...frustrated with the limited selection of Gender Neutral clothes?

I am dying to shop and it seems like no matter what store I go to, I'm lucky if I can find anything at all except for plain white onesies or a duckie jumper. And that's it. lol

I'm happy that I only have one more month, and at least there are TONS of gender neutral blankets and things to shop for, but I'm just so ready to stock that closet!! I have 30+ pieces of clothing, but they are sized 0-9 months. Mostly 3-6 and hardly and 0-3. I haven't had this big of an urge to shop since... ever!!

I just know that I am going to hit every single store on the way home from my gender scan! lol

And for the ladies who aren't finding out - bless you!!

I never bought anything until I found out the gender. I never really liked the gender nuetral stuff for myself. Like you said it's usually plain onesies or yellow ducks or something.

I have had both boy and girls in cooler months so I wasn't overly anxious this time around. With my first though I was going insane. Hang in there, you will find out soon.

I haven't really looked much because I'm waiting to find out the gender. When I had my m/c, my mom bought a cute ducky outfit and a bib that are gender neutral. I prefer to buy for a girl or a boy, although I really like boy's clothes better. I'm not into really girly stuff. If I can get around buying any pink for a girl, I will!

Yes!

It really sucks. I don't want to get everything pink or blue, but the neutral stuff is really hard to find. It often costs more too Even if I do find neutral stuff it's nearly always yellow or white... What happened to green, brown, red, tan... so on...

YES! I have been so anxious to buy stuff but I find the same problem everywhere I go, only a couple of things gender neutral and usually it is something with ducks on it. Ducks are cute, but not as cute as the other gender specific stuff has on it. So far the only things I have bought is a yellow bib that says "I love my big sister", a little mini sock monkey that has an Oregon ducks sweatshirt on it (I am from Oregon originally), and today I bought some cute little frog booties. I can't wait to find out the gender so I can start buying stuff!

Yeah, I'm not a fan of the pink pink pink, either. I like the browns, yellows, and greens, oranges, reds... anything but pink and blue. It always either has trucks of flowers on it! haha. I guess in a months it won't matter.

I'll probably still be skeptical if my scan says girl. I don't want to be one of those mommies who buys a trillion dollars with of pink stuff, only to have her little man come out with his hidden winkie. It happens... it think? lol. And if it hasn't, I don't want to be the first. lol

I consider it a challenge now I am not a big fan of yellow and ducks so I will scour the stores for grey, red, green, etc. I've gotten lucky at Carters a few times in their clearance section and I found a cute beige sleep set with an elephant and a grey footed sleeper with an elephant print. I'm going to check out H&M soon to see what they have, I've heard they have a really good baby section. My DH likes that I can't really over buy since we don't know and I'm kinda glad too because I tend to make big babies and lots of the tiny clothes don't fit but I have a hard time resisting them because they are so cute

This is a total pet pieve of mine!!! We're not finding out the gender and really don't like pink or blue anyway. I would love it if my kiddo could live in gender neutral clothes all the time, but nobody wants to sell any! Plus, I love hand-me-downs and I think all this gender specific stuff just makes people buy more. I hate that and think its ridiculous!

The thing I find really odd is even when I do find neutral colors they are called boy's or girl's. Aside from having a penis or vagina I fail to see how the two sexes of infant are shaped differently.

I totally gave up on gender neutral last time, it's just not as much fun This time I just don't have the same shopping urge that I thought I would. Since the ultrasound tech was pretty sure it was a girl again, I don't really need to.
