I have already bought a changing pad, outfits, bottle warmer, babybjorn carrier, bumbo chair, my breast friend (pillow), bouncy chair, blankets, a couple nursery decorations, baby books, bibs, etc.
I started buying when I was TTC and it went out of control once I got my BFP.
I figure that no matter what I am going to have a baby and so if this one were not to stick that would not be the end of it, I would keep trying. But to be honest, I never really thought that this one wouldn't stick, I don't know why - guess I looked at the positive side of the statistics rather than the very small negative side.
I think it is very smart to buy early so you have longer to spread out the cost, but thats just my opinion.
With my son we bought a crib two weeks after we found out which wouldve made me about five weeks. This time i have things on my wish list on amazon and we prob wont get the bassinet and crib until much futher along. The children will be sharing a room so im not sure how to fit them both in there. Maybe i stack them on top of eachother
I've bought a picture for wee bean's room, although to be honest, I might've bought it anyway as its a gorgeous limited edition print of hot air balloons in nice pastelly colours. Noting else yet though. Thinking of new bra & belly band but don't quite need them yet. I think after my 12 week scan I'll be checking out prams, & I've already got a few things on my John Lewis wish list :-)
I will be 10 weeks tomorrow and so far I have been patient as far as buying things. I have another scan in just under two weeks, so maybe after that it will be easier. We had a miscarriage last summer & with all the summer sales we had already bought a few things - clothes, a swing, etc. After that it was really hard to see all the stuff we had sitting around the house & we put it all in storage. I know there is no way we "jinxed" things, but I don't want that to happen again. I will feel a lot more comfortable in two weeks!!
