i'm olny 12 weeks preg, and i know i still have a long road to make.
and bad things can happen. but the other day was 50% off all clothing, and ended up looking at the baby clothes.
i figured if sadfully something bad did happen i have friends due before and after me, who they could go to.
BUT.................... when should i really be buying them?
50 cents a onsie was just to good to pass up.

  • I didn't start until I found out the sex of my baby. So around 20 weeks.

  • It's up to you. Are you currently buying gender neutral clothing? It's normal to feel excited, and want to start having 'little one' things around. Congratulations!!

  • i started buying clothing very soon. You can always buy neutral clothing until you find out the sex, especially if you catch a good deal. But if you end up like me with my daughter, and not know what your having, then what can you do?

  • It's totally your call on how exciting you're becoming. I brought clothes at the 7 month point and I didn't know the sex.
