If so what are you buying and when? If not, when will you start buying?<br><br>
I bought a lot of stuff during early pregnancy. I think it's because I had so much morning sickness that I needed some form of encouragement to keep going. I've got about 50 diapers (fitted, AIO, and a nice stack of prefolds), several organic cotton and soy outfits, a couple of blankets. I've found some of Holden's baby clothes (I can't find many of the infant baby clothes but I've found some 6-12 month stuff).<br><br>
I haven't bought anything for awhile since I've been saving and planning a family trip to Florida (we leave in 13 days, oh, I can't wait!) I really need to buy some pp mama cloth. Does anybody have any favorites? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/treehugger.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Treehugger">: I usually wear a Diva cup so I'm totally out of the loop on good mama cloth.

We've bought some of the larger things. We have a crib, swing, car seat, and a breast pump. We quit buying for a while because we were going out of the country and I didn't want everything in limbo at the post office. (Where we are we pretty much have to buy everything online)<br><br>
We haven't bought any clothes or smaller items yet. I don't want the room to get too cluttered too quickly, because DH uses it to get ready in the morning and all of his clothes are in there.

I bought a "My Brest Friend" nursing pillow and am so excited to use it! I bought one baby outfit, and my mom has bought several.

still nothing.<br><br>
i am buying some larger shirts today and perhaps a few "bra tops" to help out a bit. i suppose that doesn't count because it's not for the baby.<br><br>
i did price out moby wraps yesterday. but, no purchase as of yet. we're making a list of what we want, and then we'll give it to family for suggestions, and whatever they don't get, then we'll go ahead and purchase.

I bought some newborn dipes (Swaddlebees) and some baby booties but that is it so far. We aren't finding out the sex so I don't really want to buy clothes.

When I wasn't feeling so hot back in January and spending tons of time on the couch, I read Baby Bargains and made lists of stuff I thought I would want or need later. I put together a registry online at Babies R Us, mostly for organizational purposes (and have edited a lot since then.) I haven't actually been buying stuff UNLESS I see a great deal on something used that is exactly what I registered for - so I've bought just a couple things on Craigslist and at a consignment sale last week that I knew I would need... a boppy, a snap n go stroller frame, etc.<br>
We have spent money on paint and carpet for the baby room (did this early because we were going to use the same colors regardless and it involved a huge room re-purposing transition in our little house). And when we found out it was a girl I bought ribbon and odds and ends to decorate old picture frames I have been saving up. So I had a fun crafty night with a friend last week <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
Dh's parents are buying the crib and a dresser so we ordered those last week, mainly because I am ready for this cute room we painted to have stuff in it! And I would rather do the assembly now rather than later.<br>
So yes I've started the decorating portion because I'm so excited... but since we're on a tight budget I am really trying to wait it out and let other people buy stuff in the next few months!

Oh, I forgot that I bought a new WAHM-made wrap a few months ago. We were really broke when Holden was born and I bought this Maya Wrap that had been returned and therefore discounted. When I saw this one I had to have it.<br><br>
I just finished knitting a baby blanket today. It's knitted with bamboo yarn--so, so soft. Now I'm knitting a soaker.

I haven't bought anything yet but I have been researching just about everything. I've even started a registry, though it is pretty empty still. I'm waiting until after the 20w ultrasound. Hopefully we'll find out the sex and everything will seem much more real then.

A friend loaned me her stash of old Mother mags and one issue suggesed LunaPads. I took a look at their website and they have a pp kit. I'm a Diva cup user too, so although these are more expensive than GladRags, I will appreciate having good quality cloth on hand.<br><br>
I haven't been able to stop buying cute little outfits and books for the baby. I scour the thrift stores for good scores...

I went looking around at things today, but probably won't buy anything until early-mid summer.

I bought a pack of newborn diapers. LOL. That's it. Once I find out the sex, then I'll start buying all kinds of stuff.
