Since we found out the sex @20 weeks :)
We find out the sex on the 11th and thats when we are starting
If you want to follow her advice then maybe start a registry list of the things you need and want. Start doing your research on brands and looking at reviews on what best suits your budget and so forth. Start putting money away and when 5 months come get the items your not going to ask for if you were to have a shower. That way you can maybe get that shopping itch out of the way by just having a better idea of what you need and your still following mama's advice. :)
I didn't buy anything till I found out what I was having then I just bought 2 lil shirts.. I had my baby shower this weekend and got stuff.. so now I will see what I need and will add as time goes by
Yea I was thinking about that baby registry never have done one this my fourth baby and my youngest is five. I have to get everything all over again we have nothing for my new baby girl.I do want to always keep my mother advise especially since she is not with us but it's killing me not to shop. lol I sike myself out and say after Christmas I will start since I do have three other children to shop for right now but it's so hard. And I love shopping
I want to so bad!! Im 18 weeks and havent bought anything yet.. i have been looking at cribs tho :) i hope to soon!
When I found out the gender at 18w I bought a few outfits here and there didn't buy much because I had planned on a baby shower... I had my baby shower at 28 weeks and got a ton of stuff. Almost everything I needed. So, since then been slowly buying the extra stuff I needed.
I think I think like your mother lol I found out the sex at 17 weeks but I didn't start shopping until 6 months in.
We shopped after 15 weeks (and only waited that long because I miscarried my first time at 15 weeks) - I can't not shop lol
We decided not to find out the gender and our baby wasn't given a good chance of getting past 24wks but we still wanted to remain optimistic and excited so went shopping at 20wks and put it all on layaway. Now 32wks and its so exciting to have it all and getting ready to meet bub. Good luck!
This will hopefully be our second baby (we've had two losses at 11 and 12 weeks) and we're not finding out gender. We have nearly all of our 3.5yo son's clothes and cloth diapers and gear saved. The only things we need are car seats and a crib, so we're not planning on a shower (plus I think they're tacky after the first child unless they're like 6+years apart). Those things will probably be bought somewhere near the beginning of my third trimester, so probably around 27-30 weeks.
I put a boys outfit and a girls outfit on lay buy at 14 weeks and a new car seat.
I'm not sure about a baby sHower even though by the time I drop my baby my daughter will be six. Since I know I have to buy everything I was just gonna do that but my mil was talking to me about a shower
