  • I would go ahead with everything except the car seat maybe if you are wanted to get blue or pink in it., though it's not necessary. The crib you could get ,just wait on the sheets and all the extras that go with it. The other stuff comes in neutral colors. I know I started early, bought a little at a time.

  • I said go ahead and do whatever you feel is right. I'm 23 weeks and I'm so excited and so ready to start buying stuff. I haven't bought a single thing yet and it's driving me crazy :) I'd just go ahead and buy all the things that aren't gender related and then get the rest in June. Good luck to you!

  • the stuff that ive been looking at is like a lime green and dark brown to me thats kinda boyish i dont know why but im very picky with colors lol. im looking at the sprout n grow collection from target. i guess i can get the crib and wait on the sheets and stuff. i just want to be able to get the stuff while we have the money. i think i will wait until i get a better reading at the ultra sound. i just want to buy all the big stuff and start decorating the nursery lol im so anxious. even though i know its better to be patient. grrr lol
