When did you start shopping for your baby?

I'm 22 weeks and 2 days along pregnant with FOR SURE a boy, confirmed by 2 ultrasounds :)

I have this huge urge to start buying things like bottles, blankets, clothes, nothing huge yet lol.

When did you start buying things for baby??

I started as soon as I knew what it was.

My mom is throwing me a shower so I'm very cautious on what I should do but I was thinking just little things here and there ya know? I got rid of ALL my son's baby items so I have to start fresh and I can't wait any longer I really want to go shopping!! Lol.

When I knew what the gender was.

I like to be done by 34 weeks. I like everything washed and in its place by that time. The later I wait, the more the stuff piles into one month's budget. It is easier for me to spread things out. However, this is baby #4, I'm 22 weeks 3 days, and I've done absolutely NOTHING yet. I'll be busy in a month!

With my first I didn't buy anything until after I found out the gender! This time around I'm waiting to see what I get from my baby shower so we know what we need to buy.

I can not agree more. At my shower we got almost nothing but clothes, and she's still working her way through those four months later. It's really, really hard, but I would wait until after the shower (if you're having one) unless you see something you absolutely have to have.
