    Hi,
    Just a curious question. I'm 6 months pregnant now and haven't gotten a thing for the baby.... no clothes, no pram, no furniture, no other supplies, and the nursery room isn't done up either. I'm trying to get an idea of what I'll be needing and what others have got so far.

    So how many months preggo are you and what have you got/done so far?

    Thanks!

    I'm 19 weeks and I have her crib/mattress, stroller, car seat, vibrating chair, playpen, highchair (for when the time comes) and some clothes and little stuff (washclothes, some diapers, towels) already, but we need to still go out and get her some more clothes :)

    And we still need to do the nursery but we still have time for that :)

    I'm 26 weeks pregnant and we have everything that LO could need for at least the first 3 months of her life :) We havent got anything sorted out as yet tho, still need to do some painting etc but we're hoping to have everything done by the end of October (I'm due end of Nov) as we'd rather be ready for any eventuality!

    I'm 26 weeks with twins. I have nearly everything purchased. There's just little things like wipes, and shampoo, lotions, etc. That's all I have left. The nursery is decorated and done as well.

    I am 26 weeks and I have some newborn, 0-3 months, 3-6 months clothing. Also a carseat, and some other things. I have not gone totally over board yet, but I am sure I will within the next 10 weeks.

    Im at my 6th month and already have some baby dresses. My OH will shop for baby stuff next month. I am taking a bed rest as advised by my doctor but I hope I'll be okay by next month so i can be with my OH when he buys baby stuff.

    I am almost 25 weeks and have only bought some clothes as a 24-week celebration. SO really I haven't done much at all!! I am amazed though that everyone else seems to be so well organized!!! I am not buying large stuff because I am moving cities right around due date (bad timing I know LOL) ..

    On an unrelated note - I notice you wrote 6months preg?? I'm also almost 25 weeks, but I thought I was only 5 months?? And that 28 weeks was the start of month 6?? UG! I can't get my mind around the dates LOL :shrug:

    Thanks for your replies so far! Everybody seems fairly organized already. I really need to get my butt in gear.

    Sun, the dates confuse me too...but my 'What to Expect' Books says that 6 months is from 24-27 weeks I think? And that 7 months starts at week 28. So I'm following that. It can get pretty confusing.

    We are sooo lucky my sis has twins so we are getting mostly everything big that we need. We have bought a few clothes so far have things like, nappy bucket, toiletaries and wipes (I generally buy things when I see a bargain)

    We are not getting more clothes yet as I dont know what size to get but have four or five outfits each.

    We are painting the nursery this weekend though.

    I have a list for everything and just getting bits here and there tbh. We are wanting everything done by 30 weeks xxxxxxxx

    I'm 18+4 and we haven't got much yet. I'm currently looking on Ebay for the "large stuff" (pram, bed, cotbed,...) but I'm doing this early because I wanted to have time to find "the" bargain.

    What I have now is what I already managed to buy second hand from friends and acquaintances:

    - Baby sling
    - Breast pump
    - Bath support
    - Baby bottle warmer
    - Baby bottle sterilizer

    I don't plan to buy many things in advance. What I can't find second hand, I will put on my registry and people will buy tons of clothes/bibs/teddies anyway.

    EDIT: I realise my post makes me sound like a greedy mother, lol... My main concern is our small appartment. I don't want to buy stuff weeks before the birth and realise after a few weeks I really don't need them! ;) Plus, I think buying second hand is more environmentally friendly. My baby is on team green after all ! :D And registry is a very big thing over here... People just don't know what to buy if you don't have one! :)

    I'm 19 weeks and have bouncer, bath, carrier, a few baby grows and vests, and a moses basket. Leaving most until after 20 week scan but will just get bits and pieces. As long as I've got it all by the time I'm 7 months I'll be happy :)

    I think at 15 weeks I brought a whole load of boys clothes :lol: I returned them all back cause I was crazy didn't even know the sex then and still have a week to go before I find out. I currently have family members who have brought loads of clothes and I made it known to buy unisex colours. Planning a big shopping spree as soon we find out the sex but I am not gonna buy all blue or pink etc. I am going to spend wisely and only buy things I know I will definately use e.g not going to buy books, toys just yet or even a high chair.
