As everyone else has said, you wont know until bubba is here. And the estimate size they give you at the ultrasound is usually inaccurate. Just buy a couple of things in each size. You will probably get a few basic clothing items at your baby shower too.
I don't know about over there, but here the sizes vary between brands anyway! I had a size 0000 (premie) sleep gown which my daughter wore for about a month, but she also fit a size (newborn) gown in a different brand for the same time span. So to be honest its best to buy all the cute stuff once the baby is here. (although what new mum wants to go shopping when you are sleep deprived and have a tiny one to look after at home!) Maybe just keep tags on things until you can measure them up against bubba.

Nappies... same applies! They certainly don't fit newborn nappies for very long. Well my DD didn't anyway so don't go buying bulk.
