  • With my first I didn't buy anything really, for I received all I needed at my baby shower. I had my shower at 8 months. For my second I bought clothes here and there when I found out it was a boy at 19 weeks. That's really it, for I had saved everything else from my baby shower. We pulled everything from the attic when I was about 7.5 months along.

  • I bought something as soon as I found out. It was a neutral bid that said I love mommy. I was about 10 wks, with my first. For my second and third I waited until I knew the sex and then I went nuts
