We walked into a baby store on the way home from my sisters house just to have a look and walked out $6500 later!
Mind you, that was all furniture, pram, high chair and car seat!
I was always too paranoid to buy anything as things just seemed to happen too easily that I thought something had to go wrong! Luckily for me, all good!
I have not really bought anything for my last three babies until after they were born as we did not find out the sex. Even then, we didn't buy much as friends and family bought us so much each time!
All the best for your pregnancy!
Mind you I started shopping around 6 weeks, I'm due late June and already have 2 huge boxes of stuff I've collected
We didn't get to buy much while i was pregnant, as we got given everything from family members.
Bassinet, high chair, blankets, clothes, you nam it.
Our first big buy was her cot though, which we were so proud of smile
First large purchase was a mountain buggy pram with bassinette attachment. Went to five million baby stores looking at prams then found better price online ($100 cheaper through babyzonedirect) if you do buy with them buy in advance think it took about 4 weeks to come but they do state that on wesite so I wasn't concerned.
I'd been looking at them online for months and we were at the shops and I saw the one I wanted and it was on sale! So I told DH I had to have it then and there! And my mum as with us so we both convinced him it was necessary smile
I'm only 12 weeks but I've bought a stroller, car seat capsule, bath, bedding, rosking chair and cot... and then there's the things other people have bought for me! LOL! I don't really have much left to get!
Am currently pregnant with number 3 and all i have bought is some nappys and 3 winter jumpsuits in 0000.... As im having baby girl number 3 i don't really need anything exciting...
Then at about 15wks we brought a mobile and matching blanket, from then on it was a bit of everything that a baby needs!
