Just wondered what other people around 20 weeks pregnant had bought so far?

I am 23 weeks and ordered a lot of baby clothes online from the USA a couple of weeks ago as stuff is at bargin prices, given x-mas sales there and the USDGBP exchange rate. My DH brought back a full suitcase. I wouldn't buy anything else yet, but I have been doing research on strollers and eyeing furniture for the nursery.

At 20 weeks I had bought a maternity top and a few offers I'd seen on at tesco's that I had to get while they were half price or on clearance, these included baby bathing stuff, Tommie tepee bottles and teats for when she's a bit bigger (an amazing 97p) and I bought one outfit for baby - strangely picked up a girly one without realizing only to find out a week later we were expecting a girl, good job really

29+5 now and only really started doing baby shopping in the last few weeks.

25 weeks and I've bought nothing! We might start buying things in February...My very excited mother is 'secretly' buying lots of stuff from Boots, according to my sister!

I'm 23 weeks and originally vowed not to buy anything until at least 25 weeks, but I caved in once we found out we're having a girl. I've bought quite a lot of clothes in the sales, and we ordered a pushchair and car seat because it was also on sale, but thats the only 'useful' thing that we've got so far

Bought my first item today and feel a bit 'naughty'!...big time purchase of a pack of muslin squares! Am planning to do a trawl round all the items that have been offered by friends and neighbours before I buy anything else...except the pushchair which I will buy just as soon as the one I want comes round on ebay at a good price.

just ordered moses basket, stand, bath, changing mat and some white baby gro's and I'm 26 weeks now. Wanted to get more baby clothes, but would prefer to buy depending on sex, and its not co-operating

Oh gosh I need to catch up lol I'm 32 weeks and iv only got a few lil bits. If she comes early she will have a few outfits basically. Still gotta get a buggy, other clothes ,nappies ,bath stuff , Moses basket snuggle nest. The only stuff we bought around 20-24 was sterilers and bottles with a bp and a widgey pillow from the baby show. Gonna go bk in feb then literally gonna shop till I drop lol!!

Well as long as you have something to dress it in, and sleep in, its no panic if you haven't got everything We are leaving pram until after baby is here..not superstitious but will never hear end of it if I do get one, and would rather MIL kept her beak out of it. I really ought to make a list. Its a long time since I bought baby stuff. And I need a car seat. Which really bugs me as we don't have a car and rarely go out with FIL so will be spending £50 to use once

I'm 23 weeks tomorrow and have bought nothing so far. Our friends and family have already started making/giving us lots of stuff (esp. clothes) and promised more, i.e. pram, car seat, cot, sling etc. So with a little bit of luck we won't have to buy too much! I'm a bit at loss about that you need/don't need, so hoping that this way it'll be cheaper...

I am 22 weeks and only bought a few bits in the sales on DH's strict rule that only if its more than 50% off and so far got a few outfits, babygrows and bedding for our little girl.

Starting looking for other things but not going to buy the big items til the end of Feb when I will hopefully have my bonus from work!
