I find myself baby shopping a lot lately, whether online or in store. We have one boutique where I live that has so many cute things. I have several outfits for boys and girls size 0-3 and 3-6, I won't buy bigger until I am actually pregnant and know what I am having to make sure that it is the right season. I have numerous sets of pacifiers, toys, and I have started making cloth diapers and burp cloths. I keep everything in my closet that I cleared out specifically to make it the baby stash closet.

So does anyone else have a super secret baby stash?

Yes I have quite a large stash. I used to work at a major department store merchandising the children's department. Whenever items moved to the clearance racks I would get first picking at it and I have gotten some really cute nice quality items for dirt cheap after also using my employee discount. Since I stopped working there I did not buy much until about a month ago where I have started to look for deals on ebay. So far I have a couple boxes of boy and girl clothes newborn - 12months. I know it seems silly to buy when you don't know if you will have a boy or girl but I decided whatever I have left that I can't use I am going to donate.

I also have a couple drawers full of maternity clothes that I have been collecting for 3 years. So hard to find things I like that I decided to just look on a regular basis and whenever I find something I like get it.

Good to know I am not the only one shopping early. I also receintly starting reading pregnancy books and magazines. I see nothing wrong with this, I just think of it as more time to enjoy it all.

I haven't bought anything, and I doubt I would until at least I confirm a healthy pregnancy! LOL But thats just me, I was tempted to go crazy as soon as I got my BFP in May but I never.

No, I probably won't buy much until after the 1st trimester. All I have are a few onesies my mom got me in August.

Not really considering I have two other young children. I have saved the majority of their things so I wouldn't really need much for a new baby anyways. I have however bought 4 newborn diapers in the last few months. I have a brand I like the most so whenever there is a good deal or print I really love I just buy it.

Nope. I am already bananas over having a baby and buying cute baby stuff would throw me over the edge. lol. I will wait until I get my BFP and am at least 8-10 weeks preggo. Then I will grab things little by little until the munchkin arrives. We waited until the bitter end with our other kids and were scrambling to have even the basic necessities. Not doing that again. lol.

I haven't bought anything, but I do have a baby boy stash! I have a box just for baby boy clothes and a couple other boy linens and such (leftover from when I shopped at garage sales during earlier pregnancies). Even though we have 2 girls, I have just been keeping them, so that's my secret stash I guess, lol. I doubt I will buy anything though until I know I am pregnant.

I hoarded everything from the first 3. So, I have no room for extra's. Really all I will buy next pg is a brand new cloth diaper stash. And maybe a baby hammock.
