    I bought a few things around 12 weeks then went mad after the 20 week scan, we have everything, including the nursery furniture and the nursery is nearly finished!!!

    the only things we need to get is a blue blind, some bottles (just incase), baby bath and pram!!

    Sales are the best time to start shopping - although we only have a few bits. If you start early you can pick up some great bargins.

    My man really dosn't wont us to but ANYTHING untill baby is born.
    My mum has bought me loads of baby stuff for xmas and my secret santa got me some cute bibs. I did buy a breast expresser with the rest of my xmas money from my parents.
    I really wont to buy stuff but we our getting alot of our stuff from my sisters and from James sister. cot, car seat, pushchair, highchair. clothes steriliser, toys ect. so we don't need to but much. But we need a moses basket and ive seen the cutest newborn clothing set in mother care that i just have to buy but ive resisted every time ive gone in to see if its still there. We dont have a room for the baby so no decorating untill we move into our own place :pray:

    As soon as OH would let me :rotfl: He wasn't comfortable with us buying very very early on. I think we waited until the 12 scan. Although he may have relented before that.

    i got a few essentials like neutral baby grows, vests and blankets after the 12 week scan, then we got 5 or 6 little girl outfits after the 20 week scan. We've been slowely getting all the nursary furniture and that since 12 weeks too. I love buying her stuff :dance: but im not getting anymore outfits! Im still not 100% shes a girl....id hate to spend loads of money for her to be a him and be stuck with loadsa pink gear :lol: Im a paranoid person, but even my MW said " they can get it wrong....."

    I bought my cot bedding set at about 14 weeks and have been buying nappies since 13 weeks.

    Bought a cot toy, a pack of neutral baby grows, baby monitor and a steraliser at Christmas time when I was Christmas shopping.

    Havent bought anything else yet, just had my 20 week scan this morning so I will start to buy the bigger things now I know all is well.
