I agree..wait until you are into the 2nd trimester! I would wait for clothes until you know the gender. But around 17 or 18 weeks i would probably get a crib dresser bottles if you are going to bottle feed or a breast pump if you are breastfeeding. Then once you know the sex get gender specific things if you want.

i say....after you find out the gender....around 20ish weeks....that way you have a good choice of stuff to buy bc then youll know what colors you want and the perfect items :)

i did not find out the gender with my first and i am doing that again because i am having my last. there are more then enough unisex baby colors so its ok not to stress out. it was the best thing in the world hearing its a boy. the most magical moment in my life.
