Thankfully we don't have too much to stock up on this time around.  I think my biggest tip would be to beg and borrow when you can!  Little ones go through things and grow sooooo quickly and if you can borrow items, you'll save a ton!

We actully took a big step and bought this baby a blanket yesterday!! Normally after my loss we have no boughten anything until around the point of viability, so this is a huge step for us. we got an adorable gender neutral chevron blanket. All our kiddos are very close in age, so they will be able to resuse the bigger items, but they are totally different seasons so we will need to get mostly all new clothes no matter what gender this baby is.
