  • no not too early. SHOP AWAY!
    I got my son (7 years ago) a sleeper within a week of finding out I was pregant. (it was a birthday present for the (then) husband. He didn't know I was pregnant and thats how I told him).

  • never know what will offense. if its ur first wait till about 12 weeks till ur outta the miscarriage window..then shop. and that also goes for telling people besides immediate family (husband and maybe ur parents and close friends)

  • I was like you-- I was very excited when I first found out that I was pregnant, especially since it took us 2 years to get pregnant. I went out right away and purchased a set of yellow bibs. That pregnancy went well, and we now have a healthy 16 month old baby.

    The second time I got pregnant, I was again very excited. We were about to buy a double stroller when I miscarried at 6 weeks. I was devastated.

    If you'd like to purchase a little something, I think that's perfectly appropriate. However, I recommend waiting until you're farther along for bigger items.

    Congrats, and I hope you have a healthy pregnancy!

  • I think if you want to go buy something for your baby, you go right on ahead!  I never buy anything until I learn what sex the baby is but to each their own.  I think it's a good idea, actually.  It's an exciting time, enjoy it!  And good luck new mama!

  • just don't get to many neutral stuff because when you do find out what it is your going to want to shop away again.

  • Personally I would wait until the start of the second trimester.

  • I'm 7.5 Months along and haven't started shopping yet. Still in a state of caution, I suppose... Good Luck!

  • I have been shopping since I was 4 weeks. I am a teen mom and have to buy as I can. If I start early then I mayb done by the bday. U could always hold on to neutral clothes too. Or give as gifts. Not being cold thought....good luck
