to buy a bunch of teeny tiny baby stuff?<br><br>
My DH took the boys to town today, so I've been looking a maternity clothes, newborn diapers, baby carriers, newborn clothes...all that stuff I haven't needed for a couple of years.<br><br>
Have to pace myself!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Not I. I plan on reusing all of the baby clothes I saved. I need to feel like keeping them all will have served some purpose <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

wow, you're strong!<br><br>
I kept all of the boys' stuff, too, I have enough clothes for a dozen baby boys...but that doesn't mean I don't want to buy more! and diapers - those I didn't save. And carriers! Oh, my.<br><br>
I haven't actually bought anything yet, it's just the wants, you know? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

ummmm....not me!<br><br>
We won't be finding out the gender with this LO, and as I have TONS of baby girl stuff (from my 8 m.o.) and a good bit of gender-neutral (since we didn't find out with her either), I really have no excuse.<br><br>
Plus, I am (YAWN) wayyy tooo exhausted to even think about shopping. I'm in the stealing-naps-in-my-car-over-my-lunchbreak stage (DOUBLE YAWN).

Me! It distracts me from how sick I feel.<br><br>
I bought a bunch of babylegs online yesterday. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag"> But they were super priced and part of the proceeds goes to a friends fund for the walk for breast cancer!<br><br>
But that's all. I've been thinking a lot about how I'll decorate the baby's 'nook' in my room and can't wait to start gathering knitted items. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Not me, but dh mentioned checking out the car seat selection when he was at Target, lol. Sadly, that was the perfect opportunity for ds#1 to mention how glad he is that we're done with baby stuff. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> We haven't made any plans to tell the kids yet.<br><br>
It will be an interesting shopping experiences. My kids were all born in warm weather - May, July and August. They spent the first few months in t-shirts and diapers for the most part. I've never bought newbie winter clothes!

I'm hoping not to buy anything that I already have, although we're going to need to get some stuff because two is just different than one, LOL! I did, however, win this on ebay:<br><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280494234184" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=280494234184</a><br>
And she threw in two matching little hats! I figure these will make great coming home outfits.

how sweet annette! I actually bought a belly band today at target. That is huge for me since I am really resistant to buying stuff, especially before I'm sure this one with stick. But since I'm still nauseous, my boobs are big and full, and my belly is getting bigger, I figured that would be better than actually buying maternity clothes yet (which I don't need anyway yet).

Oh my goodness, it is SO hard, but I would like to be 12 weeks before I buy anthing clothing related, farther for anything furniture related like a co-sleeper. I *think* we are not finding out the gender of this one, so I will need to buy neutral as we go since it is harder to find. I also need to start saving some cash for after baby gets here and we need more gender specific clothing since neutral will only last us probably one size. I have almost all the stuff I will need beyond clothing though, except for a bassinet or co-sleeper, and a swing. I may need to pick up a few more diapers too, but the ones I have should last until I am ready to take baby into public.

It's been awhile since I had a NB, but I think I'm set on NB clothes for now. It's all GN stuff anyway. I do want to buy a Moby Wrap since that worked so great for my last baby.

I'm looking but not buying! lol Yet, anyway. And not at clothes....more at cloth diapers, debating which soft structured carrier I want, as well as whether to buy or make a Moby wrap, thinking about carseats and a jogging stroller, etc. I am definitely holding off really getting into it until at least June, though...I don't want to buy anything that will make me sad if we end up miscarrying...though I'm 7 weeks tomorrow, and feeling sicker, so I think it's all a good sign.<br><br>
So, suffice it to say, I keep thinking about baby things and maternity clothes, but I'm not talking about it with DH yet. Heck, we haven't even talked about names yet! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">

Me, too. DD was born in April and was always too hot in anything with feet. If the new one is like his/her sister, I won't need much really warm indoor stuff. But we are looking at infant car seats because it will be winter, DD was in a convertible car seat because we'd just pop her out and into a carrier, can't do that this time (unless we are parked indoors) but haven't bought anything yet, DH is thrilled we will use the many bags of clothes I insisted on keeping, but they get less gender neutral past the infant stage...looking forward to buying some teeny tiny baby things, though!!

the new baby's room is currently an office, but the other day i sort of redecorated it a tiny bit with things we already have. Put up blue curtains and a few pictures and then i decided on a theme. DD's room is fairy themed, lavender big fairy silk canopy over her bed lots of whte gauze lavender silk curtains and a few watercolor painting i did of a mommy nursing that are lavender blue colored, we are a waldorf family<br><br>
so i decided baby's room will be moon and stars themed. Light blue, we will get the sarah's silk celestial canopy for bed (we will get a full size bed that baby and i will cosleep in for a few years, while dh sleeps with dd probably we also have a master bedroom but it will be the dogs room most likely haha until dh and i get back in our own bed. We are pretty sure this baby is a boy.... but we will see, we are definitely going to find out as soon as possible haha<br><br>
havent bought much, 1 hat on ebay i couldnt pass up. but i have a huge amazon wishlist going of moon and stars things.... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I'm almost 10 weeks though baby will probably be born end of nov although due date is dec 2nd so i guess i feel sort of close to that 3rd trimester just waiting to hear a heart beat!!!!!! then i can start shopping haha ok maybe not maybe we will wait at least till 6 months <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> if i can help it

No, still cautious. It's hard to resist. After we get the first U/S, we have a trip to NYC the following week. I love all the flagship stores there like Macy's, GAP, and H&M. So I might go a little nuts while we're there.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">

I stalk baby websites... those clothes, furniture, and toys are irresistible! But I don't want to buy anything for a long time. Call me superstitious.
