So I know it's still early but have you bought anything for you or baby yet?
I bought a little white bunny that has a silky blanket attached to it. I wrapped it up with the test for my husband and that's how I plan to reveal the big news to him. And today I found a pair of maternity capris for 60% off and they were just my size so I had to get them. :-) Since we have absolutely nothing (donated everything from the first two last month...just our luck!) I figured I'll buy a little here and there so I'm not spending a fortune all at once.
Not yet. We won't be buying anything for a while, we don't need much. We are making a list of what we need and setting up our baby budget account this week. We may be waiting till we have like a month left of pregnancy and buy everything then.

Back in February I bought 2 maternity shirts (I was pregnant at the time and thought I'd need them sooner than now!). They were mismarked in price so I got a super cheap deal and decided to keep them. But nothing since finding out this time.

Nothing yet! I had just gotten rid of almost all of my maternity tops a few months ago so I will need a few summer ones and then I will need winter since I have never been pregnant in the winter.
As for baby clothes. 2 days before I got my BFP I have my sister ALL of my girl clothes through 6 months and some baby gear. So, when I tell her I am pregnant (not sure when that will be), I am going to ask her if I have another girl if I can have it when she her baby is done with them. I am hoping for a boy but I know it will be a girl.

I guess I can go ahead and add 27 cloth diapers with inserts to the list. Our Target had them for 50% off and I couldn't pass them up. They are gender neutral and if (GOD FORBID) something happened to the baby I have 120 days to return them. I hate to even think about that. I'm praying everything is just fine with baby and I'll be getting great use out of these for the next two years.
Soooooo.... I'm a freak. Let me explain- hubby is in the military and we don't live close to any family or old friends. We have a few friends here, but we don't expect much in the way of a baby shower. So I've been slowly buying things over the last several years. Maybe one or two things a month when I find a really good deal and with extra money I've stashed away. We now have almost everything we will need and a whole room dedicated to baby stuff. The only things we haven't bought a lot of are baby clothes and a travel system. Most things are gender neutral animal and jungle themed. I expect our families will send us clothes and gift cards, and we are hoping our parents will get us a travel system.
I bought a maternity maxi dress from Target before I found out I was preg with the intention of wearing it while not pregnant....LOL. I'm not a big girl but it has perfect straps for bras and is flowy and awesome! Its hot in AZ for a long time so I'm sure Ill get to wear it while showing x-D
