    My OH Says I Can't Buy Anything (Which Is Really Hard Considering I Work In Ethel Austins Which Sells Lots Of Baby Things!)

    Even Though I Have Got A Few Things (Tops), And Chose My Pram (Not Bought)

    And This Is Only My First Month TTC! Arghhh

    Has Anyone Else Bought Anything For There UnConceviced!

    Or Really Thought About It!

    No, I don't dare because it's bad luck :( I'm not even superstitious but some things I don't wanna mess with). Probably won't buy anything until 12 week scan and then go nutso, once bitten twice shy and all that. My friend bought me a recycled toy for xmas that is suitable from birth so I am keeping that to one side...

    **EDIT** lol I chose my pram too :)

    I haven't bought anything yet, but have most things picked out already, pram, cot etc.....I'm scared of actually buying anything in case I jinx myself! But I'm always buying pregnancy and baby magazines though, I just can't help it. :dohh:

    Other then preg/baby magazines, I haven't 'bought' anything.. OH has a strict rule on spending anything until I am well and truely preggers! I don't however, have any rules against winning things, so find myself entering all sorts of competitions in the hope of getting stuff! :rofl: So far I've won a baby gro sleeping bag and a spin and explore gym! They're in our spare room in cupboards so I don't constantly see them.

    Not actually bought anything yet but often find myself browsing in the Mothercare store, day dreaming about what I will buy when the time comes. I always feel really shifty when I'm in there though as if the shop assistants know I am not actually preggers yet and therefore shouldn't be in there :rofl:

    I have been pregnant before, but only early, and it never worked out. I have a lot of books about pregnancy, little tiny socks my mother gave me, a memory box for when I get pregnant (decorated) and have baby, and several baby blankets...:blush: So, needless to say, I'm worse than all of you put together :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    I love looking at baby things!!! I LOVE IT!!!

    I love to buy for my pregnant friends and well recently someone said they were expecting so I went and bought : A baby spa (tub), and bottles.... well I came to find out she lied about being pregnant so I kept both things. lol

    I have already chosen a nursery pattern for a boy and for a girl :rofl:

    Nope, I'm afraid to even look at anything. I don't want to jinx it.

    No I"M worse than all of you. I had a "baby box" before we were even ttc. It's one of those rubbermaid tubs that I keep in the basement :) I have periodically seen things that I thought I just couldn't live without (toys blankets etc) Last year my Grandmother went home to visit her brother in Scotland and brought back some BEAUTIFUL handknit items for us "when the time came". Then a couple months ago my mom gave me a sizeable shopping bag FULL of adorable stuff... girl only :rofl:
    I think we're all neurotic. haha mental ilness... it runs deep in my family :rofl:

    I have managed not to buy anything so far... although that doesn't mean I haven't been looking! I have pretty much chosen the pram I want.

    We weren't going to have any more children, so have given away all of our baby stuff as Freya grew out of it. The only thing we still have is the cot because we borrowed that off a family member, so need to replace pretty much everything. It's annoying, because of the expense, but also fun because we get to look for stuff all over again. Plus we can learn from experience. For example I would never buy another 3 wheeled buggy. :)
