hooded towels, receiving blankets, little mitts so the baby won't scratch their face.
If you are having a baby shower you could wait to see what you get?

I have had to stop myself from buying yet haha
With my last baby I got to much stuff for my baby shower haha I didn't even use some of it because I had to much. I would have had to change her like 10 times a day for her to wear all her baby clothes haha. I still have baby wash and penatin cream lol! That seems to be peoples go to's for a baby shower, clothes, diaper cream and baby wash :P
I say if you see something just to cute not to get then get it :) but other than that until your baby shower try to hold off

When I was pregnant with my daughter, the only thing I bought was a pair of onesies. I didn't really start to buy anything major (or anything else at all) until I was 7 months pregnant.

I had my shower pretty close to the end, my mom threw it for me. I think this time I will have it sooner because I was just exhausted by the end of it lol, and I will probably feel more prepared having everything sooner, and it will give me more time to wash and sanitize everything.

The only thing I bought before finding our the gender was the carseat for both pregnancies. The reason for that with my first was the fact that we were having a baby shower and I didn't want to buy stuff that is usually gifted for that. Also, I didn't want to buy to early, in case god forbid, something happened to the baby.

I am 29 weeks with my first baby and I have had a few "I MUST HAVE THIS" type items.

Arms Reach CoSleeper
Dual electric breast pump
swaddlers
I have purchased a box of wipes and a box of diapers of various sizes each time I make my grocery run to the store.
receiving blankets
onesies/sleepers/socks
snot suckers
mamaroo
moby skin to skin wrap
Okkatots depot travel backpack diaper bag
We chose the Britax B-Safe and the B-Agile travel system.
We have a crib, changing table, rocker with ottoman in his room, but will be using the cosleeper in our room at night. I also bought a portable changing table to have in our room, the living room, etc for convenience.
We chose the 4Moms infant clean water tub.
We have started stocking up on baby soap, powder, lotion, and oil.
We have a couple baby gates to keep the dog out of whatever room the baby is in so we won't have to shut the door.
Baby monitor (even though I probably won't be away from him long enough to even use one for months lol)
We bought the pad you put under them to sense if they don't take a breath for so long.
Mimijumi bottles (supposed to be awesome for breastfed babies...we'll see)
Itzbeen baby care timer- keeps track of your baby's diaper changing, feeding and sleeping schedules. 

I guess we had a lot of must haves... lol. That's a first baby and FTM for ya. Haha
