We bought a bib with a little crab on it before we even started TTC.  We’re both super nautical/preppy, so I saw the crab and was SOLD lol.  After I got pregnant, I held off on buying anything until we knew the gender (that was hard…) and the first things we got were a Mr and Mrs Potato head lol.  Random yes, but my niece LOVES them and they remind us of Toy Story 3 ๐Ÿ™‚

The first thing I bought was a little NY Yankees outfit.  DH wasn’t able to come to the ultrasound where I found out the gender, so on the way home I bought the outfit and gave it to him to tell him we’re having a boy.  He was really excited.  Our first major purchase was a crib though.

We bought our furniture. I haven’t bought any clothes because we got a ton at the shower. I do want to buy his “coming home” outfit because everyone else got to pick out cute baby stuff and we ended up buying things like diapers and waterproof crib pads and bottles. ๐Ÿ™

Pre-pregnancy: our crib bedding set from Pottery Barn Kids.  I needed a pick-me-up during TTC one month and that is what I wanted.

Post-pregnancy: the nursery furniture.  I didn’t want to buy anything for baby other than that until we knew what we were having AND had our shower.

Post-baby: the HAVA sling for all my babywearing needs.  I love that sling!  I wanted to wait to pick a sling so I could try them on with baby.

Still TTC, but I’ve bought a few things. First was a sleep sack from Land of Nod that had cute orange goldfish on it (our wedding theme was koi/goldfish). I was hoping that’s all I’d buy, but while shopping for a friend’s baby shower at ThinkGeek, I bought 2 bibs–one says NomNomNom and the other one says Zombie Snack (DH plays a zombie computer game). Then while still shopping for friend, I came across Rockabye Baby music. So I know how I’m going to tell him when I do get pregnant–I’ll play him lullaby music from his favorite band Queens of the Stone Age.

When we told my parents, we bought some baby items and wrapped them up under the christmas tree.  We bought things like a pack of diapers, baby oatmeal cereal, pacifiers, and some baby lotion/soap.  It was fun to see them each open the “gift” seperately and then have to put it all together.

The first thing I bought was a nursing cover, and then a boppy (through zulily and gilt).

I wanted to buy the stroller we want the week before we became pregnant (it was super cheap on gilt), but my husband had a “research, but no buying baby things until we’re pregnant” policy, and then a “don’t buy anything we can’t easily return or gift to others until we hit 12 wks” policy. Now, I wish I had bought the stinkin’ stroller.  Fingers crossed that it will be on sale  or on gilt again soon.

Pre-pregnancy:

This was only a dollar and it friggin’ glows in the dark! How cute! Had to get it. And how crazy is it I end up being due in October. It was meant to be lol. (sorry pic is so big – I can’t get it to stay resized…)

While pregnant:

So far I’ve gotten some fabric for some home-made burp clothes and a few clothes with my hub’s favorite sport’s teams logo. Holding off on buying more til we know the sex. (one more month!!!)

A sock monkey onesie from Crazy 8, but that was even before we were married!

The first item we’ve registered for was a Bumble chair and a Boppy pillow.  We’ll probably take the practical route from here on in.

I was out shopping with my bestie one day at Target and there was a University of Texas Longhorn onesie that I got pre-TTC. It was a complete impulse buy! It has an old fashioned looking stroller on it and it says “This is how I roll” haha!

My DH just shook his head at me when I showed it to him. He then made me promise to not buy any more baby stuff until I’m preggo! haha.
