    Hello girlies :wave:

    Just wondering how much stuff everyone's bought. So far I've bought absolutely nothing. Zilch. We said we wouldn't start buying anything till after Christmas at least but just curious to see where everyone else is up to.

    My main motivation however is that I've just seen the buggy and car seat that I want on ebay for £90 instead of the £300 it'd be new. This is the best bargain I've come across yet and have just got to convince DH it's a good plan. Hearing from you guys is going to be ammunition for my cause :D

    We've got a cupboard full of stuff but nothing really "big' if you know what I mean.

    We have a few toys, a few outfits, mitts, hats, socks, bibs, nappies, something stupid like 35 short sleeved vests (got carried away and kept buying cute ones LOL). We bought the ELC Sit Me Up Cosy which is gorgeous. We love the Blossom farm range. Too cute :D

    Just ordered our travel system which should be here within 2 weeks although the car seat arrived an hour ago as it had to be ordered from elsewhere. We have the crib but are having trouble getting hold of the rest of the nursery furniture we want.

    We haven't bought anything like a sterliser yet. We need to get our butts in gear I think. Part of me is starting to panic so we're going to make a list this week. :D

    Probably was sorry hun - I've had puter problems the last few days and am just trying to catch up with the important stuff like this rather than work emails
    :rotfl:

    I feel better about starting to buy stuff listening to you guys and I don't know what you mean about not being organised Debbie - sounds verrreeee organised to me!

    I thnk part of the reluctance to buy is that I somehow think it's all soooooo far away because I've got no bump or symptoms or anything. It's just business as usual without the alcohol round here. I look at people like Debbie and others in 2nd tri, thinking somehow their due dates are months and months closer than mine and it seems perfectly reasonable them buying stuff but too early for me because I'm so far behind them all - d'oh :doh:

    Don't worry. We hadn't bought a single thing, and I mean nothing, until our 20 week scan which was done at 20+4. :D

    we've bought a few things. We got the moses basket, mobile, matress, cot (early, i know but it was half price :cheer: ) and all the bedding. Most of everything else we have was donated by family and friends who wanted to clear their lofts out! We've got a few baby grows and vests, a changing matt, and ive just ordered the changing table/dresser. We spent about 50 quid on outfits for her last night, seeing as we now know she is a 'her'. It was lovely.

    Nothing :lol:

    Well, I have some breast pads (given to me by a friend that I gave them too over a year ago :rotfl: ) and a birth ball which is too small :evil:

    We already have a cot and car seat from our first, in fact we do have a 3 wheeler push chair that's suitable from birth but I refuse to use it - it tried to kill me... seriously! It drags me down kerbs into the road :shock:

    It will be used for when we go to see the pony though, but that's it!

    Hi girls

    Been a while since I was on so hello to you all.

    We decided not to buy anything until we had our 20 week scan and since then we have gone mad and bought everything!

    We went out last weekend to look for ideas and ended up buying all our furniture, bedding, pram, steriliser, etc. We are decorating the nursery now so I feel pretty organised. Yeah!

    All I have is a Brevi bath/changing unit, Fisher Price bouncing cradle and a Moses basket that were given to me. They are absolutely immaculate and look like they've never been used. Other than that I haven't got anything else. My mum has told me though she has made me a hamper full of everything he needs from baby wipes to bottles etc!

    I am going to get the car seat and pram after christmas i think.

    I haven't got anything...... :?

    Keep thinking I need to.. but.. I don't know how/where to start!!

    Think I will go SALE mad for baby things end of Dec/ Jan time.. and then stock up on everything then.

    I was told, to just even buy a couple of packs of nappy's or wipes per week... so far I bought 4 packs one week.. and thats it!

    So far I've bought a changing bag that was £25 reduced to £10, and the travel system, cos I saw it on ebay for almost half the price it is in the shops.
    Will hopefully be doing some serious baby shopping after xmas, I can't wait! :D

    We've got cute little things that we've seen like a cuddly zebra and giraffe from mothercare and a "I love daddy" babygro set that I got for oh.

    We've also got him a little hat, some tiny trainers and a shawl.

    We will probably start to buy the bigger things after the wedding and Christmas :dance:
