I couldn't have lived with out my baby bjorn, my DS had colic for the first 6 months and I would put him in there and get my chores done (laundry, dishes, etc.) plus DH loved using it whenever we were out. : )
Another must have for me is/was my peg perego travel system stroller. The handle flips from side to side so it can be forward or rear facing. It's light, has a great size basket to hold tons of things and it's very very well made, we travelled to Europe at least once a year and it held up just fine where other strollers would break. If you get a stroller with 4 small/thin wheels it will be easier to maneuver around. My sister got a three-wheeled one and it was almost impossible to steer (the front wheel usualy doesn't swivel on those.) Also, try finding a couple of "mommy hooks" they're hooks you attach to your stroller handle to hold your purse/baby bag/shopping/etc.
Also, get a fan in the room the baby sleeps in, to circulate the air and even though it's going to be winter (for most of us) when our babies are born, make sure the temperature is nice and cool for them.
