    Hey ladies,
    For the past two days (I suppose as it's the weekend) I have been shopping and haven't been able to stop myself going in all the baby shops, looking at nursery furniture, prams and baby clothes etc! I haven't bought anything yet but it was hard not to, so I suppose I just wondered whether any of you have been shopping yet, what you've bought and how early?

    I have just come back from Holland and bought a few baby suits etc. I just figured they are so different that no one else will have them over here so it would be silly not to... and they were in the sale which was an extra bonus!

    We went to babies r us today to get an idea of what sorts of things we may need/want. Was really useful as we have narrowed down the pram thing and also now have an idea of most costs and things.

    I have another scan on Tuesday and if all is ok I intend to start looking more seriously and if I see a bargain I may buy something. I don't do supersticion though!

    yes, we've bought a baby mattress and yesterday we went shopping for the nursery furniture! We already have the crib snd have set it up, and hopefully soon we will get the dresser/hutch and rocker/recliner I picked out yesterday! It's all about positive thinking. It keeps me occupied and positive through this morning sickness!

    I haven't bought anything, but apparently my mother has. :) (first grandchild) I did order the pottery barn kids catalog, so I am sure the shopping will begin soon. And I know I will go nuts as soon as I find out what gender the baby is.

    Ive bought a moses basket, Avent bottles & sterilizer (they on rollback for half price at asda at the min) other than that nothing.

    OH and I decided to buy a few things every month until the baby is born just so its not one big expense in 1 month as we do have 2 other kids :)

    Just ordered maternity jeans and trousers from mamas and papas as they were on sale, last time round I found over the bump trousers to be most comfy so I couldn't resist these, feel like it's a bit early though. We'll only need baby clothes if it's a girl as the house is coming down with our wee son's clothes, he was the first grandchild and so was so spoilt! We have all the paraphernalia we need like steriliser, bath, swings etc, but will need a double pram/buggy and a new house as we only have two bedrooms!

    I've shopped and picked out most of the big things I want to get, but I'm going to wait until after the sex is determined so I can do clothes at the same time.

    However, I did buy a ton of diapers I got on sale! I have like 300 diapers and wipes now! haha

    I've bought baby suits already, keeps me busy and helps pass the time :) people think I'm mad buying so much so early, but who cares, I know most are just trying to help save heartache should anything bad happen, but I'll just put it all in storage if worse was to happen.
    Here's what I have :) https://i406.photobucket.com/albums/pp149/starxmaterial_x/IMG00077-20110129-2007.jpg

    I think it's natural to be excited about getting things. I would be worried if I weren't! I browse online stores every day and can't wait to start buying. I did get a Moses Basket though 60% off.
