How far along were you when you bought for 1st baby item?

I am not that far along, and I am ready to hit the stores, and not just because I like to shop, but also because I don't know what the future holds, and I'll be doing this all on my own.

  • My mom and I were shopping like crazy the first month. I think as soon as I told her, I was only 2 wks along when I found out, she started a shopping list.

  • From now on, I will wait until the second trimester. I lost my baby at almost 12 weeks and one of the things that I was thankful for was that I had no items to look at to depress me further.

  • I was 3 months along. My Great-Grandmother brought me shopping and we bought some socks and some onesies. She died 2 months later so I am so very happy we went together.
