DD was 7lbs 10oz at birth and is 5 weeks now and still mostly in NB sizes and is on NB diapers.
Baby girl was born right on time. She's outgrown some newborn stuff (at around 4 weeks) and can still wear some. Some 0-3 month stuff is still too big, but she's mostly wearing 0-3 at 6 weeks old now with some larger NB stuff thrown in.
I would hold onto until after LO is born--everyone told me I wouldn't use NB stuff, I got none at the showers, and I ended up having to buy some so she would have clothes the first month :)
My LO, born 7lbs 1oz, will be 6 weeks this Tuesday and is just now starting to outgrow her newborn onesies. The last few days she's been going through a growth spurt and getting bigger almost overnight. Her doctor visit last Monday she was already over 10lbs.
sadie+w:My LO was 8 lb 5 oz at birth and wore nb for about three weeks.
He wore newborn clothing for 6 weeks and a handful still fit and 7 weeks. Now, at 8 weeks, almost all of it is put away. (He was 8 lbs 5 oz at birth and is 10 lbs 10 oz now.)
My baby was born at 37 weeks too, and he dropped down to 6lbs after that first week. He was in NB clothes for 6 weeks or so. I had to go out and buy some onsies because I was only given 0-3 and he floated in those. I just did a lot of laundry because I didn't have a lot in that size. He's wearing 0-3 now, but I don't think he'll be in them as long as he's 10 weeks old, 12 lbs and getting to the edge of any 0-3 sizes with footies.
I just washed up his 3 month sized clothes yesterday as I am expecting in the next week or so he'll be in them. He's EBF.
DD was 9 lbs 6 oz and 20.5" at 37 weeks...we didn't even get to wear the NB stuff once! Luckily, it was mostly hand-me-downs. The rest I was able to exchange.
DS was 9 lbs 1oz and 20.5" at 40 weeks, but he was able to wear NB for a few weeks. He was also a summer baby, so most of it didn't have feet and sleeves to be too short.
DD was born @ 39 weeks weighing 6 lbs 2 oz, way smaller than I ever thought. My mom bought us some NB stuff and a friend let us borrow some things. We had only bought size 1 diapers and 0-3 month clothing, so we needed new diapers, too!
She's just over 3 weeks now and we're just starting to put her in 0-3 month stuff now, and it's still pretty big on her, but NB stuff is getting a bit tighter on her, especially in the length. Her diapers are fitting her now, whereas before she was swimming in them! BTW she's FF so that may make a difference, too. Honestly, it seems so hard to know for sure what sizes you'll need until LO is here.

My daughter was born at 39 wks and weighed 6lbs 3oz. and was 19in long. By the time we left the hospital she had went down to 5lbs. 8oz. She had a good amount of NB clothes but hubby and I had to go out and buy her some preemie sleepers and diapers. Now at just over 3 wks she weighs abt 6lbs 14oz and is still using NB clothes. 3 mth clothes still fit her big......may be due to the fact that she is very lean.
