Did I jinx myself?


I don't know why, but I am one of those who don't buy anything for the baby until I feel....I dunno, safer in the pregnancy? (I have two kids).
I'm so afraid something will go wrong and buying something for the bean before it's even conceived seems like I would be too cocky and I will get a slap in the face.

I KNOW it won't matter if I already got a whole nursery ready with pram and all, but I guess it's the superstitious part of me that I can't shake.

ANYWAY!

I'm not even pregnant - and I think chances are I won't be - seeing as I'm 43 and won't consider IVF....but I just thought it would be so cute to dress our dog up in "I'm going to be a big sister!" T-shirt for OH when (if) I get my BFP - so I ordered it off the internet today.

And now I'm sitting here thinking that I just spoiled my chances of ever getting pregnant and that little doggie t-shirt will lay in some drawer mocking me until I have to throw it away because it makes me too sad to look at

Have any of you ladies bought anything for the bean to be?

I feel your pain... feel I have jinxed myself too.
Silly as I am not superstitious normally.
I haven't bought anything for baby but did get two playsuits for me for my holidays at end of July, 2 sizes too big lol, Both bought specifically because they would accommodate a small bump nicely and larger to take into account bigger boobs/ hips etc.
They were in the sale so not a fortune but why????? why - I was SO sure that I would get my BFP this month, and be 16weeks pregnant by then. Its not as if I will get any wear out of them at all; even if I do get my BFP in 3/4 months - it will be winter by the time they'll fit me. That's if it does happen at all.

Also haven't bought yet -but have picked out a t-shirt for my youngest son to wear once we have conceived .

Also, Worked out my maternity leave, worked out how many days left to work, and decided on how to tell certain members of the family

xxxx
ps AF due today but nothing yet and BFN

Keep looking at baby names - and thinking about when and how to break the news.
Makes me feel...I dunno....guilty in some way, like I'm ruining it for myself...silly, I know. Weird how the mind works
