You are far from the only one, it's the most exciting thing! And those clothes are so little and cute! I bought a couple of things before 12 weeks, I felt it was allowed as they were good value! I say go for it!
I remember my mom was do superstitious when she had my brother (I was 15 back then) she didn't want to buy anything whatsoever!! So once she delivered the baby and all was ok my dad and I walked out of the hospital (while mom was still there) and bought literally everything what was needed from bottles and nappies to baby-bed, changing table and pram. And so e basic clothes only cause a few days later we were buried in presents of baby clothes
I'm feeling exactly the same! I'm only 6 weeks but me and my mum spent ages in Next the other day looking at the gorgeous tiny clothes! It's so hard not to buy anything yet. Have told myself I'm allowed to buy after 12 weeks. I guess it's your own personal choice though. Have fun whenever you decide it's time :D
I can't wait to get started buying.loads of cute stuff, I'm 10 weeks at the moment and I've resisted so far. my mum has started knitting.already though and she's already asking if I want a pram or a cot blanket
Im 14 weeks with dc 3. I dont really need much just some clothes as dc2 is only 13 montus and I got rid of all her clothes. I bought a towel that looks like a duck yesterday and my mum bought me my tandem buggy which is coming on monday other than that im pretty much sorted. Going to wait until I know what im having before buying clothes
Chances are everything will be fine so I would buy away. I'm 24 weeks now but still haven't bought that much other than the pram and car seat. I have all of DS's clothes which are enough to not buy anything else at all other than bibs. You will get an unbelievable amount of presents too. I got things sent from distant cousins, people who I'd never met at my mam's work! Plus people have baby showers now. I've said I don't want one but I know my different groups of friends are planning at least two possibly three for me so I don't want to buy much.
We planned to wait til the day after the 12w scan with DD, then I needed a second 12w scan a fortnight later as it was booked too early! The suspense drove me nuts! Then we bought one brand new outfit to bring her home in (everything else was going to be from charity shops/car boot sales). Unfortunately we didn't know "tiny baby" was different to "0-3m"
This time I bought a massively cute babygro at 5w, the day I got a bfp. It was how I told DH - I showed him that days shopping and waited for it to click!
That is extremely true about the presents! This child has 7 grandparents (due to remarrying) and is the first grandchild for all of them. It's going to be so spoilt! I probably won't actually need to buy many clothes but I'm so tempted to go and get a whole wardrobe load!
I've been wanting a baby ever since I was about 16. 8 years is a long time to fantasise about it
I couldnt look at baby stuff for about 20 weeks as I was so sick & looking at things just reminded how crap I felt! I've caught up now tho there's so many things to choose from it's so hard to decide what's essential & what's not
