    I did that quite early, it's a nice feeling isn't it?
    I have my 16 week midwife appt tomorrow, when I have appointments it starts to feel more real :) (although I doubt it will sink in properly for me until baby actually arrives) :)

    What did you get?

    I don't have another midwife appointment until next week. My scan is ages away! Just as well I had that freebie scan in the interim just to keep me sane!

    I've been so worried that my OH forced me to buy baby stuff. :)
    My next scan isn't until 17th July and I don't have any keep me sane scans in between as OH think it's a waste of money because "baby is fine". I guess he has a point :)

    It's nice to buy those first bits, surprisingly, we have bought one new outfit then a few second hand bits too (they were mega cheap and great condition). Babies are bloody expensive.

    I still can't believe I'm buying things for my baby, I just sat and there smiling looking at all these baby grows and little outfits. It's so surreal still. My mother in law can't stop buying though haha, she's amazing xx

    I have nearly a whole wardrobe full of little bits! :oops: I just dont feel that anything going wrong feom here on is an option. I dont believe in jinxing or tempting fate, if something happens it would have happenes anyway. I spent too much time worrying in tri1 and now upon reflection I thonk it was such a waste and that I shouldve been really enjoying it!

    Im really glad youve biught some bits now dotty! Yheres absolutely nothong wrong with getting a bit mushy! :)

    Babies are made to be spoilt :D I've said I'm not buying any more stuff until baby is born and we know if to get pink or blue. But mothercare do have lovely white things...

    I'm not buying anything until after my 20 week scan. We're hoping to find out the sex and as I have a 7 month old we have all the basics anyway mostly neutral and blue. I'll only be buying a few gender specific bits of clothing if its a girl, that's all we need this time really.

    Tri hopping here but yeah I agree with the girls, you should enjoy it! I bought my first little outfits a few days before my 20 week scan, gender neutral stuff from boots (soooo cute!). I was on cloud nine and so glad now I did that as it's such a lovely memory! Enjoy! xxx
