WTT #1 and Buying Baby Things...


I definitely cannot help myself from looking super-cute baby outfits/other baby things, and I've even bought a few baby items already, even though we aren't even TTC yet! OH thinks I'm insane! Sometimes it's therapeutic! When I'm feeling broody, I get my little baby outfits out and I think about how great it will be when I can actually put a tiny, living body in it!

So far I have purchased FOUR outfits (3 boy, 1 girl).

So what I want to know is who else has done this? And what have you bought?

I must admit I was too scared to contemplate buying anything baby related before I fell pregnant. I didn't want to tempt fate. Even after my 12 week scan I only bought one neutral babygro. I didn't start buying until after my 20 week scan!

Now I'm wtt though I do occasionally get out Summer's first outfit and look at how tiny it is and can't believe she ever fit into it. Her going home outfit was neutral so I want to use it for our next babies coming home outfit so I do like to imagine a new baby in it though!

Lots of my friends that dont have kids yet have got bottom drawers full of baby stuff though so I definitely don't think you'll be alone in buying bits before ttc! It's so tempting with all the cute stuff around. It took a hell of a lot of restraint on my part to not buy anything!

When I was 18 I bought this little salt dough teddy bear that hangs on the wall. That was 7 years ago! Just because I wanted to be the first person to buy something for my baby and wanted him or her to know that I had been thinking about them for a long time! How's that for weird.

I have a few bits mainly bits I have bought for other people and then decided they are too cute and I want to keep them we have a box under the spare bed. We both love roo, so the only thing we have purposely bought for our baby is a little roo taggy from tesco

I haven't bought anything yet, but my mum bought 2 sets of baby knives and forks (they had no spoons), a set for me and a set for her when the baby visits Grandma. I always stop and have a wander around the baby sections in shops but haven't bought anything yet.

I have a cute little butterfly hat that I bought in the Next sale a few years ago. I'm keeping that for my daughter (if i have one!). I'd love to go buying stuff but i don't want to tempt fate either. I don't think i'd buy anything until my 12 week scan.

When I was TTC number one I couldn't bring myself to buy anything until I had had my 12 week scan.

I think if I did buy something before i'd get something neutral. I found it fun going out after LO was born buying pink stuff

That's lovely

I've been trying not to buy anything for so long (love buying baby bits for my friends who've had babies), but now I could actually be doing it for real soon I can't seem to buy anything! I've walked around the shops and had stuff in my hands to buy but can't bring myself to do it!!
