    I bought 4 "onesies" after my scan last week but we won't be buying much until after Christmas which works well as my 13 week scan is just after Christmas.

    At this point we'll start slowly buying things! :) (But we've already "chosen" most of our big items).

    I think I am going to wait until I know genders mainly because I have a bunch of my daughters baby clothes and my sister's baby clothes (all girl stuff). So, if I have a boy, I can have fun buying some boy stuff!!

    I have also picked out most of my big stuff...but I will probably wait until in the week of the 20's to buy all that.

    I won't be buying anything till end of January. I need to worry about getting my boys uniforms and books etc for the begining of the next years school year (which is 27th Jan).
    I already have a cot from my boys, so I will be looking for another cot second hand. I will start stocking up on nappies etc at the end of Jan, just got too much to worry about and pay out in the next couple of months.

    Since we want to wait until the gender scan to buy much, I've concentrated that urge on comfy maternity clothes... Woohoo! :smug:

    Buying cloth nappies after a successful 12 week scan (2 more days!). I bought a hammock at 10 weeks last time and then found out I had a MMC, so waiting a bit longer this time.
    After that maybe one- two things a month. Things that are easy to stash away first, ie no carseats or strollers until much later.

    I bought a bodysuit from the football team that my hubby supports as a way of telling him but that's all we have bought so far.

    We may buy a few little bits and pieces after our 12 week scan, but I guess the most of stuff we buy will be after 20 week scan :) x
