A onesie for announcing to Dh. A cradle and highchair that a friend was selling for cheap. That's about it.. really the only other needs are a crib and maybe a new swing. And clothes if It's a boy

I bought a pump a couple months before we ttc bc it was a good deal. I also bought a Cheerleading bib on clearance at Target for $1.59 this weekend. Between me and my pregnant cheer friend I am sure one of us will have a girl. If not DD can use it for her babies lol

I can't bring myself to even look. Still too worried. And the sad part is we need everything. Lol. My youngest is 12. I own absolutely not one baby item. Not sure when we will get brave enough to shop.

I think I am going to wait until later in the pregnancy to buy anything. All I really need is a bassinet and some crib sheets.

You would think because I have 2 boys, that if we had a girl, we will need everything. However.... we were told at our anatomy u/s with Andrew, that he was a girl. So... we have 6 totes of boy stuff (he was actually a boy), and 6 totes of girl stuff (that is BRAND NEW), haha! So, we have pretty much everything we need for either gender.

Just the stuff Kelli is making. There's not much cute local baby shopping to be done, but I've been poking around online. We have so much time, though, that I'm not in a hurry. I know my MIL will be doing a lot of shopping, and then I have my baby shower in early June. I figure I can buy whatever else I need after that and still have plenty of time for it to get shipped here.

I think I bought a lot compared to all of you. I am single, dont make much money, and doing it alone... soooo, I figure I have to start now if I am going to be ready for the baby. I buy a few things here and there and buy one big thing each pay. I bought crib, mattress, a gender neutral nice swing, a little monster stuffed animal, a few tiny things like an adorable bib with an elephant and hearts saying "I Love You!" and I just ordered my baby monitor with the motion detector thing.

I'm a couponer so I've been stocking up on diapers and wipes and have approx six to eight months of them. didn't actually "buy" them but still have them in a closet. We started stocking up before we even conceived and are doing pretty good so far

I bought some newborn clothes from Gymboree. They were on super clearance and I couldn't pass them up! They're all boy, but I figured if we end up with a girl, I can always pass them on to someone else Other than that, some bottles on clearance at Target, Gerber newborn tshirts, some cloth diapers. I'm waiting to know the gender before we buy anything else.

I dont plan on buying anything till we find out the gender. If its another boy I dont really need anything but a new stroller. One of DHs cousin in law is saving all of her son's clothes for me and I already have a crib. I dont even plan to have a shower if its another boy.

- A cute stuffed bear (one of the triplets from Brave)
- A girly themed pink onesie with a kitten on it (super cute! If I don't have a girl, I have 2 pregnant friends, so hopefully I can give it to one of them)
- the cutest gender neutral (light green) monkey blanket, given to us by my grandma!

So not a ton yet, but I have already heard from family that a lot of the big things like a crib etc will be provided by family at the baby shower. We might start stocking up on diapers and wipes soon though. We can always have a lot of those. Any ideas on how many newborn sizes we should get? I hear they grow out of them pretty quickly and don't want to waste money, but I want to have a decent supply ready so we don't have to leave the house right away if we don't want to or can't.

I have bought a few girly outfits, but only because they were out of of production disney outfits and I would have bought them if I was pregnant or not (or if we already knew we were having a boy! ) other than that I have bought some newborn cloth diapers in gender neutral prints. Everything else will be waiting 2.5 weeks for us to find out!

I've bought sleep sacs, diapers, wipes, glass bottles, a sleep sheep and a few gender neutral Christmas outfits that were super cheap.

Not allowing myself to buy anything else until we know gender.

I have bought One thing. It is a blanket that came with a little wubby(doll in this case) I really shouldnt have because it is all girl but I couldnt help myself. It is i the top of my closet still in the bag with the reciept so I can take it back, or gift it. A couple weeks or so before we gt a BFP I took all our baby stuff and donated it. I still have the crib, that will be passed down eventually. I have a highchair because Toe still sits in it to eat. We have the bedding set that we got for Toe, but I am hoping with much desperation to buy the pink one I have loved for years. We really don't have much, but I will wait until 28 weeks before I start buying probably. Maybe I will hit the bag sale after we learn of the gender.
