First off, congrats and welcome!
I started pretty early with the little stuff (diapers, wipes, burp cloths, etc.) and started to stockpile...especially when things were on sale and/or I had coupons. For the bigger stuff I wanted to wait until later and until after we had the anatomy scan, but that sort of backfired on me. I was put on modified bedrest at 17 weeks and complete bedrest at 25 weeks, so most of my shopping was done from a laptop on the couch
Most twin Mamas will tell you that it is better to do it sooner...after 25-ish weeks you will really slow down and it is exhausting just doing regular stuff, much less putting together furniture, painting, shopping, etc. For me it was easier to relax and be calm knowing that I had everything I *needed* when the babies arrived.
