Now that I've hit the 2nd trimester I feel safer buying a few things.
I'm big into baby carriers and everyone is trying to raise xmas money so they are going for super cheap at TBW. I've been looking for a few specific things and got lucky this week. I bought 3 carriers just today and 2 a few days ago. All for less than $100! Amazing! I offered just $5-$10 less than what they were asking and they all accepted so these are my Christmas presents to myself and baby

Since I already have about 4 pouches and 3 mei tais my DH just rolls his eyes and doesn't get the obsession

I'm having serious feelings this is a boy and have been tempted to pick up a few boy things I saw on sale at Target but I've resisted so far!

That will be the first purchase. And one of the few.
We absolutely LOVE our Phil & Teds stroller with doubles kit - worth every penny!!!

I bought a flannel swaddler off of craigslist for 5 bucks and its brand new! I've also gotten DH the organic hemp hotsling and myself a petunia pickle bottom diaper bag all from ebay. The other day I was in Macy's and finally bought my first baby outfit. Its a white gown w/ polkadots and embroidered ducks at the bottom, w/ matching booties, mittens, and a hat that says "just ducky".

It was adorable and dh loves it....for now we keep it hangning in our bedroom to look at every day.

I bought a couple of XS diapers and covers when I was also buying some new dipes for DS so that I could get up to the free shipping total. I probably won't buy anything else until we find out the gender.

I know, baby shoes are so unnecessary, but dh and I are swing dancers, it's how we met and a large part of how we got to know each other. Our dancing shoes are matching black/white saddle style and a few days before I found out I was pregnant, I was looking at our shoes sitting next to each other and thought it would make an adorable pregnancy announcement to take a picture of his big shoes, my smaller ones, and itty bitty baby ones, with a line about how we're expecting a new pair of dancing feet. The problem is the only ones I can find are $30-$40. For baby shoes! That don't even get walked on! Sigh...if anyone sees any cheap somewhere send me a line.
I love your idea! here is an ebay link with infant saddle shoes.

Kissaluvs opened its outlet store over Thanksgiving weekend and guaranteed to fill all orders, so I just had to get a dozen size 0s. It was so precious to hold those little newborn diapers again.

When I was pregnant with Laynie, I was 6 weeks along and I wanted to buy a baby book so badly. So, I bought and adorable neutral one with a giraffe on the cover and started to fill it out. I didn't want to miss the chance to fill out my feelings... So, now that I know about this baby, I am searching for a new baby book. One that I will love and is gender neutral.

Before I was pg, I wanted to buy every thing I saw. I did buy about 12 nb diapers on super sale. But now, i really want to wait and see if it's a boy or a girl. If it's a boy, I don't need to buy anything, if it's a girl...well, that's a different story!

My new babe has the exact same due date as my 2 year old DD, and I have all of her baby clothes boxed and organized by size/season in storage. So, if this is a girl I will not get to buy anything! If it's a boy I'm going to be hitting spring consignment sales. We also have tons of diapers, really cute ones, in every size so I don't need those. I just bought one more wrap (I already have two, but I had to buy something!) and I plan on buying a water sling as soon as I find one for sale somewhere used or new. I wish I knew such a sling exsisted when I first had my DD, I would have bathed more often. We really don't need anything for this baby aside from boy clothes should it have a penis. It's kind of disappointing to not get to buy anything, but good for my empty wallet.

I bought a really cute onsie just the other day. It will work for a girl or a boy. If I have a boy, he will end up wearing all of his big brother's old clothes, I feel kind of bad that he will only have hand me downs, so I will probably make an effort to get a few new outfits for the baby, even if it is another boy.

Not a thing. I am afraid of jinxing myself.

Plus, I figure I should wait to find out the sex. I put a hold on selling DS' clothes, even though they will be opposite seasons. I'll hang on to his things because he seemed to take a long time to change sizes and I figure that some of it may fit.
