I'm at 25 weeks now and have bought very little really, we wanted to wait until after the 20 week scan just in case. I started buying little bits and pieces straight away and bought my pram at 13 weeks. Babyproofing The necessities not an issue until 4 months or later:
Going shopping for new items for your baby? Here are the must-haves and the don't-needs to help you shop smart. Around the House Register at a baby gear store and you may be given a list that's even longer than this one.

Just for Fun First toys No necessities, but it's nice to have: After the 20 scan we bought the bigger things like the pram and the nursery items and now we have pretty much everyting sorted. Don't worry about clothes too much because people will probably buy you all those much nearer the time. I hope this helps. I didnt find out i was pregnant until 7 weeks and was 9 when i dccided to keep the baby due to really difficult circumstances i booked in for a termination but changed my mind last minute - thank god!!!!
I started buying little bits and pieces straight away and bought my pram at 13 weeks. I put away money every month and bought stuff in as and when i could. Im 22 weeks 3 days and so far i have: I dont fancy hobbling around shopping in agony and now i can TRY at least relax If anyone can think of anything else i need to add to my list it would be greatly appreciated lol xxxxxxxxx.
I personally didnt buy anything till after 24 weeks last time or this time but only cuz we lost our 1st baby at 23 weeks sorry dnt mean to put a downer on any1 its like my safe zone really! Am a bit freaked by this topic as I'm 15 weeks and haven't bought a thing yet!
We do know which travel system we'll be getting probably order this after 20 weeks scan and we are looking for the smallest cot possible.
Also seen a foldable bath which I'll be buying we have a very very small house. As for anything else - I don't think I even know what would be needed but might use Melissa's list as a bit of a start!
Also, not started saving for when I'm on maternity leave - was hoping to put away quite a lot this month then had the house painted and now I'm skint.
Not many wages left now! Can't believe you've all been sneaking out to the shops without me! Hi Gemma I was so worried anything might happen that the only thing I bought initially was a soother blanket after we had our first scan, then we bought nothing til after 24 weeks and since finding out we are having a girl at 27 weeks have gone mad.
It's your own personal choice, but like others have siad if you decide to buy quite early you may get sick of things or see something new on the market you prefer on in the sales after you ahve paid full price, personally I looked all the time, window shopped went on internet so it felt like I was shopping and found exactly what i wanted and sometimes for less than I initally found it for.
Did not buy anything until after 22 week scan Totally up to you when you feel comfortable buying things. I'm waiting till after the 12 week scan or 13 in my case. I'll know that so far everything is fine then and will feel safe to go and buy stuff. I've planned everything I want though and done lots of internet window shopping got a wish list in mothercare. In a way I am now pretty pleased I got most of my stuff earlier coz my SPD is now so bad I have to use a wheelchair when I go shopping which is pretty limiting with a OH like mine!
If he doesnt think we need it - he doesnt stop! Sbradley, I think that's a lovely idea buying one little outfit after the week scan and storing it away for baby to come home from the hospital in. I'm going to steal it if you don't mind! I'm at 25 weeks now and have bought very little really, we wanted to wait until after the 20 week scan just in case.
Went shopping last sunday hoping to pick up the big stuff like a cot, but couldn't find what we wanted, got our pushchair ordered at least though.
It's very much a personal choice thing, but I wouldn't leave it too late. I would buy the pram, cot etc before 7 months if I were you, because a baby might arrive early b you will be feeling big and tired by then and may not want to trawl around shops for long and c You might have the same problem that we did, that stuff was out of stock so you end up having to go back again.
Anyways, congratulations on the pregnancy and have fun with the shopping whenever you decide is right for you!
