Everyone knows it's a girl. I didn't think about it at the time but after we announced, someone mentioned that if people don't know what it is they'd be more likely to get stuff we need than cute girl stuff. Oh well.

And if you know where things are from, most stores let you return things for store credit (like a gift card). So you could get other things there.

I'm not sure where you're located. I'm in the US.
Ummm from my understanding (from what a friend told me) that you can take things back from a shower to Walmart and they'll give you a store credit. She said that she even brought things back from Target and they took them, she said they'll only do it like 3x so I'm trying to get everything together that I'm going to take back and do it in one trip. And save one of the others for diapers/wipes incase Jr is alergic to some or something. I guess you just go to the return/exchange counter.

Nobody gave gift recipts lmao so I just left the tags on everything I'm taking back. I may do it tomorrow so I will let you know how it turns out!

I'm in Canada! Yeah I heard stores like walmart and Babies R Us will do that if they sell the item! We'll have to see tomorrow I'm not expecting many gift receipts either. Hopefully they'll save them for the more expensive items though

I'm so excited to get everything sorted out. I'm finishing work this Friday so it's going to be so great to sit down and see what we have, what we need and start some more shopping

That's awesome Powell! Do you already know what you'll spend it on? Or will you save the store credit for when you need things like diapers & wipes after the baby gets here?

I got one of these to go in the car seat to make it more newborn friendly - http://www.walmart.com/ip/Child-of-M...ddler/20682857

And a basket to wash passies and stuff in the dishwasher.

Still have $60something on the gift card so I think I'll save it for diapers/wipes and stuff unless something pops up that I realize that we need but forgot to get lol

haha good for you Powell!

omg, my shower was beyond amazing. my mom, mil and sil did such an amazing job. my family and friends were so generous! we were given lots of useful stuff from the registry, all our big items and lots of gift cards :'))
plus most people actually brought gift receipts

Claire that's to bad! I have a feeling my baby turned too. I keep feeling a hard ball on my right side and hiccups up there too. can't wait to find out on Wednesday
