    Oh my word how organised!!! I've literally bought:

    • one set of grows (owl and fox set from next - neutral)
    • one neutral blanket


    My OH wants to start buying nappies/wipes etc etc however at the moment we have zero room in the house as getting loads of work done to the rooms in prep for bubs. Walls knocked through etc so I've told him no!! Lol. However don't get me wrong, we've looked at everything and I pretty much know exactly what I want so once its time so shop...ill prob get most in one or two trips. Lol. Xx

    Yeah once you start you do have to store it all!
    We were going to add in walls to split rooms up but have decided to leave it a focus on our fertility loan and finances incase we have car issues instead as id be more worried about that after birth, your right to do it now tho while you have no baby.
    Love baby window shopping

    That's it, we're currently just me, the OH and our pup (totally ruined and treated better than me an the OH) but I couldn't be doing with the mess, dust and the time he takes to change a flaming lightbulb once bubbs is here. Haha. Baby window shopping is my new favourite thing, although staying yellow I'm always drawn more to the girls clothes so who knows...

    Ive bought a few bits since my 20 week scan - all neutral as we're staying team yellow! Couple of blankets, hooded towel, few baby grows and vests and some scratch mitts :) We have ordered furniture for nursery and have to wait 3 weeks for delivery so my plan is to finish decorating before furniture arrives and then we can start filling the drwers with lots of lovely baby things! My new hobby is baby shopping - love it!! X

    The only thing we need is to finish off paying for the pram and then we have everything! But now we have the last 14 week to relax and enjoy :) xx

    I've got a few things in but only because hubby likes buying in bulk and my mum was buying us the pram :)

    iCandy Apple Pushchair and carrycot with footmuff, changing bag, parasol etc
    Car seat adaptors for pushchair (eBay)
    cotton wool
    20 odd babygrows in various sizes (can't resist buying one each time I'm out)
    Cover/shawl thing for buggy
    toy thing for handlebar of buggy
    Mamas and Papas elephant toy thing


    the below from beamingbaby or something like that

    48 packs of baby wipes
    2 organic sponges??
    6 bottles of baby hair/body wash
    24 packs of face wipes which hubby thinks he bought for baby but they're for adults :)

    Hubby is due back from work in a couple of weeks for the last time before baby is born so he's going to order nursery furniture before he comes back and that should be all the big stuff done :)

    My mum is getting us the moses basket too and I'm ordering my car seat and isofix base next Friday on pay day.

    You are putting me to shame, I have literally bought 2 things:
    10 piece newborn clothing set
    bottle steriliser

    Plus I have a changing bag on order.

    lol

    My parents are buying us a moses basket and a cotbed though and I don't intend on buying pushchair until last few weeks as we live in a 2 bed flat and storage is an issue til we have a clear out.

    My mum has also bought us a few wipes, feeding spoons, blankets etc and my nan is busy knitting us some little jumpers etc as will be winter when bubs arrives.

    As we are staying team yellow we don't intend on buying much else until bubs arrives x

    I've got everything.

    I was already fully kitted out from my little girl - nursery all set up etc. The only thing new I needed was a pram and a highchair (as my daughter's pram was rubbish and her highchair went mouldy and manky in the shed). I bought these last week after the 20w scan.
    I've got all the white/neutral vests, bibs, babygrows in all sizes, and have gone on a big gender-specific shopping spree so that baby will have some bits of its own.
    I have bought all the Christmas presents for both children too. Quite ironic really, as I'm not a particularly organised person. I'm just really worried about being out of work as my pay drops to nothing in a matter of a few weeks. I'm trying to spend while I have money.

    I might look at getting some cloth nappies, as this would save £ in the long term. Although I'm not sure how I'd cope with the extra work of reusables.
    Oh, I know, I need breast pads.
