my second shower is in a week and a half. I figure after that point I can start thinking about washing clothes.
No you're not the only one! I had my shower 2 weeks ago and believe it or not, I got more gear than I did clothes. So I'm just buying things little by little and keeping them stored in a bag in the nursery closet. Around mid September I'll start washing them. Right now, I'm just trying to survive the day! LOL
