Congrats!! I like to wait till the third trimester personally. Something to look forward to rather than buying everything and waiting 9 months LOL

like

Congrats! Depends on a couple of things 1) Are you doing a registry and 2) Is mom high-risk or do you have any reason to believe baby could arrive early in third trimester? If the answer to either is yes, I recommend shopping second trimester (20-24 weeks). It gives you an mom time to get aligned on what you want for baby, create your registry, and share it with others

As long as it’s not high risk, buy diapers now. They go so quickly
