  • With my first I was probably past 16 weeks. That's when I went home to visit my mom and she took me baby shopping. I don't remember buying anything before that because we were saving money for the stroller/carseat.

    I'm like 23 weeks with my 5th and haven't bought a thing and got rid of almost everything from my other kids. I just have a few clothes I saved (mostly girl stuff since I have 3 girls and just the 1 boy and he's 8 1/2).

    As for the waiting until 12 weeks. That's what I was doing last year...and then I miscarried at 12 weeks. Just when I was about ready to start telling people. My kids never even knew I was pregnant and I haven't told anyone (IRL) about this pregnancy yet.

  • I was about 3 mths pregnant when I was out buy things. Clothes, diapers, wipes, sheets, onesies, bottles and lots more and thank God I did. I used everything from my babyshower to me buying things.
