I don't plan to make any large purchases until I am solidly into my second trimester, but a few things I am pining away for are:

Pregnancy belly chime
Boba 3G Baby Carrier in Tweet
Bumbleride lightweight stroller I had a cheapie umbrella stroller with DS and I hated that thing. I bought a McClaren at a yard sale for $5, but it was half broken. It pushed like a dream and had a basket and was much more adjustable than the tiny umbrella. I am determined to have a really good lightweight stroller this time.

Anyone else have a wish list already?

I mostly have to start over.... I've either sold everything or it's expired.

Things I hope to get off Craigslist:
crib
swing
moby wrap and/or ergo
dresser/changing table
eventually a high chair

To buy new:
travel system
soother
diaper bag

I will need a crib, as my youngest will still need to be in his crib when this one is born. I can't remember if our swing is in the shed or we threw it away....still have a baby tub...so I think that's about it.

We have sold everything too, we were dead set that DS was our last baby, but that changed a few years later!

We have painted the nursery and hung some curtains and have a crib, but I think I would at least finish buying the other furniture, and then start on cloth diapers!

I won't be buying anything until I am back in Hawaii, and we have to buy just about everything new because Dd is 5 now. I can't wait to buy my cloth diaper stash though!

I'm just really excited to get started on the nursery. Husband rolled his eyes at me when I told him I wanted to buy everything new and shiny, and I told him to hush because this is our first baby and I want to enjoy it!

- A ring sling or a woven wrap
- A new high chair (ours was used and is gross now)

I want to buy some little baby socks. I'm planning to buy these after my u/s next Friday.

Other than that, I haven't planned to buy anything specific yet. We need to clean out the nursery room first. Even if the baby won't be sleeping there for a while, we need a place to keep this extra stuff we'll be buying.

I'm wanting to start pricing furniture now. SO has stuff that's in good condition in the garage, but it's yellow pine that he and his ex seemed to favor and very much not me. I figure I want to start putting away for those big ticket items now so it's less painful later on.

Thankfully I still have lots of stuff, but I did sell/throw away a few things so I'll need to get a new highchair, carrier/stroller set and play pen. If it's a girl I'm already set for clothes, but if it's a boy I'll have to go baby clothes shopping I'll also have to buy some bottles etc.

I'm very excited to buy some new things hehe, the cute stuff that I've been eyeing for years but couldn't possibly rationalize until now lol

The things I used most that I remember were the swing and the bouncy seat. And the baby sack thing that you wear the baby in.

I was in Old Navy today in the clearance section, and found a really nice maternity top that will be perfect in the fall. It was 4 bucks. Ha! lol I'm very much a planner for months ahead, so I will start and do a teeny bit at a time.

We kept everything from DS so we really won't need much except for some new clothes and I am hoping a new high chair cause I really didn't like his, it's a cheapie.

First purchase will probably just be a onesie

That chime seems pretty sweet... You don't think it'd annoy you after a while? I like long necklaces though.
