Nothing yet. I still don't feel like I'm out of the woods.

I have a couple packs of Newborn diapers, a pack of size 1. I have one really cute rock and roll shirt. It's red with a plaid overshirt. That's it so far.

Not yet! After my next appointment I'm going to start shopping for some of the gn gear we need to replace, maybe nursing tanks. I'm so dying to buy clothes, burp clothes, blankets, etc but will wait until we know the gender.

There was a resale today in the part of town that we went to for another activity, and I considered going but decided not to. We don't need much. I'd like to get a new swing, one of the kind that are shorter and fold up. We have the big traditional kind, and I already have a new home for it. We don't have space for it in the house we are currently in! This is the first time that I'm not going ape crazy over baby stuff right away, though. It just seems that this time we have a basement full of stuff, some of it we never used for the first two LOL

I'm still too nervous to buy anything. :/ Maybe in a couple of months? That doesn't stop me from looking in the baby section though every time I go out. Aside from feeling movement, buying all of the cute baby stuff is my favorite part of this.

Yeah, i bought a whole bunch a baby girl clothes so I could somehow force the universe to give me a girl. I did save the receipt just in case. I also bought bananas on the same shopping trip. Then my pregnant brain left the bananas and baby clothes in the same bag in the trunk of the car until I was like, "hey, what's that smell?" Bananas rotted into cotton. I couldn't salvage them. I guess the universe was like, "see what happens when you try to push me around"

I have picked up some sleepers & cute little bits & pieces second hand, Also picked up a swing that I would have bought anyways, (second hand for $10!!) But in reality this time I don't really need anything apart from newborn cloth nappies!

I haven't bought anything except the ducky sleeper I gave DH with the pregnancy test.
I will be going to the fabric store one of these days and will be making some swaddle wraps. Once we know the gender...I will then be sewing up a storm! I have fabric for cloth diapers coming someone this week.
May go to Buy Buy Baby on Friday with my mom to check out the co-sleeper--won't buy it, just looking.

I haven't bought anything for the baby yet, all I made was a crochet pumpkin hat and plan on crafting and sewing a lot for the baby but I'm kind of holding off from crafting and buying till we know the gender. However, I told DH to keep his eyes open for garage sells/Craigslist to be on the look out for a swing, changing table, high chair and other baby items we might need.

I have been picking up small things at second hand stores from about 6 weeks on. I feel like I shouldn't until I know for sure that all is well, but I figure if not, we will be trying again. Just last week I found a Hanna Andersson pink bunny sleep gown. I will put it on a boy or a girl, as it is just going to be used at night and sleep gowns make middle of the night diaper changes super easy.

The only new things that will be bought for this one will be a new stroller and possibly a co-sleeper. I will be stalking the thrift stores like mad once we hear the heartbeat though!

No, I want to know the sex first. I have been stalking Babies-r-us online though. I saw the cutest Whale Tub, now I can't wait to give my LO a bath!

I bought this a few days ago. Couldn't help myself. I'm saving the receipt though, JIC it's a boy.
